Is it always for the best to concentrate on nothing but your bottom line? This is a question that is surprisingly tricky to answer. You may have heard that business owners all over the world are making a fortune by offering free promo products to their customers; But how is this possible? Isn’t the very idea of giving something away for free a total non-starter when it comes to turning a profit? It seems odd to expect to eventually become a dominant player in your industry by extending the promise of free items to customers who should be paying for your goods. But there may be more to this idea that you may realize at first.
No modern business can survive without an adequate knowledge of branding trends. If you are looking for ways to increase your public reputation, you may be interested in promo giveaway items. There’s a reason why giving away free branded promos has become a popular and very common practice. It’s because giving away these handy items has led to a very significant increase in the branding strength of businesses that adopt this practice. If you’re interested in following suit, you can do so for a price that will equal far less than what you may expect to pay at first glance.
The contemporary world is dynamic and ever-changing. In order to fit in, your business must be flexible enough to accommodate the technological revolution evidenced on an everyday occasion. Presently, if you are not taking advantage of e-commerce you might as well be living in the stone-age. Of all marketing tools, e-commerce has been marked as an essential tool that enhances growth and popularity of companies. It has offered modern-day enterprises increased opportunities for success and sustainability.
If you are the owner of a new small business, there’s a steep learning curve ahead. What you say and do on your associated social media accounts matters a great deal. In fact, it matters even more to you as a business owner than it would as a private citizen.
This is because your presence on social media is really the only point of contact that most people will ever have with your business. As a result, your every utterance on Facebook or Twitter will receive extra attention. This is because it will carry the extra weight of being an official pronouncement from your business directly to the public.
It shouldn’t come as any great surprise that social media is one of the main uses for the internet for both personal and professional means. What is surprising is that many businesses only use one form of social media as a means of connecting with their customers. Whether this is because it’s more comfortable or easier to manage, we highly encourage you to expand your online presence by creating accounts for your business on the sites you aren’t currently using.
In today’s blog we’re going to give you some reasons why sticking to just one social media site could potentially be hindering you. Whatever reason you may have for sticking to just one site, we think you may re-evaluate your stance on the matter after reading through why we think this is a bad idea.
So after a lot of searching myself it turned out to be that this is a fairly common problem that is around, but no real solution is available, so here I am writing on how to change your Facebook business page URL more than once! Unfortunately there is no easy way around this, its a long process and you should be aware that you will still lose any interaction and comments from other users.
HELP! I Accidentally Renamed a Facebook Page to the Wrong Username
To give you some context, I had two facebook pages, and I was meant to rename one to a certain URL, however I ended up making the mistake of renaming the wrong one, and turns out… that was my only chance. A simple human error caused a wave of issues to come crashing down on me like a tsunami and it was a bit of a catastrophe to start.
I tried submitting the issue left right and centre to different kinds of Facebook support requests, heck we even messaged Mark Zuckerberg himself! Naturally, he didn’t reply but I was reaching my wits end.
Do you remember your business’s first foray into Facebook marketing? If you’re like most small businesses, you probably started out by setting up a Page for your brand and then posting content from that Page in an effort to get more people to discover and ‘Like’ you. All this was, conveniently, free.
Recently, however, Facebook has made it harder for businesses to find an audience without paying. The social media giant has rolled out several algorithm changes to their News Feed in an effort to ensure users see high-quality content that’s most relevant to them, which means users are more likely to organically see posts from their friends who are watching the same sporting event or TV series premiere than they are to see, for example, a non-promoted post from Bob’s Local Umbrella Shop (not that there’s anything wrong with umbrellas).
This boils down to less organic reach for businesses—in fact, Entrepreneur reported back in April that large businesses were organically reaching only 2% of their target audience as opposed to 16% just two years ago.
While some creative marketing might help your business find a slightly larger organic audience, it may also be worth the investment to pay for promotion. To help you decide, we’ve compiled some of the pros and cons of using Facebook Ads.
If you’ve spent some time scrolling through your personal Twitter or Facebook feed, you’ve probably noticed certain businesses promoting sweepstakes contests. These posts will typically say things like “Enter for a chance to win” and will then offer up a prize in exchange for the contest entrant performing a specific task, such as ‘Liking’ the business’s Facebook page, submitting their email address, or subscribing to the business’s newsletter.
You’ve also probably wondered whether these social media sweepstakes are worth it for the businesses. The short answer is yes—as long as the business goes into the contest with clear goals in mind, targets the appropriate audience, and continues to promote the contest for its entire run in order to encourage entries. Here are a few of the benefits you can get from running your own social media contest.
Email and social media marketing are often pitted against each other, as if one clear winner deserves all your marketing dollars. But why can’t email and social media be friends? In fact, why not use social media to grow your email list?
As you probably already know, your email list can be one of the most effective ways of reaching potential customers. Email is still the most popular online activity, with 91% of web users checking their email at least once a day. Perhaps even more importantly, the average web user is often used to receiving emails from businesses, and 74% of consumers say they prefer receiving commercial communications over email.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy convincing people to sign up for your mailing list in the first place. That’s where social media can come in handy. There are several great ways that you can use platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to drive web users to your email sign-up.
