Business hygiene is just like personal hygiene. If you don’t follow basic personal hygiene routines, chances are you will stink, and the same goes for your marketing efforts.
Smart businesses know that a big part of their marketing strategy should be digital. Consumers and businesses are constantly online, with almost 8 in 10 people using social media and over a third of us checking it more than five times a day. With our brain processing an abundance of information daily, our mental filters are on overdrive. As marketers, we need to tackle the problem of how we get our posts to remain in the minds of our audience? Marketing strategy is key, however, that is easier said than done. Marketing consultants offer great insight into strategies and tools to help your business achieve a tailored solution.
Marketing Eye is fine-tuning our 2018/19 marketing strategy for Australia, ensuring that we don't just focus on Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Townsville, but also other States in Australia with a firm goal of opening offices in Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and New Zealand.
We all need a career change here and there – but what we need is to find the role that’s exciting, has endless possibilities and keeps us on our toes!
Recently, one such technology asked for Marketing Eye's competitors, and did an analysis on where they sit from a digital perspective compared to Marketing Eye Atlanta. It was fascinating. Our company is a mere 4 years old in the US, and in year one, we realised that we outperformed all our competitors on Google listings/rankings and all areas of social media. It was something we were very proud of, as we don't spend all day pushing this medium, but a bit over 30 minutes in total including writing this blog.
It's hard running a business, and even harder to manage the fact that many entrepreneurs and CEO's want everything 'yesterday' and are impatient by nature. That same impatience often makes them very success, as does their attention to detail, but when it comes marketing, unless you have an unlimited budget, it is impossible to be an overnight success.
As an owner of an agency, I know this thought process too well.
It takes a good 20 to 40 hours minimum to write a marketing strategy, and that is after research and a 4-hour workshop. To expect that to be finished overnight in itself is impossible and would be only at the determent of the client. No-one is that good, that innovative and creative to put their knowledge into a strategy that is campaign driven to drive leads. No-one. We could put 20 people on the one strategy and it still would not be right after a week - and that is fact.
I come up with my best ideas away from the office. Not sitting at my desk under pressure.
