I’m writing you this from the depths of the countryside where I have been longer than I intended helping a friend with their marketing.

Why has this taken so long? Because they were given the wrong advice by a so-called consultancy who were effectively simply milking them for every penny they could get.

What have I done about it? Started from scratch.

This has meant rebranding, coming up with a strategy that all their marketing strands follow and also teaching them how to implement on a daily basis…

All of which gave me the idea for this week’s focus which is how to set up effective campaigns from the start in various aspects of marketing or tweak those that you have so that they work better for you.
