Social Media and Online Marketing are general terms that refer to marketing that is done through the Internet. It can include the social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or others (since the list is continually growing and changing), email marketing and newsletters, or blogs on your website. All of these marketing methods are designed to drive traffic to your products and services, increasing your leads, and growing your business. These marketing methods are constantly changing, with different platforms being right for different business types.
How often should you post on Facebook? Will Pinterest help my business? Is Twitter a platform that is right for me? Should I put a blog on my website? How often should I send out an email to my lead base? These are questions that can be answered with some research and a marketing plan but creating the right plan and implementing it can take some time. It’s also important to set the right expectations about how quickly you will see results with these messages.

Email Marketing & Newsletters
Email marketing and monthly newsletters are a great way to have continued, personal contact with your clients and leads. Creating, growing, and maintaining your email list is important to your business, and helps you by bringing more more viewers to your blog and website. In addition, an email marketing campaign can work as a sales funnel, directly driving traffic to your products and services, growing your business. Email marketing requires an industry specific marketing plan and a consistent schedule, with content that your readers want to read. This may include tips and tricks, interesting articles, or emailed offers. Upstream Administration can help you set up this system or manage it for you, freeing up time for you to work with the leads that develop.
