We'll review the common mistakes businesses make regarding their marketing budget and talk about some of the best ways to spend your marketing budget without spending too much. We'll also cover why a healthy marketing budget is worth it in terms of ROI. 

Common Mistakes Businesses Make When It Comes to Their Marketing Budget

Many businesses don't have a clear marketing budget. They might not budget for every single marketing channel, or they might spend too much on the wrong media.

But this is key—you need to have a clear understanding of your marketing budget before you start spending money. If you're not sure what results you want or how much you should be spending, ask yourself these questions:

  • How many hours do I want my marketing team to work?

  • What are my business goals?

  • What is the cost-per-acquisition for each type of marketing campaign?

  • What are my company's current sales numbers?

  • How is my target audience defined?

Why a Healthy Marketing Budget is Worth It

With so many marketing opportunities available to businesses today, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. You need to decide what channels will most impact your business and your bottom line.

But as with all decisions, you'll only make progress by asking the right questions. You have to consider what channels best fit your business's needs, how they will help you reach your target audience, and how much money they will cost you.

It's always a good idea to start with a healthy marketing budget and see where that takes you. The beauty of spending wisely is that it doesn't necessarily mean you're limiting yourself or spending less than other companies. It just means you're making smart choices about where your money goes.

The Best Ways to Spend Wisely on Marketing

Knowing what to do with your marketing budget is essential to getting the most value out of it. You have to think about the goals you want to achieve and optimize different marketing channels for those goals.

You'll also have to decide if using a specific platform for your marketing is worth the investment. Here are some ways that you can spend wisely on marketing without spending too much:

Consider investing in content marketing. In many cases, content marketing is more cost-effective than other types of digital marketing, like PPC ads or SEO campaigns. It's a great option because it encourages customer interaction, which leads to brand awareness and new customers.

Use digital marketing services to analyze your audience further and get you started on the best marketing approach for your business.

Working with influencers can help you cash in on their audience and expand your reach in ways you might not have been able to do before. Blog reviews, social media content, and more are all ways influencers reach their audience and expose your business to new eyes.


When it comes to marketing, it's essential to spend wisely. A healthy marketing budget is more than just a cash flow issue. It's an investment in the future of your business.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
