Online Marketing Strategy 1.0 = Lead your brand personally on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook

People care about your business and services if they are meaningful and helpful for them to live a better life. But no one knows how effective they are until you’re not going to tell your targeted customers, how your products and services are beneficial.

So, my first online marketing strategy is the lead your brand personally on YouTube Channel, Facebook Profile, and Twitter social media platform.  These are Social Media Website existed to connect people. Social Networking websites improve the quality and speed of communication.

This is a great opportunity for you to lead your brand on Social Media.  Communicate and build a relationship with those people who have similar values like yours. If you believe you’re clever then target similar people. If you think the horse is your favorite animal then target people who like and share horse photographs.

You can also try to build a network with authority people in your area. Tell them or pay them to produce and share your business content on social media websites and with their followers.

Remember, you don’t’ need a celebrity to promote your business. Celebrities or popular people charge more money from you and you can’t build a true relationship with your customers. Celebrities, Popular TV Stars, Sports stars are only used in marketing for instant results. They are not effective in the long term. You have to pay every time for them. But why others, when you can do it.

The disadvantages are many hiring celebrities to promote business. But one of them is that “they don’t know and use those products they are promoting.

It’s simply misguiding customers and taking advantage of their fan following to buy the products of that company. And because of this, companies are able to sell fake and low-quality products through celebrities.

I am not against brand promotion through celebrity; I am just telling it can be manipulated to cheat people.

But do you know about the most successful companies, high-quality products, higher in cost and great in profits? I think you know!

Steve Jobs market his products by themselves. Baba Ramdev uses his own image to advertise Pantajali Ayurved products by its own by TV and Products banner. What do you think? They also hired others too. But because they have beliefs and knowledge about product quality and values.  And you can see in the advertisement their confidence is higher than other product promoters in the advertisements.

That’s why I think you’re the best celebrity to promote your products. Because you created that, you know how it works, you know the quality of your products, you’re connected with your business emotionally and purposefully that’ why you have to promote your products own without spending money on Celebrities or stock images.  It’s a challenging marketing strategy but you will get a higher conversion, more sells and more profit at a low cost.

If I am looking to buy something on your website, or I am looking for certain services, I want to see the real person, not attractive stock photos. Because those photos are known by users today, they know you’re using them to convincing us to buy, people want real people. They want to deal with you. That’s what I think.
