As a business owner, you have a LOT on your plate—trust me, I know. Marketing and design is probably the last thing you want to contend with at the end of your long days. We get that. The Sprk’d team is here to help small businesses and startups, so you can focus on what’s most important—running your business.
Trying to do everything is the quickest way to do nothing. By choosing the social networks and mediums that are most effective for your business, you can see the greatest return. You don’t need to be on LinkedIn and Pinterest and Twitter and Facebook and Snapchat and Quora and, and, and, and… Pick the most effective and own it. Grow organically.
You are the subject matter experts in your industry, and it’s our job to create a content marketing framework for you and your team. We can then teach your team (or ours) how to leverage your expertise effectively online.
Content marketing, strategy, SEO, social media, etc. is not a “set it and forget it” activity. Without the proper care and upkeep, you will never achieve the results you want. That’s why we make sure our clients not only know what we’re working on for them, but that they also know why it’s important and how it impacts their business.
Everybody wants to be liked online, but going after vanity metrics such as Likes and Follower counts without a clear purpose amounts to nothing more than “social media hugs.” It does nothing for your bottom line. From the start, we outline your specific and measurable goals and create a plan to reach those goals.
