“There's a guy who's spending a million dollars a month who competes nationally or globally, how could I ever compete with this person? But like you said, you don't really necessarily have to compete with that person, you just need to understand your audience, try and maybe dominate your particular area and just focus on getting yourself more visitors, more calls, more forms. And if your main goal is, let me just do better than I did the month before, I think that's really enough to shoot for.”

Key takeaways

  • Having a solid understanding of your numbers will help you monitor and track changes to your digital marketing strategy as needed.
  • Knowing your audience is can be more important than knowing your competitors at times.
  • Before investing in digital marketing and online advertising, it's critical to understand the timeline of results. Sometimes you have to put in a couple of months of effort before getting enough data to really understand what adjustments you'll need to make to be successful.
