What exactly do we do? It's a question we hear frequently. With the social media industry being relatively new, many business owners don't know exactly what to ask.
During a recent initial meeting, we asked a potential client what was most important to him when we were building a proposal for him. He didn't know. And that's okay, because that's what Marketing 2 Go is here for. We're here so you don't have to think about - or worry about - your social media and marketing.
Here's a snapshot of the solutions we offer:
Branding! Look at McDonalds - it's the arches, Target has the circles, politicians have the same t-shirts, business cards, commercials, yard signs, etc. We make sure that you are successfully branding your business so that when you are getting the word out, you are sending a consistent message to your current and future customers.
Facebook: We build - or improve upon - a current Facebook page for brands, a company, a public figure, or even a personal Facebook page. We then manage the Facebook page. This includes strategy, daily postings, promotional and event campaigns, cause marketing, and more. We also track the intricate analytics that Facebook offers and recommend and manage Facebook ad campaigns.
Twitter: We launch a Twitter page - complete with a custom cover image - to brand you company. We recommend all your social media pages, web site, business cards, brochures, and any other marketing material look similar. This creates a concise brand that's easily recognizable to clients and potential clients. We connect with related businesses, vendors, people, bloggers, and anyone else that is a potential source for referrals for your business on Twitter.
Pinterest: Launched in March, 2012 Pinterest is ranked the third top visited social networking site in the United States with 100 million monthly users. It has been described as a virtual bulletin board. The site allows you to create 'pinboards' to organize and share pictures. You can connect with people all over the world based on your common shared likes and interests.
YouTube: We custom build a YouTube channel for your business. Ther are over 4 billion videos vieweed on Youtbe per day, with an estimated 6 billion hours of videos viewed per month. There are over 500 tweets per minute with YouTube video links in them. In 2006, Google purchased YouTube, so when your videos are properly tagged with key words about your video and business, they are 50 times more likely to rank on the first page of Google. We work together to craft a strategy of what type videos to upload to YouTube. We often recommend your channel include staff introductions, customer testimonials, event videos, tutorials, instructional videos and more.
LinkedIn: We highly recommend all of your top level company executives have a professional profile on LinkedIn. With over 433 million users, it's the largest business to business social networking site.
