Nowadays, consumers are relying on technology to achieve any number of tasks. They are “plugged in." Yes, they are linked worldwide and locally through social media networks.

Instead of flipping through catalogs, magazines and newspapers, they’re browsing websites and searching for information and online reviews about the products and services they want. They’re throwing to the garbage direct mailers and checking their email for coupons instead. What about phonebooks? Very few people under 70 use them.
Today, they’re checking search engines even to find nearby businesses in their neighborhood. In fact, according to one recent survey, 97 percent of consumers use search engines to shop locally and the revenue from all their internet shopping adds up. The eMarketer forecast that total online retail sales will reach nearly 224 billion by the year 2014. It’s all further evidence that consumers everywhere including your customers are moving away from telephone directories, direct mailers and catalogs.

 
So why are you  still spending money on Yellow Pages, newspaper ads and other old school marketing? Your customers want you to be engaged. They want to interact with you and your business. Whether you know it or not, your prospects & customers are using social media. Your customers are looking for information, engagement and communication through a full range of avenues like blogs, emails, videos and even tweets. Marketing online isn’t an option anymore — it’s a requirement.  Good news is that only 26% of small businesses have invested any time or effort in marketing    online. There is still time to get established before it’s too late

Your competitor is already taking advantage of these tools. An annual survey by The e-Tailing Group revealed that 58% of web merchants are developing social networking strategies. The 80% are beginning email campaigns and almost 50% are adopting online video strategies. So you realize how imperative these tools are to control your online success and gaining a competitive edge.

Now, we understand that updating and modifying your online catalog, updating your social network, creating and launching email campaigns and newsletters, and posting in your blog it’s too much to manage and by the time you’ve hired an SEO firm, a webmaster and an email marketer, you’ve washed-out your marketing budget and eliminated any possibility of earning a return on investment. But it doesn’t have to be so complicated.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little
    bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great
    read. I'll certainly be back.

    You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually one thing
    which I feel I might by no means understand. It seems too
    complicated and extremely vast for me. I am having a look ahead
    to your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the hang of it!

    I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative
    and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy I came across this in my search for something relating
    to this.

    Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating
    it but, I'd like to send you an e-mail.
    I've got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing
    it grow over time.

    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what
    I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?
    I'd genuinely appreciate it.
