What are the genuine "must haves"?

There’s a lot of noise out there about various web platforms on which furniture retailers “must have a presence.” If you try to do all of them all at once, you’ll go crazy.

Here are what I consider the “must haves” for local businesses who simply want folks to find out about their stores.

  • Up-To-Date Website
  • Facebook Page
  • Yelp Listing
  • Google My Business Listing

I also recommend the above order. Build or refresh your website first. It’s the mothership of all your online marketing.

However, if you’re a startup niche company, you might want to build your Facebook page first. That way you can start building a following with your friends and family and get some word-of-mouth and cash income going quickly.

“But what about Twitter, Houzz, YP.com, Instagram, and LinkedIn?” you ask. Yes, those are all good platforms and good opportunities.

I am simply addressing the essentials for the harried owner who is overwhelmed with all the marketing folks calling and telling him what he “must do now to bring in the sales.”
