How can a marketing consultant help you?  Ask yourself these 4 questions:

Many entrepreneurs go through the same progressions. They start out with a small idea the becomes a life-commitment with hopes of living the dream. Throughout the development of this “little idea” there will be all kinds of roles that are taken on because there simply is no one else to handle it and who has time to teach someone how to do what you can learn. Right? …… WRONG.

Some are fortunate enough to run their business and master the art of selling, negotiating, advertising, marketing, accounting, and all the other intangible duties that come with running business.

The smart ones realize early that no one succeeds without help. The gain back their energy to focus on day to day business needs.

So how do you know if a consultant team can help you? Ask yourself these four questions.

1) Are there opportunities or openings in my market that I want to take advantage of but can’t find the right promotion/strategy to do so?

2) Do I feel like I am constantly juggling : creating effective messaging that keeps current customers yet attract new customers, developing new products/services to stay relevant, finding and building alliances and partnerships?

3) Am I falling behind in using technology to help me find new business?

4) Are my issues primarily due to time and staff constraints and not financial constraints?

If you said yes to any of the four, we should talk. Or you should at least spend more time reading our other post the help spark some ideas for your business. Take advantage of our time and email us at info@squareballmarketing.com

How to sell your idea in under 3 minutes

In the world of marketing, new ideas are truly a dime a dozen. We all have good ideas, bad ideas, innovative ideas, and (my personal favorite) “better than the last idea” ideas. The question is what happens after the idea is formed. Who does it go to? How will I tell them? Will they buy in and how long will it take to convince them? Most businesses are riddled with these questions on an everyday basis.

We found a great article to help answer some of those questions and give you some direction. A great idea that stays stagnate is just an awesome dream, but a great idea that is put to work is what helps businesses succeed.
