How To Optimize Your Marketing Strategy As A Woman Entrepreneur
Women in the workplace have come a long way. Women today are more educated and more likely to be employed than ever before. In fact, women are now the primary breadwinners in 40% of U.S. households with children under 18 years old, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S Census Bureau data from 2011 to 2015, up from just 11% 50 years ago.
Women entrepreneurs are a growing force in the business world. They are starting to make their mark on the economy and society. Women entrepreneurs have been found to be more successful than men in many ways. Today, women entrepreneurs are not confined to doing the normal types of jobs, i.e., administrative work. They are now taking their gifts and skills and putting them to use to generate income. They are in every market you can think of, from crafting, sewing, cardmaking, jewelry making, embroidery, technology, and so forth. Today’s woman uses her gifts to her advantage and marries these gifts with her natural ability to lead, implement, and run a business.
Women small business entrepreneurs are often at a disadvantage when it comes to marketing their products. They are less likely to be taken seriously by potential customers, and they have to work harder than men just to make their voices heard. The marketing strategies for women small business owners are different from those of male entrepreneurs. Women entrepreneurs need to be aware of the differences between themselves and male entrepreneurs, as well as the differences between themselves and female consumers.
Some of the strategies that women small business entrepreneurs use to promote their businesses include:
- Creating a blog or website with information about the company's services and products.
- Using social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and YouTube for marketing purposes.
- Utilizing video marketing by creating promotional videos or vlogs on YouTube.
- Creating an email list that can be used for customer retention through newsletters or other updates.
- Building relationships with bloggers in the industry who may be interested in writing about the company's products or services.
They should also:
- Know their target market and where they want their product or service to be sold. They have to know what kind of content will interest their audience and what kind of content will convert them into paying customers.
- Find out what customers want in order for them to buy their product and make sure that they provides it.
- Have customers who have already bought their products or services on social media or their websites give a review on the quality of the product as well as the service they have received.
These are just some of the strategies that can take a small business entrepreneur’s business to the top!
