- Don’t have a senior level marketer on staff

Why should a small business work with a marketing coach or mentor?
Most small business owners have a lot of responsibilities. Their expertise may lie in finance, technology, sales or operations. Some may have actual marketing experience. However when it comes to marketing your small business online, the complexities may be too much to handle with all the other responsibilities.
Having a marketing coach or mentor can guide you in the right direction. As a partner in your success, they can:
- Help you create your marketing strategy with an outside view of the plan;
- Direct you towards working on the right things right now;
- Hold you accountable for making marketing a priority;
- Help you navigate the ever-changing complexities of the digital marketing world;
- Give an outside perspective;
- Provide up to date details around current trends and technologies;
- Be a direct contact for you to ask questions.
How do I know if I need coaching, consulting, or both?
Many businesses will need both marketing coaching and consulting at times. For daily execution, coaching can help you stay focused on getting results. For larger projects, such as website development or pay per click advertising, you may be better off engaging an expert to do the work and deliver results.
