3 Marketing Mistakes That Are Crushing Your Business

As someone who has chosen marketing as a career, hosts a podcast about marketing (Marketing School, co-hosted by Neil Patel) and owns a digital marketing agency, you may think I haven’t made marketing mistakes. You’d be wrong.

I’ve made them all, and that’s how I’ve learned to be the best possible marketer and business owner I can be. Marketing is all about experimentation; the process of failing and iterating, failing and iterating.



That being said, from my own experience working with businesses in my agency, and speaking to entrepreneurs on my podcast, I see the same three business-crushing mistakes all the time. Business owners act out the proverbial insanity of doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.

That’s why I made this video — to ensure that startup founders and CEOs know the marketing danger zones, as well as how to avoid or fix them in order to grow a thriving business.
