With the business world being more competitive than ever before, it is clear that each company’s managers need to find a way of promoting their business in the most effective way possible.
Yet, far too many businesses suffer from taking a wildly varying approach that sees them fail to take advantage of the opportunities out there. The lack of a consistent promotion strategy is something that can lead to periods of sales droughts mixed with spells of frantic activity.
Craig Ridley, who is the Founder of YourBusinessCoachingClub, commented today that lots of small businesses, “suffer from a roller coaster approach that swings betwee hectic promotions activity and inactivity to poor effect.”
Naturally, there is also the fact that many entrepreneurs are too busy carrying out what they see as normal business operations to consider their promotional activity. In these cases, they see running promotions as being a hassle that takes up too much of their time.
Mr Ridley continued on this theme by stating that “the use of a good promotions plan can help to even out the seasonal fluctuations that many businesses have to get through during the year.” He identified a number of areas for entrepreneurs to focus on, including matching their activity to their budget, understanding all of the current online and offline promotional opportunities, and carefully monitoring results to look for constant improvement.
By mapping out the full year and planning a coherent overall marketing strategy with clear objectives it is possible to avoid many of the pitfalls that cost businesses money in this area. Putting a solid promotional plan in place and then using it well will allow a forward planning entrepreneur to reap the benefits in the future.
