Striking the Balance: When Good is Better than Great in Business and Marketing

We all have an innate desire to be the best at everything we do. It’s natural to strive for greatness in our personal and professional lives. However, there comes a point when we must ask ourselves: when is it enough just to be good and not great? Are there instances where “good” may be preferable to “great”? I’ll explore these questions in this blog post and provide examples from business websites and social media marketing.

Business Websites: The Case for Good Over Great

When creating a business website, going for greatness might mean having the most innovative design, cutting-edge functionality, and an extensive list of features. While these elements may sound appealing, a good website that focuses on user experience, with a clean design and fast loading time, can often outperform a great one bogged down by excessive features.

For example, a small business owner may want to create a great website with all the bells and whistles, but doing so can lead to higher development costs, slower loading times, and increased complexity. A good website, on the other hand, prioritizes the user experience, making it easier for potential customers to navigate and find the information they need. In this case, a good website can yield a higher return on investment and a better overall experience for the end user.

Social Media Marketing: When Good Content Prevails

In social media marketing, being great often means consistently creating top-notch content that captures your audience’s attention. However, this can be a time-consuming and exhausting endeavor that may lead to burnout. In contrast, a good social media strategy focuses on regular, engaging posts that achieve your marketing goals without draining your resources.

Consider a small business owner who wants to maintain a great presence on multiple social media platforms. They may spend countless hours crafting the perfect posts, leaving little time for other important tasks. By creating good content instead, they can strike a balance that allows for sustainable success in their marketing efforts.

Finding the Right Balance

The key takeaway is that context matters when determining if being good or great is the right choice. It’s crucial to evaluate each situation and consider the needs of your audience, your available resources, and your long-term goals. Striving for greatness can sometimes lead to unnecessary expenses and decreased efficiency while focusing on delivering good quality can be more effective and sustainable.

In conclusion, while wanting to be great at everything is natural, sometimes being good is enough or even better. Recognize when to prioritize and when to give yourself a break, and enjoy the journey to success. You can achieve sustainable success in business and marketing by finding the right balance between good and great.

Product Launch Essentials for Start-Ups & Small Business

If your a start-up, small business, or a one-man show, you may not have an enormous budget to launch a product like say Microsoft or Apple. Never spend more than what you can afford to lose or gain a new customer. Below are few essentials for a successful product launch with limited budget:

  • Social Media. Set up a refresh of your Facebook page, LinkedIn & Instagram company page. Send out Twitter product launch tweets (schedule tweets 24 hours before launch date), create a LinkedIn group, create a webinar (webinars are huge right now, and they are the easiest way to connect with your audience). If your in retail, use Groupon. If you have a physical location your customers frequent, utilize geolocation tools like Foursquare or Gowalla. In addition to a review site, Yelp also offers “check-in” offers and “deals” that are similar to what Groupon & Living Social offers. Use these services to reach out to new, potential customers.
  • Website refresh. Create new product-specific landing pages, feature photos (.png’s), blog content, online collateral. Adjust and enhance your website meta tags/keywords to reflect new product information.
  • Review copies. Reach out to influential bloggers + online publications. Send them copies 1-2 weeks before launch with an embargo date. Make sure you have some type of “blogger relations” program at least 6 months before launch. Relationship building with bloggers is key. Get to know them, comment on their blogs, reach out to them and introduce yourself.
  • PPC campaign. Stick to one advertising platform like Google Ads, Amazon, or Facebook ads.
  • E-mail marketing. Consider offering a pre-order for your new product, exclusive only to e-mail recipients. Or, offer a sneak peek at the new product before it’s released to the public. Use Constant Contact software and automate your email campaigns.
  • Press Release. If you have some budget, use Business Wire. A cheaper alternative is PR Newswire. These PR distribution companies now are fully automated and support Social Media + mobile (iPad, smartphone) tools.
  • Work your ass off. Rather then using a ton of money, use your time, energy and creativity!

Its crucial to measure your results after your launch. Go back and re-double efforts on which of the above techniques are working and abandon the ones that are not working.

Social Media Trifecta for Small Business

If you’re like a typical “small business”, you’re looking for new ways to bring in customers. My advice = Use Social Media. Most “small business” have little or no resources to hire a full time Social Media manager. If this is the case, then my recommendation would be to concentrate only on these 3 Social Media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Yelp). Take an hour a day (or night) and network/add content to these Social Media sites.


This is a great site and becoming a force in small business marketing. Yelp is your chance to give customers the scoop, right on your Yelp business page. Once logged into, build out a rich profile under the “Business Information” tab. You can share the history behind your business and what you do best. Also, add a little something about yourself and your employees so that Yelp users can get to know you. Let people know your business is on Yelp. Add a button (Yelp link) to your email signature file, website, and all marketing collateral

Get photos of your business up on Yelp, ASAP. If your business is a restaurant, add a picture of your menu. Own a boutique? Add a shot of your great new merchandise. It’s a simple, fun and effective way to illustrate your story. Finally, ensure a photo of your storefront is included so people know what to look for when they decide to visit you offline and in person.


Twitter is also for small business owners looking to build new local customers. To sign up for a twitter account, go here The first thing to do is set up a proper “Profile”. Make sure you fill out your twitter profile to include your website URL, business phone #, and specific keywords related to your business or service that will help potential people to follow you. Follow people in your field of business such as peers, customers, and competitors. Follow your competitors followers as well. Run twitter contests, give away special online twitter discounts or offers. Always include “Add Follow Me on Twitter” in email signature file, website, and your other social media accounts.

Make sure you don’t mix your twitter business account with a personal account, keep them separate as well as the messages. Engage in related business conversations. Look up conversations that will help drive customers to your twitter account using keywords in twitter search. DO NOT go overboard and follow too many people that follow you or you will risk looking like a spammer. If you have a blog on your small business website, always reference a new blog post on your twitter account. Stay with it everday and be patient, the ROI will pay off in due time. Retweet others relevant to your field or business. This helps establish credability and you will pick up more followers.


Get on Facebook now! Facebook pages tend to work better for businesses while Facebook “groups” do well for non-profits, interests and causes. If you’re a one-person business, rather than creating Facebook pages for your name, consider setting up a Facebook page for the company, product or service name and add keywords to it. People may be more likely to subscrbe to your Page (become a “fan”) when they see the topic that follows the company name.

Content is king for a Facebook business page. Facebook is a great place to share tips on how to do things faster or more effectively with your product or service. Post “how-to” videos or screencasts. Announce free upcoming events or webinars. Mention if you or someone from your business will be attending an event for a potential meet up. Its always a good idea (content-wise) to import your twitter feed and business blog posts.

Make sure you use Facebook to connect with your existing customers AFTER they’ve already bought from you – rather than trying to use Facebook to mine for leads. This is the path of least resistance. Since they already know you, they are more likely to interact with your page – crucial for organic growth on Facebook.
