5 Signs That Indicate Your Business Needs Professional Marketing Help
You started your business with electric enthusiasm but feel yourself pulling back more and more lately. You feel conflicted. The passion that ignited days of hard work is still there because you do believe in your brand and what it stands for. You believe in what you created but can’t help but feel purposeless and de-motivated each time you glance at those dreaded statistics.
Things seem to be falling apart, but are they?
They’re not. Your brand isn’t at harm; your marketing strategy is.
We’ve seen this scenario repeat itself way too often. Passionate entrepreneurs start their business off at a high with innovative ideas and strategies that are destined to win. Their enthusiasm is at an all-time high, so they decide to take everything into their own hands—even things that are not their forte. This is when everything begins to fall apart.
While you may be a phenomenal entrepreneur, you’re not a jack of all trades. The best way to sustain business growth is to hire experienced and skilled external help for areas that you may not have the same insight in.
Here are five telling signs that indicate it’s time to hand over your marketing hat to someone else:
1. You Decided to Learn Marketing in a Month
The world of marketing is highly competitive. With new trends, strategies and ideas coming in every day, it’s important to stay on top of everything. If this is something you picked up on through a few online classes, you may want to rethink just how qualified you really are in the marketing industry.
Understanding market culture and keeping up with the changing face of advertising and media consumption requires years of experience and qualified skills. It’s not a one-man job; it requires the expertise of an efficient team.
If you’re struggling, it really isn’t your fault. You’ve simply taken on too much. Consult a professional marketing company that has been in the game for years and understands what works and what doesn’t, especially when it comes to inbound marketing strategies.
2. Your Sales Say It All
Plummeting sales are the biggest indicator that something’s wrong. While you may not be qualified to rectify the damage done, a professional marketing team can quickly examine your present strategy, including lead generation and nurturing plans, to determine lapses and make suggestions accordingly.
3. You Haven’t Catered to the Multicultural Market
One of the biggest avenues that self-marketers or even several marketing experts tend to overlook is the impact of multiculturalism on media consumption.
Research indicates that Hispanic and black populations use mobile phones to access the internet more frequently than white populations in the U.S. With the percentage of minorities in the U.S. vastly increasing each day, it has become imperative for marketing strategies to evolve accordingly for more diverse tactics that target wider audiences.
Failing to do so results in restricted reach that affects brand sales, visibility and growth. If your business hasn’t expanded its strategy in alignment with the growing multiculturalism in the U.S., you might want to look into hiring a professional team that excels at providing winning multicultural marketing strategies.
4. You Don’t Enjoy Marketing
If you’re well-equipped with years of experience and skills as a successful marketer but don’t ultimately like what you do, the lack of passion will show in the quality of work you produce.
Find something you’re passionate about and excel at it instead of wasting your talent and energy in an area you really couldn’t care less about. Your well-meaning intentions and work will fail to translate into observable results no matter how hard you try.
If the thought of it doesn’t make you happy, let others who have that drive take care of it for you. Their genuine interest will automatically mean they’ve willingly invested more time and energy in keeping up with trends and killer strategies.
5. You Can’t Afford External Help
Except you can. You don’t have to suffer in silence and watch your innovative ideas fall flat because you have a low budget. While internal marketers can be quite expensive, an experienced and reputable marketing team will cost you much less.
You’ll be able to get better insight from a range of experts than from one individual who will charge triple the sum.
