New Year, New…You?
A New Year is always a good time to freshen up your website or shake up the way you market your business. January is always a slow month, we know. Businesses everywhere are still finding their feet after a 2 week break. We can generate a report to see what can be improved on your website initially to increase traffic then we will look at marketing. Optimise the website is the first and most important task. After all, we don’t want to be ‘flogging a dead horse’.
Here are a few basic tips to keep your business in the public eye over the Christmas period:
Tweet and update your Facebook status – even if it is just to wish your followers and likes a Happy Christmas. Take a few minutes out of your day, put your feet up, make a cup of tea, get out your phone or laptop and interact. Don’t just drop off the radar for 2 weeks. If need be schedule a few tweets on something like Buffer.
Blog about anything interesting you do over the holidays – readers will be interested to see what you are up to for a change instead of reading about what your business is doing.
Do a backup – obvious, but easily forgotten. The worst thing that could happen is lose everything over the holidays in a freak accident / theft etc. Even if it’s as simple as putting important documents onto a flash drive and keeping it somewhere other than where all the business IT is kept.
Send out an E-card and newsletter – people love receiving Christmas wishes, plus it shows you care. Equally as important it keeps your brand awareness topped up. Send out a newsletter about what has happened throughout the year and hopes for the next are always an engaging read.
Hold a competition in the run up to Christmas – everyone is after that extra gift for Christmas, whether it’s a self indulgent treat or a gift for someone else. What’s better than winning a competition with a hot prize on offer?! People will love you for it, plus you can market to entrants in the New Year.
