Do you have plans to start a new business this year or you already started one this January? Whatever your plans are, I am sure you are excited about your business idea. As you put plans in place to begin this entrepreneurship journey whether as a sole proprietor, partnership or a Limited liability company, it is important to note that promoting a new business takes strategizing and fresh ideas. Otherwise, it’s challenging to get your new business noticed. Here are 5 ways to promote a new small business in 2021.
Pick the right name for your business
You’re a name for your business could mean the difference between failure and success. You want to pick a name that not only tells consumers (whether B2B or B2C) what your company does but also targets the right customers. It should be a name you can build your brand around. Once you’ve narrowed the name down, don’t forget to conduct a search with the Corporate Affairs commission and the Trademark Registry under the Class your product or service falls under. If you haven’t, make sure you do!
Get a Website!
Consumer bahaviour changes over time to adapt to modern technology and at the moment this has changed to adapt to the digital age as more consumers have realized that with the internet they can now find whatever they need faster online. Their behavior has changed from using printed materials.
There is no doubt that the internet is usually the first place potential consumers will look to find out more about you and your business. This is why you should not only have a website but you should also think of your website as the front door of your business. Your website should inform, excite, and promote your business products and services.
Secure All Your Social Media Handles
In this digital age, you will find that most of your digital marketing efforts will start with social media, but it’s important to know the platforms’ demographics. Facebook was the be-all of social media, if your target customers are teens or consumers in their early 20s, you won’t find many of them on Facebook anymore. While Twitter users are primarily young people between 18-24 and then 30-49, you find that if you are a B2B Company, LinkedIn is a must. Also of note is that Instagram users are primarily between 18-29, while most Snapchat users are 15-25 years old.
Once you’ve created your social media pages, don’t forget to post consistently and study the platforms’ analytics to see where you’re getting the most activity. Then you can focus your efforts on the platforms where you know your customers are spending the most time.
Promoting your business online means creating ways for consumers to discover you online. Yes, advertising works, but you need to include content on your website for organic promotional purposes. Pick topics relating to the services you offer using catchy headings.
Blogging increases SEO power and improves your website’s search ranking. Blogging also shows potential customers you are an expert in your field and on top of the latest trends. Once you post a blog, promote it on your social media platforms to increase traffic to your website.
Some of the places customers look for new business recommendations are online local search directories such as Google or Yahoo. Get signed up with these online directories. A common one is the Google my business directory which has proven to be very effective for busniesses over the years. Make sure the directories have all your correct and current information such as address, hours of operation, and phone number. Potential customers tend to ask many questions on these search directories and go on to another company if you don’t answer quickly.
