Do you have a good marketing strategy?



In this episode of the Business Millennials Podcast, hosts Safa Harris and Ashley Dreager, founders of Scale and Thrive Co., dive deep into the fundamentals of marketing, aiming to clear up common misunderstandings. They explore strategic insights for accelerating business growth, touching on topics like the importance of a holistic understanding of marketing beyond basic definitions, the pitfalls of one-size-fits-all solutions, and the balance between outsourcing and DIY approaches in business processes.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Marketing, in its simplest form, is communicating with people about your business through various channels such as social media, email, and SEO.
  2. One-size-fits-all solutions and templates rarely work in marketing, as each business has unique factors such as target audience, offers, and brand voice that require custom strategies.
  3. Authenticity is crucial in marketing and copying others' strategies without adapting them to your business can hinder relatability and trust with your audience.
  4. Business owners should strive to have a baseline understanding of marketing tasks, even when outsourcing, to effectively manage projects, allocate resources, and handle unexpected challenges.
  5. Outsourcing marketing tasks is not always the best solution, and business owners must consider factors such as budget, timeline, and their own willingness to learn when deciding whether to outsource or tackle tasks in-house.
