So let's cover some marketing basics, improve your business and your bottom line.

What is Marketing, Really?

If you are launching a new business and you put up a sign that's advertising.

If you hire a sign twirler to draw attention to your sign, that's promotion.

If the sign twirler's outrageous costume gets picked up by the news that public relations.

If the news article gets posted on Facebook by a customer that's social media.

If the Facebook post is boosted to extend the size of the audience that sees it, that's advertising.

If the Facebook post contains a link to the website to learn more, that's online marketing.

If the website content used keywords that people are searching for, that's search engine marketing.

If all this happened as part of a strategic plan, that's Marketing!

Why is Marketing Strategy Important for Small Business?

Starting tactics without strategy is like building a house without a design.  It is not going to function well.

It like hiring a plumber before you hire an architect.  There are going to be a lot of inefficiencies.

It is the same thing with social media, SEO, or advertising.  Without a plan, there is waste.

With a marketing plan, thing go smoother, ROI improves and we leverage the power of the plan through measurement, improvement, and leverage.
