5 Digital Marketing Tips for New Businesses
by Yello Oct 17, 2019
You’ve established your new business and it’s time to let people know about it and more importantly, get customers. The reality is that many new businesses will fail, as many entrepreneurs know all too well.
Potential customers are constantly bombarded with hundreds of messages in this digitally driven world. And standing out in that very crowded sea can be very difficult for a new business, just getting its feet wet, with a small and limited budget. However, there are some ways to help make your business stand out better.
- Know Who You Are – Sounds simple and pedestrian doesn’t it? However, the truth is one of the first ways in which many new businesses fail is simply by not being able to define what the business really is. If you cannot define your brand, then you likely cannot define what makes it unique and if you cannot do that, then you cannot convince a potential customer that you are worth investing in.
- Know Your Target Audience – Piggy-backing off the first point, if you cannot accurately define who you are as a business and a brand, then you may likely also struggle to accurately define your target audience. And if you cannot define your target audience than you won’t really know how best to reach them.
- Have a Clear and Concise Strategy – Once you have established your brand identity and target audience accurately, the next step is to construct a clear and concise digital marketing strategy. A common mistake many new businesses make with their digital marketing efforts is that they try to be all things to everyone, throwing out content on as many platforms as possible, etc. hoping something sticks. That is a surefire way to not only fail but also waste a lot of money that your business likely cannot afford to lose. Having a solid road map for what you want to achieve with your digital marketing efforts, your short-term and long-term goals, objectives, etc. is imperative to a successful digital marketing strategy.

- Quality Website – This is a given. You simply cannot have an effective digital marketing strategy without constructing a quality website.

- Mobile is Not an Option – We live in an age where most individuals have their whole lives attached to their hands at all times, via a mobile device. Long gone are the days when a business owner decided whether to have a regular website or a mobile-friendly one. Now, it is simply a MUST to ensure that your website is mobile-friendly if your digital marketing efforts are to be successful.
