The Rationale behind the Small Business Digital Starter Pack
Running a small business is difficult enough – building a comprehensive digital presence need not be. However, the majority of small entrepreneurial businesses lack an in-house marketing team. Gearbox Creative provides a full digital solution to start-ups and fledgling businesses. As a small business ourselves, we understand the importance of effective and targeted digital marketing in a world in which information seems limitless and is so easily available. Therefore, we bring you the Small Business Digital Starter Pack.
Why is the Small Business Digital Starter Pack so Important?
It is predicted that within the next three to five years, new business will, predominantly, come from digital leads. Given the online boom in South Africa, not being a part of the digital revolution will severely impact on the viability of your small-to-medium-sized company. Even having a web presence is no longer sufficient. Adopting an integrative approach to online, social media, and digital and social media marketing is the only way small companies can survive the ever-changing business environment.
What is Included in the Small Business Digital Starter Pack?
Gearbox Creative has created a full suite of digital tools – the small business digital starter pack – that, when implemented, will immediately boost your company’s digital footprint. However, to most effectively take advantage of these tools training is necessary. This is provided by the Gearbox Creative experts who will host workshops in each aspect of the digital package. Whether its writing blog posts to Google’s standard, creating effective tweets, selling homemade goods online or the use of Google AdWords campaigns, Gearbox Creative can assist. All our websites are developed to the latest web standards. Systems deployed on the latest CMS platforms ensure the flexibility and agility needed to survive the forever-changing digisphere. The creation of custom-built eCommerce stores, with a full range of payment gateway options, is a specialty of ours. Although we provide training to complement your starter pack, continued support from Gearbox Creative is always available.
