Guest Article: A Golf & Marketing Mash-up in Honor of the Upcoming WOCC Annual Golf Classic
By Joe Alarie of Alarie Design Associates, Inc.

Good news! You are getting on the course again for some never frustrating, always fun, always easy golfing. Glad we’re in agreement that that is how all of you play the game. As for me, not so much. I know that I have a bit of ability, but I need to work on my game. I love that feeling you get after hitting that rare shot where the ball actually goes to its intended location. That single shot will sustain me through all of the other shots I take, just chasing that feeling again.   

However, I don’t play enough to get as good as I want to be – it’s just not a priority yet. Marketing your business is the exact same. You can’t be an inconsistent marketer and grow your business the way it deserves to be grown. You must dedicate the time, energy, resources, and effort to market your business consistently. Even then, just like in golf, it’s constant learning and improving that will teach us well. Once you make marketing as big a priority as making payroll, you will see the needle move closer to the cup.

Click here to learn some of the ways you can take what you know and love about golf, and translate it into marketing your business!
