SMART GOALS for smart marketing!

Unlock Marketing Success with SMART Goals

At INKgesteld, we believe in the power of SMART goals to propel your marketing strategy towards unprecedented success. Let’s delve into the SMART framework and discover how it can transform your objectives into measurable achievements:

What is SMART?

1. Specific: Set clear and well-defined goals. Instead of vague aspirations like “increase sales,” aim for precision: “boost online sales by 20% within the next quarter.”

2. Measurable: Quantify your goals. For instance, “gain 1,000 new email subscribers” is measurable, while vague objectives like “improve brand awareness” lack a concrete metric.

3. Achievable: Ensure goals are realistic and attainable. Instead of shooting for the stars, aim for a 10% increase in website traffic, making your objectives feasible and reachable.

4. Relevant: Align goals with your overall marketing strategy and business objectives. For example, if launching a new product, a relevant goal could be “generate buzz and interest through social media.”

5. Timely: Assign deadlines to your goals. Instead of generic objectives like “increase social media followers,” set a deadline: “gain 500 new followers on Instagram by the end of this month.”
