Do You Have an Online Presence?

How are customers finding businesses like yours and making purchasing decisions? At least 80% of new customers search for local businesses online, not through TV commercials, radio commercials, newspapers, or other advertisement methods.

This cultural change is why having an online presence as part of your small business's advertising strategy is a smart choice for any growing business. Are you missing out on 80% of your potential customers because you're not visible online? Below are a few reasons why you should be using online marketing today.

Immediate Results

After launching an online marketing campaign for a few hours, you will be able to see what is working and what is not. Print, radio, and television advertising do not provide immediate data. It's almost impossible to track exactly how many calls, clicks, or conversions came from these traditional marketing campaigns. However, with online advertising, you see the results immediately and know exactly what is working and what is not.

Relevant Content

Because you can specifically target who will be seeing your online marketing campaigns, your ads will be relevant and acquire high customer engagement levels. People connect to what's relevant, and that connection increases sales. In fact, 85% of people say that they actually enjoy seeing marketing and advertising content when it’s made more relevant to them.


Online marketing is the most cost-effective way to market your business. When it comes to traditional marketing, it’s very difficult for small businesses with limited budgets to compete with larger businesses for ad space. However, with affordable online marketing tactics, small businesses can acquire more with their marketing budget.
