If you feel like your business growth has slowed down or stalled, then you might want to take a second look at your current marketing strategy. In today’s fast-paced world, every business owner should be aware of all the marketing mediums that are currently available and which ones can help them take their business growth to the next level. We have compiled a list for you, so make sure to go through each point and reflect on how you can apply it to your business! 

Video content

The use of video marketing is easily one of the top ways to help bring flavor to your brand and make you stand out. This is because usually video content is much more engaging and entertaining than a single image or just simple writing. Just think about it. When was the last time you saw a long article and just decided that you are not going to go through all this because it is too tiring? 

Also keep in mind that the more quality video content you produce, the more you increase your chances of going viral. Once again, think of the last time an image or a piece of writing by a business has gone viral. You are probably not able to even think of an example right now. However, when we think of viral video ads that have been created by businesses, there are usually a number of ones that immediately come to mind. Therefore, whether it's Facebook, Instagram or your own site, the use of videos is imperative and will surely take your business to new heights.
Multiple platforms

There is no easy to way to put this. If you are relying on only one medium of social media to connect with your audience, then you are hinging the success of your business on someone else’s playfield. Never put all your eggs in the same basket! If you only have a Facebook page that you use to run ads on your content and then suddenly Mr. Zuckerberg decides to pull the plug on the whole thing, or maybe just disable your account. In that case, you have literally just lost your business. That is why we recommend that you stay active on all outlets and keep your eye out for new ones that emerge because usually those first adopters will reap the most benefits.  

This really depends on the nature of your business. But in most cases, there is probably at least a partnership or two that can tremendously help your business. It is also a win-win situation because you will gain exposure to that other venture’s audience and vice versa. 
Influencers and vloggers

The use of influencers and vloggers are easily today’s most underpriced marketing means. The process of getting started with them is actually quite simple, let us take a look: 

1. Identify the niche that you are targeting 
2. Search for the most popular content creators (influencers, vloggers, etc.) who are in this space. 
3. Focus on the ones that have audiences that match both the demographic and geographic characteristics of your target client base. 
4. Approach them and make your offer

At the end of the day, testing is the way to go. What works for you might not necessarily work for another business that even works in the same industry. That is why we advise that you deploy and test as much as you can, then go back and reflect on your progress. Just make sure that your operations can handle a growth surge because when things pop off, you want to have the right procedures and systems in place to meet that demand!
