Often enough, small business owners I work with in Harlem ask me about what makes a marketing firm special. It’s an understandable question to ask, and I’ve written some posts recently to address just this. But if you’re based in New York City and in Harlem in particular, you might want some specialized advice. If that’s the case, check out some of the tips I have for you below.
In New York City and similar cities with large small business communities, competition is harder and your need for specialized marketing is more specific. This is where small business firms are most useful for your marketing needs.
We provide specific kinds of help for small businesses in New York City and other large areas. We take our responsibilities seriously when it comes to your marketing needs. If you want to reach outside of just Harlem, we’re happy to help.
Businesses in Harlem can often feel overlooked. So far uptown, it can be tough to get foot traffic from trendier options. One great solution is finding influencers to work with your small business, allowing you to get name recognition for your store without needing people to get the storefront attention in Harlem randomly. It’s a great means of connecting with people through social media, but figuring out how to find those influencers can often be very tough.
Whether you’re operating in Harlem or not, your small business can benefit from expanding your reach with a marketing firm.
One of the hardest parts of small business marketing is finding the proper audience to target and making sure that you are campaigning to them appropriately. According to the Digital Marketing Institute, a marketing firm’s skills include strong communication skills, proof of marketing success, marketing automation experience, knowledge of branding, and more.
Beyond that, there are a few different responsibilities for a marketing firm to have. To summarize all of it, check out the infographic below for more information.
