The two most important things for business start-ups are finance and marketing. Why then do so many business start-ups assume they can muddle through cobbling together ideas themselves rather than seeking advice from an expert, someone who has been there and done it. An effective marketing strategy can mean the difference between success and failure and is an imperative for business start-ups. Don’t be kidded into thinking that it’s all about social media and digital. Marketing for business start-ups should be a mix of new and traditional channels. There is no one size fits all and I don’t offer an off the shelf marketing for business start-ups package. What I will do is work with you to create a marketing strategy and plan that is tailor made to your business and your budget.
In my experience everybody thinks they can do marketing, you create a web site telling people what you are selling, print a few business cards and the customers will come, right! Wrong. One of the fundamentals of marketing for business start-ups is understanding how your potential customers think, act and behave, and then developing a strategy to reach them. Don’t assume that because you use social media you know how to use it to market your business. Creating a dialogue with your customers that is engaging and interesting will ensure they listen to what you have to say. The world of marketing and media is constantly changing and evolving and it’s important to stay up to date. The rise of digital and social media does mean that quite literally the world is at your fingertips. However, like most things, just because it’s there doesn’t mean you have to use it. As a small business you will have a limited marketing budget and you need to use it wisely.
