3 Ways You Can Market Your Business Using Social Media

 

Let’s be honest. Looking around today you can’t help but notice smart phones literally everywhere. And on those smart phones, social media: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter – You name it, most people have at least one. In fact, if you want some seriously scary ‘this is the world we’re living in’ data, how’s this strike you? There are approximately 7.5 billion people on Earth – of those, 4/7.5 billion (that’s 53%) are on the internet. Of those with internet, 3.2/4 billion = or 80% are ACTIVE social media users. Most of them using a mobile device. So yes, social media – maybe you hate it, but your business and your wallet want you to LOVE IT. And if you love yourself, you’ll learn to at least tolerate it as well.

Let’s jump right in with our tips for success:

  1. Build Awareness – As noted above, most people in the world have a cell phone nowadays. That means that no more are people printing off MapQuest to find your storefront. Instead, they’ll probably do it by clicking on a map they find on one of your responsive pages, guiding them and their money directly to you. Social Media allows for you to have fans and ratings and an incredibly BOOSTED VISIBILITY for little overhead in terms of both time and money.
  2. Communicate Authority – You likely don’t care if you customers are awed by your tech savviness, but I know you care if your tech illiteracy creates a barrier to them giving you money. SO, first step is to prove your expertise. A frequently updated site with relevant and NEW content will not only land you in the early stages of a Google search, but it will land you firmly in the minds of your target audience.
  3. Provide Engagement – One of the things I am consistently impressed with is any company that knows its bosses well… Because the boss is ALWAYS the customer. The best way to get to know anyone is to speak with them regularly. So double check – does your site allow for feedback? Does it have a ‘Chat Now’ option? And don’t always be a consumer of data from your consumers. Give them a little bit of yourself, too. Maybe one day, upload a video letting people see a sneak peak behind the office walls – experiencing your team lunch together with you. Or go Facebook Live sometime, answering questions in real time.Another aspect to engagement is providing support, answering questions, listening to criticism, and making customers feel heard. In many of the social mediums, there is an option to respond to direct messages from customers/clients immediately, even if it is to say ‘Thank you for contacting us. We’ve received your message and will get back to you as soon as we can’. People like to know that their thoughts weren’t lost in cyberspace!

One of the first steps for any business seeking to GROW is building awareness. Your company can’t grow if people don’t know you exist! Always, through remembering that your boss is your customer and always treating them like KINGS AND QUEENS – and that means listening to their thoughts, frustrations, questions and concerns – your business will continue to thrive. Enjoy the ride!

JARED GIOVINAZZO

As Creative Director, I am privileged to play an integral part in the success of the most elite commercial real estate brokerage firm in Southwest Florida, Trinity Commercial Group (TCG). I began working at TCG in 2014 and had every intention of becoming an agent and executing alongside a great team of talented brokers. After a few months of learning the real estate business, I recognized a need for a dedicated marketing department. The Managing Broker took a leap of faith to invest in my abilities and I slowly began to fall in love with the marketing and design aspect of the business. The company had only been open since 2011, so it started small with some flyer templates on PowerPoint and took some time to evolve. Now 6 years later with the help of my team, I have successfully built a Marketing Department and TCG is a top performing firm in the respective markets we serve.

With two locations open in Florida (Estero & Fort Lauderdale), I am dedicated to TCG’s company branding, marketing, and graphic design. I am passionate about making sure every document and image that has our logo on it has been crafted intentionally, and accurately tells the story of our brand. TCG’s vision is to change the way commercial real estate is experienced, and that is my goal with each design I create. My goal is to set ourselves apart with the level of creativity that goes into every flyer, proposal, offering memorandum, online listing, property map, property photo (on the ground or in the air with a drone!), promo item, listing document, and even email signature! Alongside of graphic design, I also manage and coordinate over 200 active listings on multiple platforms, maintain email blast campaigns, and oversee our social media outlets (FB, IG, LI) with the help of my team.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE
  • Graphic Design on Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom)
  • Property Photography and Drone Aerials
  • Listing Coordination

Honor Yoga

Welcome to Honor Yoga, where you can come as you are and leave feeling your very best. I sat down with Kelley Kiernan to learn a little bit about her background and her yoga studio which plans to open December 7th 2019 at Logan Landings in North Naples. (Immokalee and Logan Blvd)

Background and Reason for Opening Honor Yoga:

Kelley grew up in the St. Louis Area, and moved to Southwest Florida in 2012. She has been a successful dietician for over 20 years and has always urged her clients to do yoga to help support their body in many ways! Although she knew about yoga and its benefits, she had never had the opportunity to try it herself until one day a friendly neighbor was going and Kelley decided to join. It was there that she discovered how much she could get out of yoga and how it could greatly benefit her body and mind. She fell in love with it and knew that this would be a part of her life for years to come.

“When I decided to open my own Honor Yoga Studio in Naples, I knew that I wanted to create a place where people will always feel comfortable and safe. I want people to know that anyone can do it and this is a kind and family-friendly environment! There isn’t enough kindness in the world, and we want to create a place where you are always greeted with a warm welcome and can feel comfortable at any stage you are at.”
