Turning Small Business into Big Business with eManagerSite

March 1st, 2017 by TCC Leave a reply »

If you’re like most small business owners, you’re constantly fighting 3 battles:

You’ve got too much competition.

There are a limited number of customers out there, and you will need to find them and get them to your website.

You have a budget that is not unlimited.

Basically, this means you have to come up with ways to make your business stand out — all without spending a small fortune. Let the Computer Company review how this can be accomplished.

All you have to do is succeed at content marketing.  Content marketing has become a buzz term lately. However, it’s not some passing fad. Instead, it’s a proven way to turn your small business into a big business. In fact, if you do it correctly, your small business will be right up there with the big boys.

How can you do it?

Whether you have one employee or 1,000 employees, all businesses share one very important responsibility — to make life easier for their customers. Whether you sell websites, sell car parts or dry clean clothes, potential customers want to know how working with you benefits them. By publishing content that showcases your expertise, you can do just that.

Let’s say you run a small business that fixes computers. If you started up a blog that explained ways to prevent spyware from infiltrating people’s hard drives, wrote about the pros and cons of the newest processor to hit the market and gave out tips that could help make computers last longer, anyone who read your blog would see that you really know what you’re talking about. Thus, they’d be a whole lot more likely to call you when their own computer needs a repair.

Some ways to become an expert in a subject would be if you own a small interior design firm, talk to the local hardware store about writing a guest post for their website. If you write about the latest home renovation trend, that’s something that the hardware store’s customers will be interested in and if they want some expert help to tackle any of those projects, they’ll know you can be of service.

Publish truly great content both on your own site and off, and you’ll have more people seeing your name. You’ll have more people linking to your website. You’ll have more people talking about you on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll rank higher in the search results. You’ll make your mark on the Web.

But what about the expense?

Ah yes, the third challenge we talked about. You may be inclined to think that content marketing can only generate big business results if you have big business money to spend. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, content marketing is the ideal choice for small businesses, because you can succeed with virtually any-sized budget. And, the money you spend will provide long-term benefits. Let’s say you publish a great article that offers a detailed analysis of one of the developments in your industry. That article will be on the Web forever meaning that people will be able to read it six hours from now, six months from now and six years from now. It’s common for content marketers to still get traffic from pieces they published months or even years prior. Consider it the gift that keeps on giving.

Even if you pay a professional content writer like the Computer Company  to review or create the article for you, if it’s good enough, it should be able to pay for itself over time. After all, if the article fetches enough extra traffic — and your sales copy is good enough to turn those additional visitors into buyers — the money you spent on it was well worth it. Happy ending for everyone. :)

That’s the exact opposite of paid advertising. If you’ve been spending a chunk of your budget on banner ads, you’re only going to see results for as long as you keep paying the bills. Once you stop forking over your money, those ads are going to disappear. You’ll never be able to benefit from them again, unless of course, you start paying for them again.

When you think about it in terms of dollars and cents — the true benchmark for any business — you just can’t beat content marketing. It’s the perfect way to give small businesses a bigger reach and a bigger slice of the pie.
