Through managing my client's digital marketing, along with my digital marketing, I've found common easy to use steps for starting and continuing your digital marketing plan for your small business. Here are five tips to get you on your way to create a simple and effective digital marketing campaign for your small business.
Tip #1: Start Small
Starting small may seem like a silly idea; however, starting your social media digital marketing plan is similar to changing your lifestyle or eating habits - if you put too many tasks and goals on your plate at once, you're less likely to succeed at your plan.
an email list, you can begin your plan by choosing a day of the week to send out an email to your email list.
By starting with one to three days a week for your marketing plan, you'll be able to create a manageable schedule that you can succeed in completing every month!
Tip #2 Using email to Bring Attention to Your Website
Email is and have been one of the best tools for your successful digital marketing endeavors. Email marketing can bring more awareness to your brand or product you want to sell or promote with a captive audience.
A great email idea is to create videos informing your list of the item or service you want to sell. Next, make sure to link to a blog, video, or lead magnet underneath your video for your call to action to direct your customer to the next step.
Tip #3 Sign-up for a Social Media Scheduler
Social media schedulers are one of the biggest timesavers if you regularly post on your social media channels. If you're not posting consistently, using a social media scheduler can keep your social track consistent. My go-to scheduler is Buffer, but other schedulers out there that people love, including Later and Social Bee.
Tip #4 Add holidays to celebrate on your social media feed

Tip #5 Use a lead magnet to capture email leads
A lead magnet is a free giveaway that you can offer in exchange for potential clients visiting your website. Nowadays, you aren't going to get an email contact without an incentive attached to people giving away their information. Therefore, creating a simple lead magnet can be as easy as a one-page PDF with general tips or advice on a niched-down topic that will solve pain points for your website visitors.
Using these five essential tips, you can start to create your digital marketing plan. Remember to start small and build up consistent marketing to gain momentum and continue to schedule your digital marketing to increase your client reach and touchpoints to remind your followers about your product or service!
