Marketing Rules To Live By

What’s the secret to good marketing? There really isn’t any one answer. Good marketing is the result of various, well implemented marketing strategies, so there’s a lot of thought that should go into your marketing strategies. Here are a few rules to go by.

Capture attention

You can have the greatest product in the world, but if you can’t capture your audience’s attention, no one’s going to know that. Market in ways that get your audience interested. Let them know what your product is and why they need it, then seal the deal with an offer they can’t refuse.

Tell them what they want to here

Different customers need to be marketed to differently. Practical customers want to hear a logical, methodical pitch. Emotional customers don’t like to be rushed and hate aggressive marketing, just like customers who are more social.

Stay relevant to your customers

Think about how you can add value with your product to each and every customer. How can you get them interested in what you’re selling? If you can figure this out, you can market effectively

Focus on profits

Marketing is definitely important in getting your product out there, but it won’t do all the legwork for you. If you have a great product, it should be able to speak for itself without having a bunch of fancy marketing done. Focus on getting people to buy your product with your marketing, not coming up with some elaborate marketing scheme.

Engage with social media

Social media is incredibly important for marketing purposes. Post often to your social media channels and work on developing a dedicated audience.

Don’t overcomplicate things

Analytics are important, so get a good grasp of what works for your bottom line and what doesn’t when it comes to marketing. In the efforts to up your marketing game, the last thing you want to do is to stop doing something that’s already working. Base all of your marketing decisions on facts and numbers, not feelings and speculation.
