Interested in ramping up your marketing strategies? Get results by taking action on these tips from a Vancouver marketing consultant:

1. Set targets and make plans to reach them

Do you know where you want to be and how you’re going to get there? If you don’t set targets you certainly can’t reach them. Running a business means constantly reevaluating where you are and where you want to be.

When was the last time you set and achieved goals?

2. Focus on trust

Always remember that marketing is all about relationships, and relationships are about trust.

Does your business reflect a commitment to building long-term relationships that keep coming back for more? 

3. Avoid costly marketing mistakes

From fad marketing to blending in with the crowd, avoid these top 11 marketing mistakes and you’ll be on your way to achieving your targets.

4. Watch your marketing pipeline

Is your marketing pipeline leaking? And do you know what a leaky marketing pipeline could be costing you?

Keep an eye on your marketing pipeline. You’ll have a more holistic understanding of your business, and you’ll be better positioned to take your business to the next level.

5. Stop marketing without a plan

Shotgun marketing means marketing without a plan — you take fire at whatever is there without a big-picture understanding of what you want to accomplish.

Don’t market with a shotgun. Market with a team of professionals who understand the big picture and can take you where you want to go.

6. Bring in the right team

Surround yourself with people who understand your vision and can help you get there.
