Marketing Strategy + Promoting my Business: Where to Start?

How important is it for me to have a marketing strategy to promote my business? Where do I even start with that? Should I hire that out?

These are questions every entrepreneur has, or should, ask themselves. A marketing strategy itself is so important; it’s basically the roadmap on how you plan to keep up with ever-changing marketing techniques, and how you ensure that you’re being as effective as you can be with your messaging. It’s how you promote your products or services that differentiates you from your competition.

An overall strategy is also important to have when you’re developing your promotional plan, because it allows you to identify targets and set measurable goals. Without these targets and goals, your business spends precious time chasing targets that don’t make sense.

When thinking about promoting your business, it should always be in the context of your larger marketing strategy. The most important step you can take in promoting your business is to finetune your brand and your offering. Define the core values of your brand. Do they align with what your prospective customers find important?

After you’ve done the general defining of your brand, a logical place to look for more nuanced guidance is from a strategic marketing company.
