Cracker Barrel Marketing

Social Media Marketing is time consuming. There is no doubt about It. It’s time consuming because it isn’t just having customers drop by to make a purchase. It’s setting up your “cracker barrels”, putting on the coffee and tea and taking the time and effort to make relationships. It’s talking to people and, more importantly, it’s listening to your customers. There's no better way to find out what they need and how you can help them.

Every year there is an increase in online buying. When you shop online, don’t you feel reassured when you can read positive reviews of a company or hear good things about them from someone you know? I know I do. Searching on the internet for information on products and services is becoming more and more frequent. That’s one reason to get your information out through social media marketing. Setting things up, getting started and being consistent all take time. The benefits outweigh the effort though. And, there are virtual assistants out there who specialize in helping you create a great social media campaign. I’m one who would be happy to help you.
