  • Consider all of these things. Put yourself if their shoes. Do a poll – get them to answer each of these.
  • Once you know who your target market is you need to consider your USP that is, why they would want to buy from you and not the next person. What need or want are you trying to satisfy. Think back to the target market and the behavioural and psycho considerations. This is particularly important if you are operating in a competitive market. Hands up if you think you are in a competitive market? Please don’t say customer service. It’s not enough. Everyone thinks they offer a great customer service but have you check it out versus the competitors lately?

  • Now make sure you fill out everything. The more information you include the better it is for your business. This includes adding as many photos as you’re allowed and adding yourself to as many relevant categories as possible (up to 5). Also make sure the address you use for your Google Local listing is the same address you have listed on your website. Note (added April 21, 2010): Google Local Business Center has changed its name to  Google Places .
  • Google Places allows business owners to further refine how customers locate and use their services. If you travel to serve customers, you can now show which geographic areas you serve. And if you run a business without a storefront or office location, you can now make your address private. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eF6Myrky_Pc&feature=channel Google has finally added options for business owners to set their service areas,   as reported a couple weeks ago by Matt McGee .   Today it officially rolls out, again , along with a   re-branding of the Local Business Center , now simply called Google Places. The service area is great for those businesses that work from a home address they would rather not display, or businesses that serve multiple areas from one physical location, which is very common in larger metro areas (think plumbers, landscapers, remodeling contractors, interior decorators, etc..). Up till now many of those businesses targeting multiple cities had to resort to obtaining unique addresses and phone numbers in those other cities, often through UPS box addresses, a practice Google now frowns upon. The question is , how are rankings influenced by these new service area settings? Will a business located in “ City A ” , yet services the adjacent “ City B ” to the north, be able to rank for City B search queries when all its citation sources mention City A? It ’ s too early to tell and for some of my clients that this is well suited too I ’ m a   little hesitant   incredibly hesitant to make any changes as they already rank well. Perhaps the next fresh client becomes the guinea pig.

  • In case you hadn’t noticed, there is a fair bit happening online these days.
  • Hands up if you have seen this do the rounds. I had to include it in today’s presentation. It’s a classic. It is very easy to vent on social media but the consequences can be massive. If you were this girl’s employer you’d be glad you were aware of her posts right?
  • This lovely lady may be looking smug on her stool right now, but she was toppled last year when she tweeted the logies and got fired as a columnist for The Age with these lovely comments about much loved Aussie icons. Her retort? “ “ the Aussie public didn’t agree. Goneskis.
  • However you can take it too far. For some it becomes a guilty obsession. They can’t help themselves… to the point of no return…quite simply, it is an addiction.

    View slide
  • Now let’s chart your flight path…
    • Build their ‘brand’/ ‘profile’
    • Market more
    • Work on the business, not in the business
    • Get more leads/inquiries
    • Get more sales
    • And ideally….
    • Have more time!
    • Earn more money!
    • Take a holiday!
    What most business owners I meet are trying to do… Does this sound like YOU?
    • Building their online presence/profile
    • Use cloud computing and other technology that saves time and money
    • Have clear business objectives, a business plan
    • Ensuring they have a GOOD website with strong calls to action
    • Creating a bullet proof conversion system
    • Systemising/procedurising EVERYTHING they do
    • Tracking and measuring EVERYTHING they do
    • Delegating more – leverage their time
    • Retaining & reactivating their customers
    • Keeping in touch with a database regularly with quality content
    • Conduct research to understand buying motives and barriers to sale
    • Only doing marketing that gives a GREAT return on investment
    • Create and take publicity opportunities for the good of their business
    What business owners should be doing if they want to succeed…
  • But first let’s shift some mindsets! STOP START Always doing what you’ve always done (because you’ll always get what you’ve always go, or worse – times are changing!) Thinking outside the square of the most innovative marketing strategies you could possibly engage in Burying your head in the stand and making excuses about being busy/non techie/limited by budget Being open minded about the possibilities and how they could benefit your business some of which are very easy to do and low cost or no cost! Throwing stuff out there with no proper measurement devices in place Tracking and measuring EVERYTHING you do Measuring the cost of advertising and marketing activities Measuring the impact of marketing activities Doing things offline… ..if they can often be done faster and cheaper online Looking for new business If you haven’t maximised what you’re already sitting on and what they are worth to you Hoping for the best and having a ‘bit of an idea’ of what you want to achieve at the end of the day Getting crystal clear about your objectives, setting SMART goals and targets
  • So what are your SMART goals and business objectives?
  • UN-SMART GOAL....
  • SMART GOAL....
    • You have to do this. The difference between a dream and a goal is written words. If you are not writing down your goals, they will remain dreams.
    Don’t just think about goals – write them down and tell those close to you why these goals are so important to you.
    • Goals – are long-term aims that you want to accomplish.
    • Objectives – are concrete attainments that can be achieved by following a certain number of steps.
    • Goals – has the word “go” in it. Your goals should go forward in a specific direction. Goals will often go into undiscovered territory and you therefore can’t even always know where the end will be.
    • Objectives – has the word “object” in it. Objects are concrete. They are something that you can hold in your hand. Because of this, your objectives can be clearly outlined with timelines, budgets, and personnel needs. Every area of each objective should be firm.
    The difference between goals and objectives...
    • EXAMPLE:
    • To attract new parents for free music classes
    • To recruit new educators throughout Australia & New Zealand, particularly in locations where there are currently none
    • To sell products online
    When it comes to business objectives – keep it simple – no more than 3 – 5 core objectives.
  • Defining your target market
      • Geography - what is their location, where are they???
      • Socio-economic – who are they? What is their gender, age, income, occupation, education, sexual orientation, household size, and stage in the family life cycle.
      • Psychographic – how do they think? What are their attitudes, values, and lifestyles.
      • Behavioural – what are their behaviours?  Do they celebrate occasions, who is their degree of loyalty, how much are they online, do they read magazines?
      • Product-related – what is their association with a product i.e. Beer and sport!
  • Once we are clear on what we intend to do, we can look at the market we intend to fly in. Consider - geography...
  •  
  •  
  • USP – Unique sales proposition What’s the one thing that makes your business unique and distinct? Why should people buy from you and not your competitors? Do you promise great value, benefits, or service?
  • And make sure you have a good Super Hero ‘Headquarters’
  • By getting a website RIGHT! How?
    • Visually appealing
    • Fulfills the ‘8 second rule’
    • Data capture prominent and enticing for users to leave details i.e. incentive
    • Any desired call to action prominently featured
    • Social media links prominently featured
    • Contact number prominently featured
    • Opportunities for clients to ‘interact’ where-ever possible – comments, fill in form, check availability, view photos, videos, audios etc.
    • Easy to find the information they want with multiple navigation points plus main service offerings clearly identifiable
    • Loads fast
    • Scannable copy with lots of internal links
    • Search engine optimised
    • Regularly updated so encourages repeat visits – events and news articles + streaming social media good here
    Does your website tick all these boxes? If not, work on it NOW!
  • Once you know your flight path you are ready to get ‘kitted out’…
  • STEP 1 – Set up tracking devices
    • Google Analytics
    • Facebook Insights & Analytics

    • Email
    • Phone – main and alternative is ideal
    • Post code
    • Preferred method of contact i.e. phone or email

SOCIAL MEDIA HEROS
  • Become a Social Media Super Hero PHASE 3: Take the ‘fear factor’ out of flying…get surveillance
  • There’s a lot going on in social media right now…
  • With all these mediums, conversations are potentially going to happen online about you / your service / your product / your business / your competitors / your industry these days, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT
  • So you can choose to participate.... or bury your head in the sand and pretend it’s not happening....
  • Or you can participate. Remember the ‘party analogy’
    • Monitor conversations first - LISTEN
    • Introduce yourself and start conversations, ask questions - ENGAGE
    • Answer questions, give advice, if appropriate (i.e. if you can be helpful) – CONTRIBUTE
    • Share the advice if you believe in it (and encourage others to share yours)
  • If you don’t like what they say…
  •  
  • Are you prepared to let go of your brand, at least just a little…
    • It may seem scary at first but it could be the best thing you’ve ever done.
    • Feedback is good (and consumers will talk regardless)
    • We don't live in a perfect world and no one expects your business to be perfect (okay some do!)
    • In fact, if you had nothing but 5-star reviews across the board it might strike consumers as a bit suspect, is anybody REALLY that perfect?  
    • Also, negative reviews offer a golden opportunity , to go above and beyond.
    • See: http://consumerist.com/customer-service/above-and-beyond/
  • So GO to the party…but go prepared!!! Your options:
    • Get tracking in place – Google Alerts & more
    • Choose when to do something about it, and when to ‘LET IT GO!’
    • ‘ Kill them with kindness’
    • Be attentive - ask them how you can fix it... show you care!
    • Personally see it through to the end
    • Saturate the market with ‘good stuff’
  • To do this you don’t need this…
    • http://www.tweetbeep.com Track what people say on Twitter.
    • http://search.twitter.com/ Like Google’s search engine but just for Twitter!
    • http://www.google.com/alerts Good comprehensive option to pick up mentions on Google.
    • http://www.samepoint.com Tracks all social media, so should be able to find mentions of your business on Facebook and Twitter as well as on blogs.
    • http://www.technorati.com If you expect most of your customers to be talking about you on blogs, you need a
    • Technorati  account. You can do one-off searches of the blogosphere for your business, but you can also automate your searches by using a Watchlist (look under the Favourites tab)
    • http://www.socialmention.com Like Google Alerts but for social media.
    You need tools like this...
  •  
  • But what if it’s your staff who are talking?
  • Catherine Deveny's (The Age) Logie night tweets… "I do so hope Bindi Irwin gets laid". “ Rove and Tasma look so cute . . . hope she doesn't die, too.”
