Moving Beyond Marketing Excuses

August 19, 2010 No Comments
You invest in continuing education to keep your skills at their best, isn’t it time to invest in your business and its future through marketing.

#1 – “I bought vendor services with marketing thrown in”

Nothings free, it’s better to hire a professional. Marketing is the conscious habit that leads your business into a healthy future, both with your customer base and revenues.

#2 – “It’s too expensive”

It actually costs you more not to market. By failing to communicate with your current and potential customers, you run the risk of losing them to companies that catch and keep their attention. With marketing, you are in control of your future.

#3 – “I will get too busy”

What if you have 5 new calls a day? Or too many customers? You will have choices: you can be more selective, raise salaries, purchase new equipment, raise rates and/or limit office hours.

#4 – “I don’t have enough time to do the marketing”

You do not have to do it all. Hiring a marketing expert will actually leave you with more time to focus on your craft, advance your skills and expand your business.

#5 – “I don’t know what to say”

People hear, read and see what we communicate. With a professional identity, consistent marketing and website, current and potential customers will have increased confidence in the services you provide.
