No matter how new, old, or successful your business is, all business owners eventually ask themselves the same question:

How can I grow my business? What is missing from my business strategy?

Yes, we too have asked ourselves this question many times, on behalf of our clients, and ourselves. The truth is, growing your business is easier said than done. Taking a pen to paper and brainstorming new, innovative digital marketing ideas is only half the battle. 

If you’re tired of wondering “how do I grow my business,” there are a variety of ways you can approach this obstacle. Today, we wanted to highlight how you can grow your business using digital marketing services. For home service companies, this could mean developing a monthly newsletter for your email list, so new leads are encouraged to visit your website. For small local businesses, this could mean creating a content marketing strategy. Truly, it all depends on what your business needs to grow and succeed.

 

Without further ado, let’s dive into what digital marketing services you need to grow your business, and start thinking outside the box.

 

What are Digital Marketing Services?

By now, everyone somewhat knows about digital marketing services. It’s a phrase thrown around small local businesses and large multinational companies. Yet, as often as we hear the phrase, it’s hard to unpack exactly what these services mean. So before we dive into how you should be using them, we are going to discuss what, and how, these services can benefit your business.

Digital marketing services are concepts and products designed to promote your business online. These products are commonly seen as Google Ads, Facebooks Ads, Google My Business, Instagram, Youtube, and other online platforms. 

 

Additionally, digital marketing services are fairly broad and for good reason - these cover essential things like:

 

Honestly, we could keep going, but you’re probably getting the gist. Under the digital marketing dome, there are so many services.

 

So. Many.

 

So, with this in mind, how do you grow your business using all these services?

 

It takes time, smart tactics, and in most instances, marketing specialists that know one (or more) of these services. Now, let’s unpack that a little bit more, so you can start planning sooner rather than later.

 

Evaluate the Needs of Your Business with a Digital Marketing Agency

Still, asking yourself how can I grow my business? Or, are you asking yourself where to begin?

There are many ways you can grow a small business, or a home service business - the key is to start small with one targeted objective. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and if you’re too eager to grow your business, you’re going to spread yourself (and your staff) way too thin.

First, evaluate what is, or isn’t, performing well. If things seem to be consistently performing across the board, pick something you’d like to develop, like your website’s current search engine optimization (SEO), or your website design and development. Once you pick an area you feel passionate about, take time to research more about the subject. Evaluate different platforms, resources, and tools you can use to grow your business.

 

If you notice one or two items that are a little lackluster in your business, focus all your efforts in finding ways to improve that service. For example, your website is getting plenty of traffic but has little to no sales over the last few weeks. Maybe it’s time to take a different approach to your website design, graphics, and images, to see if it’s no longer visually appealing to your leads. 

Or, take a moment to review your products and services and their content. Is the message clear? Are you offering services that hit your customers’ pain points?

It’s going to take time to find out what does and doesn’t work when it comes to digital marketing services, but don’t let your attention scope range too wide. That’s where things can become overwhelming and difficult to manage.

 

If you’re new to digital marketing, it can be easy to feel frustrated doing it all on your own. Instead of giving up too soon, try the following:

  • Pick One Til It’s Done
    • Don’t juggle too many services at once - online marketing is vast and overwhelming. Pick one objective, and work on it until you feel pretty comfortable.
  • Research Research Research
    • Take the time to learn about your digital marketing service as much as possible. You won’t be an expert overnight, but the more you know, the easier it will be to try your hand at digital marketing.
  • Try and Fail, then Fail Again (it’s totally acceptable)
    • Start small, and sample things that may or may not work. Revamp your website to be more mobile-friendly - if it doesn’t look great, try again. It’s going to take time to master these tasks. Also, failure isn’t your friend, but it’s not your enemy. Learning what doesn’t work is extremely valuable as a business owner.
  • Get in the Groove
    • Once you finally figure it out, do a party dance, and set a schedule for yourself. Work on your website for one hour a day. Research new blog topics for 20 minutes before work. 
    • Continue to rework your services to be more SEO and user friendly. It won’t take long before you feel comfortable.
  • Share Your Findings
    • Knowledge is only as powerful as the ones who wield it. If you’re the only expert in the office, you’re the only one who can do the work. Sometimes it’s good to share your findings, so you can delegate marketing tasks to team members who know what they’re doing.
  • Onto the Next One
    • Don’t stop at one digital marketing service - task yourself with learning as many as possible, and find members of your team to research with you. Together, you can be a united front of marketing wizards.

 

Don’t have time to do it all yourself? It’s perfectly understandable, and relatable. Take all your hard-earned knowledge and share it with a digital marketing agency. As experts, we understand your growing pains, frustrations, and desire to be successful overnight.
