For many, their passion is what inspired their business. They saw an opportunity to do what they most enjoy doing while filling a need in the community at large and pursuing their interest, their business evolved. While the wheels turned slowly in the beginning and the stress level was low because the opportunity to create and perform in line with that core vision offered fulfillment, growth had an unexpected impact on what they initially had envisioned for themselves.
Suddenly, that small business owner finds themselves juggling staffing demands, administration, regulatory requirements, marketing and other business essentials which are essential for the operation of their venture, but allow less and less time to focus solely on their craft. It’s a peculiar conflict that growth and success can become more stressful, not because of the increased volume of work, but rather the amount of energy expended on areas of the business that could be best delegated to others.
What if you could offload some of the key responsibilities and get back to what you love to do?
The Role of Marketing
Regardless of what stage in the life cycle of your business you find yourself in, there is always a need to ensure that you have visibility to your clientele and potential new customers. At the beginning, you are keenly aware of the importance of advertising to let the public know that you exist, but that awareness in the community and to the consumers who are interested in your product is important on an on-going basis to let buyers know that you are still active and engaged so that they can keep you at the top of your mind.
While ongoing efforts may not be as splashy and aggressive as some of your initial efforts upon launching, it is important to be aware of and tap into the available channels which are part of the modern technological realm. The limited options which traditionally saw all advertising spends on newspaper, radio and television ads have changed. You can now tap in to online avenues that allow for a more organic connection with customers, but with a seemingly endless slate of options, it can be difficult to know where best to devote your efforts.
Recruiting Expertise To Your Team
The marketing of your business requires a dedicated resource that understands not only what you do but what drives you to do it. They see not only the present for your business, but understand where you’d like to go with it in the coming years and can also contribute by tapping into the potential markets that you hadn’t considered. But budgets for start ups and small businesses don’t always allow for a dedicated marketing manager to be hired in house, that’s where out sourcing the marketing function of your business starts to become an attractive option.
