Businesses invest a huge amount of capital on manufacturing, shipping, and research & development but often overlook marketing.
Marketing is at its most powerful when it is integrated. Consolidating your strategy with a cohesive, tailored message can produce stellar, demonstrable results.
To help you understand what’s needed for successful marketing, here’s some tips:
Know your audience
Know who you’re trying to target, whether it’s a new audience or existing customers.
Develop your brand
Develop your branding and stick to it, adding consistency to your content and enabling people to develop brand recognition.
Have a defined strategy
Trying to get more engagement? Work out a way and try it. Trying to get more visits to your website? Start including more links with call to actions and after a month see whether it’s working.
Stick to your plan
If your plan is to post three times a week, make sure you stick to it. Not sticking to a plan will make your analytics a lot harder to analyse.
Give your audience what they want
Do you know from previous experience that your audience reacted well to a certain type of content? Duplicate it. Try and create this content as much as possible as this will be your trophy content.
Listen to the analytics
After a month of trialling your new strategy and plan, look at your analytics, see what worked best and keep creating it. Analytics is the best way to see what’s working, saving time and money.
Once you know what’s working, stick to your plan and keep pushing out content. With time and consistency your following will build up and will pay dividends to your marketing analytics.
