Do you have a daily ritual?
Most people have them.
They get up.
Take a shower.
You know the drill.
But when it comes to marketing, most business owners don’t have daily ritual for their marketing.
The one thing I ask my clients religiously is…
What have you done to market your business?today?
When we start most respond with a ?huh?
You need to develop a habit of doing just one thing each and every day that will help market your business. They don’t have to be big things. Just simple things. Here’s a few things that you can do in 30 minutes that will help you get going.
- Write a blog post
- Write an article to publish in the local newspaper
- Follow up with last week’s prospects
- Send a thank you card to a client
- Email a promotion of one of your products
- Follow up with the people you met last week networking
These are just a few things you can do and all of them can be done in under 30 minutes.
I like to write and do a lot of blogging on my own sites and on other sites as a guest blogger. I also like to batch it all up and block off 2 hours to write all the blogs I want to submit for the week. Since, one I get in the creative writing flow it’s just easier that way, it works well.
But you don’t have to block off 2 hours. Just 30 minutes.
Make this your ?30 Marketing Minutes?
As you may have heard, it takes 21 days to develop a new habit. Once you do this, you’ll be more likely to keep up with it and have a lot more success with doing it daily.
Block off 30 minutes to dedicate to marketing. Turn of off the phone, close Facebook and don’t read any new email.
Just block that time to be as effective as possible dedicated to marketing your business.
So many business owners don’t take the time and don’t schedule time to really do the marketing they need to for their business. They get stuck in the rat race and putting out fires all day. They tend to think of marketing only when they don’t have enough business and are in desperate mode.
The best thing you can do is schedule your daily marketing time first thing in the morning. Do it before you get sucked in to the day to day stuff. This way you are ahead of the game and get it done first.
For those of you that really don’t like marketing much, (and I don’t know how you couldn’t), this way you get it done first. As Brian Tracy says ?Eat That Frog?.
It will amaze you how much of a difference you will have made by just taking that ?30 Marketing Minutes? and adding it to your daily ritual.
You see, marketing is something you need to do on a daily basis. You can have a great product but without marketing, you’ll be out of business.
By just taking a few steps each and every day you will set yourself up for success.
