Marketing Approach #1- Build a strong online presence even if it’s on a single product.
Social media is no longer anticipated as a pass-time tool but a necessity that will cost you much if you ignore it. There are brands that are producing a lot. There are brands that give away tonnes of options to consumers for purchase. But then they lack the understanding that when consumers are given tonnes of choices they tend to retract. In the digital era, you must acknowledge to stand out in the crowd. For instance if you are starting a beauty brand, assess what you can provide to customers that other brands are unable or are providing in lesser amounts. Not surprisingly, if you stand strong on one service or product, you can convince customers to buy other products subsequently. The online reputation built on a single product can pave the road to success for other products or services
Marketing Approach #2- Reach out to customers differently

So does people have easy access to various brands and their services being available online now? So how do you manage your reputation? Here, we suggest you to opt for this online reputation approach where you can market research what influences their buying behavior, which social media platforms have access to your target customers particularly and what fascinates the customers. Is it influencer marketing, infographics, expert videos, etc. Touching the micro-moments in another way to market and reach customers differently. Bear in mind, it’s not the strategy that works its the customer tactics that will bring online success.
Marketing Approach #3- Online Engagement is the new tactic
The traditional consumers are now digital consumers. With access to a plethora of brands, attracting their attention towards your brand is a tough nut to crack.

Everything has its own pros and cons. And then we can expect the unexpected when it comes to challenges and user-based stories. What matters the most is how quickly and wisely you identify such challenges and adopt an agile mindset to keep learning and evolving faster.
