In the digital marketing world, smart budgeting is key. Larry Bailin, best-selling author and CEO of Single Throw Marketing, stresses that “minimizing your digital marketing targets is the number one way to maximize your digital marketing budget.”
Marketing today is no longer a hit-or-miss affair. Gone are the days of endless spending and hoping for the best. If you’re not Coca-Cola, you probably can’t afford to aim for every possible customer. Instead, you need to focus. Here’s how:
- Understand Your Customer: Break down the perfect customer. Their age, sex, income level, marital status, job function, affinities, hobbies, and more. Knowing who’s best suited to your product or services can save you a fortune.
- Find Your Unique Path: In a competitive market, it’s crucial to find your unique opportunity. This requires flexing your marketing muscles to discover less crowded paths to your customers. With data analysis tools like Google Trends, these opportunities become clear.
An example comes from one of Bailin’s clients, a law firm specializing in DUI cases. By swapping the term “DUI Attorney” for “DWI Lawyer”, they reduced their cost-per-click by 50%, while increasing searches by 80%.
- Craft Irresistible Offers: Misaligned messaging can often drain your budget. It’s not enough to be seen; you need to be chosen. Ensure your messaging connects problems to solutions, speaks to pain points, and showcases your unique value.
In summary, don’t focus on simply maximizing a budget. Instead, focus on maximizing your return on marketing dollars. Don’t let budget limit your opportunity, but let opportunity make your budget limitless.
