1. Gather Information About Your Target Audience
Anytime you launch a new brand or company, you need to understand exactly what audience you can reach.
Like, for example, if you’re starting a tech company, your target audience could be your peers, meaning people who love and work in technology services.
If you specifically work with medical technology, your target audience would be in the medical field etc.
Tip: Research shows that the best way to identify your target audience is to conduct market research, specifically by looking at your current customer base and charting purchase paths.
2. Get Familiar With Social Media
Social media is the core component of digital marketing. You don’t need to be personally active on social media to make your business active. You just need to understand how each platform works and what you can do to make your company more present.
The next of Sheila’s 5 Digital Marketing Tips for Senior Entrepreneurs is to learn how social media for business works.
Below are just a few ideas how you can make this work for you.
First, develop a cohesive visual brand. This means choosing branding colors and fonts and creating a logo. Then you can use those across all profiles on social media.
For example, create a banner using your brand standards and post it on your Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter pages.
Make sure you are active daily on all sites, and if you prefer not to handle this part yourself, hire a social media expert to take care of it for you.
3. Collaborate With Other Businesses
Cross-promotion with other businesses is a great way to reach a broader audience. It starts with finding businesses within the same industry that are not competitors. For example, if you create laptop covers, you might partner with a company that sells backpacks to create a back-to-school advertisement.
Look for companies with access to more demographics and get your company name out there. You’ll save on advertising costs while driving more engagement to your page. Just be sure to vet the companies you work with first. You want to make sure they have a solid brand reputation.
Incidentally, you might also consider improving your knowledge of and standing in the business community by going back to school. A master’s degree in business administration could prove invaluable, and if you choose to take advantage of the flexibility of online programs, you can learn at your own pace and implement your lessons in real-time, without having to step away from your business.
4. Keep Your Website Updated
Websites are extremely important in digital marketing, especially if you are running a company that operates entirely in e-commerce. It is important to keep it updated and running efficiently at all times. Consumers expect fast transaction times, including when they come to your site looking for information.
Download an automated chatbot to give them quick answers rather than making them wait for an email response. If you have questions about building an effective website, work with a web developer to get started.
5. Answer Questions With Your Content
Digital marketing content should speak directly to your target audience. You draft responsive content by reviewing what your customers say about you online. You can take that information and turn it into advertising.
For example, if a customer complains about the effectiveness of one of your products, review and improve that product before advertising it as new and improved.
Remember that marketing strategies and trends evolve rapidly. What worked yesterday may not even work today.
If you commit to consistently continuing your digital marketing education, you can stay ahead of the competition in your industry.
A Few Final Words
In hindsight, these are just a few Digital Marketing Tips for Senior Entrepreneurs to consider. Starting a blog/website, a youtube channel, an email list etc. are all great ideas for anybody that want to start making money online. For anyone capable of using a laptop, their phone or PC digital marketing can be a very lucrative activity.
