Marketing is engaging and setting credibility and managing how people experience your brand. In order to have a brand, you need to engage. Digital will be the biggest channel and opportunity to engage. Make sure to leverage the tools in front of you.

All marketing that happens in your company will line up behind the vision, whether you like it or not. Take the time to write your vision down. As the organization grows people will defer to the vision as they are writing content, talking to prospects or potential partners.

Why Should you Care About Marketing

70-90% of buying and selling happens before your buyer is in front of you. If you are not participating in the conversations via digital channels, someone else is and it is a lost opportunity.

  • If your marketing engine works, fewer costs will be incurred in other functions like Sales.
  • Marketing works – ask yourselves how many times have you bought something off of an ad.

Caring about Marketing is good for business, don’t treat it as something optional. There is a direct impact and ROI!
