How to coach marketers to be more successful

If you have ever hired a marketer before, you would know that mostly, they are a different breed. Unlike their sales counterparts, they have less bravo, and as such, need a different approach. Having worked with hundreds of marketers over the years, and more recently, spending time coaching marketing professional in corporations in Australia and the US, I can say firsthand, that coaching marketers to be more successful is all about process.
With a new year beginning, many companies are reevaluating their marketing function within their business, and based on the resources available, are setting expectations for their marketing resources.

How marketers expect to have a performance review

A performance review often comes with a lot of trepidation, from both parties. When you put marketing, or marketers into the equation, that trepidation is two-fold and often is met with a sense of expectation versus reality and performance reviews can lead to marketers either being motivated to 'do more and be more' or leaving the company.
With an abundance of entrepreneurs entering the market, priming themselves for disruption and tackling the incumberants, entrepreneurs the world over are being forced, albeit at times relucantly to adapt to change, and adopt a new way of thinking.
If you've been told that based on Myers Briggs you have this or that type of personality, you may think that you have derived at an answer to why you are the way you are. After all, many entrepreneurs fall under an A-Type personality profile or at least that's what many of us have thought. A little birdy gave me an insight into the brilliance that is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I am absolutely compelled to share.

The best go-to-market strategy examples

Go-to-market strategies that are well thought through, strategic by nature and research backed have a higher likelihood of success than those that rely on adhoc marketing tactics or old methodologies. Having a good example of a go to market strategy will ensure that you learn from other companies successes and failures, while endeavouring to develop a go-to-market strategy that is aligned to your product launch goals.

How to set marketing goals and keep them

There is not a business on the planet that hasn't thought about setting marketing goals for 2021, and at least given thought to how they are going to keep them. Most companies spend November and December bringing together key stakeholders in a business to discuss the next years business, sales and marketing goals. They do this in the form of a series of workshops, and what's really great about this, is even if you have a small business, a mini-workshop is invaluable for brainstorming how your business can do better in the year ahead.

How to stick to your New Years resolution

A change in a calendar year is significant for many people around the world, mostly because it allows us to reflect on our life, personal and professional goals and our dreams.

Quite often, we make the same new years resolutions as we may have done the year before, simply because we didn't commit to the our goals in the way we had hoped. However, there is good news for those who don't quite make good on their New Years Resolutions as you are more likely to achieve it when it becomes a goal that is repetitive.

A new year - what a relief

As I woke up on January 1, 2021, at 4.59a.m. I could feel myself breathe a sigh of relief. Finally, it is a new day, in a new year, and everything that came before that moment no longer holds me or anyone else down.

Like many, 2020 was my second least favourite year, just marginally behind the year before where I said goodbye to my dog. 

During the year, I struggled. I wasn’t alone, but at times I actually was, both physically and mentally. Like many entrepreneurs, I was challenged with not only my own life, but the lives of those around me.
