The marketing department you don't have
Marketing is one of those things businesses know they need,
but don’t have the time to do.
Businesses see marketing as needing constant attention, producing lots of nice looking things which don’t appear to drive sales. Marketing spend must translate into sales revenue. Not every marketing campaign will result in a sale, but every action should move customers through the sales funnel.
Marketing to fill up your glass
A consistent, measured, marketing campaign pays off in the long run: it takes time and a targeted approach to build a brand, but every step you take adds more liquid to the glass. Each action you take from a phone call to an exhibition will have an effect on your business and can’t been seen in isolation.
