As marketers, we jump at the opportunity to try out new strategies and hope they will produce a greater amount of results for our Brand. There’s always a new way to reach consumers, so it is beneficial to sit down and do a bit of optimizing to our marketing toolkit. Reviewing your own marketing strategies and determining what is working for your Brand, what is out of date, and what you should cut is very beneficial to the overall success of your Brand. This process, streamlining your marketing, creates a more efficient strategy by only using the tools that benefit your Brand.
There are many benefits to streamlining your marketing. One benefit is that it provides a more consistent and focused look at your marketing strategy. Once you have cut out all of the unnecessary tools, you and your team are able to hone in on the ones that are producing the best results for your Brand. Having a more focused marketing strategy will allow your organization to keep all channels consistent with your Brand’s image.
Another benefit to streamlining your marketing is that it provides control. Before you streamline, your marketing may seem unmanageable. By cutting out certain marketing tools, it will provide a sense of control and peace of mind over all of your marketing campaigns.
Streamlining your marketing also benefits your Brand by enhancing your budget. Do you know how much money your organization spends on marketing? Now - do you know how much your organization spends on marketing strategies that don’t produce results for your Brand? Cutting tools that don’t produce results will allow you to take that portion of your budget and invest it in the tools that are producing results for your Brand. This will allow those tools to grow and will help make them even stronger.
One last major benefit to streamlining your marketing is that it makes your marketing strategies more efficient. Streamlining allows you to create a system that is easier to pinpoint what is working and what is not. By cleaning up the clutter of your marketing toolkit, you become more efficient in gathering and analyzing your data, and you are able to make better and faster improvements to your marketing campaigns.
Take the time to look at all of your marketing tools and determine what is producing results. Look at your tools with an open mind and cut the strategies that may not be working the way you anticipated. It’s okay if some strategies are not producing results. By cutting those tools, you will be able to have a more controlled, efficient and consistent marketing strategy that will give you more bang for your buck.
