Marketing is the New Sales. Is Your Marketing Coming up Short?
Your marketing needs to be as effective as your best salesperson.
Finding the time to build and manage a marketing team and outside resources simultaneously can be a challenge.
However, it's essential for ensuring your growth goals are consistently hit.
To do that, you must ensure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goal.
This means having regular check-ins and meetings to discuss goals, progress, roadblocks, and successes.
- Make sure that everyone understands your growth vision for the company and how their work fits into that big picture.
- You must fully understand your target audience, their problems, how they communicate, where to reach them, and how to state your competitive advantage.
- You need someone to constantly monitor your online ratings to ensure rapid responses to negative reviews and the encouragement of positive ones.
- You need to develop a referral system and a retention system. This includes having a way to train new employees on the various marketing technologies you're using.
- You have to make sure everyone on your team (including agencies and outside vendors) is executing effectively. This means setting clear priorities and expectations, and holding people accountable to results.
- You have to make sure you're providing the resources and support your team needs to do their jobs well.
It's no wonder you're overwhelmed.
What if marketing is not your strong suit? Maybe you don't have time to create a comprehensive marketing strategy or ensure everyone understands their role and the tactics needed to make it a success.
Who is going to document your Standard Operating Procedures and make sure the team is following them?
What if they don't know which metrics to monitor or how to modify tactics based on those metrics?
You might've come to the conclusion that an expert is needed to head your company's marketing team in order to achieve growth goals.
However, what if you don't have the time or budget to fill this position?
Don't worry - there are ways to get the executive level leadership you need without blowing your marketing budget in.
In no time, you'll have your marketing team energized, focused, and crushing your revenue and client growth goals.
