Are you overwhelmed by the challenges of being a caring practitioner and trying to be a marketing expert too?
These days, the pressure is on to do it all.
People juggle family life, work, extracurricular activities, volunteer work, sports, continuing education or training, and try to get some time in for themselves, as well.
If you’re like most of us, your career takes up a great deal of your time and energy. When you’re not at work, you’re travelling back and forth to the office, brainstorming for it, planning for it, or stressing out about it. It’s always in the back of your mind.
As long as it doesn’t take over your life, this is completely normal. It’s only natural that you want to do the very best you can for your employer, for your client, and of course, to move yourself ahead in your career. It’s actually a good sign, a sign that you care about and are interested in your work.
But are you trying to do too much?
If you’re trying to do your job and handle all of your own marketing as well, you might very well have bitten off more than you can chew. Many companies hire marketing professionals to handle their marketing, advertising, communications and social media management, and for good reason – it’s a lot of work.
Some people think that marketing is easy – that they can buy some advertising, make a few Facebook posts, and call it a day. In reality, marketing experts are highly trained professionals, who know their clients. They know the most effective ways to identify, target, and interact with customers, and have an in-depth understanding social media, digital marketing and visual design. They can align marketing strategies with business strategy and show off your business to its best advantage. They know how to read statistics and identify what is working and what isn’t. They can evaluate your marketing and business performances, and come up with the right marketing strategies and allocate time, money and resources to the right places.
Although everyone in your company should have a basic working knowledge of marketing, and a healthy respect for what it entails, make sure you have a dedicated person to take care of your marketing and communications. That way, you can focus on building a better business while knowing your marketing needs are in good hands.
When looking for a good marketing team, keep in mind that a good team will help you formulate a solid market strategy and a plan on how to execute it; how to target your product or position your service; how to evaluate your customers and test their responses to your marketing activities, and how enhance your organization’s existing engagement with your client base.
