1. Ring your entire client base and see what other services you can give them in this financial year so that they can achieve their business objectives.
1. Argue, challenge and brainstorm in June and December each year about what they are going to do for marketing in the year ahead. . . and end up doing nothing.

It's Sunday, and like most Australians, I am enjoying the day, relaxing, reading the papers and eating with friends and family.
Reading The Sunday Age is always a treat, especially when I get through the paper, start to finish. It is full of interesting stories on people, places and world affairs.
For some light reading, I often pick up the Sunday Life Magazine, and flick through. Having Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover helps, as I am a BIG fan of her acting, singing and sense of style.

At Cebit this week, you can imagine my horror when I saw this well-meaning company, invest in a poorly designed banner and booth. What do you think of this banner?
Cebit was a clear example of how to waste alot of money investing in having a booth at a tradeshow and half putting it together. Here you have an opportunity to showcase your brand and value proposition to companies that will potentially be your customers. So throwing together a couple of banners is not a good idea if you want people to trust your brand and think that your company is professional and someone that they should do business with.
What's your thoughts?
