When marketing a product or service, traditional brochures or collateral just won’t cut it. Why? Because consumers aren’t interested in reading about what you’re selling. They want to hear about why they should purchase, or how a product or service has been implemented successfully. They want to listen to stories.

Over the past few months, Marketing Eye has hosted hundreds of marketing workshops. There have been many reasons for that, but mostly, companies are keen to start 2019 off strong. To do that, they need to get all of their key people in one room (or on one call) and go through their business objectives, sales goals and marketing activities for the year ahead.

Imagine your sales team sitting in your office discussing the reasons why they didn't make the sales projections for the last quarter.

Furthermore, they say to you that they think your marketing is either not effective or worse, non-existent.
