5 ways to build your brand that aren’t social media marketing. πŸ’»

When it comes to building a brand, the more diverse your strategy is, the more effective you will be. So, in addition to social media marketing, you may want to consider one or all of the following effective brand building strategies:

1. Build a killer website 🌐 and take advantage of google business.

Some people don’t use social media. Make sure potential clients that are using internet search engines are able to find you.

2. Really get to know your target audience. 🎯

Whether you’re shipping phone cases and other accessories all across the world or selling your personally designed, handmade bows and children’s clothing through an online store, knowing your target audience can help you market more effectively and get a better return on investment in ads and other strategies.

3. Start writing a blog. πŸ““

Blogging helps build your brand; and not only is it easy and free, but when done right, it can also be extremely powerful (businesses that make serious blogging efforts are 13 times more likely, according to Hubspot, to see a positive return on investment). You can use your blog to do everything from notifying customers of an upcoming or ongoing promotion and educating customers on how to use your product, to improving SEO and, of course, establishing your brand.

4. Create an Email πŸ“§Subscription.

Offering an email subscription is a great way to build your brand, whether you want customers and potential customers to receive a monthly newsletter or simply get regular updates on sales, promotions and giveaways.πŸ’ΈπŸ· .

5. Focus on Customer Service. ❀

Customers are what make any business a success. Customers greatly value positive experiences with a company, and the not so great ones are enough to cause them to never shop with a company again. After a good experience, however, not only are they more likely to stay loyal, they’ll likely tell their friends. 😁

Office Manager to Social Media Manager

Welcome to my site and blog. πŸ™‚

I will start off by telling you a little about me, I am married to my best friend, Ronnie. I just had our first baby, Kimber 4 months ago. #newmom (I will blog about her another day) Last month I resigned from my Office Manager position to pursue my “side gig” full time. Here’s the story about how my business, LB creative has come to life.

During the last 2 years while working as Office Manager at Recover, I gained incredible, invaluable experience in customer service, marketing and social media. I started the company’s social media pages and posted on them daily. I set up events with other company’s, planned and hosted open house events. I passed out flyers, designed graphics, learned how to do email marketing campaigns…the list goes on and on.

Anywho, I started doing social media for another company in Feb 2017 while working for Recover. Around this time, I concluded that I LOVE creating content, its really fun and i thought “OMG other Businesses might need my help too!” I educated myself and researched the industry. I love that I can work from anywhere, my home, on vacation, my car, the park, in line at starbucks…whatever you get it. πŸ™‚ While on Maternity leave, I got a couple more social media clients and I decided that I’m ready to make social media management my full time job.

It was hard to leave Recover. I watched those locations form from empty buildings under construction into a thriving businesses and I absolutely loved being a part of it. ❀ I loved the responsibility. I loved the clients, I loved the staff. I loved learning so much. I NEVER thought i would learn to juggle being the manager, a marketing guru, the maintenance woman, and other various hats I wore. I loved the mental challenge.

However, I could not ignore what God and my heart were telling me. I knew it was my time to gracefully pass the baton on to someone else. I have always wanted to own by own business. My mom loves to tell me stories about my entrepreneurial, “go- getter” spirit as a child πŸ™‚ (blog topic for another day) So as the title states, HERE WE GO! LB Creative is a Tulsa based Digital Marketing Agency, I offer: Social Media Management, Social Media Coaching, Content Marketing, SEO, Email marketing campaigns, Graphic design, Photography, Gopro video and Photography.

I am excited for this opportunity and thankful that God has faithfully provided for me and my family during my maternity leave. I’m humbled and amazed that it has continued now as I am starting out on my own. I will continue to have faith in his plan. ❀

See you next week!
