We have been discussing how Real Marketing affects Organic Growth, so now it is time to cover Branding. Are each of your profiles easily recognizable? When you visit your networks do you ever check to see what it looks like to the viewers? You should. It will give you a very real look at what they are seeing. Granted most of the people that come to you have an idea of where they are heading but not always and not if you are striving for Organic Growth.
Finding The Balance Between
Marketing And Everything Else
As many know one of the hardest parts to marketing is finding the time to do it. Sure we use programs like Social Pilot and Hootsuite to help us schedule post and share from different sites, but that is only a part of the work involved. We still have to be on the networks to like and share, interact with our followers and engage the users. This means we have to find a balance between everything else we do and marketing.
Have you set yourself up to fail?
Have you scheduled yourself so thin that you cannot maintain all the different things you have put on your schedule? Probably. What happens when you take time off or get sick? Do you find that your different networks and sites show a drop due to it? When you take a vacation you find a sitter for your pets, you make sure that you ask neighbors to keep an eye on your home. So why not hire or ask someone to watch over your networks? Either hire someone/company or get a buddy system for your social networks.
What WILL You Commit To?
Have you filled out your own daily list of things that you have to get done? Does that list include Have to do’s, Want to do’s, and Must Do’s? In order to be successful at anything and especially marketing, you have to know what your day looks like so you can plan your marketing time each week. Once you know these items then you can create your Commit To list. These items will be the list that you are willing to do each week to be successful in your chosen career.
Let’s assume you have been active on your social networks. You have been not only posting but liking and sharing others’ post. You have taken the time to friend new people in the hopes that they will like you back. Yet, you have noticed they have not, what then? Do you remove them? Do you ignore it and move on, or do you do something different?
