5 T’s of A Marketing Expert (A Non Comprehensive List)

There are many important components to marketing success.  I recently had my first $3,300+ revenue day by applying several tactics I could sum up in 5 Ts.  I’m not a fan of writing too much and I know you don’t like reading flowery articles, so the following are the summary points:

Techniques – Find sources of arbitrage–opportunities where you can make a margin.

Technology – Know how to do it and/or finding people to help.

Testing – Test, test, and test.  Step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to learn.

Tracking – Measure your results or you may be wasting your time testing!  If you don’t put in at least some measures to track your success, in my opinion, you’re wasting your time.

Tweaking – Once you find something that even partially works , analyse it and find ways to improve your marketing.
