You can't budget your marketing because if your marketing works then you shouldn't be cutting back on it. If you are not putting in enough money to your marketing then it just won't work well and you will be wasting your money. This can also relate to customers, you need to be able to say you can do a GREAT job, and not be ashamed with your price (even if it is higher than others).

Welcome to Episode 70 of The Marketing Drive with Chris Doelle.

This show applies not only to marketing but to well...anything. You don't always need to go 200% in on everything immediately. You can take things slower and learn things better or just ask a question, find the answer and stop there. You can't be an expert of everything you do.

This show is so named because I record it unscripted and unedited on my commute to work. When an idea pops in my head, I hit record. You get my off-the-cuff take on anything related to marketing your business. Be sure to send your show ideas and questions and I will use them for future shows!

You don't need to be a mind reader to know what is in your customer's mind. You just have to ask them! A great time to do so is when they are a brand new customer. Important tip: NEVER trust your memory to tell you what people liked. Write it down exactly what you asked the person and what they told you. You can create surveys to do this for you or you can do this in person just DO it!

You may not be doing Twitter correctly. If you are advertising via twitter you should always follow those who either follow you or follow the people you want to follow you. If you want to offer someone specific something you should always follow them first then ask them that way it is not a one sided "buy my stuff". It never hurts to follow others on Twitter.

The results you are getting are the results you are getting because of what you are doing. If you want things to change you have to change them. When someone is not best suited to do a job they will produce the lower quality results than someone who's trained in the job they are doing. Sometime this means outsourcing or re-tasking employees.

You need to focus on your tasks. Multitasking can get you lots of results sure but in order to get the best result of anything you have to focus on it. If you are trying to market your company you need to focus on it. You can put your ads all over magazines, newspapers and the internet but if you do not focus on it, you could be wasting money on one of those mediums. Focus on your marketing and ask your clients and customers where you were found and you will know what works and what doesn't.

You don't need huge thousand dollar trade show signs, walls and $50 pens to give away in order to bring attention to others when you are at a trade show.

You shouldn't focus your marketing on gut feelings and you shouldn't ever use "but we've always done it that way" as an excuse for any business decisions! The world is changing and your small ads in the magazine that maybe one person noticed and told you about, just isn't enough to cut it these days. You should put your marketing in many places and give a discount code for readers/viewers so you KNOW where you are being seen so you can get yourself away from the places you are not.

 The number one error in marketing these days is businesses are not putting enough content out on the internet. Starting a blog is a good step as long as you keep up with it.
