Interestingly enough, we keep coming across the same objections about the Internet, notably among medium-sized business owners. I’m not sure what’s driving the thought process … is it fear, is it lack of online education, is it lack of online experience, or just plain denial?
As your digital agency representative, I can’t stress enough the need for you, your company and your brand to get your online marketing program underway. Email blasts are easy and inexpensive to get started. Social Marketing channels can be setup fairly inexpensively, and your website’s organic ranking likely needs to be improved. Do you have a blog? If not why not?
In any event, I believe you appreciate my sentiments here, time is of the essence.
Sorry about the sarcasm, yet I hope you get my point. It’s time you embraced your online advertising programs. Your customers are online, online is effective, it’s measurable, it’s affordable and the fact remains, if you don’t get started you’ll be left behind.
These myths are exactly the reason to get started; ahead of your competition. Like the ostrich, small business needs to get its head out of the sand before it’s too late.
