Tips and Tricks For Bringing In Business

Your business is going good, you are generating a lot of new leads, sales are up, and overall you are happy with how it’s working out. But sometimes we have to face the fact that business isn’t going to be booming forever. Every business hits a plateau, and you may even have weeks, months, and maybe even years when your business goes downhill.

Here are some ways to bring more business in if you start to find things lagging, or foresee that in the future they might start to.

One: The most important thing to remember when thinking of ways to bring more business in, is to make sure you are interacting with your current customers and potential customers. If you aren’t already doing this then start doing it right now.

Two: If you don’t have social media accounts for your business, then you need to get some, that just goes without saying. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, get them all and starting posting, liking, and commenting. Social media is going to be your best friend in the advertising department (here’s my post on the benefits of social media if you would like to read it )

Three: Advertise well. It’s important that you are advertising in more ways than one. Use Google ads, Facebook ads, and social media to advertise. Anything that you can use to advertise your business, do it, whether it is big or small. You are never going to bring in business if you don’t advertise on a daily basis.

Four: Almost no one can pass up a good deal! So do a 10% off sale or a 30% flash sale and talk about it everywhere. This can help you bring in some more business and possibly make it so people will come back to you when they want to buy that same product or service again, instead of going to someone else.

These are good things to keep in mind whether you need more business or want to bring in more. All four of these things are something that every business should be doing even if they don’t feel that their business is slow or diminishing.

Instagram Stories

Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and so many more social media platforms can help your business out a lot. I could talk about every one of them telling you how much they can help out your business and why you need them, but for this post, I’m going to talk about how Instagram stories can help your business out.

Here are five reasons why you need Instagram stories for your business:

1. The live video is one of the best parts of Instagram stories because there are just so many ways to use it. You can do a Q. and A. or tell a story, you can do anything, even just getting on and doing a Day in the Life at the Office.

2. You can use the poll sticker in the stories to ask your followers what they would like to see more of or what they don’t like about something. Everyone loves to join in on a good vote!

3. Use the superzoom to share a funny moment at the office, like when someone falls asleep on the job or you catch someone doing a funny dance. It adds a little fun to any day and your followers will love seeing a little bit of “real” life.

4. Instagram added music to their stories now, so you can add music to any photo, video, or anything you want! It’s fun to use and you have 20+ songs to choose from. Music videos are some of the best videos out there.

5. As I have said before, people like to do business with people they know. Using Instagram stories is a great way to allow people to get to know you, and you get to build a relationship with them.

These five things can help make your Instagram be the best business account out there. If you don’t have an Instagram account then you should really give it a shot and see the difference that the Instagram stories can make in your business!

Three Tips On How To Use SEO

 

 

So I was thinking since we have talked about what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a few posts ago, that we could talk about ways to get results from SEO! This is the post for you if you are looking for ways to get your SEO ranking up there and want to learn a bit more of ways to use SEO for your business.

Here are few tips on how to improve your SEO rankings down below.

Keywords:  I’m going to talk about this one first because it’s an important one. Find on Google keywords that people search. Then take them and put them in your writing.  But remember that you don’t want to use them too much, so only put them in about four times for every post.

Other content than text: It’s good to have more than just text on your website or in your blog posts. So go ahead and add some videos and photos. This can help people to engage more and be more tempted to keep scrolling.

Social media: So let me start by saying that if you don’t have a social media account for your business then you need to go and make one right now. Anyway, social media is great for improving your SEO ranking when people share links to your website on it. 
 
SEO is great for your business and these are a few ways that you can use it. I hope that they were helpful to you in  learning a little bit of how to use SEO and make it work for your business

The Importance of Social Media for your Business

 

                  

 

Some people think that social media is a bad thing, and yes, it can be, if used incorrectly. But we think quite the contrary. We believe that social media can be hugely beneficial for your business. Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Snapchat, and  many more can benefit your business immensely. All of these can display your product, let people know about your business, and overall bring you customers. The social media team here at Flocksy use almost all of these and have found that they have helped us a lot with building our business.

It is important for your business for many reasons, but one of the (many) is that it can be used to communicate with your customers in ways that you don’t usually get the chance to. You can be more casual and laid back with potential customers, let them see that although you’re a business, you aren’t always formal and serious. They can be free to ask you questions in the comments that they might not always feel as comfortable asking on your site. It lets your customers see a whole new side to your business that they may not have even known existed.

Let’s take Instagram for instance. Instagram has added the recent feature of Instagram Stories. You can take a photo or video and your followers can see it for 24 hours. You could use this feature to your business’s advantage by doing a day in the life. You could take videos of your day, at the office, going out for coffee. All the things that your customers don’t get to see when they visit your site. But this is just one of the many great advantages there are to having social media for your business.

 It may take a while before you start seeing signs that these social media platforms are making a difference, but if used correctly, over time you will see the increase of customers.

If your business doesn’t have at least one social media platform we highly encourage you to start one. It’ll be worth the work when you see the increase in costumers.
