5 Social Media Tips for Orlando Small Businesses

Social Media can be hard to navigate, especially for small businesses that may not have the capital to invest in a consultant. But with 45% of the world’s population active on social media, it’s worth investing some extra time. The advent of social media changed the way we communicate with our friends, family, and, especially, customers. Small Businesses are in a unique position to leverage their scale to make real connections with customers through social media, at little-to-no monetary cost. Here are 10 tips for tackling social media that won’t cost you much time or money.

5 Social Media Tips for Orlando Small Businesses

  1. Evaluate your goals

    Before investing the time and money into creating a social media presence, it’s important to reflect on your business goals. What are your marketing objectives and how can social media help you to achieve them

    Once you’ve determined that a social media endeavor is the right strategy to achieve your goals, define the key metrics to measure the success of this venture.  Are you generating brand awareness? Consider tracking metrics like shares and re-posts. Is your goal to generate leads? Make sure to have a plan to track the leads you get back to social media, either on your website or through a customer survey. For insights and inspiration, look to blogs by Orlando agencies Findsome & Winmore, Designzillas and Gravitational Marketing, which are full of social media tips, tricks and tactics.

  2. Become a thought leader

    Running a business means you are an expert in your field - and social media is a great way to build your credibility. Provide your audience with valuable and relevant information they typically wouldn’t know where to find. Focus on creating posts and content that your audience cares about, even if it is not directly related to your product or services.

    Some brands also do a great job of providing customer service on social media. For example, the official Twitter account of Orlando International Airport (MCO) provides flight and weather updates, travel tips and responds to customers in real time. Think about how you can use social media to add an extra layer of customer service to your business.

  3. Show, don’t tell

    The old idiom “a picture is worth 1000 words” is even more true on social media. That’s why platforms like Instagram and Snapchat are so popular. Use the platforms to showcase photography that represents your brand.

    For a well-curated Instagram account, check out The Ravenous Pig and Gideon’s Bakehouse on Instagram. Apps like Layout for Instagram can be helpful when curating a visually pleasing Instagram feed.

  4. Reach out to influencers

    Social media influencers harness the public’s interest in their personal lives to become a new form of salesperson. The trust they develop with their followers lends weight to their endorsements. It’s like celebrity endorsement, but generally cheaper and more effective.

    Reach out to influencers in your industry or local community by offering them a free service or trial of your product to get their support for your business. Check out local businesses Statusphere and IZEA that help brands partner with appropriate influencers.

  5. Empower employee advocacy

    Every employee can be an ambassador for your brand. If you sum the social media following of all your employees, it is probably greater than the following of your company pages. Encourage employees to use their platforms to share company news and information with their audiences. You can even incentivize employees who participate with gift vouchers to local restaurants or attractions.

    Platforms such as Social Reacher efficiently disseminate information, and track activities towards incentive programs for no cost to organizations with fewer than 50 participants.

Establishing your social media presence doesn’t have to be a dauting task. These tips will help small business owners tackle social media strategically. Take advantage of your scale and get creative with how and where you present your brand and engage with your customers.

Small Business Opportunities at Greater Orlando Aviation Authority

There's never been a better time to do business with Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA). With the completion of Phase I of Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) new South Terminal C Airport People Mover (APM) and Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF), a huge opportunity exists for small businesses in the seven-county Orlando region to benefit from the large-scale construction projects. GOAA wants small businesses to know how they can work with the airport.

The opportunity for small businesses to reach regional, national and international consumers is immense. MCO is one of the busiest airports in the country, and the busiest in Florida. The latest Airport’s Council International (ACI) rankings recognized MCO as No. 1 in Florida, No. 11 in the country and No. 39 in the world. It’s also the third fastest growing airport in the United States, with 47 million total passengers so far this year.

George I. Morning, Director of the Small Business Development Department at GOAA, cited the power of partnerships with small businesses as having the greatest impact on the Orlando region. “With your help and support we will reap dividends that will grow our community and better our economy.”

These dividends are already being realized. Of the more than half a billion dollars awarded for the large-scale construction projects at South Terminal C, an impact study found that nearly 32 percent of the total value went to small businesses. The projected total economic impact of the project for Orange, Osceola, Lake and Seminole Florida counties will be the support of 4,342 jobs, translating to more than $660 million total economic output and $20 million in state and local tax revenue.

Carolyn Fennell, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Community Relations for GOAA, reiterated the importance of partnerships for the project. “We acknowledge the importance we place on small business and how it impacts everything we do. We can only grow with relationships and participation.”

GOAA is undergoing a massive capital expansion and redevelopment campaign that may approximate over three billion dollars between FY 2015 and 2020. For those interested in learning more about doing business with GOAA, please visit www.orlandoairports.net/airport-business.

KMI International is that team of experts. Acting as independent consultants and the project owner’s advocate throughout the entire life of a project, KMI offers non-biased and comprehensive turnkey solutions tailored specifically for your project, minimizing the risk inherent in the construction industry.

A clear baseline of project costs is imperative for a successful project. KMI provides it, working hand-in-hand with project stakeholders to ensure the project is delivered on-budget.

Time management is critical, therefore, KMI schedulers construct the framework for an effective schedule and monitor it to ensure it is followed by the stakeholders and contractors, keeping the project on-time.  

Operating in the industry under Gold Standards set forth by the Construction Management Association of America (CCMA), KMI’s project management team leads the project from concept to completion. They coordinate with the owner, design team and contractor throughout all phases of the project, identifying and mitigating risk, while maintaining budget, schedule and quality.

If you have a distressed or delinquent project, KMI has the capability and expert troubled project turnaround services that will ensure the project is realigned and put back on track. If your project has become subject to the legal process, KMI has the expertise and resources to provide dispute resolution and/or litigation support services, effectively mediating conflicting interests.  

KMI has successfully managed projects across a broad range of industries including aviation/marine, hospitality, themed entertainment, infrastructure, government and commercial development.
