Conceptualising an idea for a business is simple, it’s the next steps that are more challenging. One of the things startups struggle with is spreading the word that they exist and are ready to serve. Here’s where digital marketing comes into play and, depending on how you use it, it could elevate your business to new heights.
It may be hard to imagine that, years ago, people primarily used direct mail (a.k.a. snail mail) and landlines to communicate with their loved ones in far-away places. With technological innovation, particularly the arrival of social media, all that has changed.
Ever since its birth, social media has become an avenue for engagement and communication for people from different parts of the world. In digital marketing parlance, engagement can be in the form of likes, reactions, shares, comments, retweets, and hashtags.
We’re pleased to announce that Curate Bee Digital CEO and Founder, Sandra D’Souza, has been selected as one of the possible winners in the upcoming Social Media Marketing Awards (SMMA). Sandra has been named as a finalist in the Best Social Good Award category which recognises the best social media campaign for a not-for-profit organisation. This is definite proof of her skills and dedication in using digital marketing to help organisations—both for-profit and not-for-profit—meet their marketing goals.
Marketing moves fast. And, with the internet and advances in technology, it’s moving faster than ever.
This is a crucial truth today’s businesses should take seriously—being left behind is no longer an option. Digital marketing opens new ways and avenues for brands to reach and engage their target markets better. It also levels the marketing playing field, so much so that SMEs can compete with the big boys in their field.
