Are you looking for new and better ways to advertise your business? Maybe you’ve tried the traditional billboards and ads and they didn’t really work out.
How is your social media game? Are you advertising there too? And if so, exactly HOW are you? Are you taking advantage of the free (and paid) advertising available on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest?
Let’s talk a little bit about using social media for advertising your products and/or services.
When trying to get your business out there (and I know it can sometimes be hard), advertising is not an easy thing to do. However, if you have a social media account it can be just a little bit easier.
Okay, so I know you’re now probably wondering, “how can Instagram or Facebook help with my advertising?”.
Well, probably one of best answers I can give you is that IT IS FREE (yes, you can run paid ads, but that’s not what I’m talking about here)! What I’m talking about is the stuff where you post about your company on your social site and it’s no more work or cost than hitting that “Publish” button. If you post and don’t get sales, then it is okay. It’s not like you just spent tons of money on it and then didn’t have any results from it. But if you do get results from it then that would be a nice bonus that comes without a cost.
Using social media for advertising makes it so you can interact with other accounts that are like yours and by doing that people beginning to see what your business has to offer and they want to learn more about what you do. It’s great for networking, reaching potential leads, talking about sales, and just gaining overall visibility online. You’ve spread your reach and promoted your company without paying a dime.
So if you don’t already use social media for advertising, then you should get out there right now and create the account that is going to help your business!
