What You Can Do During COVID-19




Focus on Serving Your Existing Customers and Markets

People tend to take fewer risks in times of uncertainty, and unfortunately this may mean lower conversion rates for the next few weeks or months.

If you’re struggling to generate leads and conversions, ask yourself what you can do to better serve your existing customers and markets.

Know who your customers are and what they love about you. Focus on drilling down within the niche you’ve created.

Taking the Best Photos for Instagram



If you have your business on Instagram, your posts have to look good! Check out these quick and easy tips for professional-looking Instagram photos:


-Use contrast! Contrasting colors create a strong impression.


-Use negative space. Remember that the space around the subject of your photo is often as important as the subject itself! Using negative space properly can make an otherwise simple image pop!


-Keep it clean and focus on one object. Keep in mind how people view Instagram: on mobile devices. The screen is tiny, and your post shouldn’t be cluttered with detail.


-Follow the rule of thirds. Imagine your picture is a 3 x 3 grid. Try to place objects of interest at the intersections of that grid. It might be unintuitive, but placing something right in the middle doesn’t quite catch the eye like these “power points” do.

Growing Your Business With Social Media in Michigan!


Getting your business set up on Instagram? Check out these suggestions for your social media posts!


Motivational: Take the time to brighten your followers’ day! Show them that you’re not all business, and that your brand has positive values.


Educational: You don’t always have to be selling to your customer! Maybe you’re a small brewery—post some facts about how beer is made! Or maybe you’re a cafĂ©—people love knowing about where their coffee comes from. You get the idea!


Employee Engagement: Congratulate an employee on a job well done! Maybe someone in the workplace is having a major life event—use this as an opportunity to celebrate and show a human side to your followers!


Behind the scenes: People love to see how things are made! Giving followers a peak behind the curtain drives engagement and gets people excited about your brand. 


Holidays and Events: There’s a day for everything! Take advantage of funny, off-the-wall holidays like National Cupcake Day or National Love Your Pet Day to reach out to your customers!

Having a robust marketing campaign is one of the hardest things for companies to do consistently, continually, and thoroughly. If you think your marketing campaign is well executed but the numbers still aren’t adding up, your website design could be part of what’s holding you back!

Think of it this way: people searching for your business on the internet are searching much like they would for a regular brick and mortar business. Imagine walking into a store and seeing all their outdated equipment, messy office spaces and unorganized shelves and racks. Would you still shop there? Probably not!

Your website is can have a similar effect on potential shoppers. Your website represents your business, and you want it to be clean, aesthetically pleasing, organized, and useful. This will not only help current customers keep coming back to you, but it will draw in potential customers and clients, too.

Do you own your website picures - or does someone else?



Stock image websites like Pixabay or Unsplash offer up royalty-free stock images. These may not be the best pictures ever, but most of the time they’re pretty good and you won’t run the risk of getting a nasty letter in the mail from a lawyer demanding thousands of dollars for the use of the image! Your website design will benefit from plenty of images so if free sources aren’t panning out, Shutter Stock or Adobe Stock may well be worth the investment.
