IMPROVE YOUR MARKETING STRATEGY AND MESSAGING
If you’re looking for a way to gain a better understanding of your business and marketing strategy, conduct a S.W.O.T. analysis.
S.W.O.T. is an acronym for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. By recognizing both positive and negative factors that affect your business, you can compare your business to the competition and use the results to improve your marketing strategy and messaging.
Here are a few guides to keep in mind when creating your S.W.O.T. analysis:
- S. – Strengths describe the positive attributes to your organization, such as an experienced team, reputation, patented products, lifetime warranty, and established customer base.
- W. – Weaknesses are factors that are within your control that reduce your competitive edge, such as poor location, inferior products, lack of technology, or limited resources.
- O. – Opportunities refer to external chances for your business to grow and prosper. Opportunities can include market growth, lifestyle changes, or the ability to offer greater value that will create a demand for your services.
- T. – Threats include external factors beyond your control, such as competition, political decisions, economic downturns, consumer trends, or government regulations.
After completing your S.W.O.T. analysis, you should not only work to improve your weaknesses but also ensure your marketing materials highlight your strengths.
