How to Promote Your Entry and Get More Votes

Almost a month has passed form the launch of the voting process for the 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. Many of you already know that it takes some effort to get people’s support all the time. The voting process will help you understand why marketing is an integral component of the entrepreneurial design. Your idea or project might be great and highly beneficial to many people, but you need to get them to notice your service or product.

Getting started as a young entrepreneur is an exciting and challenging endeavor. Even if young people lack experience and knowledge, they have readiness and motivation to push through obstacles. On the other hand, it can be such an exciting opportunity for adults who didn’t have the opportunity to get involved with entrepreneurship in their younger years.
“You’ve got to be crazy if you want to be an entrepreneur: you’ll have to work 12 to 14 hours a day, there will be no vacations in the near future, and you’ll have little or no private life anymore,” Guenter Faltin says on his book Brains versus Capital.
When talking about successful startups and good entrepreneurial ideas, innovation can be applied both in emerging and existing industries. In other words, everywhere where there’s an opportunity for growth and development.
At the initial stage, the young entrepreneur starts to feel like a Jack of all trades by switching into different roles from bookkeeping to marketing. You’ll notice how useful this experience is going to be when you make the first sales of your product or service.

Back to the competition. When you start promoting your idea or project for votes make sure to:

  • Explain how it is or will benefit your community or a specific category
  • Highlight what frustrating problems you are trying to solve and how you are doing it
  • Use emotions to make the audience notice, share, and vote for you
  • No matter what medium you’re using, create a human voice for your product/service
  • Talk about the importance of sustainable entrepreneurship and how it could make the world a better place

Even though not everyone has equal access to an internet connection, there are traditional mediums that are still on-trend.
Print, daily papers, magazines, radio shows, podcasts, television, direct mail, telephone, and SMS are a good option if they have an audience and are cost-effective.
Word-of-mouth marketing. It works for big brands, it will work for you too.

When promoting an idea or project, or everything, people reach out to relatives, friends, people at the school or university, local clubs, organizations. Social media will help you get more audience. Start by identifying the most popular social media sites in your region.
According to the Global Digital Report 2020 the number of
Internet users worldwide in 2020 is 4.5 billion
Social media users in 2020 are 3.8 billion
Mobile phone users in 2020 are 5.19 billion

The same survey confirms that the most popular social media around the world based on the number of users are:

  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • WhatsApp
  • Messenger
  • WeChat
  • Instagram
  • Tik Tok
  • QQ
  • QZone
  • Sina Weibo
  • Reddit
  • Snapchat
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • Kuaishou

Next step. Identify what is the best type of content for each of these channels. Most people use social media for fun and relaxing. They chat with friends, look for photos, videos, and interesting content.

  • You can create a voice with videos and images
  • Cross-post across channels,
  • Use your hashtags
  • Appeal to influencers by quoting them on your promotions
  • Organize contests and giveaways
  • Share content from your friends
  • Ask for input
  • Share helpful information
  • Don’t over-post
  • Schedule social media posts in advance

  23. Talk about the importance of sustainable entrepreneurship and how it could make the world a better place…
    I want to say few vital point based on what I learnt during the SEC Course in How to be a successful entrepreneur Part 2…

    l learned that Environmental sustainability is to conserve natural resources and to develop alternate source of power.

    Also Economic sustainability refers to practices that support long term economic growth without negatively impacting social, environmental, and cultural aspects of the community

    Finally, Social sustainability encompasses the impact of cooperation’s on people and society.

    I urges and motivate all 2020 contestants to do their on-line training and BvC and SEC courses respectively.

  24. “YES WE CAN”, BaraCk OBAMA.

    “Getting started as a young entrepreneur is an exciting and challenging endeavor. Even if young people lack experience and knowledge, they have readiness and motivation to push through obstacles”.

    Having been nearly everywhere in the world, had the COVID-19 not erupted, the next destination would have been the USA to see what it takes to be reputed as a developed country.

    Thank you all.

  43. Talk about the importance of sustainable entrepreneurship and how it could make the world a better place

    Considering the question above i think today being vier Juli 2020, I want to educate others campus members and entrepreneurship team what I learned from How to be a sustainable entrepreneur part 1.

    1. What does the Brundtland Commission’s report in 1987 say?

    I learned that “Sustainable development is development that means the need of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

    This is an amazing article and a good and timely reminder of what is expected of campus members. Thank you campus administrator for sharing

  45. As a small business owner or startup founder that wants to give a boost to sales, you may now the saying that people love to buy, but don’t like to be sold. Just compare the way how you feel when you get a cold call (telemarketing or door-to-door salesmen) about a product and when you see that product used by someone you follow on social media. In the second case you may be thinking ‘I didn’t know I wanted that’.

  46. Your experience as a customer and your business intuition can help you find the right ways to set up a compelling offer for potential customers. On the other hand, as a small business owner, you might be doing a little of everything, from finance to marketing. Therefore, these steps might help you find the most practical way to increase your sales.

  47. The online training consists of two courses. The Brains versus Capital course is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Prof. Günter Faltin and supports entrepreneurs (in the making) to further develop their ideas and projects. The Sustainable Entrepreneurship course focuses on the topic of sustainability and shows how entrepreneurs establish and run sustainable companies.

  48. We recommend that you do the Brains versus Capital course first, followed by the Sustainable Entrepreneurship course.

  49. Our new Digital 2020 reports – published in partnership with We Are Social and Hootsuite – show that digital, mobile, and social media have become an indispensable part of everyday life for people all over the world.

    More than 4.5 billion people are using the internet at the start of 2020, while social media users have passed the 3.8 billion mark. Nearly 60 percent of the world’s population is already online, and the latest trends suggest that more than half of the world’s total population will use social media by the middle of this year.

  50. Some important challenges remain, however, and there’s still work to do to ensure that everyone around the world has fair and equal access to lif

  51. Most people use social media for fun and relaxing. They chat with friends, look for photos, videos, and interesting content. But as an entrepreneur, your brain should tell you that social media is beyond that because with it, every user can learn positive things from you and also be aware that you have a start-up. Moreover, social media is a site where you can discover ideas, find and consult professionals and expertise and patronize people to purchase your products.

  52. To gregoryanayochukwu’s comment, l say “yes” because of the essence of social media he has stated there, but even though not everyone has equal access to an internet connection, there are traditional mediums that are still on-trend.
    Print, daily papers, magazines, radio shows, podcasts, television, direct mail, telephone, and SMS are a good option if they have an audience and are cost-effective.
    Word-of-mouth marketing. It works for big brands, it will work for you too.
    That is innovation, that is going outside the box, that is “brains beat Capital”, that is “entrepreneurship”. I urge you all aspiring entrepreneurs to take heed to it and also get accustomed to it. I believed a word is enough for the wise and entrepreneurship entails wisdom.
