Step up on the scale.
To drop pounds, it’s important to know your starting weight in order to determine success. The same goes for business. The first step to a high-impact marketing campaign is to honestly assess where your business currently stands and how far you need to go in order to reach goals. Evaluate who the company is, what it offers and how it compares to the competition. Also think about how the public perceives your business and what challenges you might have in marketing it.
Determine your workout routine.
Every good fitness regimen needs a plan. Similarly, every good marketing strategy needs a plan of attack, and in today’s challenged economy it is more important than ever to adapt a specific strategy for your marketing.
Work out regularly, and on a schedule.
Exercise has to be done consistently in order to achieve results. The same is true with marketing. Consistency in brand and messaging to the right people, over time, will be your biggest key to success. In order to build a healthy network of clients in today’s downturned economy, your business must apply the same established marketing messages across a multitude of marketing channels.
Hire a personal trainer.
