Many smaller companies realize they need digital marketing but don’t have the resources internally to manage the function successfully. Previously, only two options have been available to companies. Miss out on the opportunities of SEO with Lancashire digital marketing agency and digital marketing or hire a marketing manager.
Hiring a marketing manager is ideal for larger companies or in times of plenty, but to smaller companies or in tighter economic times this has proved a financial hurdle.

What should you focus on?
To start with, you could try these 2 simple solutions
Set up a YouTube Chanel.
Did you know that Youtube is used by over 1.3 billion people world-wide and over 300 hours of video are uploaded every minute? This makes YouTube another excellent platform to promote your business. Videos should be short and informative and include calls to action. They are a great way to promote new products or show ‘how to’ instructions for your products.
If neither of these options apply to your company, then you can upload a corporate profile or maybe show the history of your company. Interviewing staff members is also a popular way for companies to engage with the audience.

Email marketing is also far reaching – with over 4 billion email accounts active around the globe, you can almost guarantee that every prospective lead will have an email address for you to contact. There are many platforms available that offer a free email service, making email marketing a very cheap and valuable marketing option.
