For startups with small budgets, marketing tools often make the biggest impact. Online marketing is the cornerstone of any growth business, which is why I focus on online marketing every day.
However, the overall level of marketing knowledge needed can sometimes be overwhelming for startups. I recently wrote a book called Marketing Yourself (which is a great read for startups) to help people reach the next level in their marketing knowledge. It was the first marketing book I had written and the focus was on marketing knowledge you can implement in your daily life.
Let’s see how to quickly learn marketing and figure out how you can continue improving your marketing skills.
Study Marketing Charts
When studying marketing charts, look at charts that compare different metrics, and talk about the difference in ranking.
Here you can see the same industry comparison chart that I mentioned earlier in this post. The top rank of a chart has an obvious benefit, and this chart could be helpful to figure out how to get ahead in your own business.
It’s good to study chart comparison charts of certain industries or even fields of interest that interest you. The goal is to come to conclusions of the most important things to consider and then go to a board room to work on them.
