Why Advertise to Startups with Start Smarter?
At some point, every business on earth has been a startup. Startups are the wellspring from which all economic activity ultimately flows. The entrepreneurs behind these new businesses are smart, savvy, engaged people who are also in the business of building relationships as their enterprise grows and expands. Getting in on the ground floor with them could pay significant benefits in the long run.
Here are some more potential benefits of marketing to startups using Start Smarter:
You’ll expand your customer base
The people who depend on Start Smarter are not just in need of the valuable advice, insider tips and information we provide, they also need to know where they can procure the products they need that will help them get their business off the ground. If you are a B2B with relevant products or services to offer, you are leaving money on the table by not taking your message to this important group. In the long run, marketing to startups will help you expand your customer base and create positive word of mouth.
You’ll generate leads
The entrepreneurs who frequent Start Smarter are typically big on networking. They have to be if they are to get the word out, find the talent they need and learn from other like-minded individuals. As such, they tend to be an invaluable source for lead generation. They spot your ad in the Start Smarter online advertising space; they purchase your product or avail themselves of your service. When everything goes well, they tell their fellow entrepreneurs what an incredible find you were, and you wind up fielding calls from referrals.
You’ll save money
A lot of companies had to do serious belt-tightening during the unprecedented lockdowns of 2020 - 2021. Many didn’t survive and many of the ones that emerged were only able to hang on by the skin of their teeth. As a result, marketing budgets for many of these businesses will be extremely tight for a while and every pound needs to be well spent. If you have a product or service that could benefit a startup, you will find our highly affordable rates to be just what the marketing doctor ordered. And remember, you’re not limited to standard banner ads when you advertise with Start Smarter. You might want to pay for a guest blog instead.
You’ll find an audience that wants what you have
Let’s say you have a shop that refurbishes desktop and laptop computers. You can take a shot in the dark and spend your advertising budget on Google Ads, or you can advertise directly to the people who need what you have. Tech hardware can be a huge expense, and not every startup is swimming in venture capital. Startups are actually one of the biggest consumers of refurbished computers and are always looking for a better place to buy them and have them serviced. Advertising directly to them can greatly increase your advertising ROI.
You’ll deal with actual human beings
These days the process of setting up most internet ad campaigns is automated. If a problem does arise with a company like Facebook, it can take up to 2 weeks for them to review your situation and get back to you. Even then, you are likely to get a form letter of some kind simply restating what you already know: that they didn’t like something about your proposed ad. When you advertise with Start Smarter you deal with real humans right from the start. Our marketing department is staffed by some of the most well-informed and helpful people you’ll find anywhere. And it won’t take them 2 weeks to answer the phone.
You’ll have a chance to increase your authority
By writing an editorial on a business magazine website like Start Smarter you will have a chance to not just advertise your product or service, but to demonstrate your expertise in your field. This type of approach to marketing can go a long way toward bolstering your authority within your given sector, and that can lead to all kinds of new opportunities both in the short and the long-run.
