Small business owners have many things in common, but the most common thread is, how busy they are. However, how many would like to be busier and grow their business further?
Making efforts to go digital in a competitive local marketplace not only shows the community you’re a quality professional, but also helps them become more aware of your products or services. Small businesses owners should embrace the digital age, as it has lowered barriers and allows them to compete with larger brands.
Using digital communication as a tool for local connections is more relevant than ever before. Marketing is no longer about spewing out advertisements on press and radio; it’s about creating a community where your brand and customers can have positive experiences.
But how do small businesses tap into this to make meaningful connections with their customers and community? The answer is simple. Small businesses must put time and energy into digital efforts in order to see success and grow their operation. However, this is where many small businesses fall down, they don’t have the time or won’t commit the time or a resource to this task, preferring to prioritise dealing with the day to day running of their business. Nothing wrong with that if you recognise you are missing out and are prepared to take action.

We don’t offer to post or tweet on your behalf, for 2 good reasons:
Only you or a trusted employee are in a position to talk knowledgeably about your business, be able to interact with your audience and answer queries quickly online.
Your social media accounts should have a personality that reflect yours and only you can portray a passion for your business. People need to get to know you, not just your business on social media, if you want to build local brand loyalty.
What we do offer is to take the load off you and ensure your business has an effective digital structure in place, allowing you to concentrate on other aspects of your business while building your local audience on social media. So when you post or tweet it is being seen by potential customers.
