Entrepreneurs "Do it Yourself" Marketing Month – June 2024

Entrepreneurs “Do it Yourself” Marketing Month is celebrated throughout June across the United States. The goal of this initiative is to stimulate small business owners to promote their brands by creating their own marketing campaigns, without the need for an expert marketing team. The idea is for entrepreneurs to take the month of June to focus on their publicity and outreach and make their own plans to improve it.

History of Entrepreneurs "Do it Yourself" Marketing Month

Since ancient times communities have found many different ways to profit from the things they produce, whether it’s products resulting from farming or ranch practices, cooking, baking, or even selling things made out of hobbies or entertainment, such as painting or sculpting. With the reach of the internet and new ways of making money coming around, there has been a huge wave of entrepreneurs who build their businesses from scratch. These people are owners of what we call small businesses, and fight every day to make sure their product is seen and bought.

The struggles of owning a company often challenge small business owners; however, very few of them have a partner or a team to share the burden with, which makes it all a lot more difficult. Owning a business involves not only making the product, and following its demand, but preparing the economical outlines, buying materials, transporting, and marketing, among many other jobs. That’s one of the reasons why entrepreneurs have set June aside to focus on marketing initiatives that they can easily do on their own.

There are a few main points in marketing that should be considered when developing a marketing plan for a product or company. It’s important to keep in mind that what you’re selling has a target audience, located in a certain region, that desires your product for a reason. These are the three W’s of marketing: Who, Where, and Why. By making sure you have all of these concepts clear, your campaign will likely succeed.
