Three Marketing Resolutions for 2011
Its that time of year again. The time of year when resolutions are made…and broken.
But it’s a great time for reflecting upon where you’ve been and where you want to go with your small business. Use 2011 as the year to bring your business up to speed – technology is just the thing to help propel your business to the next level.
Here are 3 ways to thrust your small business into Super Success mode in 2011:
1. Market with mobile. If you haven’t started thinking about putting a mobile marketing program together, now is the time. Mobile is definitely where the action is. But oddly very few people have caught on. Be a trail blazer in your market and watch the dollars roll in.
2. Think video. If you are not yet using video to market your company, start now. Video will get you more traffic and more prospects than you can imagine. And you don’t have to be a Hollywood producer. For Christmas, treat yourself to a Flip camera and a tripod. Put together a list of twenty frequently asked questions (you know the questions that your consumers are always asking?) For each question, make a one to two minute video you’re your ‘expert’ answer. Post each video on as many video sharing sites as you can. Including YouTube of course.
3. Claim your Google Places listing. If you’re a local business, go to Google Places and claim your business listing right now. Be sure to include your address, phone number, store hours, the credit cards you accept, photos, video and a coupon. Don’t let your neighborhood competitor beat you to the punch.
Although simple, these 3 steps will help you get your business of to a successful start in 2011. Don’t stop here – use them as building blocks to grow your small business and see more profits and leave a comment with your 2011 business resolutions.
