It can be tempting as a business owner to attempt to market yourself to a wide-ranging audience. However, this general approach often fails to land and leaves you marketing to no one-relying on strategies that are aimless and scattershot.

We’re all guilty of making the same type of mistake – we take something we need to do now and we procrastinate instead. Telling ourselves, “I’ll get around to it some other time” and inevitably, when we finally do, it’s too late. When it comes to networking, this is an especially costly mistake.

Every week we do a live Facebook video bringing you the latest news from the Hill and online marketing tips. Recently we spoke about Worksafe BC and its anti-bullying training session.
A few months ago we had our Worksafe BC Bullying and Harassment training session. We brought in Ingrid Vaughan, who is an HR specialist. The session took an hour and a half, and we did this because since 2013 it has been a legal requirement in British Columbia that businesses have to conduct these sessions, to deal with harassment and bullying.

You are invited to come to our Google Partners Connect event on B2B Marketing Strategies
What is This?
A Google Event is when Radar Hill hosts a free live webinar focused on a specific area or industry of online marketing. The live stream lasts about one hour, with plenty of time afterwards for questions and answers.
This event is focused on B2B online marketing. Decision-makers are 75% of the way through their purchase process before even reaching out to a brand, and when they are searching for a business to hire, 68% of the research is digitally driven. There is an average of 12 searches online before engaging with a brand.This means it is vital to be online, ready for prospective clients to find you.
Another thing to note is that using multi-screen is the default for B2B researches, but mobile searches are increasing. Having your ads and website adapted to fit both these mediums will maximize its impact. For example, 20% of searches are now done via voice search, and most Google Assistant requests are asked in natural speech. Having content that matches these search styles ensures that your digital presence is as effective as possible.
B2B marketing is hard. Get your online presence to the right person, at the right time. In this digital era, relying purely on word-of-mouth is not enough. Come to this Google workshop about B2B marketing strategies, and we will help you to implement effective methods.
Last year, digitally savvy small businesses were almost 3x more likely to increase calls, leads, and sales inquiries. Not only that, but the top 20% most digitally advanced businesses earned 2x as much revenue per employee.
Over the last year, digitally advanced small and medium-sized businesses experienced revenue growth that was nearly 4 times as high, vs. those businesses that do not have an effective online presence. It’s clear that businesses who embrace digital marketing are winning.
Radar Hill wants your businesses to be successful, and we are here to answer any and all questions you have about the online marketing of your business.
Join us for this free information session to learn how best to market yourself as a B2B business, and use effective strategies to connect with customers in the right place, at the right time.
