Smart Crow’s Advertising Approach

1. Learn (and live) online marketing jargon. Having a strong online presence is critical to success, but you can’t really expect to succeed if you jump in headfirst without first doing some background research. Case in point: outbound marketing approaches (websites and blogs) cost a fraction of inbound marketing expenditures while still producing a far greater marketing ROI (return on investment). If you didn’t understand that, get to researching. If you did, then congratulations; you’re already ahead of the curve.

2. Find a niche. If you’ve been running your construction business for awhile, you’ve probably realized that your competition has been online for years, but don’t worry. Today’s business owners don’t have to worry about whether they’re first, second or even last to the Internet scene. Instead, they focus their efforts on one specific aspect of the business. They use their knowledge of the market to decide when to enter the market with the right product at the right time. So find your strongest niche service — something that you know your company can promote as being the best, fastest, cheapest, etc. — and then run with it.

3. Connect your business to social media. Facebook breaks down its 500 million user base by demographics including age, sex, marital status, activities, interests and geographical location. If your business isn’t on Facebook and other social media platforms, then you’re missing out on an essential — and relatively inexpensive — online marketing tool that can expose a plethora of potential clients to your business.

We live in an ever-changing world where today’s best intentions are tomorrow’s forgotten promises. Establish a plan for online marketing growth and put that plan in motion. Stay committed to your cause and expand how far you can reach into your market.
