It’s not every day that you get to head down to the beach for an hour and enjoy the sounds of the ocean, the sun beaming on your skin and the fresh air that has a salty scent.

3 Things that you need to know

I stayed up late last night, thinking about my clients companies, what value they bring to the market and also about Marketing Eye.

Steve Jobs does everything with 3 sound bites. So think about your company and write out a list of 3 things that people need to know about your company that is all encompassing.

Marketing Eye is in franchising phase 1 and as such, when we talk to potential franchisees and describe our view on them taking up a localised franchise we explain it like this:-
  1. We don’t except industry standard – if we are not better than that, then we shouldn’t be consultants advising clients what to do
  2. We focus on small business growth – end of story
  3. Our experienced team will remind you why owning your own business (a Marketing Eye Franchise) is the greatest reward for having a successful career in marketing.

A Marketing Eye Franchise is…the great reward to a successful marketing career – now doesn’t that have a nice ring. Ding Ding.
