If you run a small marketing firm, you know how important it is to partner with the right person at each client’s company. That person can often determine how successful or unsuccessful your marketing endeavors can be. Even the best of plans can be foiled if you choose the wrong person as your touchstone and decision-maker. Often the one who founded the business can be your greatest resource and ally in creating a marketing strategy that works. These entrepreneurs can provide thoughtful insight and true passion into creating a plan that gets results.
Here are five ways in which entrepreneurs and marketers share common ground:
1. “Outside the Box” Thinking
Many entrepreneurs have a gift for thinking outside the box, creating solutions for common problems that no one has thought of before. This can be helpful in also developing marketing campaigns that are unique and individualized.
Who best to get an inside perspective about a company from than the one person that has the ultimate passion for their business and industry? Entrepreneurs often put 110% into everything business-related including their marketing endeavors.
3. Brand Awareness
Entrepreneurs often know their brand best and are able to break it down to its most simplistic form. While some may try to over-complicate an image, the ones who started the business often have the clearest vision of what it is at the core.
4. Planning Skills
Any business that has grown to become successful has a good planner behind the scenes. Entrepreneurs are often excellent at developing a clear path for growth and following through on it. This rings true as well for marketers looking to create greater brand loyalty for their clients.
5. Appreciating the Customer
Entrepreneurs also value the customer. Like marketing specialists, they too are aware of the power the consumer has on the success of any business. They realize that the true path to growth is through them and is always on the hunt for new ways to engage with their audience.
