Marketing 101 for business owners
Growth tips & marketing basics
Our Thinkblog is fast becoming the most well-read marketing blog Australia has on offer. Here you'll learn the principles of marketing basics, how to spend your dollar, when not to do-it-yourself, and everything related to growing your business. It's a Marketing 101 channel. Please feel free to comment, or if you'd like to write for us, please reach out with your credentials.
Most business owners that read this will have spent thousands on marketing and never gained traction. They will have dabbled with advertising such radio campaigns, social media activity, building overcomplicated websites, and maybe they’ve even delved into branding.
I cringe at the thought of an agency throwing their clients hard-earned cash into a bottomless hole in the ground before getting the basics of marketing right. Read to the end of this article and you’ll get a gem of advice that every SME business is neglecting. In fact, most large businesses are neglecting this too.
