We all know that marketing is tough. You have to do it the right way to reach the right people and say the correct thing at the perfect time. We all want to do it right, but it is really hard. There are many obstacles in marketing, but today we want to touch on three.
As long as your phone is actually plugged in, what are other obstacles in getting your phones to ring with valuable leads?
Knowing What To Do
Actually knowing how to generate leads is a huge obstacle in marketing. According to the 2017 State of Inbound Report, the number one concern marketers have is generating enough leads. These leads are the future sales and success of your business. When there is not an effective strategy in place for finding and capturing leads, companies often target the wrong leads or completely miss getting them.
Leave the challenge of knowing what to do and finding the quality leads up to us so you can focus on the other aspects of your business.We have an effective strategy and our lead generation campaigns are designed to target specific and various service types. We will supply daily fresh leads directly to your doorstep!
As a business you’re most likely aware of not only every dollar, but of every penny that comes and goes through your business, with an emphasis on the ones that go! There are always genuine concerns when it comes to the budget and many late nights are spent trying to figure out where each dollar is best used.
A great way to manage the expenses of marketing is to have a plan that will provide the best results, and then stick with that plan. Many times people get caught up on the ‘next big idea’ and quickly change their marketing strategy to try something different. They spend a lot of money on the next thing, but never really end up with anything. Remember your priorities and do your best to stay on track.
There is never enough time to do it all. At the end of the day, sometimes we just wish there were a few more hours to get things done (or catch up on sleep!). You have to work your business, but you’re most likely the one to deal with everything else too. Your role probably includes managing all the technical difficulties, keeping up with changes in social media and technology, triaging customer and employee questions and concerns, and the list goes on. Not only that, but you probably have a life outside of work that requires time as well.
Delegate delegate delegate. I’m sure you have heard that before! That is great advice, but better advice might be: Train and Delegate. It is one thing to delegate responsibilities to those who you work with, but it is another to be able to trust that they know what to do and will do it right. Learn to train people on what to do and the way you want it done. Not only will your workload be lightened, but each responsibility will have someone’s focused attention and be done the way you intended it to be done.
There are many options and resources to help make your business successful even with obstacles that stand in the way. Like Zig Ziglar said, “When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.”. We can help you get there! We know what to do and how to do it well, we can be your marketing strategy and help take some of the responsibility so as a business owner you have time to focus on the other aspects of your business.
