However, without the proper tools and knowledge, you can find yourself falling down the rabbit hole of marketing pretty quickly. Marketing without an effective plan doesn’t just waste your time and money, but can also single out your customers and slow the growth of your business. To make sure your marketing plan relates to the needs of your target audience, it’s important to first take a look at your business’s key success factors. If you have no clue what they are, don’t worry, we’ll explain below!
What is a Key Success Factor?
A key success factor refers to the critical elements that are necessary for a business, project, or initiative to succeed in achieving its goals. These factors are often unique to the specific situation and can vary depending on the industry, market, or project scope. Identifying key success factors helps businesses to focus their efforts and resources on the areas that are most crucial for achieving success. This is something that is going to take time and research to determine.  You’ll want to find out who your audience is, what your audience is looking for from your company, and what inspires them to purchase something from you.  
Marketing with Key Success Factors
Once you have identified these factors, you can use them to develop your marketing strategy. For example, if one of your key success factors is strong customer relationships, you may want to focus on building customer loyalty and engagement through targeted marketing campaigns, personalized messaging, and exceptional customer service. By identifying and leveraging your unique success factors, you can create a marketing strategy that speaks directly to your customers and positions your business or product for success in your market.
To make sure you’ve found your key success factors; look at your customer retention, how customers react to your advertising, social feelings in regards to your brand, and the media coverage (if applicable).  Look at each of these aspects and in turn make sure that they are influencing what you’re expecting.  If these things are all working and your customers are returning, you’ll know that you’ve found the right key success factors and your plans to implement there are workin
