As we talked about in last week’s email (your very first Marketing Tip Weekly Email) you need to start your journey into marketing by keep your eyes focused on PROFIT.

That’s your number one goal in each and every marketing output, channel, platform or campaign. Always approach marketing with the aim of working to a profit margin. The more you do the more profit your business makes.

Of course you need to remember that some marketing channels produce long-term gains, but you should still focus your efforts (and budget) on direct response marketing.

Do you ever get stuck when it comes to your marketing?

Perhaps you know you've got a great product or service but you struggle to find the right people to buy from you?!  No matter what you try you just can’t find enough customers… if so, you’re not alone!  In fact, you’re just like the majority of businesses out there!

In over twenty years in business I've met thousands of business owners, mostly from the SME sector.  A very large proportion of these people all struggle with one common difficulty; knowing how best to take their product or service into the marketplace and make marketing a profitable exercise.

When it comes to marketing it’s not just about knowing how you want your logo to look or what you want people to read on your website; in fact, it’s far more fundamental than that.

Very few business owners, and especially the ones who are in their first venture, have ever been taught the basic mechanics of good marketing practice, things like:

Knowing how to clearly define and communicate your product or offer, so people understand what you’re all about…

Learning how to build a simple ‘customer journey’ through your marketing so people can make a quick and confident buying decision about your products or services…

Being aware of how you can use a simple calculation to work out how much you should be spending on marketing and getting profitable results…

Understanding why a simple marketing plan will keep you on track and ensure you can produce consistent and measurable results…

I've seen lots of good businesses struggle on in the hope that things will change; off course they often do, unless the business owner/manager is prepared to do something different.

Even more importantly, it’s amazing to think that good marketing, the sort that puts money into your business and not just take it out, is actually really very simple when you know how.

I was very fortunate that I had the benefit of one of Europe’s top marketing experts (specialising in small business) to teach and mentor me over two years.  He taught me the simple mechanics and fundamentals of good solid marketing and sales.  That knowledge has earned me thousands of pounds, and even more importantly, my clients hundreds of thousands of pounds!

Now I want to share this with you… and show you how knowledge and the right application of these principles can create fast improvements in your business.

This is simple knowledge about good business practice that every small business owner/manager can benefit from.  And just like my clients who've adopted these and seen the results for themselves, you can learn how to build a better and more successful business.

If what I've said above makes sense, if it prompts you to want to find out more and if you’re curious that there could be knowledge out there that will help you to become even more successful, then I’d like to make this offer to you;

Head over to Make Marketing Work and grab yourself a Free copy of the first Module for this marketing course online. The Introduction will show you how you can make quick and powerful changes to your marketing.

Why Branding your business may be more important (and simpler) than you thought...
Does Branding Really Matter?

I’d like to think by now that you understand that #branding is so much more than just a #logo. In fact, branding is becoming more and more important when it comes to business. Not only is it the way that our customers recognise us, it’s also how reputations are built and extra net worth is added to companies.

There are a few great articles on this that I wanted to share with you below, to illustrate how this is not something that is going away.

If you have not yet considered what your #brand is and have a plan in place to maintain it, develop it and ensure others are sticking to your brand guidelines too, then you seriously need to start paying it some attention… like now!

“Brand drives the heart of the world’s most successful organisations. John Lewis, Apple, Virgin and Disney for example, are all businesses with a clear brand proposition that not only informs how they look and communicate but how they operate, which decisions they make and how. Brand exists at the top table, within these companies giving them purpose and direction, and not as an additional responsibility of the marketing department.” (taken from this article: http://www.designweek.co.uk/industry-voice/is-branding-the-new-digital/3037961.article – I recommend you read it in full)

Big companies know that their brand is hugely important and they have very strict #BrandGuidelines to ensure that their brand is consistent across the globe and comes across in all that they do.
The BBC know that their brand is one of their most valuable assets and that it needs to be protected and kept consistent in order to hold and grow it’s potential and power:

“The BBC brand is our most valuable asset, recognised worldwide for world-class programmes and broadcasting excellence. The BBC name and visual identity are critical to sustaining this recognition and as such must be used with care to protect the BBC’s reputation and integrity.”

Consider this: WhatsApp has a revenue of £14million and pretty much no profit. It has a staff of 50 and has 450million users – however it recently sold for £12billion! The fact that it is so well known, is much loved by its users and continues to grow, added massive value to the business and its brand.

“In fact, our survey found that B-to-B purchasing decision makers consider the brand as a central rather than a marginal element of a supplier’s value proposition.  Our survey found that decision makers say that brand is almost as important as the efforts of sales teams in encouraging them to make out a purchase order. In the US, for example, brands are seen as having an 18% share in the purchasing decision, compared to the 17 percent tied up in the sales effort.”

The above snippet is taken from this article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/mckinsey/2013/06/24/why-b-to-b-branding-matters-more-than-you-think/ from Forbes, which goes into more detail about just how important branding is becoming for B2B and I believe this also applies to B2C too.

Whichever way you slice it, branding is becoming more and more important for successful business.

YOUR brand is important and should be high on your list of priorities in everything that you do with your business from your staff uniform and the way the phones are answered, through to your promotional materials and web presence.

Build your brand and you add massive value to your business and your clients too as a clear brand gives a clear identity and we’re all much better able to connect with your business if we understand what it’s all about. And connection is massively important in building a strong, supportive, brand-loving customer base.

Not really sure where to start with your own branding? I’d love to help you! :)
