I was reading an interesting article in Forbes the other day and thought you might enjoy the concepts imparted.
Every business has to market their products and services and the way you market your business can mean the difference between failure and success. If done right, you can increase revenue, attract new customers, and retain your current customers. If done wrong, you’ll be left screaming, “Ugh, I’ve made a huge mistake!” and trying to pick up all the pieces.
The article in Forbes outlined what marketing mistakes you need to avoid at all costs and I thought you might be interested to read their comments. If you want to avoid some of the biggest marketing blunders of all time, you have to know what they are and how to steer clear of them. Here are seven marketing faux pas you need to watch out for in your business.
I reproduce them all seven over a 7 week period, so keep coming back to see the next one.
1. Spending Too Little Time On Marketing
How much time are you spending on your marketing efforts per week? Some of you might say a couple of hours. Others might say diddly-squat. Spending too little time on marketing can spell doom for your small business.
If you want to avoid this faux pas, start devoting more time to your marketing efforts. Just like with anything else in life, you have to work hard at marketing if you want to see results.
Set aside more time to build, implement, and analyse your marketing campaigns. Use that entrepreneur determination I know you have in you to boost your marketing efforts and spend more time marketing your business.
