Marketing teams are only as good as the freedom they have to be successful, and their individual desire to kick goals, and do campaigns that excited their customers and prospects/

How marketing can truly help sales

The role of marketing is to provide the platform for sales to occur. That means generating leads, warming them up and then passing them on to our sales counterparts.

How to Engage Your Consumer

Today’s consumer has more demands than ever about the user experience – they expect a more personalised, more consistent, and more relevant experience across the channels and devices that they use. This puts extra pressure on marketers to understand and deliver on these expectations, which requires an understanding of the customer and what they want.

Pivoting your personal brand

Introverts aren't known for personal brand pivots or are they? There is the fallacy that introverts don't 'show off' or 'put themselves out there'. I think this is far from the truth because as an introvert I know what it's like to know what you want and go out and get it. It's just we do it in a different way.

Everyone is throwing around jobs that they either have lined up or are hoping to score, and yet you don't really know what you should be looking for.
