To get you going in the proper direction, we compiled a few tips to start your new year off right.
It’s budget season and budgeting can be tough. There are so many costs to consider and marketing should be one of them.
The U.S. Small Business Administration recommends established businesses (businesses with $5 million in annual revenue) spend 7 to 8 percent of their gross revenue on marketing. However, new and growing companies, or companies in a competitive market, can spend up to 20% of their gross revenue with prosperous results.
Below are some tips to optimize your 2019 marketing budget:
- Optimize your emails
- Make sure emails are coming from a recognized sender name
- Create a subject line that leaves the reader wanting more
- Make sure your email is developed for computer AND mobile viewing
- Stay on top the changing social media updates
- Only promote your best content – less is more
- Recent updates increased effectiveness of paid social media ads
- 72% of consumers prefer video to learn about a new product or service
