There is a powerful saying, likely of Cantonese origin, that it’s always ‘good to start from the bottom’. Unless we are talking about applying this mantra while learning to swim- this logic could serve you good, allowing for a steady accumulation of experience and expertise. However, in a world zipping at the speed of light, is it prudent to take it slow and steady? The answer, as far as marketing your Company’s services, ideas and products to its prospective customers goes, is a very emphatic ‘NO’. The era of originality is passé, and unless you are selling ‘amiracle-in-a-bottle’, your company is actively competing with a string of similarly placed entities. The need to separate yourself from the pack could be the difference between a successful company, an also-ran or a commercial failure. True to its creative ways, the World of Marketing and Advertising periodically throws in a lot of ideas that can be cleverly manipulated to good use by a resourceful company. Nothing however has captured the public imagination with as much endearment as the ‘Website’…your Online representative, active 24×7 and a constant bridge between your prospective customers and your business. A successful website is a great resource- a non-successful one is often obscure, unimaginatively conceived, designed and deployed without a solid strategy or purpose. There are also many Startups or SMEs who indulge in the waiting game- preferring a mere presence on the Internet as an initial accomplishment before taking a more personal interest with the improvement of their own offline fortunes. BIG MISTAKE! Does it make any sense to utilise your greatest promotional asset as just another ‘check-out’ on your SME’s to-do list? Let your Website sing- fly with the carefree attitude of something that knows its place in the scheme of things. What you need is a strong Digital Marketing Strategy- and No, good strategies aren’t always costly. Rephrasing, what you need is a good Digital Marketing Company that treats your website as a solid foundation on which might raise the towers of your Marketing ambitions. Resonating content, blogs, forums, social media marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) etc are just fragments of a larger picture that can effectively draw positive responses from your target audience. The old ways of ‘Outbound marketing’ have been cold-shouldered by the general customer base and the new-fangled ideas of ‘Inbound marketing’ aren’t easily perceptible by a segment that’s eager to get its money’s worth. Thus, it pays to hire a professional Digital Marketing Company and treat your ‘little’ website as the harbinger of bigger things. Often, we wonder about the changing times and how ideas of a generation are rendered so redundant by emerging scenarios of its successor. The spectrum of Digital Marketing makes a mockery of traditional marketing by what it can achieve- a seduction machine that brings in willing patrons and keeps them interested for life. Dear Startup, SME, treat thy Website for what it is- a gold mine of unimaginable proportions.
