There have been so many changes during the last year, and a lot of people became aware of the importance of being connected with their customers through digital channels and a good marketing strategy. This is why at Twelve12 we want to share with you some information promoting your online business with Internet Marketing in Orange County, or anywhere else globally.
The health crisis has affected almost everyone, especially smaller businesses and entrepreneurs, many of which were not ready to face a whole new business model that includes a mainly virtual world. Although it is not that different from the usual way of running a company, it has to be said that you do require some skills and knowledge to successfully become an online store. All those people who unfortunately lost their jobs, or whose billing hours were cut by more than half, had to start working on their own online business without a lot of success.
If this is the first time that you read our blogs, we have previously covered a lot of the basics about how to start your own online business. We would like to invite you to take a look and discover many more topics. For now, we want to give you a quick overview of the most important and basic aspects that you should know and understand by heart, and that are key aspects of any business.
You should really know your audience, market, product or service, and capabilities. Lying or exaggerating is not an option, particularly online. If your offer is not what you promised, your reputation as a poor seller or supplier will precede you.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to have the best product or the best prices. If those are not among your highest selling points, what you should do is to look for what is called “added value”, and through this, make yourself stand out from your competitors.
The good thing about working with added value is that it can be anything that your customers perceive as worth paying for. In this category, the usual is customer service, easy purchase process, fast delivery, unusual packaging, collectibles, rare editions, etc. Just about anything you can think of that would be enjoyed and valued by your target market. And the best news is that this whole additional effort will be part of your marketing success.
