Businesses typically make two key mistakes when it comes to marketing...
They dive straight into “doing” marketing and the doing often just focuses on comms. Comms is just a part of your marketing mix and can only be done well once you are clear about the other elements of the mix – proposition, price, promotion and channel choice.
Marketing is an investment. As with any investment it’s about getting the right return, which requires upfront thinking and planning. Any business that wants to grow sustainably and profitably needs a clear marketing strategy linked to their business goals to set the direction and call out the steps to be taken.
