Summer is here! And what better time of year to take a break from one huge aspect of your business: your digital marketing?
I’m not talking about stopping your marketing activities or reducing your advertising spend – but it is a good idea to let someone else take the reins on your digital marketing efforts. Whether you want to take a vacation, focus on other business operations, or simply worry less, investing in a digital marketing partner can help you get back to what you love.
Here are three ways a digital marketing partner like ReachLocal can take some of the pressure off of you this summer (and beyond).
1. It Saves You Time
Life is busy, and one thing we all we wish we had more of is time. If part of your workday includes managing your search advertising campaign, writing blog and social posts, keeping your website and local listings up to date, and trying to make sense of how it’s all working – you’re not just a business owner, you’re a marketer, too. And while doing all of this is critical to growing your business, it can also be time consuming. By doing a huge chunk of the work for you, a digital marketing partner can give you back a lot of the time you’re spending on your marketing and advertising. That means you get more of your day back to run the rest of your business – and even get home in time for dinner!
2. You Get Marketing Expertise
Running all of your own marketing not only takes time, but each tactic, like search advertising, SEO, website development, display advertising, and social media, requires a different set of expertise, content, and creative to make them successful. And it’s pretty rare that someone is an expert in all of these areas. That’s why a lot of digital marketing companies like ReachLocal have teams of experts focused on each of these domains — like your website or your search advertising– but all work together for your business. This means you get a high level of expertise in all of these areas, which makes your all of your marketing more effective.
3. Lead Management Is Automated
One of the greatest challenges of digital marketing is what you do with marketing leads once you have them in hand. Many digital marketing companies offer an additional layer of lead management to help you do more with the leads you do get. ReachLocal’s ReachEdge technology, for instance, includes real-time lead notifications and automated lead response tools to help you know when you get a new lead and improve follow up so you get even more appointments and sales from your marketing efforts, even when you’re out of the office.
