The Foundation of Success
Before diving into strategy, Emma stresses the importance of having clarity on your goals. She highlights that these goals, often evolving from the previous year, directly influence your marketing strategy. Whether it’s growing your email list, selling a specific product, or reaching a new demographic – each goal demands a tailored approach.
Tailoring Your Approach
Emma divides the planning process into two significant parts: platforms and content. She emphasizes that platforms extend beyond social media, encompassing everything from email marketing to Google Ads. The key is understanding where your audience is and tailoring your strategy accordingly. The type and amount of content required vary across platforms, necessitating a detailed, platform-specific approach.
Avoiding the Pitfalls of Inconsistency
One of the pitfalls Emma highlights is the inconsistency that arises when businesses fail to execute their marketing strategy consistently. She highlights the need to be realistic about time constraints and personal preferences, advising businesses to outsource tasks that fall outside their strengths and available time. Consistency, Emma argues, is the key for sustained marketing success.
Outsourcing and Support Systems
Emma emphasizes the importance of outsourcing tasks to maintain consistency, especially during busy periods. She advocates for seeking support from external teams or consultants, stressing that running a business alone is neither feasible nor sustainable. Emma encourages business owners to build a support system to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your marketing efforts.
