Setting marketing goals is like driving a car. When we drive our car, we have a destination in mind. If we don't, we might as well ask ourselves, "why are we driving?".
This is the same concept we can apply to setting our marketing goals. If we are not setting any tangible and specific goals in marketing, we may as well be 'driving to nowhere'.
How do we know what is working, what is performing? Are we working well? Is our marketing working?
If I had a dollar for every time someone told me their work was too boring to make videos for, I’d be a trillionaire. It can be difficult to think of engaging marketing campaigns while staying on brand. It doesn't seem like professionalism and creativity mesh well together.
2019 proved to be a pretty monumental year for Refuel Creative. It was only our second full year in business but saw successes, achievements and of course the occasional hiccup along the way.
When I started this business, I underestimated the value of a lot of formal structures. Things like vision and mission statements and documented processes seemed unnecessary when working from home. My dogs were my colleagues. They didn't care about values as long as they got their food and a scratch behind the ear.
