Are you prepared to effectively execute small business marketing challenges?
Small business marketing is the most challenging task ever and, if you are reading this, your small business is even more challenging than most.
Simple, like many of us, you probably worked in corporate America prior to launching your own business so
- Your vision is not small
- Your standards are not small
- Your knowledge and experience are not small
- The clients you are going after are not small
So, just about the only thing thats small is the size of your business. Today. But that ought to change fast.

When I started my first agency everyone told me: time or money. Choose. You can do things slowly and cheaply or faster and more expensive. So, the answer is probably not. You cant use the same tools because the scale is completely different. But one can certainly use the same big-company critical thinking to evaluate the processes, tools and data one uses.
Three areas that marketing for a small company should focus on:
- Insights and processes
Concentrating on what can be realistically applied here and now and with a single focus: improving your business either through increased sales or better ROI.
