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.

Executive Connection Member Profile - KMI International

It’s one thing to have a construction company build a project for you. It’s an entirely different ballgame when you also hire a team of experts to look out for your best interests, a team who will closely monitor every step of the project, protecting your investment.

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.

Looking for New Engagement Opportunities? Attend a Ribbon Cutting Celebration.
 

Many people think of a chamber when they want to host a grand opening or ribbon cutting, but did you know that attending another companies' ribbon cutting celebration is an added perk of your chamber membership?

As a member of the Orlando Regional Chamber, you are invited to attend any of the upcoming ribbon cutting celebrations listed in Every Monday and on social media.

What is a ribbon cutting celebration?  A ribbon cutting celebration can be a great way to mark the opening of a business or even a milestone, such as a founding anniversary. It provides business owners an opportunity to celebrate with their employees, friends, family as well as other businesses in the area.

Why should you attend?

  • Networking: Ribbon cutting celebrations are a great way to meet the owners of a new company, as well as others who may be doing business with them. Attending may help you build a relationship. When a new business owner needs a product or service, attending a ribbon cutting may help them think of you first.

  • Learn about new business and show your support: Attending allows you to experience what is new. You will be among the first to see the business first hand. This will allow you to learn what's been happening, including future trends, challenges and solutions.

  • Serve as a resource: Many new business owners, especially those new to the area, may have a lot of questions. Attending a ribbon cutting celebration can enable you to become an invaluable resource to other business owners.

  • Enjoy free refreshments and other perks: Ribbon cuttings are free to attend. Many include giveaways or product discounts. Sometimes the events feature entertainment or demonstrations, food and refreshments.

  • Feel good: Attending a ribbon cutting means celebrating an opening or milestone. A new business means someone is investing in our region, and in most instances, creating jobs. Expect to leave the event with good energy and excitement for the future.

Check the "Upcoming Ribbon Cutting Celebration" section of Every Monday each week for dates and locations. For more information on ribbon cuttings or to schedule your own, call your Chamber membership representative or the Chamber at 407.425.1234.

Executive Connection Member Profile - eyebobs

Let everyone else look like everyone else.

eyebobs knows you’ve got that spark.That little something extra.The company is ready to help you let it out with daring, distinctive eyewear that turns up the ‘WOW.’ Because glasses should make a statement – even if yours requires a few extra exclamation points (or artfully placed swear words).

Seeing is believing for Florida frame fanatics now that eyebobs newest retail store, its third nationwide, has opened in The Florida Mall. Featuring prescription eyewear, reading glasses, sunglasses and a healthy dose of attitude.This destination retail experience will showcase the expansive eyewear offering that savvy shoppers have been finding online and in hip independent retailers for years.

eyebobs was founded on the radical notion that shopping for glasses should be fun. In 2001, Julie Allinson found herself on the other side of 40 and suddenly unable to read the fine print. With the help of her optician friend and future design collaborator, Jason Engelman, she set out to find the perfect pair of reading glasses. After carefully selecting her ideal frames, the final total left Allinson with the type of sticker shock usually associated with a luxury sports car purchase or hotel mini-bar tab. When she inquired about a more reasonably priced alternative, she was directed to the sad rack of cheaters at the local drugstore. The memory of what she saw there haunts her to this day.

There it was, her ‘a ha' moment. If what she was looking for didn’t exist, then she would just have to make it. Allinson set to work with a singular vision: to create a line of distinctive, high-quality eyewear for people like her, the irreverent and slightly jaded. 

That vision quickly became an all-consuming passion. As time went by, the smart, sarcastic and style-conscious got hooked on eyebobs. They loved the luxurious materials, outstanding craftsmanship and unique style paired with clever, often hilarious, branding. Frame names include such hits as Not Tonight, Cheap Therapy and Board Stiff (as well as some racier picks we won’t name here). Savvy fans even started to “hack their bobs” by putting prescription lenses in eyebobs frames. In response to this growing demand, eyebobs launched their first ever prescription line in 2017.

This full offering of eyewear is ready and waiting for you in eyebobs’ new location at The Florida Mall. Your shopping experience is guided by their Bobtender℠ Stylists who employ a fresh, fun, “no b.s.” approach to personal styling. They feel more like a trusted confidant than a sales person, so you’ll leave feeling utterly amazing and 100 percent confident you’re putting your best frame forward.
