Thinking with the end in mind

You may have a company that is just starting up, you may have a company that is well established but needs a new marketing campaign. Whatever your experience with business, marketing or marketing agencies, we see the same problems crop up with many companies that contact us. They simply don’t have an end game in mind, they think “We probably should be doing some kind of marketing” but haven’t got a plan in mind. Here are a few that we frequently see:

  • They don’t have any concrete objectives or goals they want to achieve at the end.
  • They don’t know what their budget is (or any idea of a realistic budget in mind).
  • They don’t have a time scale.
  • Their expectations may be too high for the amount of time and money they are willing to spend.

Now, this is not me griping about clients, and complaining about working, we love what we do (although sighs are frequently echoed around the office). This is just a little guide that will (with any luck) help companies utilise marketing agencies to their full capability and help grease the wheels to a mutually beneficial relationship. At the end of the day marketers are happiest when their client is happy!
