New Trends in shed Marketing
The demand for storage buildings and sheds in America is at an all-time high. Who doesn't like the convenience of having their own personal storage right in the backyard?
Americans have accumulated more “stuff” than ever, and since the pandemic, more and more people have tapped into the shed market because they are working from home.
Because of the increased demand for modern sheds, the last couple years has seen tremendous changes in the shed marketing industry.
“Ten years ago it was all about the shed lot and your sign.” For decades, shed businesses had to find ways to get customers to come to the physical retail lot. Shed buyers have driven many miles to see designs and buy sheds.
All that has drastically shifted - Now, clients open their phone, search for “portable sheds for sale near me” and buy a shed with a few clicks.
More Than A Retail Lot
Today, shed companies not only need a shed lot, but they also have to take an online approach if they don't want to be left far behind.
Let's take a look at why digital marketing for the shed industry is so important, and how you can scale your shed business effectively.
The importance of online presence For Your Shed Business
"When you want to make a purchase, start tracking how often you go to your phone or computer to search it before you make the purchase."
Did You Know?
If you're thinking, “I don’t need a website” or “I am selling way too much already” you're missing out on potential customers and in turn, more money.
While building your shed business with little or no online presence is entirely possible, it is increasingly more difficult to edge out the competition that do have websites and an online presence.
Bottom line: One of the best things you can do to set your company apart is getting your business online.
4 Ways To Take Your Shed Marketing to the Next Level Online
1. A Conversion-Focused Website
The first step is building an attractive, conversion-focused, SEO friendly website as the "Hub" of your business' online "Face".
The #1 purpose of a website is simply to get found online, and ultimately to bring customers into your business.
With ever increasing numbers of people using the internet for everything from shopping, to finding local businesses, it just makes sense to tap into this huge market base.
For your website to make a memorable impression, it should be designed for optimal customer engagement - clear, sales-focused, informative, easy to navigate, and visually appealing.
And if you do have a website but it’s outdated, then you should consider an overhaul. The more current your website is, the better.
2. Active Social Media
Utilizing Social Media (Facebook & Instagram, etc.) is a powerful strategy for any size business to reach prospects and customers, and driving organic traffic.
Fun fact: there are 3.78 billion social media users, with people spending an average of 2 hours and 25 minutes per day on social media.
That is why, in today's day and age, social media is a staple in the marketing world. If you’re building a brand, social media is definitely going to be part of the equation.
