Hawing and running a business isn’t always fun and games and collecting cash. If you want a successful business you have to invest a lot of time and love for it to bloom.
Many consider their business as a child. If you invest in it, put in the time, work and knowledge it is going to grow up in a strong persona that will be on top of their game always. This all pretty much translates into your business. Investing money, time, and applying new knowledge will put you on top and in front of everybody.
Sometimes having the best product and service doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t have good marketing. What you need to do is get someone to care enough about it to pay attention to what you offer and you do that by investing in marketing. Marketing can be done in a lot of different ways and one of those is builder.ai.
Since nothing happens without attention, you have to consider adding some to your business if you want to upscale it nowadays. The most important step as we already mentioned is marketing, considering that you have a stable business model and a good product that has a market. Let’s dive into some details, shall we?!
This is a part of the marketing strategy that is a foundation you have to have if you want your business to succeed. Today’s world is hyper-competitive and very saturated which means you can’t be all things to all people as a means to get everyone’s attention. What you need to do is specialize or focus on a certain area, product, service, or whatever your business revolves around. If you think that a generalist or jack of all trades businesses are doing good these days and years you couldn’t be more wrong. The general rule of thumb is when you try to appeal to everyone you end up appealing to no one. This is the reality, and no matter how harsh it is you have to take it and start specializing in a certain thing or certain groups of people.
This is exactly how it sounds like – being different, but that is not everything. You have to know and everyone else has to know how exactly are you different from everyone else. It has to be better than everyone else and it has to matter to your market, and on top of that, you have to prove that you are different from your competition. This part is really hard to achieve but your business needs to be different from anyone else if you want to fight out with the market-full of everyone else doing the same thing. Differentiation isn’t simply convincing everyone else that you are different, that is easy, but you have to be different and better. This is why deep research and digging around for direct and indirect competitors is important and when you find out what everyone else is about it is easy for you to set a unique path for your business. Look for brand values, characteristics, authenticity, and what does your brand or your business stand for?! These are all the questions that will, when answered, show you just how to differentiate yourself from the rest of the competitors in your market.
This is the third very powerful marketing principle that allows you to not waste your energy and resources on trying to reach everyone on the planet earth with your product but to focus on a select group or groups of people, aka your consumers. Segmentation will ask you to look at all the different segments of your market and pick the one, ore ones that will benefit the most from your business, brand, product, service, or whatever you deal with. There is something called the Pareto’s Principle that says that 80% of your revenue will come from 20% of customers. This principle depicts what we are saying here very clearly and nicely and by applying this principle to your business model you will see what are the 20% of people that you have to focus on that are going to get you that 80% of revenue.
After applying segmentation to the market you are after then the concentration is the next step that will mandate that you focus or concentrate on only those people (that 20% we mentioned above) and ignores everything else. This ignores everything else doesn’t mean you have to be closed for everyone else but that your real focus should be on those top 20% of your customers and that you should give them 99% of your time, money, energy, resources, etc. this is how you get more of them, keep them around for longer and eventually bump up the revenue from them from that 80% to 120% by applying these marketing strategies.
5. How to speed all of this up?
This last thing will help you get all of these strategies in motion a bit faster and feel the goodness that comes with it a bit sooner.
What you have to do is understand your market a lot better than they understand themselves. Do a lot of research and get in their minds and know them better than they know themselves. To achieve this a healthy communication with customers, or your prospective customers is of the utmost importance. Then you have to know what do your customers want. You have to have the offer, the message, the content, and the context that will resonate with them and that will show them you have what they need to cross from a state of wanting to their desired end state.
Next is choosing where to market your business and everything that comes with it? Well with the development of social platforms and paid ads you can’t go wrong with the internet. Every social platform can fulfill your advertisement needs and if you want icing on the cake paid Google ads are another thing to turn to.
If you are wondering when is the best time for all this, then it is really easy to answer. The “When” is right now and there is no question about it. Now is the best time to start implementing these strategies and as soon as they start repaying, you will thank us.
