Don’t Market to Everyone
This is a mistake that many smaller businesses make, but this can actually harm your brand instead of helping it. You will run the risk of annoying people with ads that market an item they don’t need or relate to. In this way, overreaching your net can tarnish your brand’s name. On top of it all, you’ll waste money in the process.

Marketing to Your Target Demographic
Once you have all of this information, we advise doing research on companies that sell similar products, or that have a similar target audience as you brainstorm marketing strategies.
We also recommend utilizing social media and Google Ads to ensure that your advertisements are being seen by your demographic.
Earlier, we discussed using the right tools and marketing strategies to garner the attention of your audience. To narrow down the plethora of marketing tools at your disposal, ensure that you perform A/B testing your marketing collateral. This will help you better determine which strategies get clicks, and which ones to nix!
