Small and local business should be looking to boost (or get started on) their digital marketing strategies. If you feel¬†intimidated¬†by the thought of¬†competing¬†with larger and often better funded organisations – don’t. In digital marketing bigger does not equal better.

With relatively low costs to participate local businesses can leverage their own specialist or niche knowledge and ideas. Being small and nimble can deliver engaging content and interactions that  your larger rivals cannot match.

Here is a quote from an Econsultancy post yesterday on this topic

¬†They (SME’s) should¬†embrace the new social aspects of their digital marketing campaign as a natural extension of what they‚Äôve always done to expand their business in the offline world: drumming up contacts and prospects through active networking.

Plan ahead, avoid being too short term and you can gain significant benefits for your business. You can keep costs under control by using external resources to boost your in house team only when you need it.
