Understanding Your Business and Strategy

It is essential to comprehend your business, processes, and customers before diving into technology selection.

A clear strategy is key to identifying the technology that best supports your business goals.

Seeking Expert Assistance

Social media marketing is not about bombarding your audience with sales pitches. Scenda advocates for the 80/20 rule – where only 20% of your content is promotional and the rest focuses on being entertaining, inspirational, or educational. Crafting content that resonates with your audience improves engagement and subtly incorporates your brand message.

Networking for Success

Beyond customer engagement, social media is a powerful tool for networking. Establishing connections with clients, influencers, and potential employees can enhance operational performance, ultimately leading to increased revenue. Scenda’s own experiences highlight how social media can open doors to valuable opportunities, such as podcast appearances.

Quick Tip: Leverage social media to connect with clients, influencers, and potential partners to improve your business operations.

In conclusion, selecting the right technology demands a deep understanding of your business, a clear strategy, and expert guidance. By prioritizing simplicity, value, and the seamless integration of technology into customer experiences, small business owners can leverage technology as a catalyst for growth and success.
