Entrepreneur Burnout Is Real

As a business owner, do you ever feel isolated? Overwhelmed? Exhausted?

Does it ever feel like navigating your business to success is a bit like steering a small ship in the middle of a vast ocean?

Well first things first: you are not alone.

Each and every day, we speak with entrepreneurs that have their own version of the same tale. As exciting, fun, and rewarding as entrepreneurship can be, it is not for the faint of heart. As the saying goes, entrepreneurs give up working 40-hour workweeks just to work 80 (and sometimes 90, 100, or more!)

It’s not just you…entrepreneur burnout is real.

Time is at a premium because business owners have so many hats to wear. You’re focusing on building your product. Improving your service. Connecting with customers and finding a solution to make their lives easier. Suppliers, materials, people, production, contracts, customer service – it takes a ton of work to pull it all together.

And unfortunately, one of the most important pieces to the entrepreneurial puzzle often goes overlooked: marketing. Because, unlike an assembly line or distribution contract, marketing is easy to fake. Design a quick logo, throw some coupon codes together, take a couple of pics with your iPhone and BAM, you’ve got your marketing campaign ready to go.

Unfortunately, even the most seasoned business owners can sometimes fail to understand how dangerous this strategy is. Because marketing creates the relationship between your brand and your customers. It’s the first impression you make.

And don’t get us wrong…we get it! With everything else going on, business owners don’t have time to become marketing gurus on the side. To learn the nuances of creative, copywriting, design, SEO, PPC, and all the other components of launching a comprehensive marketing campaign. And odds are, if you’re bootstrapping your business, you probably don’t have the funds to hire a full Marketing team either.

If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Many entrepreneurs feel lost when it comes to executing the most effective, most up to date digital marketing tactics for their businesses. That’s why companies like Savage & Wiser exist. To fill the gap between your marketing goals and marketing results.
