Your marketing plan is a roadmap that will help you reach your goals. 

Just as you wouldn’t plan a road trip to Provo, Utah, without consulting GPS, Google Maps, or even a road atlas, you shouldn’t do marketing without a plan.

If you’re like many solopreneurs, though, you’re not sure where to get started with writing a marketing plan. That’s where this blog post comes in!

Picking Your Essential Marketing Tasks

Picking Your Essential Marketing TasksAs the Director of Marketing for your business, it’s important that you only work on essential marketing tasks.

Let me define what I mean by “essential marketing tasks.”

So many times, entrepreneurs implement too many marketing activities at the same time.

The problem with this strategy is that you are not doing any one marketing activity well. You are spread too thin, which is hard when you’re a solopreneur.

You are never sure if you’re gaining maximum power from marketing because you can’t implement any one marketing activity fully.

Think of a series of holes in the ground. You could dig 12 holes at two inches in depth – and spread your marketing around that way. Or you could dig two holes at 12 inches in depth – and go deeper into each marketing tactic.

Spoiler alert: For solopreneurs, the two deep holes will get you more profitable results.

Let’s take a look at your essential marketing tasks in this week’s marketing strategy.

How To Make Time For Marketing Every Day

How To Make Time for Marketing Every Day by Jill CelesteI hear it all the time: “Jill, I don’t have time for marketing.”

My usual response is, “What’s stopping you from marketing?” – but in my head, I am saying, “Hogwash!”

(Sorry, just keeping it real!)

Every entrepreneur has time for marketing. You may have to make the time, but the time exists.

Finding the time and prioritizing your marketing tasks can be challenging when you’re a solopreneur. I am a solopreneur too, and there are days when I feel like a chicken with her head cut off.

I’ve learned some tricks, though, and that’s what I want to share with you in this blog post.

Let’s take a look at why it’s important to market every day, how to pick the tasks to work on, how to get organized, and how to time block for maximum efficiency. Be sure to download the marketing planner PDF too (it will help you so much!). Are you ready?

Why I Started A Second Instagram Account

Why I started a second Instagram account by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comI started a second Instagram account. I am still slightly shocked as I type that sentence.

Why is this shocking?

Because I have always been a proponent of putting all of my online marketing assets in my name – from my website to my Instagram account. Everything is branded “Jill Celeste.”

And then I go and open a second Instagram account under a different name.

Why would I do this?

I outline my rationale in this week’s marketing strategy, and I hope it inspires you to do the following:

  • Give yourself permission to break the rules, even the ones you created
  • Experiment with your marketing (without attachment)
  • Take a stand for your flagship product

That’s what I have learned from this decision so far. As you grow as an entrepreneur, these lessons come in many shapes and forms. And sometimes, they come disguised as second Instagram accounts.
