Make 2017 your year
With an exciting new year in full swing, it’s an opportune moment to look at your business marketing strategy and explore how you could make the changes needed to have your best business year yet.
What are your objectives?
When it comes to business and marketing goals, our most common client objectives are to increase sales and win and retain new business. So how do we go about achieving these goals for our clients?
Failing to plan is planning to fail
Planning is key and having a clear marketing strategy not only outlines how you are going to develop new business, but ensures your messaging and journey to growth is clearly planned and mapped out.
Who are your customers?
What are their interests? Why do they, would they or should they engage with your business?
Knowledge is power. As we migrate further away from traditional marketing forms and adopt more and more digital marketing tactics, analytics and data are an often under-used resource that is becoming more widely available for us to use and manipulate for business growth. Experience of your target market and regular two-way engagement with your customers will give you invaluable information about your customers.
Targeted market research helps to build a more detailed picture of customer segments and how to make sure your business marketing is targeted rather than wasted across a broad audience.
Make a plan
A marketing strategy helps you to set marketing goals, budgets, structure, deadlines, show what works (as well as what doesn’t) and how you can effectively target and engage with your customers.
As with any plan, progress should be regularly measured and reviewed to ensure best ROI for your business efforts, so you can set new targets as your market changes. A marketing strategy is a valuable framework not just for now, but for your future business success too. Stuck on where to start?
