Small businesses are the heart and soul of local communities. They are also the foundation of most local economies. For 13 years, Global Marketing Solutions has worked with small businesses to develop and implement marketing plans that help them prosper. Most find working with a company like ours the most effective and cost-efficient way to market their products and services. Consider this:
If you’re a small business owner, you most likely have a passion and a skill set that are fundamental to the type and quality of product or service you provide. To be successful, you must also learn the business skills you need, from accounting to inventory management to hiring the right people.
When do you have time to learn and implement marketing strategies? Can you also become a marketing manager, web designer, content/copy writer, graphic designer and social media manager? Each element plays an important role and even if you hire a “marketing person” with great skills, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
Just one prong of a marketing program, such as development and production of collateral materials, includes the skills of a marketing strategist, graphic artist, content specialist and more. Areas such as social media are even more in-depth, including strategies for owned, paid and earned media along with metrics and analytics for each.
There are agencies, design firms and marketing consultants whose services are extremely expensive. There are some who specialize in packages that don’t work for smaller businesses. But just as their customers have a choice, so do small business owners. If your small business is looking for a team to affordably design and implement smart, focused marketing efforts, GMS wants to be your choice. We’re a small business, too. Let’s work together.
