Is your company marketing leading you into a dense forest, or...?

HERE is a link to an on-line marketing autopsy.

It has a list of quite severe questions about marketing - some of which are relevant to you and your company, some not.

1. You can copy the questions into a word document and then go through them and see which are relevant. Or

2. You can fill them out and fill in false contact details - which still gives you the summary report which is useful. Or

3. You can fill it out with real contact details and put up with the sales follow-up.

Please be warned: Giving your real contact details will result in a skilled and aggressive marketer ringing to sell you a three-hour seminar that costs $97.

Will you be skilled enough to say, "No!" I almost succumbed....

I recommend we all do at least option one as some of the questions are enlightening and relevant. And share with the group what you learn - in the marketing forum, central column.

Cheers
