As a small business owner, time is elusive, and too often marketing tends to fall to the back burner. Owners are so busy running businesses, honoring family commitments and the million other things they need to do on a daily basis that this vital effort gets short shrift. Yet the simple truth remains: if you’re not marketing a business, you’re not growing it.

Here are some essential steps to that end.

Set goals

Take a minute to step back and ask what you’re trying to achieve. This will help determine where to spend marketing effort. Do you want to drive more traffic to a website? Need a better conversion rate? Are you trying to create brand awareness? Knowing what you’re trying to accomplish will dictate the appropriate marketing strategy.

Know who you are targeting, and find unique messaging

Relevance is one of, if not the most important aspect of Search Engine Optimization. People have a better chance of finding you if your content is relevant to them. So, who are you targeting, and what words are they using when they hop online and start searching for products or services? What are their interests? What are their struggles?

You can’t successfully run a business without a consistent revenue stream. No matter how strong your ideas are, they won’t be of much use if you don’t have a way to continually bring in money. As a business owner, more revenue usually means more security, and that will lead to more satisfaction with your business from both the client and team perspectives.So, how can you go about bringing in more revenue for your business? You can’t simply will the money into existence, as much as we all wish that we could. The truth is that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for revenue generation — after all, every company and every industry are vastly different. However, you can probably get a good start by focusing on lead generation.Why Are Leads So Important?Every company must sell their product or service if they hope to succeed in the increasingly competitive world of business. Whether they do this through old-school cold calling and traditional sales reps or through high-tech marketing channels, they will always need one thing — leads. While you can always get better at selling, the magic is in the leads.Sales reps can’t just call on random people or businesses to see if they require a product or service.
