    Performing a marketing audit is crucial to ensure the success of any company. It is a strategic examination of a business's marketing strategies, goals, and activities to easily identify key issues and areas for improvement. We have a free Marketing Audit ready for your download here:

    The Ultimate Marketing Questionnaire

    Performing a marketing audit can help you:

    • Increase your new customers and leads
    • Increase customer retention
    • Increase conversion rate
    • Increase transactions
    • Increase sales frequency
    • & more!

    Our marketing audit is not just focused on marketing strategies, but your lead strategy as a whole, and asks questions such as:

    • Are you utilizing beneficiary relationships with other businesses?
    • Could you host any informational or collaborative events?
    • How are you educating your clients so they benefit from the maximum value of your product?
    • How many times per year do you touch base with your clients, and are they meaningful touch bases or could they be improved?

    These are just a few of the many questions included in our audit. A marketing audit will allow you to think about all of the 4P's in the marketing mix (Product, Price, Promotion, and Place) and how you can create an effective strategy that combines all 4 P's. If you'd like to learn more specifics about each of the 4P's and how to incorporate them into an overarching marketing strategy, check out our blog post: The Marketing Mix and How to Develop the Right Strategy
