It’s no secret that starting up your own successful business is an extremely long, and complicated road. According to Forbes, 20% of all small businesses fail in their first year, and 70% of small businesses don’t make it to year ten. Although this may be discouraging for many entrepreneurs to hear, there is at least a consistent pattern in these failures. One of the biggest reasons small businesses fail is because there is a lack of vision and a lack of marketing plan. With so many resources available to business owners in today’s modern world, it’s almost ludicrous to run a company without any sort of brand management.
Simply marketing to your customers, however, is not enough to keep the lights on. According to Business Insider, a major flaw in many company’s marketing strategies is the ability to listen and communicate directly with their customers. Having the ability to assess the strength of your product in the market and adhere to requests is essential for building consumer relationships. 14% of small businesses fail because they neglect this aspect of marketing. This is why companies need to have a brand management strategy in order to keep their product relevant in the world.
