7 Deadly Marketing Sins by Ian Rheeder

Some of us just keep doing the same things, and expect improved results, while others believe we just need to work much harder. Rather work smarter by discovering the most deadly marketing & sales pitfalls, and indulge yourself in the 7-deadliest solutions. Most business decision makers are committing some (if not all) of these ‘sins’ without realizing the the permanent damage they are already causing their organisation.

Lose The Mission Statement … You don’t believe it anyway by Jacques de Villiers

Many organisations pay lip service to their mission statement and water it down so much so that they become a two-dimensional version of their full potential. They’ve lost the ability to connect at a real level with their employees, suppliers, clients and potential clients. People are yearning to do business with authentic companies. Learn how to tap into your organisation’s authentic core and to tell its story in such a way that it taps the emotional reservoir within each persona involved in the organisation. And, get your employees to internalise your story and spread it in word and deed. Once your organisation truly connects with its audience, watch the alchemy begin … happier employees, more clients and more sales.
