Elevating BIPOC, LGBTQ, and Ally Businesses with Growth-Driven Marketing Strategies that work!

Hey there, dream chasers! Today, we're diving into the world of multi-marketing strategies – the secret sauce for small business owners and side hustlers in the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and ally spaces. We're not just talking about any strategy; we're talking about the game-changer that can take your venture to new heights. Buckle up, because we're about to embark on a journey to identify, craft, and conquer the multi-marketing realm.

The Power of Multi-Marketing

So, what exactly is multi-marketing, and why should it be on your radar? Well, it's all about spreading your wings across various channels to reach your audience. Whether you're slaying on social media, rocking email campaigns, or diving into influencer collaborations – it's about being everywhere your audience hangs out.

Social Media Magic

Let's kick things off with the powerhouse of online presence – social media. For BIPOC and LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs, these platforms aren't just spaces to share cute pics; they're stages for empowerment and connection. Leverage platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to tell your unique story. Share the journey, the wins, and the behind-the-scenes magic that makes your business shine.

Example: Instagram Stories

Take advantage of Instagram Stories. Share snippets of your day, showcase product highlights, or even go live for a Q&A session. Engaging with your audience in real-time builds a personal connection and keeps your brand fresh in their minds.

Pro Tip: When choosing your social media platforms make sure to consider your target market, more specifically your market segmentation (i.e. demographics, age, sex, nationality, median income, values, etc.) when considering which platform to use. If you know where your audience is scrolling and "roaming", you'll then know how to get in front of them and capture leads.

The Importance of Batching

Now, let's talk about batching – the superhero of productivity. As a small business owner or side hustler, time is your most precious resource. Batching is about grouping similar tasks together to maximize efficiency.

Imagine this: Instead of writing one social media post at a time, you carve out a chunk of time to create a week's worth or even a month's worth of content. It not only streamlines your workflow but also ensures a consistent and cohesive online presence.

Example: Content Creation Day

Designate a day each month as your content creation day. Whip out your camera, design tools, or whatever magic you use, and create a batch of content. Schedule it in advance, and voilà – you've just freed up time for other aspects of your business.

Pro Tip: Invest in a Social Media Management like Hootsuite, Loomly, Buffer, LatelySocial, Meta Business, or others to guide your batching efforts. Some of these tools not only allow you to schedule posts and reels out, but some of them will also provide you recommendations on content for your posts based on social trends. Here are a few of our most recent favorites!

Embrace Collaboration

In the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ spaces, collaboration is more than just a buzzword; it's a community builder. Connect with fellow entrepreneurs, influencers, or organizations that align with your values. Co-host Instagram Lives, participate in joint campaigns and amplify each other's voices.

Example: Joint Instagram Takeover

Team up with a fellow entrepreneur for an Instagram takeover. Share insights into each other's businesses, answer audience questions, and cross-promote. It's a win-win that broadens your reach and strengthens community ties.
