How to Run a Quick Marketing Audit?

It is better to do a few things that work, than lots of different things and spread your energy.

A quick marketing audit gives you a sense of consistency, and what is effective. It helps you see the strengths and weaknesses in your marketing activities, and plan for changes.

Marketing Audit Questions to Consider

Do your current marketing materials have a consistent look and feel?

Is the tagline and business name the same? Is the value proposition clear?

Do your corporate communications (e.g. website, brochures) explain what’s in it for your customer? Or is it all about your company?

_____________________________________________________________

What activities do you do to promote your business? (e.g. advertising, a website, blog, SEM, SEO)

Summing up

The answers to these questions give you a good sense of what is working and what can be kicked aside.

Sure, we need to try different things to see what will work best.

Remember, it’s better to do a few things really well, than lots of different things that are ordinary.

I hope this exercise is useful for your business.
