Marketing Strategies for the New Normal – Part 2

Last week we focused on the importance of being client-centric – always good advice. Today we talk about two specific action steps designed to help you connect to potential new clients.

Post Social Media Videos

Five- to ten-minute videos taken on your smartphone or tablet can answer common questions quickly and effectively and are easy to share on not only business profiles, but Facebook groups and related pages as well.

Need ideas? Use Google’s “People also ask” search results or answerthepublic.com.

Reach Out to Local Media

Using local news websites, reach out to field reporters. Find their contact information or Twitter handle and send suggested content ideas for news segments. Marketing expert Angela Wearn: “Content is most useful when it supplements their most recent stories (i.e., if a reporter just announced a local business that shut its doors because of COVID-19, business attorneys could follow up with content about how businesses can protect themselves against the same thing).”

Tips for Implementation

If either of these strategies appeal to you, all credit is due to expert Angela Wearn. For more advice on how to make videos or offer content to reporters, check out her post.
