Zuckerberg, Jobs, and Dorsey.
Do any of these names ring a bell?
If not, you probably recognize the companies they started: Facebook, Apple, Twitter and Tumblr.
While I am fairly certain that you are aware of most of these companies, did you realize that before they launched their IPOs or were listed as Fortune 500 companies – they were start-up visionaries, just like you?
Buckle Up, It’s Gonna Be A Bumpy Ride
Creating and Launching a Start-Up is One of the Most Simultaneously Daunting and Rewarding Experiences You Will Ever Have
People who do not understand will tell you that you’re crazy and will try to dissuade you with scary statistics – but if you have the winning recipe for success, don’t let anything get in your way.
I am sure you have seen a ton of start-ups launch and bust over the past few years, and what sets apart the failed attempts from the Facebooks ultimately comes down to awareness and marketing.
According to Statistic Brain, one of the leading start-up management mistakes is lack of market awareness – and the same report indicates that 11% of start-ups fail due to a wasted advertising budget.
Scary stuff, right? You may be focused on building your product, taking it to market and trying to drum up sales, but if you don’t have a plan for marketing, you’re shooting yourself in the foot.
Close.io argues that word-of-mouth marketing and referrals is the most crucial marketing tactic for start-ups. Referral sales can be your #1 source of new hot leads and can turn into a massive growth engine for your business.
Does Your Start-Up Have a Referral Program?
Nielsen research shows that 84% of consumers trust referrals from friends and family over all other forms of advertising – additionally, 77% of consumers are more likely to buy a product after hearing about it from someone they trust.
As previously mentioned, referrals sales can have a huge impact on your business. Referrals can come from pretty much anywhere, you’re employees or family/friends talking about your business on social media, happy customers and loyal fans.
Do you have a plan in place to transform your employees, top customers and loyal fans into brand advocates for your business?
The Most Important Currency (Outside of Money) Is Time
To create your vision or product, develop it, bring it to market and generate buzz takes time, a currency that escapes most start-ups.
What if I told you that you could create your brand advocacy program, bring on your employees, loyal customers and top fans as social media brand ambassadors and start driving referral business in just a few short minutes – using Social Horse Power.
Too good to be true? Wait, we’re not done yet…
