What is stopping you?

Utah Social MediaIf you could increase your business and you haven’t yet? What’s stopping you? It’s the unknown, it’s the “I’m going to waste my time”. That kind of thinking is all wrong, you cannot afford that thinking in today’s world of marketing.

I had a client who I designed a website for and did some promotional work around it. His business boomed, he thanked me and sent me on my way. Now 2 years later, he has come back to me and said that his business is failing, he needs a new website. The website is misguided, it’s the marketing around the new site that made the business boom. His social marketing was non-existent.

I created and curated his brand on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. He had some following on YouTube, but not much. Those have all been stagnant for 2 years now and he’s been hurting for some time, now he’s desperate. His thinking is very old-school and doesn’t see how social networking can possibly help his business. After showing him again where the leads were coming from back when his new site was designed, he started to understand. The marketing world is so different from 2 years ago, it requires new thinking.

With that in mind, I’m starting a new campaign for him, social marketing is what you need and we’re here to make you stand out!

Compelling reasons to be on Pinterest

Pinterest for small business

When your business is on social media, most business don’t think to start a Pinterest page for their business. Most think of the usual Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, but Pinterest isn’t for businesses, right? Wrong. Think of who is on Pinterest. According to DMR Stats, Pinterest has 100 million active users, why wouldn’t you want those eyes on your business?!?

Almost 1/3rd of all social media traffic is all on Pinterest. Now it’s not as easy as just starting a Facebook page, you have to create compelling content that is begging to be shared or pinned. The reward is there though, many business have switched from traditional media to Pinterest and have seen great results.

This is especially crucial if your target market involves women as nearly 42% of all adult women are on Pinterest and 85% of Pinterest’s total users are female. This is a huge opportunity for all types of businesses today and should not be ignored! The time to act is now.
