Make Digital Marketing Work for You in 2022!

Regardless of our feelings about it, the influence of digital marketing is projected to continue to grow for small businesses. Whether digital newsletters, blogs, or an online store, perhaps it’s time for your small business to embrace a more consistent digital presence. 

Take social media, for example. This year alone, social commerce buyers in the US have increased by 25.2%, reaching over 80 million!

Woah.

While we at BDG encourage all small business owners to invest in creating their own websites and building a strong email list (since none of us own Facebook or Instagram or Tik Tok) or what’s what (and are constantly at their mercy when a social media platform experiences issues), we still gotta embrace it.

How about we all agree that while we may not WANT to embrace digital marketing we’re also missing out on new clients and customers by ignoring it altogether. 

Where’s the balance?

We think we can help.

Listed below are five of our favorite tools to take the pain out of your digital marketing plan. We just love something about each one, so let’s find out how we can:

  • Post consistently on our preferred social media platforms.
  • Connect with potential clients and customers.
  • Retain those relationships.
  • Organize and save time on social media.
  • Take control of our social media presence, rather than IT controlling US!
