"Help! My Content Sucks"

The reason small businesses struggle with creating content for their brand and how to master digital marketing


Our clients tell us often how much they "don't like creating content" or that they shouldn't have to record reels or post on social media because they are not a "content creator". Guess what? Just because you don't like it...doesn't mean your business doesn't need it!


In today's digital age, social media has become a cornerstone of marketing strategies for businesses of all sizes. However, when it comes to small businesses, many seem to miss the mark when it comes to effective social media marketing. While some manage to thrive, others flounder. In this blog post, we'll explore why most small businesses struggle with social media marketing and offer insights on how they can turn things around.




Lack Strategy


One of the most common mistakes small businesses make is diving into social media without a clear strategy. They may post sporadically or without a consistent brand voice. Successful social media marketing requires a well-thought-out plan that aligns with business goals, identifies target audiences, and outlines content strategies.

Inconsistent Posting

Ignoring Your Analytics

Many small businesses ignore the valuable insights that social media analytics provide. By not tracking their performance, they miss out on opportunities to refine their strategies. Regularly analyzing metrics like engagement rates, reach, and conversion rates is essential for improvement.


Failing to Understand Your Audience

Not knowing your target audience can lead to content that doesn't resonate with them. Small businesses should invest time in understanding their audience's preferences, pain points, and behaviors to create content that truly engages.


Over-Emphasis on Sales Pitching


Using social media solely for promoting products or services can be a turn-off for followers. Small businesses often forget that social media is about building relationships and trust. They should aim to provide value and engage with their audience genuinely, rather than constantly pushing sales messages.


Lack of Resources

Small businesses often operate with limited resources, including time and budget, which can constrain their ability to execute effective social media strategies. Outsourcing or dedicating more resources to social media marketing can be a game-changer. If you lack the desire and patience to create, monitor and engage on your social media accounts, it's time to outsource so you can focus on other task while the professionals help you to generate sales online.


In conclusion, social media content is a very important part of digital marketing. Start by changing the way you view content creation of being less of a burden and more of a part of your daily marketing plan.
