Become a Marketing Jedi: 11 Ways to Rise Above the Competition

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Table of Contents

In the words of Yoda, “Do or do not. There is no try.” In marketing, this means that there are many things you have to do to rise above the competition and be successful. However, it’s easier said than done. The following blog post will walk you through 11 ways marketers can become a Jedi and dominate their industry!

Create valuable content

This is probably the most important thing you can do as a marketer. No one will bother reading it if you don’t create valuable content. Figure out what your audience wants and give it to them in an exciting way. It is an obvious one, but it’s essential. Content marketing is the best way to increase your traffic and brand awareness. People might not remember what they read on your site (unless you’re a news organization), but they will never forget how much value that information gave them.

You can create great content by writing about industry trends, using infographics to explain an idea, creating short videos about your product or services, and more.

Create an ebook or some form of content that will help your audience.

Make it easy to access and share.

The more people see your great content, the better off you’ll be as a marketer. Make sure they can easily find all of this information online by linking everything together through social media campaigns and on your website (if you have one). You can also embed videos and infographics on your website.

If you make it easy for people to share your content, they will be more likely to do so. This is a great way to increase your reach and get in front of new audiences. Plus, you’ll build up some valuable backlinks along the way.

Be original marketing Jedi

Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t copy other people’s work, but don’t be scared if someone else is doing something similar to you either. Instead, use it as motivation for why you need to keep going and do even better! 

Stay up to date with trends

Technology and marketing are constantly evolving, so you need to stay on top of the latest trends if you want to succeed. Of course, this doesn’t mean following every trend that comes along, but knowing which ones are worth paying attention to. 

Be a good listener

One of the best ways to learn about your audience is listening to them. Pay attention to what they’re saying on social media, in comments, and in surveys. Then, take this feedback and create better content and products. 

Not everyone is going to like what you do, and that’s okay! Just make sure you’re listening to constructive criticism and using it to improve your marketing strategy. Don’t get discouraged by negative comments – use them as motivation to work even harder on making your business a success.

Marketing can be a frustrating and challenging process, but it’s worth it in the end. Keep your head up, stay motivated, and always remember that the only person who can hold you back is you. So go out there and show the world what you’re made of!

Use data wisely

Analytics are essential for understanding your audience and interacting with your content. Ensure you’re tracking the right metrics and using that data to improve your marketing plans.

Don't sell to people who aren't ready to buy yet

This is a mistake that we always see from marketers, new and old alike, don’t just sell stuff for the sake of selling it! People have bought into your brand because they trust you, so if you start pushing sales too soon, then they will just leave. Instead, wait for the right time to make your offer, and they will be much more likely to buy-in.

Marketing is a lot like playing the waiting game. You get your shot at 100% when you get to make that initial sale, but after that, it becomes much more complicated and requires way more work than many marketers realize. So instead, your goal should be to turn marketing into a long-term relationship where you are constantly making offers and providing value so that they are more likely to buy when the time comes.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you should never spam people with your offers. This will only push them further away and make it difficult for you to sell anything in the future. Instead, try providing value through things like blog posts, social media updates, or even just by being a helpful resource. If you can make them see that you are someone who is always looking out for their best interests, they will be much more likely to buy from you in the future!

Keep learning

You can never know too much about marketing, so keep educating yourself if you want to stay top of your game. Learn from mistakes and other people’s success stories as well! Don’t be afraid to ask for help or guidance either.

Be authentic and humble

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of being a successful marketer, but don’t forget to stay authentic and humble. People can see through false bravado, so just be yourself and let your success speak for itself.

Stay organized

This one is essential if you’re juggling multiple projects at once. Having a sound organizational system will help keep you on track and avoid stressful situations. Delegate and automate when possible. This is especially important if you’re short on time. Delegating tasks to others and automating specific processes will help you save time and energy. 

Be a good team player

No one can do everything alone, so it’s essential to be a good team player. Work with your colleagues to achieve common goals, and you’ll be a success!

Get rid of the bad habits

Last but not least, get rid of any lousy marketing habits that you have now, so those old ways aren’t holding you back from becoming a Jedi master marketer. If they’re helping your business, grow then hold on to them, but if it’s just cluttering up your process, then it’s time to let them go!
