Look at Marketing as the heart of your business. For your business to survive, it needs marketing, and the stronger the heart, the healthier your business.
Your business could have innovative, disruptive products (or services) that satisfy your customers’ needs, but without marketing it never has the chance to reach your target audience. Therefore, your company’s sales may not achieve it’s targets and it could be difficult to grow going forward.
I have listed below, what I believe to be, five key benefits marketing offers your business.
1. It spreads your name
Good marketing helps you to put your products and services at the front of every customer’s mind. Marketing helps you to establish your brand and makes yours business the one people think about first.
2. It boosts your sales
Once customers recognise your brand, your chances of being able to sell your products or services to them, have significantly improved. Plus, once you’ve become visible to your audience, your brand will be the name on their lips, and word of the quality of your business will spread. Without marketing, these sales wouldn’t have been possible.
3. It helps you gain and retain customers
Once your brand has built solid foundations and made its name, marketing will enable you to retain your customers and create a solid following of loyal consumers – a critical factor in not losing ground to new products and services that hit the market.
4. It enhances your company’s reputation
Any success your business achieves will strongly rely on having a robust, trustworthy reputation. Your marketing builds brand name recognition, and as your reputation grows, so too will your sales. Your ever-growing reputation will therefore be built on strong and smart communication and the quality you offer your audience and marketing is a vital element in all of this.
5. It saves you time
By promoting your product or service through marketing, your business will boost its sales and reach your target audience considerably faster. Effective marketing helps you to get discovered by your audience and engage with them – whilst enabling you to continue developing your successful business.
