Marketing Showcase at The Innovation Center – Richmond, IN
A huge thanks goes out to the Center City Development Corporation and West End Bank for sponsoring the Marketing Showcase at The Innovation Center in Richmond, Indiana. We appreciate the opportunity to present our business, as well as participate in the expert panel discussion.
Media outlets from the surrounding areas of Wayne County presented their products and services to the public today, as well as experts were invited to participate in a panel discussion concerning Marketing and Advertising options for businesses in the area.
A reoccurring topic during the panel discussion was social media and small business. Many businesses have taken the initiative to create the initial profile on social media networks such as Facebook, and will initially have some activity, but over a time, it becomes less and less of a priority, resulting in less engagement and reach to consumers.
Unfortunately, this not a trend limited to our area, it is a national epidemic. In fact, reports show that 95% of small businesses, whether they are B2C (Business to Consumer) or B2B (Business to Business), has failed on social media marketing. (Tan, 2014)
