Business Philosophy

After compiling the information from the three key fundamentals we can establish a strategy to achieve your business objectives—increase online exposure and social media engagement. To accomplish these objectives entails the development and execution of multiple components.

Associates in Business is a Marketing and Social Media Solutions company that focuses on the clients needs—ensuring that the products and services being offered are in sync with the end user. This is the foundation of successful marketing that has made many businesses incredibly successful.

• Brand identity: Given the competitive market place, the visitors must feel that they are going to the official site, social media pages and platforms for the business. One way to convey this is to develop a design strategy that continues the brand’s look and feel throughout all online platforms.

The team at Associates in Business have worked on domestic and international companies that offer a variety of services and products. It is the goal of Associates in Business to implement a marketing communication strategy that will increase the Balmoral Island’s online presence through the design and development of engaging website, social media platforms and online marketing platforms. Our approach is founded on three key fundamentals: (1) The products: It is vital to thoroughly understand what you are selling or promoting. How will your business stand out? Why should consumers choose your business as the “Ideal Destination”? What do people think about your business? This information will translate into communicating features into benefits. (2) The consumer: Understanding the target audience and what relationships they have with your business is important. How does your business and amenities fit into their lives. Taking that approach creates an environment where your business addresses the consumer’s needs. More importantly understanding your consumer(s) will enable your marketing communications to “speak” their language. (3) The marketplace: Having key insights into the Hospitality Industry, perception of the competition and how your audience fits within this arena is important in creating successful marketing communications. Who are your direct and indirect competitors and their specific strengths and weaknesses?

• Marketing Communication Consistency: The proposal is specifically for Web Design, Social Media Solutions and other platforms that promote one another with the effort of increasing traffic to and from the website whose purpose is to convert “visitors” into “clients.” Updating all online platforms to match the website will ensure what consumers encounter when they see, or read about, Balmoral Island is consistent across all channels. • Brand Personality: Developing social media solutions entails giving them a “personality” that achieves a positive perception in the eyes of consumers. The website, social media channels and other platforms will reflect Balmoral Island as an premier destination in the market. That can be accomplished by providing visitors with an engaging design and useful applications on the site as well as the other platforms. These features will encourage fans to respond to posts on the social media channels and initiate “conversations”. These conversations are shared and will create good impression and build brand loyalty.

Social Media Platform Design The saying “Less is more” always holds true. In the business of marketing communication the message should always be simple and clear. Creating a Facebook fan page that is visually appealing and highly functional to users is a challenge. It requires understanding of marketing, design and computer-human interaction. This is accomplished by the following steps: • Establishing a clear visual hierarchy— Doing so will save the consumer time since the design of the pages has prioritized the content for the user (i.e. fan page tabs).

Sunset Resorts Facebook fan page example: Multi-functional fan page with consistent branding from Sunset Resorts website.

• Strategic design combines the use of copy with imagery to effectively communicate specific messaging and branding elements from the website. The choices presented to the consumer/ visitor would be intuitive with a sense of clear direction giving the consumer a positive user experience. A dedicated company fan page also achieves brand awareness when website design elements are brought into Facebook fan page. • Focus is achieved by making useful content more prominent and eliminating unnecessary text and graphics.
