Red Shark Digital | Solving Small Business Pains

2018 is the year of the entrepreneur as small businesses are springing up everywhere! Many small businesses fail in the first year they are in business for various reasons. I’ve compiled a list of 5 major pains for small businesses, all of which the talented folks here at Red Shark Digital can remedy.

Problem: Nobody Wants to Work for Me!

I ranked this problem number one because it takes employees to run a business and if you don’t have any your business will not flourish. Many small businesses struggle with recruiting employees that are not only quality but that actually want to work for the company

Problem: My TV and Radio Ads aren’t really bringing in customers!

Say this out loud, slowly: TV is DEAD. Radio is DEAD. Neither of them is coming back. If you're still advertising solely on TV and radio with the explosion of online streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and Spotify, it's no wonder you're not getting the results you want! Very few people under the age of 40 are even still paying for traditional cable or satellite service, so if you're solely advertising on those platforms you're missing a very large population.

Solution: Digital Advertising and SEO

Digital Advertising can be anything from an aggressive Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaign to social media advertising. I know you're wondering, what the heck is SEO exactly. SEO is the process of refining your online presence both on-site and off-site to maximize your website’s performance. The result? Higher rankings when customers google search which will lead to increased amount of traffic to your website.

Problem: My Website Sucks!

It is 2018 and the internet runs the world around us. It’ time out for websites that are not user-friendly! If your business still doesn't even have a website you are way in the dark ages! A functioning website is crucial to the success of any business in this day and age. Don’t get left behind!

Problem: My sales aren’t booming and I want to sell online but I don’t know how

The main goal for most businesses is to generate revenue. That revenue is created by the sale of goods or services. According to the US Department of Commerce, online sale accounted for 394.9 BILLION dollars, yes that billion with a B, in 2016. If you’re not selling your goods and services online, you should be.

Problem: I Can’t Figure Out how to get an Edge on my Competition

One of the biggest problems of smaller business is competing with other brands that are already established and well known. It can be difficult to make your business stand out amongst all the others that consumers come into contact with every day. If a business can’t actively compete with its competitors staying in business and making a profit will be extremely difficult.
