Market Smarter | The online course for savvy businesses

Who can benefit from marketing smarter

You are a business owner who is new to marketing or wants to improve. Or you have just started your first job in marketing. Or you are a seasoned marketer looking to sharpen your knowledge and skills. 

Where should you start?

When people hear the word marketing, they often associate it with adverts, leaflets, brochures, videos, social media, websites, mailing lists and so on. 

That's not wrong. These are all related to marketing but they are tactics or they are tools, channels or platforms to help you deliver your marketing.

However they are not where you should start your marketing. 

Strategy first

You need to put the fundamentals in place before you do anything else. Otherwise, how will you know what kind of website is right, whether you need leaflets, a brochure or something else and which social media accounts you should be setting up. What about your messaging? If you choose to do SEO or PPC how would you know you had the right key words? 

Before you even think about tactics and tools and so on you need to:

  1. Know where you're heading
  2. Understand your place in your market - nobody operates in a vacuum
  3. Understand which customers count most to your business - i.e. which ones you should target to help you reach your goals more easily
  4. Understand why those customers should buy from you rather than your competitors
  5. Work out the best way of reaching those customers

Once you have those fundamentals in place THEN you can start thinking about your marketing tactics and the tools you need to use to deploy it. After all you wouldn't build a house before laying the foundations or ice a cake before baking it. So why do that with your marketing?

By landing on this page, you are one step closer to smarter marketing.
