Marketing Help for small businesses in 2010

After experiencing a downfall in the economy during 2009, Small to medium enterprises are becoming little more careful when spending on marketing activities. I had been working in the online markeing industry for over 6 years now and helping small businesses by utilizing the best features of online marketing. While reading the post on emarketer (www.emarketer.com), I had understood that SME managers or owners will become more opitmisitc towards social media in 2010. Look at survey results in the below image, it clearly says that if the business manager combines usage of social media marketing and email marketing it would give high ROI (Return on Investment) compared to other advertising mediums. (Look at the above image carefully, it says Search engine marketing is on third rank, interesting huh?)

If we blend social media and email marketing well, it would give the gretest results for the business. If you want the proof of the same, go through the image below which clearly says that approx. 27% of total 1,057 business executives or business development managers had already formulated and implemented the marketing strategy with social media and email marketing tools. What are you waiting for?

Email Marketing: E-mail marketing is a form of direct marketing which uses electronic mail as a means of communicating commercial or fundraising messages to an audience. In its broadest sense, every e-mail sent to a potential or current customer could be considered e-mail marketing. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_marketing)

Social Media Marketing: Social media marketing is a term that describes use of social networks, online communities, blogs, wikis or any other online collaborative media for marketing, sales, public relations and customer service. Common social media marketing tools include Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_media_marketing)

Hope this post will help Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) owners or Business Development Managers to formulating rock solid marketing strategy for 2010!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you and your family!

How small businesses (especially non-technical business owners) can utilize Web 2.0 (mainly blogging) to increase the sales

2988424007_d890f79986Web 2.0 is not only about technical tools it is more about listening your customer’s voice more deeply. When you look around, you will find almost all global companies have a team called “Customer Feedback Team” but how many of these businesses actually implement the same to improve their businesses.

Web 2.0 has lot of benefits but the most important one is that it gives a Customer full freedom to discuss about the product or services business around him currently offering.

Web 2.0 is also referred to as “Social Media”. We have bunch of popular social media tools like:

If we study online researches being conducted in the past, we can say out of all popular social media tools currently available, Blogging is one of the most favorite among the Internet savvy customers. (According to Universal McCann research report, 72.5% people read blogs compared to 63.2% people visit a photo sharing website). I hope you have got my point here, yes correct, start utilizing the most popular web 2.0 tools to increase your business. “Create a blog”.

The best part is you don’t need to spend a single penny to create a blog. You can utilize following free blogging services to create a blog for your business: (Top 10 results on the Google Search Engine)

Most of these services offer free hosting also, what you need is the best customer-rich information about your products and services.

Only to have a blog is not enough!

You can look around, there are many organizations now have a blog. What we are missing here is the good natural contents to post on the blog. I recommend you organize the blog by taking the following steps, I am sure your prospects will definitely enjoy reading your blogs and will contact you for either purchasing your product or utilizing your professional services.

Blog Title – It should be simple, clear and concise so the prospects understand what your blog all about is.

Blog Tagline – It is normally displayed exactly under the Blog Title. Remember the phrase “First impression is everything”, utilize the tagline the best possible way.

Blog Theme – I suggest use nice, clear and professional looking theme. (White background preferred)

Blog Posts – Answer this simple question in details before writing any blog post: “How would your customer be benefited reading your posts?” (hidden question should be “How would you motivate the customer about purchasing a specific product after reading a post?”)

– Set up proper blog categories and tags with each post.

– Place atleast 1 image on each post to make it more attractive.

– Don’t do direct marketing on the blogs, prospects are not interested. Prospects are more interested in finding about how they can satisfy their current needs. Provide nice tips, product reviews and tricks on various topics related to your industry.

I can provide you free consultation on how to setup a blog.

IP Cameras – Secure your businesses while you are away!

Howdy,

Security is extremely important these days.¬† While doing an online research, I have come up with few nice links where you can learn more about IP Camera phones. IP Camera phone is an electronic device which can capture the video recording and supply you over the internet. So if you are on the business tour in france and wants to keep an eye on your office in London, United Kingdom, you can buy one of the IP Camera and install it in your UK based office buildings. You can then see the live recording the same in France. Isn’t it a brilliant idea to secure your workplace?
