Did you know that by 2020, the majority of people either employed or running their own businesses will be millennials. It’s scary to see so many businesses who are not adapted to selling to this genre, which is phone based. Says Sharyn McCaskey.
There is a great YouTube video of a two-year-old talking to her mum saying that her iPad is broken and she wants her to fix it, the child was looking at a magazine, consider this, people no longer ask for taxi’s they call for an Uber.
Doing business, the digital way means you must be available 24/7, have a responsive website, this means that your site opens effectively to whatever device it is on, a desktop, a phone or iPad. A business needs to be listed on about 50 free on line directories and have a strong and regularly actioned and interactive social media platform, suited to their industry. Sounds daunting but it’s not.
Simply create a list of what you need to be focused on and chip away at getting it done, within a few short months you can be internet dominant. Most what you need to action is FREE, it’s just time consuming. But investing in this time creates results that equals new customers and ease for existing ones, the happier and easier it is for your customers the more money they spend in your establishment.
Malibu Fresh Essentials is in discussions with a blog writer, recently it created a responsive and interactive website, the Instagram account gains followers daily and the business has a strong loyal following on Facebook, one recent post was shared over 5000 times and the post was seen by over 395,000 people, this one post was instrumental in gaining many new shoppers to the store.
Mdvs Business Services director Sharyn McCaskey manages the social media of several local businesses and understands that being real and genuine via social media is what people like, social media is that social, people do not respond when being sold at but feel connected to a business when being sold to. The nuance of understanding that is what makes a social media presence successful.
Here are some ways to keep evolving and stay ahead in business:
1. Create at least two social media platforms that suits your business.
2. Learn how to schedule posts so that a post will go out daily, action about a weeks’ worth in advance.
3. Use Facebook as this won the social media wars, download the app Pages and use it in conjunction with your phone to create 30 second videos about your business.
4. If you don’t know, attend a social media course, the cost is a tax write off.
5. You don’t need to be perfect you just need to do it, now.
There have been so many businesses facing financial issues over the last few years, those which haven’t have one thing in common, they adapted to today’s marketing trends.
