We all know that at the moment there are a lot of challenges facing us and our businesses. So we could all do with some help in the way we grow our business. During a cost of living crisis we want to save money where we can, while still making an impact. To help you out with this, we will be sharing some of our advice for businesses during this crucial time.
Consistent marketing & social media posting
If your business is active across social media platforms you are guaranteed to grow your outreach. Social media posting will draw new customers, and keep existing ones, as well as promote educational and informative content.
It takes a lot of time and energy to create and post social media posts each day. That is why we recommend using a social media scheduling tool. There are many to choose from such as Hootsuit and Canva Content Planner. This allows you to spend a few hours creating a bulk of content for the next few days, weeks or months.
Write insightful industry blog posts
Sharing blog content is a great way to gain more visitors and grow your business. You can share industry information from your business such as news, advice or tips. You are building trust within that industry community, and in turn you are gaining recognition for your brand.
As well as this, blogging actively has a 126% higher conversion rate for businesses compared to those who do not.

Create video content discussing industry topics
YouTube is the second largest search engine. With over 2 billion users visiting the site each month, you definitely want your business to get involved with the hype.

Sharing interviews, conversations, reels and live streams where you discuss key topics and advice on your industry can get your business seen by potential clients.
Think about what your customers and clients want to know and try to give them what they’re looking for.
