Just before you scoff at the idea (yeah! we’ve heard it before), the statistics will tell you that most entrepreneurs start off with a bang and end without one.

Reasons; they never took good advice seriously (or never got one!). Here are a few simpletons which when followed to the core lead to a grand marketing success.

1. Plan, plan, and plan: They say if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. True! Vision and plan are the path breakers to success. They are the foundations on which your business will thrive. If you have a partner or partners, ensure that you plan and ideas trickle to them.

2. Reach out to your audience: Social media is the buzz these days and there is no reason that should stop you from using it top reach out to people, your prospective audience. Also, you could investigate a little and find out what your competitors are doing on different social platforms.

3. Focus on building brands and personalities: A successful business is all about brand. You sell a brand and people buy your products because you are a loved brand. If you are a new business, focus on building a good brand name.

4. Create an elaborate content strategy: Social media interactions, brochures, leaflets; everything needs great content to go with it. So have it ready before you jump into marketing your company.

5. Measure your ROI: Finally, don’t just go about pumping money into your venture without some sort of benchmarking of your ROI. Unless your expenses fall in line with your expected revenue, you are most likely going to fail.
