B2B Marketing, Tips on Spending Time Where It Matters to Save Time Later On

The term “time is money” rings nowhere in a more real sense than in the world of B2B marketing. Effectivity and productivity are considered to be saving solutions. Therefore, let’s explore tips to save you time in your business’s marketing strategy.

Spend More Time on Planning Than On Executing

The idea of spending a lot of time thinking and brainstorming about your marketing strategy might initially seem like a waste of time, but it is not. Spend more time to determine precisely what, who and how of your marketing plan. Then you will be able to build an effective and successful campaign. The metaphor of taking your time as a sniper on a rooftop, observing the target, aiming and then shooting effectively versus using a shotgun and spray your message all over the place with high odds of missing your mark completely, comes to mind.

Spend More Time on Researching Your Marketing Tools

Again, we can use the metaphorical sniper to explain this better. To do a proper job, you need the correct equipment to be successful. Adequate research on marketing tools like automatic response creators, data-analyzers, social media platforms and more will help you to save time later on. Setting these systems up effectively to run on their own takes time, but it saves you the effort later on and avoids you getting trapped in constant anxiety provoking a cycle of just doing marketing.

Spend More Time on Finding Great Content

Content is excellent if it interests your targeted audience; it is coming from a reliable source and is delivered in a language and tone which the audience associates with. It should also reflect the identity of your business. Our metaphorical sniper takes the necessary time to decide on the correct calibre ammunition to do the job and so should you.

Spend Time on Getting Organized

When your systems are set-up in an orderly manner, and your schedule is clear on what should happen when and you stick to it, you save time. Often the minutes wasted on finding ourselves in the daily activities turns into hours because it is during this time that we get easily distracted. Another comparison here can be Grandma’s pillbox. Spending 5 minutes to put each day’s medication in the correct dated box for the week, spares you seven days of wasting 5 minutes per day to search for your prescription. Being organized is vital in saving time.

Spend Time to Save Time

By spending more time on certain aspects of your marketing strategy once-off or at specified intervals, you will save more time in the constant day-to-day activities of running your business. Ideally, you want your marketing plans to run independently. Unless you are in the business of marketing, your focus should be on what you are good at and improving your service and product to remain on the edge of advancements and not be consumed with something which is not your passion and primary concern.
