If you are getting caught in the strangle-hold of perfectionism or micro-managing, you are doing both your marketing team and your business a disservice. If all the initial plans are in place, the best thing you can do is get out of the way and let your marketing do its work in the marketplace.
Marketing is not magic. It’s hard work and it works best when grounded in cold, hard reality. Here are some questions to consider before you develop, before you launch and well before you flick it to marketing (internal or external) expecting them to turn straw into gold.
Mogrify has created a unique online marketing assessment to help you. After years of experience working with B2B businesses we’ve learnt a thing or two along the way – the things that help an organisation succeed or fail. We’ve taken these learnings and developed our very own Mogrify Marketing Assessment.
Content marketing entered the online lexicon about 5 years ago. Since then, some businesses have taken it up seriously and are reaping results. Others see it as more of a buzz word and try a ‘quick fix’ or ‘set and forget’ approach hoping something will stick. The latter approach will never work.
As we move into the new financial year, after all of the fun number crunching is over (that was painful!), it’s a good time to sit back and reflect on the year that’s been. What have been the lows, the highs, the learnings? What could your business have done better, and what should you do more of this year?
It’s that time of year again. As a business owner, or as someone wearing the marketing hat in your organisation, you’re diving into your marketing plan for the new financial year and deliberating over what to include to position your business for growth.
If you’re the leader in your business, this generally results in a mild form of panic and you hiring the first person off the street who sweet talks you with a few lines about how they’re ‘the boss man’ at marketing. Before you know it, you’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars.
As all IT business leaders and marketers know, content marketing is no longer the new kid on the block and many are doing it well – i.e. it’s helping to drive regular inbound leads. However - we’ve found that if left unchecked - and if there has never been a proper strategy put in place, poor habits can slip in.
A couple of years ago, research revealed that sales and marketing teams within companies were all too often not cooperative, but competitive. Here are our top five tips to get your sales and marketing teams working together!
Customers are increasingly bringing their consumer-led expectations into their workplace - B2B interactions, and B2B organisations, need to keep up.
Our opinion on the main success drivers for an IT company operating in 2018 – we hope they help to inspire some new ideas for the year ahead!
Here is a new perspective on content marketing that you may not have considered.
