Why It's OK to Learn From Your Failures

As you begin to market your business, there will undoubtedly be successes and failures. Nearly every entrepreneur has made mistakes, but what is important is that you know where you went wrong, learn from it, and correct it in the future.

“It’s fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” - Bill Gates

Steps Business Owners Should Take:

  • Admit Your Mistakes - When you are focused on the big picture, it can be hard to spot your mistakes. Keep a close eye on your marketing data and know when you need to make a change. While you might love one marketing idea, it might not be successful for your business growth. Admit your mistakes and keep an open mind!

  • Learn From Your Errors - So you made a marketing mistakes, now what? Learn from it! Take what went wrong and think about why it didn’t work for your brand and audience. Take your mistake as a learning experience and step towards better understanding your audience’s wants and needs, as well as how that fits into your business strategy.

  • Fix Your Marketing Strategy - You found the mistake and you know why it happened, but now you need to make sure that it doesn’t happen again! Think about what you can do to correct for this error moving forward. Maybe radio advertising isn’t working for your brand and you need to put your efforts towards outdoor advertisements -- or vice versa! Tweak your media plan to better address your business needs.
