Time & Consistency Are Key to Successful Marketing
The #1 trick for marketing success is consistency.
Let's take Warren Buffett as an example here to understand the power of compounding:
Warren is the person everyone talks about when it comes to investing. He has been averaging a 20+ percent rate of return year over year.
The fascinating thing about his story is that he made more than 97% of his fortune after his 60th birthday.
There is another investor called James Simons - a real genius who has managed to triple Warren's ROI, averaging a rate of return of 66%.
Yet, he's nowhere near the fortune of Buffet because, unlike Buffett, he has not been investing for 7 decades, but for only 3,5.
The trick with compounding is not the ROI - it's time.
The same goes for marketing and content.
Can content marketing shorten your sales cycles? Absolutely.
Can content marketing bring you more customers? 100%.
But it won't solve all your problems overnight. It takes time. You have to do this day after day until the results roll in.
Finn and I have been creating content now for 2 years. And we see more and more the results of this consistency.
This is true for all marketing strategies:
If you're doing content marketing, stay with it.
If you're doing outbound marketing, stay with it.
Only the consistency of sticking to your marketing strategy will deliver the results that you need.
