Many entrepreneurs of the newly started business or even a small businessman for that matter are clueless when posed with the questions of who do you think will be your consumers or who do you think will buy your product?
Most smart and savvy businessmen start their business with the assumption that everyone will buy their product. But presumptions like this mostly results in faulty decision making, incorrect pricing, confusing marketing strategies and eventually failure of business.
A shrewd businessman on the contrary will always start a business with the presumption that only a limited segment of people will end up buying his product or service. Such an analysis helps to define the target and concentrate all the efforts of marketing strategies and money towards the same.
There is no point in selling all the things to all the people. The game lies in becoming a specialist of a particular product or service and identifying the reasons for which people may buy your product.
The identification of the above possibilities helps determine the category under which your product falls and adopt essential marketing strategies to market the same.
Defining proper marketing methods enables a company to decide the type of customers it will be targeting. Say for example, whether to adopt an internet marketing strategy or direct marketing strategy or through public relations are some of the questions which a company needs to define clearly when it comes to marketing methods.
Similarly, when adopting internet marketing strategies, whether to adopt Facebook, Twitter, emailing or blogs are questions which need to be thought over and decided accordingly.
The success of the marketing efforts undertaken needs to be reviewed periodically by setting a specific time frame. Allotting specific time for the marketing strategies to succeed and reviewing the same periodically helps to understand whether the marketing strategy adopted is working.
Advertising without proper marketing strategy alone won’t help to achieve marketing results as it is just like a strand in a rope and not strong enough like the rope. Coordinating advertising along with the marketing plan is the perfect way to boost sales.
Expecting results overnight would not be logical, but will require dedicated and consistent efforts. Adopting a wait and watch policy by working consistently is the right way to increase sales and achieve growth for the business.
