Success Starts with Smart Marketing Strategy
I work with many clients in the design and construction industry. To quickly explain the importance of marketing strategy, I ask if they would build a house or office without a plan or blueprint. The answer of course is NO!
Then I ask if they have a solid marketing strategy or marketing plan for their business. Many owners sadly shake their heads and admit they do not. However, trying to achieve marketing success without a solid plan is virtually impossible in today’s dynamic environment.
The good news is that developing a smart marketing strategy is really not hard. It just takes a knowledge of how things work together for your industry and then developing the right plan for your business.
I Have a Website, Isn’t that ALL I Really Need?
Websites are an important part of your overall marketing strategy, but simply having a website (even having a cool-looking website) is simply not enough in today’s competitive market. While some businesses operate almost exclusively in an online world by selling products via websites, businesses in the design and construction industry who are selling SERVICES rely heavily on many traditional marketing and offline marketing tactics. It’s important to understand how things work together to develop the right overall strategy for success.
What About Just Doing Social Media Marketing?
For most businesses that provide services either to consumers (B2C marketing) or to other businesses (B2B marketing), social media marketing is part of a comprehensive plan. I’ve seen companies target the wrong social media platforms with the wrong messages and simply waste valuable time and money. Again, it’s important to develop the right mix of marketing activities using the right tools to achieve success.
