1. Don't Miss Your Audience: Navigate the Right Waters
Seems like a breeze, right? But it's the subtle currents that often elude us. Picture Marketing as a captivating conversation and your product or service as the solution to someone's problem. It's elementary—talk to the right people. No matter how dazzling your glamor girl makeup commercial is, it won't sell to a male audience. Nail your audience, and you've set sail in the right direction.
2. Being One-dimensional: Conquer Channels Like a Pro!
A sea of choices! At the very least you need to be the Master Commander of one channel, one way of reaching your audience, but if you stop there you're missing out! Your customers are surfing multiple channels, and so is your competition. Don't be the lone sailor; be where your audience is. With 10,000 ads bombarding the average consumer daily, you want to be the lighthouse, visible on more than one channel.
3. Not Following Up: Close the Loop. Follow-ups Matter!
Picture your strategy as a funnel, gently guiding your audience closer to a purchase. One touch might not cut it—consider your buying cycle. Follow up, and don't leave your story half-told. Initiating a conversation is just the prologue; closing the loop ensures a compelling ending.
4. Promotion Without a Process: Synced Sales and Marketing Are a Winning Symphony!
Running a campaign that floods your store with traffic is fantastic, but imagine your sales team unprepared for the storm. Disaster! Align your sales with your marketing; it's not just about the present sale but preserving credibility for future ones. Promotion without process equals missed opportunities.
5. Fear of Testing: Explore, Test, and Conquer!
Fear not the uncharted waters. While you shouldn't gamble your entire budget, always test the waters with new ideas, audience segments, and channels. Maximize what works, but keep an eye out for new ways to captivate potential customers. Marketing is a thrilling adventure—stay on the lookout for uncharted territories, and success will be your compass.
