As consumers, we encounter countless pieces of marketing and advertisements on a daily basis - estimates range from 3,000 to nearly 10,000! Ads are everywhere, meaning that the marketing you do is competing with hundreds, thousands, and possibly even millions of sources attempting to target the same people that you are. This makes it even more difficult to leave a lasting impression.
Business has always been something that benefits from a close professional relationship. A relationship like this can be challenging to accomplish, however, as it usually requires some deliberate and meaningful action by the business.

As we’ve discussed before, marketing best practices state that utilizing your marketing to touch upon your audience’s pain points a total of 27 times will likely result in them signing on. While onboarding new clients is indeed a good thing, it is even better to retain them after their initial service has been completed. After all, it’s hardly worth all the trouble to claim a new client just to have them leave after one deal.
We’ve all been there. You're excited to begin working with a new client, only to find out a little bit down the road that the client's needs don't exactly align with your services. Your team then goes out of the way to help them to the best of your ability and, as much as the client appreciates all your attempts to help, you just can't get past the fundamental differences between their needs and your offering. Ultimately, you end up parting ways with nothing to show for all their hard work. Well, guess what? You can end this problem easily, with good marketing.
