Why you must measure your marketing

Spending time on marketing activities that aren’t working for you is a drain on your time, and your bank balance. Knowing how your marketing is performing allows you to:

  • Stop doing the marketing that isn’t working, saving you time and money.
  • Invest more in what you know is working, generating more leads and more growth for your small business.
  • Identify the marketing channels that bring you your Ideal Clients, so you can focus on that activity.
  • Set better growth targets for your business, based on facts, not gut feelings or desires
  • Commit marketing budgets because you are more confident it will deliver.

What should you measure?


How many leads you get from each marketing activity?


How many leads you need to generate a sale


What is the return on investment from each marketing channel?

Without these, you cannot make the right decisions about what marketing to continue and what to stop.
