Top Marketing Tips for 2013

So you've been trying to figure out how to market your business for a while now. You see others do it. And it seems like everyone makes it look so easy. But for some reason, success keeps eluding you. Every time you get close to generating a consistent amount of prospects, something happens and you end up back where you started. Not this time. Because this time you're going to be armed with the same tips, tricks and secrets that the most successful marketers know. So give these tips a try and see if they don't work for you too.

Tip 1: Never neglect your marketing education. Some people think of it as a luxury. However, without the right marketing, your business will suffer.

WARNING: When you decide to make marketing a priority, make sure only to follow a marketer who is doing exactly what you are wanting to do right now. Some people only teach and not do.

Tip 2: Avoid just focusing on branding and add direct response marketing instead. Some people thinking branding is the answer. However, try going to the bank and deposit branding. It doesn't work. What you need is quality prospects who respond to your marketing and raise their hand because they are interested.

Tip 3: Be sure to track all of your marketing and advertising. You can use websites, 800 numbers and coupon codes to track your ads.

Bonus Tip: Twillio is a great resource to get a phone number to track your marketing.

Tip 4: Don't be afraid to be different in your industry. Remember, most people are not studying marketing so don't compare yourself to them. They are usually making a bunch of mistakes.

Tip 5: Create a free giveaway so others can experience your company.

Tip 6: Allow yourself one hour a day to just focus on marketing.

Tip 7: Let others help you. There are plenty of people who will do what you are not good at or what you do not want to do. Don't try doing everything yourself. It is a big mistake.

Tip 8: Create a marketing plan for the next 90 days and follow it.

Tip 9: Take the first step without worrying about the results. Marketing is a test. Don't be hard on yourself. You will have failures.

Tip 10: Try taking a successful marketer that you respect out to lunch. Pick their brain about the best marketing campaigns that they ran before. Make sure that you buy the lunch to thank them for their time.
