First things first, your marketing strategy needs to be…well, there has to be one. Many businesses fail to think about who they are serving and focus too much on making that big payoff. If there is anything that we have learned from business is that 1) you gotta have a plan and 2) you gotta have an audience. If you rely too heavily on the fads, your product or service will quickly fade away, like the Pokemon Go app that waned after a month.
If we are being completely honest, every marketing strategy that comes out of the drawing board sucks and need to be refined to make it work for your company. Here are some things to consider during that meeting.
Is Your Marketing Strategy a Big Assumption?
In business, we have to make assumptions, forecasts, you can say. Assumptions can give you some idea of what to do and where to do and who your audience is. The best forecasts are the ones that have backing. Data from your analytics and research will give you a better idea of your target demographic. Check out what these experts have to say about using data for marketing.
Use Tools like A/B Testing
There is always room for improvement. It is always good to compare your last campaign strategy and see what works. This is true not just for email campaigns, but also for anything your company does that will require you to shell out time and money (so everything).
You’ll Need Data
Research is so important because of the data you are able to gather from it. No marketing goes well when you shoot from the hip. Start gathering information. Use your social media platforms to learn what your audience wants. Once you’ve gathered them, use it! Data can do so much for you!
