You’ve heard the saying… Paralysis by analysis.
We’ve all been there.
The question is how do you know what will give you that ROI you’re looking for?
Maybe you’re sitting at the computer wondering what and when to post to get the most engagement.
Or you’ve even had a few unsuccessful campaigns and you’re just not sure what you’re doing wrong.
Or maybe you have so many marketing ideas but you’re not sure how to take them from idea to reality.
Perfectionism affects about 1 in 3 people, and it’s on the rise. It can prevent so many brands from reaching their full potential for fear of failure or judgement.
Whats worse than that?
Doing nothing at all, and learning nothing in the process.
There are 3 things to remember…
There will never be a perfect time
You never know if it works until you try it
Always give authentically
Before all else, consistency is key.
It’s about nurturing your relationship with your community, and keeping your brand top-of-mind.
Make sure your marketing material is not about you, it’s for your tribe. Add value to their day and they will thank you with engagement, loyalty, organic growth and sales.
