Whether you’re just starting your firm or you’ve been in business for years, you have a good idea of the various small business marketing strategy tasks that you should be doing. You probably have a web site and are doing some advertising, and spend time on the phone talking with prospects. Each week you and your staff work hard trying to promote your firm.
All of these marketing activities can keep you busy, and take time and money. But if you’re not careful, these small business marketing activities will limit your growth or worse yet, put you in the poor house.
When I first talked with Judy in Chicago, her business was about to close. Despite having many satisfied clients, an active advertising campaign and a web site, she wasn’t developing a steady stream of new or repeat clients. Each week her spending on marketing was costing her heavily and her income wasn’t keeping up.
Judy knew that she needed to bring in more clients but her conclusion was that advertising and web sites don’t work, at least not for her business. She was busy with her marketing but it wasn’t working to grow her business.
Is your small business marketing strategy providing you with a steady stream of new clients and customers?
If you’re not attracting as many clients and customers as you’d like, there is a good chance that you’re busy with marketing but not marketing to grow your business. What’s the difference?
One is focused on day-to-day activities and separate marketing tools, such as advertising or a web site. The other is based on a business building strategy that helps you generate more leads and clients each month and each year.
Wouldn’t you rather be marketing to a larger and larger group of prospects each month?
