If you're one of the few small businesses in Victoria, or anywhere for that matter, that has not yet plugged into social media, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. I always tell small business owners that a social media presence is needed - only if you want to reach more customers and stay competitive. Here are just a few reasons why social media is so important for small businesses especially in a thriving city like Victoria:
1.) Your customers are already using it.
People across British Columbia spend over a quarter of their online time on social networks and blogs.
2.) It will give you a competitive advantage.
Even though you may not be using social media, your competitors most likely are. If that's the case, you'll want to add it to consider hiring a Social Media Manager like myself or risk falling behind your competitors.
3.) It will help you connect with your clients and prospects.
Most marketing channels are one-way in nature - a business sends out its marketing message, and the consumer receives it. With social media, you can actually have a conversation. Social media helps to create a community of fans and followers that see you as more than just a business entity. They'll view you as someone they trust, and people buy from those they trust.
So why am I telling you all this? I've been involved in Social Media for over 8 years and I continue to run social accounts for businesses companies/businesses and even niche topic accounts. I've managed accounts with over 1 million followers in some cases. Whether it's Twitter, Instagram, Google, or Facebook, I can handle/manage social posts for whatever your business may be.
If you're interested in having a valuable marketing tool for your business, please don't hesitate to reach out. My pricing will depend on how many social posts you would like per week and how many Social Media channels want to run. Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
