What’s Your Marketing Rhythm, and Why Should You Have One?

Like the seasons, the biorhythm of business and the annual review of marketing execution is a predictable phenomenon.   It can be spurred by a stressed owner focusing on something that is not his/her core competency, a slowdown in funnel activity, a cost-cutting mandate, or even a sales department complaining about the lack of quality leads.  As we engage to help right the ship, most of the time, we’ve found that what is lacking is a strategic framework that the client is willing to own.  A framework that prioritizes the client’s underlying goals and the pathway to success that the entire organization can follow.   

As a small business owner, it can be hard to balance the ideal marketing plan with the reality of limited resources. It's easy to get overwhelmed and frustrated by the amount of work that needs to be done. But there are ways to streamline your marketing efforts and see improved results without taking on too much additional work. 

Outsourcing Your Marketing Strategy and Execution
Outsourcing is an effective way to delegate the workload while still taking advantage of professional expertise. Outsourcing can help you increase efficiency, reduce overhead costs, and save time for more important tasks while, at the same time, improving customer experience with your brand. The right agency will also likely have vertical knowledge and save you cycles creating relevant content, all the while getting access to professionals with specialized skills that you don’t have time or money to learn yourself or hire full-time.
Creating a Plan 

A well-thought-out plan is essential for any successful business venture. When it comes to marketing plans, forward planning helps ensure that all of your efforts focus on achieving specific goals and objectives. Creating a plan also helps track progress so you can easily identify what’s working and what needs improvement. This allows you to adjust tactics quickly to maximize results and minimize wasted effort. Finally, having a detailed plan makes it easier for everyone involved (including yourself) to stay organized and on task throughout the entire process. 

Utilizing Frameworks 
Frameworks structure your marketing strategy so that all your efforts are directed toward achieving specific goals within predetermined parameters. This helps ensure that all team members follow the same direction and work together towards shared objectives instead of being scattered in different directions with no clear end goal in sight. Frameworks also allow for greater accountability since performance can easily be measured against set criteria and metrics instead of relying on subjective opinions or guesswork. Additionally, using frameworks makes it easier to scale up or down depending on changes in budget or resources without compromising the quality or effectiveness of the overall strategy.  

Streamlining your small business marketing is essential if you want to achieve better results without burning yourself out or overstretching budgets and human resources. Utilizing strategies like forward planning, outsourcing, and frameworks can help ensure that all team members work together towards shared goals while always staying within established parameters – resulting in improved performance across the board! With these tools in hand, you'll be able to take greater control over your marketing - ensuring maximum efficiency along with improved ROI!
