Saratoga Bar’s main focus – or mission – is to plant new butts on your barstools and provide new fans for your music. Notice we use the word “new” – which can also equate to “more”. We are concentrated on helping Saratoga visitors and tourists find your bar or band. We’ve also been building entertainment websites since 2004 – so we got that goin’ on..
You should have a Facebook page. But a Facebook page is a place to update customers and fans that already know who you are. Saratoga is a very popular place to visit. Whether it be someone from Albany looking for a night out, a family spending their vacation here for a week, or a businessperson staying the weekend for a convention at the City Center.
When they are unfamiliar with Saratoga and are looking for a night out, they are highly likely to start typing “saratoga bars” into the Google search bar. Be it at home on their desktop, in their hotel room with their laptop or on the road with their mobile device.
It is only common sense. We own that niche.
When someone types “saratoga bars” into the Bing search bar, they are going to see Saratoga Bars on the first page. Statistically, most people do not search past the first page. Others can promise you new customers and blah, blah, blah. Only Saratoga Bars can deliver the most new customers or music lovers. Once they click on SaratogaBars.com they will find your bar and/or your band.
It’s that simple.
As a band, musician or nightclub owner, you are continuously being bombarded with companies vying for your hard earned advertising dollars. We feel strongly that you will get the most bang for your buck with SaratogaBars.com. Contact us for advertising.
And another thing.
Like we said at the beginning, social media is fine but, you should have a website. Bill Gates once famously said, “If your business is not on the Internet, then your business will be out of business.”
A recent survey shows that new small business start-ups who have an online presence are over 30% more likely to stay in business beyond 3 years, compared to company’s without a website. If you have the time, build one yourself. If you have the money, have a website built by a professional. It doesn’t have to be that costly. But do yourself a favor and just get yourself a website. It tells your audience who you are and what you can offer so much better than a Facebook page. And it has your own personal URL – Example: MyWebsite.com – not www.Facebook.com/my-bar-or-band-name-if-available-32457765447755?fref=nf – try putting that address on your business card.
I’m writing this on New Year’s Eve 2015 so, may you have a joyous, peaceful, prosperous and Happy New Year.
Bring it on 2016 !
