Today is the birthday of the man himself, John Wayne. As a legend of the silver screen, The Duke was equally known for his grit as well as his spoken word. Few actors have the timeless quotability of America's Cowboy, and there's so many classic quotes that apply perfectly to business and online marketing in general. Here, we'll reminisce on 11 of John Wayne's greatest quotes! Happy birthday, John!
TOP 11 JOHN WAYNE QUOTES (ABOUT ONLINE MARKETING!)
1 - "That'll be the day." — Ethan Edwards in "The Searchers" (1956)
Yeah, it may be hard to imagine how some of the crazy, complex, new ways of marketing can help you grow your business. But as our clients can testify, we take online marketing to a new level, where you finally see that return on investment you've always dreamed of from your marketing budget, and you no longer have to put off your goals 'til "someday."
2 - "Well, there are some things a man just can't run away from." — Ringo Kid in "Stagecoach" (1939)
Believe it or not, this internet thing is here to stay, and it's time to stop being threatened by it and start treating it like an asset - a true full-time salesman. Unless you're optimizing your online presence and using all the awesome tools available to market your business, you're missing out on huge growth opportunities.
3 - "Young fella, if you’re looking; for trouble I’ll accommodate ya." — "True Grit" (1969)
Face it, your competition would love to win every head-to-head battle against you. There are so many battlegrounds online - websites, social media platforms, search engines, etc. - so there's immediate need to have someone working for you that can not only go toe-to-toe with your competition, but who has the expertise to win for you every single time.
4 - "Whoa, take 'er easy there, Pilgrim." — Tom Doniphon in "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (1962)
We often see businesses who really overdo it. Success comes with consistency and a high degree of excellence in execution, and those who try to run a marathon on day one will undoubtedly burn out quickly with nothing to show for their effort. We take a methodical approach that will best serve your business in the short term as well as the long term.
5 - "Where I come from we don't shoot horses when they get ornery; we tame 'em." — John Drury in "Ride Him, Cowboy" (1932)
There's no doubt you've had marketing blunders in the past, or you feel like there's a challenge in marketing your business that you can't quite get your arms around. What we want to do is saddle up and help you get the control that you need to not only avoid wasting your precious marketing dollars, but making the most of the ever-evolving opportunities that online marketing can offer businesses of all sizes.
6 - "Slap some bacon on a biscuit and let's go! We're burnin' daylight!" — Wil Anderson in "The Cowboys" (1972)
The answer to the question of when a business should be marketing, is YES! There are things that you can do by yourself today to grow your bottom line tomorrow. And of course there are tons of things we can do to help you get your business where you want it to go. Procrastinating your online marketing leads to costly missed opportunities - string together enough "I'll-do-it-tomorrows", and you'll just be left with a lot of empty yesterdays.
7 - "All battles are fought by scared men who’d rather be someplace else." — Captain Rockwell "Rock" Torrey in "In Harm’s Way" (1965)
We get it - most people have put off tackling their digital marketing so long, simply because they don't understand it or are scared of losing precious time and money. Our personal, consultative approach will give you instant confidence and will get your mind spinning with all the awesome things you can do to grow your business.
8 - "Don’t say it's a fine morning, or I'll shoot ya." — George Washington "G.W." McLintock in "McLintock!" (1963)
Your audience is looking for a specific message, and simply putting your finger in the wind won't be enough to determine which direction things are going. There's so much data available to make online marketing incredibly efficient that you never have to worry about whether you're getting the right message to the right audience. There's a reason typical online advertisements only get 2-4% of the clicks that ours get - we put your brand in front of your ideal audience and communicate the perfect message to them. That makes your new potential customers happy, and that makes you more money!
9 - "Hey, stupid! Where do you think you're going? Get back there with the herd, you muttonhead!" — John Wyatt in "Westward Ho" (1935)
Being analytical and precise is the only way to begin marketing. Deviating from your goals, or not having goals in the first place, will leave you in no-man's-land and will cause disarray in your overall branding. Know what you want to do before you start doing it, and if adjustments need to be made along the way, you'll already have a goal that's worth striving towards, making your marketing efforts far more efficient.
10 - "You left a boy out there to do a man's job!" — Cole Thornton in "El Dorado" (1966)
Here's some shameless self-promotion... we're the best at what we do. Abraham Lincoln once said "whatever you are, be a good one", and we are the best dang strategic marketers anywhere. From local businesses to national brands, our team has seen it all, and our experience is what leads us to cleaning up the messes that other marketers cause (messes that lose businesses thousands of dollars). The long-term success is certainly not child's play, so it pays big time to bring in the heavy hitters.
11 - "Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday." —Interview (1971)
Effective, aggressive marketing requires vision and agility. A "set-it-and-forget-it" mentality is what causes many failures in marketing. Don't fall into the failed line of thinking that your past success will lead you to future success. WHAT GOT YOU HERE WON'T GET YOU THERE. If you're not learning from the past and improving in the future by taking advantage of new tools and techniques, past failures and marketing blunders will simply be sunk cost. Let's turn the past into an investment, and take all the data and knowledge available to us, combine it with our years of experience, and take your business to an entirely new level. Level 11 Online Marketing is the best tool you can find to make the most of tomorrow.
