Your product or service is not a good fit for most digital marketing channels.

There, I said it. Hopefully, this is not news to you.

You may have wild dreams of creating the lowest cost-per-click ad in your industry and watching the conversions roll in.

You may think that you can write transformative content that will outperform all your competitors.

You may dedicate yourself to building a viral loop into your product, turning every signup into 2 more.

In reality, one of these strategies will probably lead to most of your leads or trials. So, when the time comes to re-allocate your marketing budget, will you continue to try to convince yourself that you need to generate leads from all these separate sources?

The best marketers find a way to focus on their top-performing channels, and optimize them even further. They do not waste time by pouring money into channels that will steal their time and energy.

Here is a little visualization of what happens when you don’t focus on the channels that produce the most leads.
