We know that it is extremely frustrating to gain more sales. You have an awesome product or service, set up your store or place of business, invested in registering your business name and buying other important resources to bring the best quality to your clients or customers, even rented out a space that supposedly has the best traffic whether local or online, and now you are struggling at the most important part of this journey…GAINING MORE CONSUMERS FOR YOUR BUSINESS! Not to worry, we can give you a quick rundown of how these elusive consumers work! So where exactly are they?
The following are certain statistics that give us an estimate on how to find your potential clients. Let’s take a look!
Our present advancement with communication has grown along with our world population of nearly 7.6 billion people but the most amazing fact is that two-thirds of them have a mobile phone!

Knowing these statistics is not as simple setting up an account on all of these platforms. You have to have a marketing strategy that can pinpoint who your potential consumer. Some of the best platforms of choice will be based on the kind of business you own. If you own a dentist office, it would be counter intuitive to use instagram or pinterest, (very visual platforms) to gain clients due to the serious nature and stress associated with dentistry. Unless you are doing a very funny and creative ad, I would recommend sticking to a particular media to host your marketing ads and campaigns.
If you have no idea where to start, you have to start figuring out who exactly buys your product or service.
QUESTIONS TO ASK:
What is the best age range?
Where is the best traffic or physical location of that age range?
What social media platforms are best for that demographic?
What are the popular interest associated with that consumer?
WHAT IS SEO?
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a way that allows you to send data to search engines to bring more value to your business on Google’s index if done correctly and repeatedly!
According to impactbnd.com
“Google receives over 63,000 searches per second on any given day.”
“3. 50% of search queries are four words or longer.”
“More Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers…”
Even though it seems complicated, it can be broken down to content placement, keywords, tags, and other data to simply improve the visibility of your business on Google search!
Many businesses suffer from lack of SEO and knowadays, most businesses fail because consumers are shifting and evolving with our rapidly changing technology.
