Great tips, Tom. I know I've made each of these mistakes at one time or another within my business. Thankfully, I'm much more conscious of the actions I'm planning and I have a specific purpose now for every move I make. So much better than flying by the seat of your pants. Thanks for sharing your insights with us.

Hi Tom,

Yep, these are the big ones. That's not to say your marketing will work perfectly even if you manage to avoid these things. Don't beat yourself up if you're just starting out and have little experience marketing yourself or your business. You'll learn by trial and error, but definitely try to avoid these obvious problems to save yourself some grief. Thanks so much for sharing this great advice with the BizSugar community.
