Raise your hand if you've ever fallen victim to a #proven marketing strategy? 🙋🏽🙋🏽🙋🏽
Look, trying to find marketing advice on Google is like trying to fish dimes out of a bowl of mashed potatoes.
Plus, there are a lot of over the top kind of marketers out who offer pie-in-the-sky results with so-their systems.
We've all seen them:
"Get an avalanche of raving fans!"
"Get 5,000 followers in three days!"
"Find your passion, start a business, lose 20 pounds, make millions, and meet Oprah!"
Here's how I feel when I read those:
It makes me think of the time I got caught in the mosh pit at a Black Flag concert in college, which was not fun.
You may get 5,000 fans in three days but chances are they are going to be crap quality.
3. Also crap!
I mean, c'mon. Let's be at least a little real.
And it's easy to get seduced by the promise of amazing results...and meeting Oprah. And you may have tried out a few of the offers out there. I know I have.
Often, those over the top systems don't produce the results they promise.
The problem? Marketing isn't a one-size-fits-all kinda deal.
Marketing is a matter applying the laws of marketing to find the strategies and tactics that'll work for you and your business – not just cut and paste from someone else's system.
It's nuanced for sure.
But worth the effort to find what works for you so you can bypass a lot of overwhelm and heartache in your marketing.
I didn't write the laws of marketing, but I do help entrepreneurs navigate them so they can build a brand they love with core marketing that attracts the right people to their business.
