It’s been an eventful year so far! So much has happened and so much has changed. Having worked for the same digital company for 5 years I have finally gathered the courage to strike out on my own and see where this new path leads. As the famous Dr Seuss books says,
“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose!
With many years experience in marketing and design, I have much to offer small business, start-ups and larger concerns who would like to venture out into the online social world. Relationship building and excellent customer service has always been the key to attracting new business and retaining regular customers. The online world is no different. It’s not enough to simply set-up a social media account and hope customers will find you. As a business owner you need to ensure that you regularly engage with your audience, building a relationship that will steadily grow your loyal customer base. And if you think you can skip it all together because your business really doesn’t need to be online – then think again!
South African online users have surpassed 29 million, more than 52% of our population! Online spend in SA is forecast to grow to over R53bn by the end of 2018. More and more users are accessing a range of digital devices (61% mobile) to gather the information they need about the brands and services they will eventually choose. In today’s economy and landscape no business or service provider can afford NOT to have a social media presence if they wish to successfully grow and turn a healthy profit.
If you find the idea of setting up and maintaining your social media presence online confusing or daunting, not to worry, now you have help. Contact me to find out how I can help you get started on the road to social engagement and profitability . Should you need a logo, business card or online ad design, I can also provide these.
