6️⃣ basic marketing tips you won't hate!


When you're running a small business, having a strong marketing strategy in place (or at least SOME kind of a little somethin' related to some sort of strategy thingy 🤦‍♀️) is pretty important!

Don’t forget: consumers learn about local businesses online more than anywhere else.


























So it's important to get your brand out there — and I do NOT mean “one and done”! The truth is, people need to see your offer / sale / message multiple times before taking action. Try your best to build up those impressions.










Creating a marketing plan might sound confusing, but I'm here to share a couple tips to get you started… I'm talking basic, so don't freak out.

1. Know your ideal clients! Who are you trying to reach and what do they care about?

⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇


2. Differentiate between yourself and others. Why should people be buying from or hiring you in particular?

⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇


3. Consider using promotional tools & lead magnets. What type of value can you give your potential clients for free?


⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇ ⬇


4. Make sure you're promoting yourself on your platforms! Your audience wants to get to know *you*, the REAL you… and then they'll care about what you have to offer. Share what makes your offer/service special and unique — but don't forget to include stuff about what makes YOU special and unique. Do you know how many people know that I'm a nacho enthusiast?! It's kinda embarrassing at this point.

5. If you aren't a marketing specialist, that's okay! But don't be afraid to seek out experts for advice and strategy ideas. Also, hi.

6. Outsourcing is a great option for those of us who might have a lot of balls in the air and feel ready to get some extra help. For example, my virtual assistant, Kaitlyn, drafted this email for me and I am editing it right now in this moment and typing this very sentence after the fact. Kaitlyn is a lifesaver / unicorn / princess / genius and she would never say that about herself*. So yes, hiring some help can be such a great thing, but if you aren't ready for that, no worries! You can still find a lot of free marketing resources and courses on sites like Udemy, Hubspot, or head over to my Facebook group for more tips and tricks. 🙋🏼‍♀️

*Kaitlyn is my ride-or-die and you can't have her.
