Everything within your business plan requires re-evaluation – and that includes your marketing strategy. Trends are changing at a fast pace, especially in these times we are in. Setting up routine times to take a look at how your marketing strategy is performing and pinpointing your areas of opportunity is something that must be done if you are planning on being in the game. Don’t get left in the dust by your competitors and their constant marketing evolution. Make sure you are always a step ahead with this plan.
Understand Your Strengths & Weaknesses
So maybe you know what needs to be done, but your challenge lies in how exactly you plan on getting these things accomplished. One of the first steps you are going to take is mapping out the strengths and weaknesses in your previous marketing experience. Where have your campaigns excelled, and where have they fallen short? Making mistakes or miscalculations is part of the game, but you don’t want to make the same mistake twice – that’s why it’s important to stay on top of your marketing strategy.
So what could your strengths and weaknesses look like? Obviously it will vary for each business, but you can look for things like:
- How is your customer service? Is it personal and flexible?
- Know how you stand apart. Does your audience know what puts your above the rest?
- Financial resources – are you spending enough in your ads, marketing management, etc. and are you able to invest more?
- Reputation – how do your customers view your business? How do potential customers view you? How is it addressed through your marketing?
- Competitor Research – have you been keeping tabs on your competition and what they are doing with their marketing?
- Aesthetics – how is your marketing actually looking? Is it fresh and modern? Or… could someone think that you still use MS Paint?
Make a New Plan
Whatever it is that you are doing wrong, you can fix it. Sit down with your marketing team, or marketing manager and start addressing the areas that you need to improve upon (there will always be something), and get excited about the areas that are going strong (for now). Don’t be afraid to take risks in your marketing and try concepts that are new to your business or to your industry in marketing overall. What’s the worst that could happen? It fails? Well good. That just means that you can cross that off the list… for now.
Keep Your Eyes Open
Make it a habit to keep an eye on what other people are doing in their marketing. Businesses in your industry and even those in entirely different spaces. Keep notes somewhere that’s easily accessible – most likely your phone. You never know when something will strike you as a new usable concept for your marketing, and you want to be sure to always have that conversation with your marketing manager. Why? Because “teamwork makes the dream work”.
