Do you sometimes feel like you are running in circles when it comes to your marketing strategy?
As entrepreneurs, we are constantly looking for ways to better our business and our marketing strategy. We read books, watch videos and listen to podcasts just like this one to gain insight into running our business better.
We are told that we should be here and there and do things this way or that way. We watch others succeed and make quick decisions that we should start doing things the way “they” are doing it, and we can gain more business. We get super excited about it until….we see something else that seems to fit us better, and then we shift.
In the end, we have a list of amazing ideas, but our execution is off. Our marketing strategy has us on a hamster wheel, and you desperately want to get off and start making money!
If so, then my guest today will help you stop running in circles and get started with the right marketing strategy specific to you.
