Social Media Marketing For Graphic Designers

This will give you some idea on what to do, if you want to profit in your graphic design business, through the social media.

A lot of businesses may not be doing most of these on the social media yet, if you wish to be ahead of the competition however , and would also like to get some substantial results through the social media in your business, you will need to do all of the following in your graphics design business, in order for you to be able to achieve some specific ROIs or profit goals through the social media.

Before you use the social media for the promotion or marketing of your graphic design product/service, you will need to have

  • Chosen a potentially profitable graphic design niche to sell to
  • Chosen the targets (potential customers) that you will be selling to in your niche
  • Defined the country(s) and/or location(s) of your chosen targets
  • Determined the type of graphic design product/service that you will be selling to the targets in your chosen niche
  • Defined the value(s) that you will be providing to your chosen targets with your graphic design product/service
  • Tested the demand for your graphic design product/service before you start a business based on it
  • Defined a uniqueness for your graphic design product, service and/or business, that will provide your targets with a reason, to prefer your graphic design product/service and/or business to your competitors’
  • Determined how much you would want to make in net profit, in your graphic design business from your chosen niche, within a specific period of time, with the graphic design product/service that you may have chosen to sell
  • Determined the number of customers/targets that you will need, in order for you to make as much as you want in terms of profits, in your graphic design business, within the specific period you may have defined

You will need to do this in order for you to be able to

  • Determine what to sell, who to sell to, and how you will sell your graphic design product/service (that is, either locally, nationally or globally).
  • Determine the type of graphic design product/service that you can sell, that your targets (potential customers) will want and buy through the social media
  • Determine the type of content, offers and ads, that you will need to create or ask others to create for your business, that you can use to promote or market your product/service, and/or business effectively through the social media, in order for you to make the sale
  • Determine who, that is, the targets to look for on the social media that are likely to buy your graphic design product or service
  • Find targeted followers for your graphic design business on the social media, that fit your targets’ profile
  • Determine how much you will want to make in net profit through the social media, in your graphic design business, within a specific period of time (this will be your social media profit goal)

You can do each of the above (that is, choose a potentially profitable graphic design niche to sell to etc) with some research, for your business by yourself, and with the help of your employees and/or third parties (through outsourcing). You will need to determine each one of these for your business, if you wish to succeed with it, and with your use of the social media for the promotion/marketing of your graphic design product(s) or service(s).

You will need to do these whether you are a small, medium-size or big design business, or whether your graphic design business is local, global or international.

You May Choose To Sell Worldwide And/Or To One Or More Countries, Locations And/Or Targets Through The Social Media

You may choose to sell your graphic design products/services to others on the social media worldwide, and/or to some specific countries, locations and/or targets, what you may decide to do will depend on where you may have chosen to focus on, in your business.

This is part of what you would have researched on to determine how and what you will sell, and where you will sell your graphic design product/service, before you start your business, as noted above. You can still do the research for this now, even if you have already set up your graphic design business. You can use The Profit Blueprint to help you with this.

Once you’ve done the research for your business to determine who your graphic design targets are and whether you will be selling your graphic designs worldwide and/or to some specific location or country, you can then look for your targets on the social media.

You will need to first of all determine where you can find your graphic design targets on the social networks, that is, you will need to do some research to determine whether you can find your targets on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter etc. And will also need to define some profit goal that you would want to achieve, through the targets that you will be getting to, on the social media.

You will also need to create/develop a social media strategy and plan that you can use to achieve your profit goal through the social media too.
