You can’t know everything and running a business is tough going. The sooner you can let go of a few things, the easier it’ll be to run your business, collaborate with colleagues and put trust in others’ knowledge and expertise. Technology is developing at such a rapid pace, as is the way we do business, that it’s impossible for us business owners to keep on top of it all, all by ourselves.
How is business changing with times? A decade ago, businesses put 80% of their time and resources into sales, and 20% into marketing. Today however, those numbers have flipped. Now it’s marketing that’s taking the lion share of all efforts. But it’s not about neglecting sales. If your marketing activities run like a well-oiled machine, you only need to put 20% into sales.
No matter how much you read and study online, there’s still stuff you don’t know and need to learn, it’s a never ending cycle. You need to come to grips with searching out the answers as and when you need them, this is because in this industry everything changes so quickly.
Here are a few signs it’s time to look at HubSpot for help…
When things are moving too quickly, and you can’t keep up
Things are changing so fast in this digital world. You think you’re all over the latest trends, but next month there’s a whole load of new ones piled up in your inbox you need to read about. As someone responsible for marketing in your business, it’s not easy being on top of it all. Often it’s too much for one person to handle. To simplify your life, call a HubSpot consultant to help you with the inbound marketing part. Free up the time to spend on other areas of your business and spread the load.
When you’re a little rusty on the tech side of things
Not all of us are tech savvy, that’s just the way we are. Unfortunately, no matter which industry you work in, technology will play a role. It’s awesome because we can do stuff now that we weren’t able to do in the past, but it also means that the technophobes out there will struggle from time to time. If you fall into this category, then getting help from a HubSpot consultant can let you concentrate on the things you’re good at and enjoy doing.
When blogs aren’t giving you the answers
Blogs are great. That’s why we write them. They give everyone with an internet connection a platform to share their knowledge. Sure you have to get passed the immense amount of rubbish on the net, but there are real nuggets of gold too, you just need to keep digging to find them. That said, you can’t find everything in a blog. When that time happens, and it will, a HubSpot coach can help you solve your problem.
When you want to be a market leader, but are out of marketing ideas
HubSpot has the potential to take your marketing game into the stratosphere. While it’s pretty user-friendly and their ongoing support is fantastic, navigating it as a first-time user can be tricky. Sure, you might get by, but are you using it to its full potential? A HubSpot consultant knows their stuff when it comes to harnessing the power of HubSpot, so let them work some magic for your marketing strategy.
