The ongoing turbulence in the credit, consumer and property markets continues to throw a lot of entrepreneurs, start-ups and marketers off their game. And if you’re one of them, I bet you’ll be surprised by what I’m about to say: Market more and panic less.
Whaddya mean you don’t have time for marketing?!! You DO run a business – and want to keep it that way – don’t you? Then marketing is simply not negotiable. It is a MUST if you wish to survive in business. No matter how insignificant it seems, by doing some marketing every day I am able to keep in front of my current and potential clients. And the ‘smarter’ I market my products and services, the better my hold on my own market share.
You need to do the same. After all, economic downturns (which, by the way, always end in an upturn) bring an entirely new meaning to the term ‘survival of the fittest’. But I’m here to tell you that YOU DO indeed have the power to create business . . . IF your focus is in the right place and that means using SMARTER marketing to get more sales, regardless of what the economy is doing, or how much of a time-debt you have.
It boils down to this: if you don’t, can’t or won’t market your products or services, then your business will fail. And that goes for ANY business in ANY economy. However, if you continue to market perhaps more aggressively but certainly more smartly than ever before then your business will have a better chance of survival than most.
