Apples to Oranges: Why it’s Important to Hire a Marketing Professional
Your friend comes to you and says, “Hey, I recently visited a new local produce store, Apples. It’s great, check it out.” You go online, to either Google or Facebook and type in Apples produce store. Nothing. Facebook recommends a different produce store near you that is appropriately called Oranges. Intrigued, you click. Oranges has pictures of their inventory of fresh produce just brought in today, handpicked by the farm down the road. You were hoping to find more information about Apples, but you are hitting a dead end. Oranges, however, has great reviews, beautiful photos and is very responsive to comments and messages. Which one do you choose? We’re comparing Apples to Oranges here (pun intended). Do you think you’d seek out Apples now that you’ve found Oranges? We think not.
Brand awareness is everything. Having a marketing professional manage your social media channels puts you at the fingertips of people all over the globe. It’s not enough to rely on word-of-mouth or put an ad in your local newspaper these days. Business accounts on social media are the future of doing business. Having a digital marketing guru take your brand to the next level by increasing awareness, expanding your reach, and driving traffic to your website or store can result in exponentially increasing your business’s revenue.
