Golfing Lessons That You Can Apply To Your Club’s Marketing
As golfers we are always learning (or sometimes re-learning) lessons which help improve our games. The good thing is that many of same principles can actually be applied to you club’s marketing. Read on to discover the golfing lessons that you can apply to your club’s marketing.
Every golfer knows the excitement that comes from a shiny new driver, and the high hopes it brings to your game, only to be disappointed in not seeing the expected improvements. The same goes for your club’s marketing. Golf clubs are targets for companies who are looking to sell space in their publications, websites and social media pages. Many of these companies can boast about the ability to promote your club to their extremely large readerships or online following. At first glance, this may seem like an attractive option. However the truth is that the companies will have a very difficult job proving that they can provide any return for your investment. Many will have little or no interest in whether or not your advert is actually successful. After all, their primary goal is to sell their product. Before you spend any of your marketing budget, make sure you have evidence of significant returns for your club.
Just Because Something Has Worked In The Past Doesn’t Mean It Works Now
How many times have you headed to the course with the same tried and trusted swing thought, only to spend your day looking for golf balls or hacking out of the trees. One of the most common phrases heard in golf club committee meetings is “That’s the way it has always been done”. This can be a slippery slope to obsolescence. Updating your marketing practices may be a daunting task, but it is necessary to ensure they continue to provide excellent results for your club.
Work with a pro to fix your issues
Many golfers believe that the solution to their swing issues can often be found by beating buckets of balls on the range. However, at some point, there is often a realisation that there is a need to book a lesson or club fitting instead.
When it comes to your club’s marketing there is not the same option to aimlessly look for a solution. Budget restrictions and the pressures placed on a golf club manager’s time means that a clear and effective marketing strategy is essential. Working with a marketing agency, especially one who specialises in the golf industry, is the best way to come up with a plan that utilises your marketing budget in the most effective way and delivers consistently excellent results for your clubs.
