Online PR News – 17-April-2012 – Raleigh, North Carolina – Business visibility, social media and success; can’t have one without the other. For small businesses survival in today’s economy is all about competing on a glocal level. In order to be competitive a business must be found and have a strong brand with visibility to bring in new customers and engage existing customers.
For small and midsized businesses it means having an affordable social media strategy, a website that is search engine optimized, and a process that is integrated with their day to day operations; blogging, messaging, video, and brand management.
Gone are the days of occasional advertising. In order to remain competitive, be found, and have sustainable growth businesses have to be involved in social media. As emerging new social media platforms, Pintrest and Google +, become popular the combined overall process of managing social media is becoming more complex. According to the Social Media Examiner requirements for a solid social media program, from a staffing perspective, range from six to forty hours a week depending on a company’s strategy, industry, and how aggressive it wants to compete for customers.
The partnership with DPA, D. Patterson & Associates, and WEO gives the small business owner an affordable and integrated solution that meets all of their social media management needs, while freeing up staff and reducing costs. Packages are modular giving business owners a way to control what they want to spend and still have an integrated program and strategy to engage customers, track results, be competitive and grow their business.
The strategic alliance, between DPA and WEO, empowers businesses enabling them to mix and match services that meet their needs for building social media visibility and brand awareness: Website development, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube site development, electronic newsletters and surveys, secure forms, on-line bill pay, email, blogging, messaging, search engine optimization / seo, and reputation management. Additional resources for strategic planning, business development, risk management, and cost reduction are also available for small businesses to overcome growth barriers, and increase opportunity.
"We are really excited about the partnership with WEO," said David Patterson, president of DPA. "A business can have a fantastic website and great products but if it can’t be found it may as well be in the middle of the desert. Our products remove the complexity of strategic social media and brand management making it simple so businesses can be found. We give businesses the clout they need to compete with national brands and a strong competitive footprint locally," said Patterson. "Our pricing is aggressive and our services enable small business owners and their staff to focus on what they do best while we do the heavy lifting."
