Have you been getting that entrepreneurial urge to start a business? Maybe you got laid off from your job because of COVID. Maybe you got bumped to part-time. Maybe you are starting a side business to keep you occupied. No matter what you’re reasoning, BM Innovations is here to help you build a successful, thriving online business.
There are thousands of people out there starting their online businesses right now, but with so much information out there, what area of the business does one focus on first? We believe focus should be placed in the following areas to make the most of your time, and truly get your business profitable in the shortest amount of time.
You need a website. In this day and age, if your business doesn’t have a website, you don’t exist. This is especially true as we are all doing so much more shopping online now than ever before. A website should represent your brand message but in a perfect world, it should convert. 48% of people cited that a website’s design is the number one factor in determining the credibility of a business. Have no idea how to get started? We have you covered with our web design and web development services.
Market your business. People don’t know about your business if they don’t hear about it! Traditional marketing (print, radio, tv, direct mail, etc.) and Digital Marketing (SEO, SMS, pay-per-click, etc) both play a vital role in getting your business noticed faster.
Build your reputation. Having a good reputation makes people trust you and builds loyalty. Good customer service and providing quality services and products are a sure way to build your reputation. A good reputation also leads to free marketing in the form of referrals. Referrals or word-of-mouth advertising is by far one of the most effective and low-cost ways to market your business online or offline.
By focusing and maintaining your website, your reputation, and your marketing, you will be setting up a solid foundation for your business. These areas of your business are the most important and will generate a high return on investment.
If you are new to online business and marketing, we would love to discuss how we can help you create a strategic plan for your business success.
