Too Busy for Marketing?

by Dr Greg Chapman

Business is good. You’re busy and making money. Yes, not all customers are equal. Some are better than others, but overall, you’re doing ok.

When you have time, you check the bottom line and notice that while turnover is good, profit is tightening. You look at your costs and think, if I’m busy, do I need to spend as much time and money on marketing? To be honest, its more the time than the money because you don’t really spend much on marketing.

So, you wind back your marketing to spend more time with your customers, a good thing. A better service, more customers. But more customers doesn’t mean better customers. It might instead mean smaller margin customers. More price sensitive customers. It might mean more needy customers.
