Ads and Ads
Before, ads were aired on TV to everyone alike. You and your family would see the same ad regardless of who it was intended for. Advertising in the current environment is not like that at all. Your ads can be tailored to your target audience, and most major ad services today let you customize who sees your ad. You can make decisions based on age, gender, location, preferences, and even previous searches! These ads work, so take advantage.
You don’t have to set up an account on every social media app at once. It doesn’t matter to your customers that you are at five places at once. They care whether or not you are available for them somewhere.
Keeping this in mind, it makes sense to start small and go for one social media platform in the beginning. Once you feel you have sufficient content in one place, you can start with another.
Interact and Engage
Once people land on your website or social media app, the job of the algorithm is done. Now, it’s your turn to retain and convert leads. Interact with your audience extensively, answer their questions, set up automated replies if you must—they should get the idea that you are dedicated to the customer’s wellbeing. In time, your interaction and engagement will prove to be very useful.
