Many full time marketing professionals find it difficult to pin their clients down to one comprehensive marketing strategy that will help them solidify a marketing plan. Often a lot of time is wasted switching gears after the marketing plan has been agreed upon and then changes get made mid stream.
This causes several problems for the client and the marketing firm:
• A plan never has a chance to succeed.
(Very seldom does a marketing plan succeed in the first few weeks, it takes time to be successful)
• A lot of hours are wasted designing and building marketing materials that often don’t get used.
• Just because an idea worked for somebody else it may not be right for you
• Frustration is felt on both the client and marketing professional’s sides of the table
• Thousands of dollars are wasted with little results
