I wanted to start off this post by making a comparison. I believe that hiring a marketing consulting is like hiring a personal trainer to help you get in shape. They hold you accountable. A personal trainer will make sure you eat healthy and are regularly working out. A good trainer will provide you support and guidance in doing the correct exercises to get you the maximum results in the least amount of time. A marketing consultant will also hold you accountable for the marketing tactics you are implementing in your business. They will ensure you have a strategy and are regularly executing tactical efforts to achieve your marketing goals. But then, I thought no that’s kinda too obvious. But is it?
The two are really quite similar in that both the exercise trainer and the digital marketer have specific knowledge and expertise that is sought after. For the most part they love what they do and they submerge themselves in their industry. They want the best for their clients. Their client’s results are a direct measurement of their own ability. The results they get for their clients are measurable in many ways.
Whether you need to get in shape or get your business in better shape it’s vital to hire the professionals that are trained specifically in the field that you are not.
The health of your business or your body are the results of not doing something. Create change today by hiring someone who knows what you don’t know and does what you don’t do.
