The Best Marketing Strategies for Your Startup


The Best Marketing Strategies for Your Startup

With the opportunity to build a successful business, launching a startup is a dream for many an aspiring entrepreneur. However, no matter the industry, or how innovative the business model, all startups require a thorough and well-designed marketing strategy to build brand awareness and acquire customers. As such, creating your startup’s marketing strategy should take precedence.

However, with the majority of startups operating on a limited budget, developing a marketing strategy can seem like a daunting prospect. To help, here are some of the best approaches to consider.

Connect on Social Media

Statistics show that in 2018, there are more than 2.5 billion people using social media across the globe. As such, utilising social media as a form of marketing can be a high effective technique. Furthermore, free to access, it also appeals to the cost saving nature of startups.

However, mastering social media does take time. From establishing an online presence across different channels, to reaching out and forming connections, it requires commitment. As such, be prepared to put in the work to see results.

Reach Out Via Email

Another low-cost strategy, email marketing can be a successful method. To utilise this technique, you first need to encourage customers to sign up. There are many ways to do this, from adding a newsletter sign up form to your website, to offering an incentive for subscribers.

To increase effectiveness when sending out emails, include more than just adverts for your services or products. Also add content that will be useful or interesting to the reader, such as videos and articles.

Offer Valuable Content

If done well, blogging can be one of the most powerful tools that a startup can wield. This is because a blog can not only generate organic traffic but help to position your business as a knowledgeable source of expertise.

When starting a blog, make sure to also consider search engine optimisation (SEO). By doing this, as well as using relevant keywords and consistently posting valuable and high-quality content, it could prove to be an effective strategy.

Include Traditional Techniques

In addition to these three digital strategies, also consider including traditional marketing techniques. This could include anything from making phone calls and attending events, to business brochures and using Leaflet Drop to distribute flyers.

Proven to be effective, these can help reach a wider customer base (particularly those who are not online) and help to form long-lasting connections and communities.
