Marketing Support does not mean making New Fliers !
Retail has never been more complicated.
Consumers have access to more information, choice and options than ever before.
You can communicate with your customer via: post, email, radio, sms, local paper, facebook, twitter, online advertising and the list goes on.
Your customer is comparing you to other stores, sites and products from the comfort of their lounge.
It has never been more important to get your Marketing in order and be clear about what your business is and what you offer. In the same way that you call an electrician, computer specialist and take your car to a mechanic, there is help to be had outside your business.
Outsourcing is not something as small business owners we like to do but it is just as vital as having a good accountant do your books and a lawyer do their thing. Business owners don’t have the time to do everything involved in running a successful profitable business – there are many hats to be worn. They should be the conductor of the orchestra – not the player of every instrument.
As with any profession, there are guides and rules to follow which is the backbone of a successful business. But the flair, passion and awareness of customers and what they want is the flesh on the backbone and what ultimately separates the leaders from the imitators!!
