I have met entrepreneurs that are always reviewing marketing statistics to guide them in their business. And I know some who could care less about statistics and they just use marketing means and methods they believe will work, even if the stats say otherwise.
I believe that the best way is to use a “middle ground” technique. Review marketing statistics and try some that rate high, but we also need to follow our “gut instincts.”
If the marketing statistics say that a method doesn’t work, but your instincts are saying it WILL work in your business application, it does make good sense to try it and see.
I have been reviewing some major marketing statistics for entrepreneurs and businesses. I am just going to share 5 tips I have found in studying these numbers. You may want to use them in this year’s marketing strategies you will employ.

- doesn’t bring in new business,
- and/or creates do-it-yourselfers.
I will admit that blogging does take time, but I believe it is not wasted.
Creating DIY’ers? LOL!
Let me just say that if a person is actually considering doing it themselves, they will attempt it anyway. I would actually say that with a proper blogging approach, readers will be more apt to stay away from the DIY idea. Or they will try and fail and will come to you, the expert!

Just consider this statistic: 71% of consumers who have had a good social media service experience with a brand are likely to recommend it to others.
