The graphic above may bring back some memories for those of us with some years behind us. This can also apply to our business and marketing efforts. Does this strike any memories for you? “Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with You”.
Are you stuck in the middle of all the marketing noise?
Business owners are under attack, are you stuck in the middle of all the marketing noise?
How do you manage growth: Run your business, set up all your search engine marketing, track results, and get the most bang for all your efforts?
Keeping existing customers coming back, and balancing cost and benefits that work for the long-term. Requires a great deal of time and effort. Business owners are already stretched to the limits.
Imagine having your own marketing automation system that ties it all together. Imagine knowing exactly which customers or prospects are ready to buy now. A good search engine marketing strategy can help.
Lets face it...
Traditional marketing methods no longer work! Yellow page ads, newspaper ads, paper coupons, and TV commercials are not only expensive… they just don’t work as well as they used to!
To grow your business and beat your competition, you need to be creative in your marketing efforts. Establish a solid foundation where you can be found where ever your customers happen to be.
A good business marketing strategy should include a website where it is easy for prospects to contact you and also get on your mailing list.
Your site should be view-able on all devices from computers to smart phones, a mobile optimized site is a must with the rise of smart phones.
Ditch the old advertising ways that are expensive and use newer, less expensive, and far more effective marketing strategies.
Companies that set up search engine optimized marketing systems are able to beat their competition with far less effort. More freedom for the business owner? Absolutely.
Stop the business madness
Every step you take in business should be to grow, but also strive to free up more time for you!
None of us ever starts a business to work all the time, I sure as hell didn’t, did you? Setting up search engine optimization systems that take you out of the day to day work is pure gold to your sanity.
Strive for a solid SEO foundation that sets the stage for growth even when you are on vacation. Track your marketing, automate as many processes as possible, pass tasks on to your team or an external SEO expert.
Simple on the surface, yet too many business owners attempt to do it all and their business suffers from being stretched in too many directions.
Part of any business foundation is your brand. Optimizing your site for search engines allows you to control your branding and marketing efforts. Your business survival depends on your ability to be found by prospects and customers.
