Did you make a New Year’s resolution? I didn’t, however I did realize last night I only have 6 more months left before I have my Masters In Business with a Marketing Saturation. I was working with Cindy when I looked at my schedule and came to the realization I am almost finished. This morning grabbing a cup of coffee the conversation replayed in my head and I realized it was the prompt for today’s post.
What comes next?
Now that I am almost done, what’s next (hence the resolution), we are making some plans for the company and marketing changes for our clients. We are looking at new venues to promote their books, whether the post we are putting out insight a reaction and then action. We are also looking at the graphics going out and whether they carry a message of their own.
In my last blog I asked if your posts Cognitive, Affective, Or Conative? I also had to ask the same question for the posts we are putting out. The weekly book hooks get good responses, there are comments about having more questions and being curious, which are a good thing. However, does that translate into sales? For a book does the excerpt tease the readers enough to click and grab a copy or read more? Does the excerpt end with an action for the reader to want more? Excerpts are a beautiful thing and can provide the desire to want to know more but there remember do not give away the whole story.
Then I looked at my own books and came to a very real realization that I do not market them or the company no where near enough. Which prompted another change coming for 2020, spending time on the business and my books.
So, how am I going to do right by our clients but also add in marketing for #PMInc and my books? Tools! Personalized Marketing Inc has been using Zoho Social for quite some time now. Many of our clients are also using it and it comes with a scheduling option. However, it also has other benefits such as optimal posting times, editing content for each of the networks, and the ability to monitor those networks. Then I can compare our company’s network growth based on what we posted a year ago, 6 months ago, or even last month to what we are currently putting out, inside the same platform.
Granted I will either be doing #PMInc marketing either early in the morning or at the end of the day, because our clients matter more. It is more important for us to share their material than it is to post our own. So this morning after sending out social media post for our clients, I then sat down to write the blog.
Putting our clients first is and always will be the Year Long resolution for Personalized Marketing Inc.
