Strategy Before Tactics - That's The Foundation Of Our System
Companies often come to us looking for help with tactical things like "Can you fix my website?" or "Do you do Google Ads?".
These tactics might be the right thing to do and produce positive ROI, but what is really needed is a marketing strategy first.
For example, we see things like this a lot on the side of many home services businesses trucks..."We specialise in Domestic and Commercial", that's not specialising at all.
Without a strategy, it's easy to chase after the next tactic someone calls you about...SEO this quarter, Adwords the next, let's try Facebook marketing. It likely means you are wasting money and getting mad with suppliers who let you down. Let me turn it around:
- Assume for a moment you are getting married soon. You need a photographer. Who are you going to choose? A photographer or a specialist wedding photographer?
- Assume you own a 4WD and you want to start taking it off road through the outback. Are you going to your local garage for the set up and trip preparation or a 4WD specialist?
Marketing is done in a competitive environment and that means you need to take time to consider three main things:
- Who is your ideal customer and what is the type of work you want?
- What truly makes your business attractive to that customer? How are you valuable to your customer?
- Can you answer the question "Why should I choose to use your business over and above all the other options that are available to me?"
Once you get clear on that, marketing gets much more effective and profitable.
If you having problems with getting know, getting customers, keeping customers and maintaining margins? That's likely because you are doing tactical marketing without a strategy.
That's why we work on the strategy first and tactics second. It's part of getting the right focus so your business goes in the right direction all the time
