Entrepreneurs and small business owners are notorious do-it-yourselfers. Without the backing of major corporations, we need be able to create things and handle our own issues. However, there are some tasks to which we need to trust professionals.
We all have horror stories of service providers and lackluster customer care. Whether it be in a retail operation or the mail service, there are times when you have to dig in your heels as a customer in order to get a fair shake.
So what happens when you, as a customer, may be the one causing issues? Service providers also have horror stories of clients whom they deem “toxic” or a nightmare.
At Cube Creative Design, we pride ourselves on the best in customer service and experience. Rather than “dump a toxic client” like some industry publications suggest, we work through issues and get our clients the best possible outcome and solution for their business or organization.
As we approach the midpoint of 2016, it has become quite clear that social media are a viable marketing platform for business. As we discussed earlier, social media shouldn’t take the place of a well-designed website. However social media can be a great way to interact with customers and build brand loyalty.
So what are some social media trends in 2016? How can you take advantage of social media trends for your business?
Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat, Vine, YouTube, LinkedIn, Google+, FourSquare, Yelp, Gryzzl (OK, that one is fictional): there is always something new to remember. It may seem easier to avoid jumping on the train and instead take a nap in the train station. Or it may be tempting to use these free social platforms to market your business and neglect a proper website.
As endless as the platforms may seem, there is a good middle ground to successfully market your small business online. You just have to view social media platforms as what they are: a marketing tool to reach out to potential and current customers and bring them to your business.
The giving season is upon us, and as marketing campaigns boost the idea of Giving Tuesday, many non-profit organizations may be asking how to make it easier on their donors to contribute. Most non-profit organizations have two main purposes for a website: raise awareness for their cause and solicit for donor support. Most websites do a great job on the former point, but often struggle with the latter.
