Don’t Forget About Your Competitors

Once every six months our account managers will take a gander and see what competitors are doing with their online marketing efforts. This isn’t to copy them or ‘steal’ their strategies but to be totally aware of what the competition is up to. If you ignore your competition entirely, you may be missing out on some key elements to capture a potential customer who may be comparing the both of you.

Here are a few things we look for when studying competitors:

  • Current coupons and specials
  • Gimmicks to lure in customers
  • First time customer promotions
  • Social media strategy and posting schedule
  • Local online marketing efforts
  • Site design and navigation

It’s important for local small business owners to be on their A-Game and cover the ground work with their online marketing efforts.
