4 Signs You're Going To Be Successful With Your Online Marketing

Nov 07, 2019

DIGITAL MARKETING MOVES FAST

Marketing isn't the first love for most local business owners. 

You started your business to share your passion for dance or martial arts or to teach kids or help them be healthy and have fun. 

So the chore of marketing and bringing in new customers probably isn't where you love spending your time. 

Add to that the constant change of digital marketing and it becomes overwhelming.

What social media platforms to use, when to post, how to show up in a Google search?

It's enough to make you...

The good news?

If you're doing the following four things, you're already on the right track for success.

1. YOU SUBSCRIBE TO AND FOLLOW ONLINE MARKETING EXPERTS

Well done!  There's no way you can read all the updates on your own so take advantage of trusted organizations and resources that can keep you up to speed through their blogs and newsletters. 

With so many options, there's sure to be a resource that's perfect for your niche.

2. YOU HAVE A LEARNING MINDSET

Great job setting yourself up for success.

You have to be prepared to put on your thinking cap and spend a little time learning if you want to keep up. 

It's critical to commit to continuously growing and adapting your skillset if you want to stay current with digital marketing and its constant changes.

Cultivating that learning mindset doesn't have to be a complicated effort.  Some important traits of lifelong learners include:

  • seeing challenges as opportunities
  • appreciating the process over the end result
  • learning from other people's mistakes
  • valuing growth over speed

3. YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP

Yay for finding your tribe!

You don't need a team of marketing professionals, but even a single partner can help share the load, brainstorm ideas and boost success when it comes to online marketing.

When you know someone else on your team is tuned in to social media, while you focus on SEO, you can work together to manage the changes that will inevitably head your way.

4. YOU DON'T ALWAYS EMBRACE THE LATEST AND GREATEST

Congrats on not getting distracted.

Sometimes you've got no choice but to deal with online marketing changes – can't fight the Facebook algorithm. 

But when new marketing opportunities arise, it doesn't always make sense to jump in right away. 

Tik Tok is getting tons of media exposure these days but there's no reason a local business marketing to parents should spend any time worrying about a platform that focuses on the under 21 crowd and has a high minimum ad spend. 

Don't get sidetracked with the hottest new trends, keep your eyes on your own audience and marketing goals and use the tools and techniques that will help you reach them.

Change is never easy but if you adopt these habits, you'll be a step ahead of the competition and on your way to staying on top of online marketing, reaching more local parents and growing your local business.
