The last twelve months has been a blur of turbulent events that none of us saw coming. As the majority of the population in the UK were encouraged to work from home, for some an opportunity to evolve their hobbies and passions into business enterprises presented itself.
However, for anyone launching a new business a lot of preparation and research is required, and with digital marketing trends continuing to change at a hare’s pace it can be often difficult to fathom where to begin.
Thankfully, the digital marketing experts at Myk Baxter Marketing are here to offer a helping hand to all digital business owners. By compiling together our top tips on how you can best utilise the powers of digital marketing will ensure that you stay well-positioned post-COVID, and they are also here to take your calls or inquiries for anything you may need.
Set your business goals and objectives
Prior to going live, it’s important to set a clear outline of your key goals, while ensuring that you keep them clear and simple. However, when compiling this list, we encourage you to push yourself and think big – after all, nothing is impossible!
During this process, it’s also beneficial to identify your business niche and to research your competitors to ensure that you stand out within your sector. Myk Baxter Marketing can help businesses identify the goals best suited to their online and digital objectives.
Identify your audience
By taking into consideration your audience’s demographic (including their age, gender, interest, and income) you will be able to adapt your content and marketing strategy to suit their needs, leading to more sales and more engagement.
Utilising applications like Google Analytics is a great way to identify your target audience, while social media platforms such as Facebook offer more in-depth and detailed information on your audiences (if you have a page already), allowing you to further identify exactly what makes your audience tick.
Utilise the powers of social media
As social media marketing continues to evolve, it’s important to identify which platforms will work best for you when promoting your business. For example, if you’re an owner of a fashion retailer, you may receive the best engagement by using Instagram and its features, including IGTV and Reels.
