It's a fact. Businesses need to be online. So whether you need to catchup up and get online, or you're online but aren't having much success, here are 3 reasons you need to be online and how to do it successfully:
1. You have to meet your customers where they are.
If you want to get your customer into your door, or onto your website, you have to start by meeting them where they are, and that's online. Successful digital marketing is the process of meeting your customers right where they are in the digital space, and then leading them (through a process) to your product or service to turn them into a customer. Then, based on quality services, product, and great customer service through engagement, you turn them into a promoter. In case you haven't noticed, people take to the internet to become vocal about their thoughts and opinions. You can leverage that to turn your audience into a promoter of your business.
2. You want to be the leader in your industry, not the follower
If you haven't heard it yet, the truth is that if you aren't engaging with your target customer online, then your competitor is. Be the leader engaging with your target audience online, not the follower of your competitors. If you position yourself as an expert and industry leader online then that is how you will be viewed in the eyes of the customer. Don't let your competitor win the customer over simply because they are active online and you aren't.
3. You have a larger reach
Think about it. The internet reaches people all over the country and world. When you post something on social and know how to promote it well it can reach thousands and even millions of people. How many people do you want to reach?
