Over the past couple of years, more and more businesses have moved key technology systems online. What does this new environment, known as "the Cloud," mean for your company, your customers and your competitors?
Advertising (like everything else, it seems) has gone virtual. Marketing dollars that used to go into newspaper ads and the yellow-pages are now much better spent "getting found" online.
How do you make sure that prospects in Kansas City actually see your Website, and then become customers? Two elements are essential to implementing a successful online marketing strategy.
If you operate a local business, then you are interested in reaching out to local prospects and customers. Your email newsletter can help you do this in ways your readers will find engaging and interesting.
Just focusing on your business all the time can get boring for both you and your recipients. Boring isn't good for anyone! Instead, take the time to focus on others—such as your customers and their businesses! This will not only give you a chance to “mix it up” and keep things fresh, it will also allow you to provide your readers with valuable information about other products and services available in the Kansas City area.
Another great source of valuable content for your email newsletter is to share the expertise of your customers with the rest of your subscribers.
Everyone with whom you do business is an expert in something. Very likely, they are an expert on a topic that will interest your other customers. After all, your clients already have one thing in common--they all do business with you.
An excellent way to engage the recipients of your email newsletter is to become a local expert on a topic which your readers find interesting.
There may be no shortage of people in the world who know about your industry--but there may be a shortage of such people in Kansas City. At the very least, there may be a shortage of such people who are willing to take the time to write down their expertise and share it with others for free.
