Important: A Note About Testing & Measuring

The greatest business people and marketers are not necessarily the smartest or most innovative. Most simply understand the concept of testing and measuring.

When you are testing and measuring, there is no failure (except the failure to record your results and analyse them). Every step brings you one step closer to the right formula, and the right approach.

If you approach your marketing expecting everything to work first time, you’ll be bitter and twisted when you discover it doesn’t. You may give up before you should.

Remember this: marketing has certain rules, but it’s still largely trial and error. You give it your best guess, then find out for sure.

It’s essential that you meticulously record every result. It’s extra work, but you’ll be glad when you have a marketing strategy which you know will produce results. That confidence only comes from testing and measuring.
