Navigating the Marketing Minefield: How to Avoid the Top 5 Blunders Made by New Entrepreneurs and Chart a Path to Success

Free Email Course

How do you chart a path to success? You start with a strategy.

Marketing Strategy

A strategy is crucial for the success of any business or organization. 

 It provides a roadmap for achieving goals and objectives. Without a strategy, businesses and organizations lack direction and focus, and their efforts are likely ineffective and inefficient.

That’s why strategies always need to come first.

Marketing Tactics

Conversely, tactics are specific actions or steps to achieve a particular goal or objective. For marketing, tactics are social media, email marketing, paid ads, referrals, etc.

Tactics are important, but they are not enough to ensure success.

Tactics without a strategy are like shooting arrows in the dark without knowing where you’re aiming.

A strategy is the foundation upon which tactics are built and executed, and it’s crucial for ensuring that the business or organization is moving in the right direction toward its goals.

Why this Email Course?

You’re burned out, you’re tired of spinning your wheels, and you want quick results.

Not seeing the number of customers, or the right customers coming through your door…and being exhausted?

That’s right. I see you. I get it.

I’m an entrepreneur myself, so I know the hours you spend DIYing solutions to work for you so that you can finally see that consistent $$ coming in.

Guess what? You matter, and so does your time.

It’s actually your most valuable resource.

That means you gotta use it wisely, and following every sub-par piece of marketing advice on the internet is not a great way to spend your time.

Why you’re flailing and why it’s not your fault

Because most of that advice is focused on marketing tactics, but at this point in the game, you need a holistic game plan (a strategy) before you start popping in tactics like email marketing, social media, webinars, paid ads, etc.
