In the meantime, this series of posts is designed to get you to start thinking and hopefully start taking action to help you grow your business.Reason #1: Youre not used to spending money on marketing.Here is a simple fact: Marketing works.

Billions of dollars are spent every year on marketing systems. Building a business of any substance will, at some point require the decision makers to factor in a marketing budget to create a system that generates consistent leads, and brings customers in the door.But small businesses are struggling to make sense of marketing.

There are too many choices, and the risk seems so great, it seems the safe bet is to just hustle. You know how to do what you do and I am going to go out on a limb and suggest you have a hard time admitting you dont know much about marketing and yet, a solid, well-executed marketing plan is the clear difference between winning businesses and losing businesses.Before you get there though before you actually believe in marketing youre probably going to need to fail.

Youre going to make mistakes. Lots of them. Thats part of the process.

If youre a decision maker, especially if youre the only decision maker, its important that you understand why marketing fails so you can avoid making some of the most egregious mistakes. Youve never had to spend money on marketing before.Youve done it on the cheap since you started your business and it worked just fine for a long time, but now things just arent working as well as they used to.

This is the most common reason marketing fails: After many years of being in business, entrepreneurs begin to tell themselves they know everything they need to know. This is how it all began for many entrepreneurs me included! Things somehow just worked as you were establishing your brand, getting started, building something out of nothing.

You were hustling. Working on brand recognition. You didnt have a budget, so you stayed up late and built your own website, started marketing your company on social media, got a $5 logo from somewhere overseas, ordered cheap business cards from some faceless company that charged you more for shipping than they did for the cheap cards.

But you know what? Everything looked great to you then. You were proud of the final product all of your friends and family told you it looked awesome!

But once you were done, you left it alone. You got busy building your business. You started taking care of clients, and providing customer support.

Now, years later, youre still here and all of your business is coming from word of mouth, and since you never spent any money on your website, branding or marketing before, you think this is all there is. You have no idea how much easier marketing can make it. Maybe youre content to continue hustling or maybe youre getting tired and you want to consider how your marketing could let you have some breathing room.

If youve reached a plateau and you are currently struggling to take your business to the next level you see your competitors doing things and you dont know where to begin hire a consultant, an advisor, a coach. You dont know what you dont know, and that will never change. But heres the thing there are people who can help you.
