#RunMarketingBetter

Better marketing performance is a journey.

Today, we know that in order to do marketing, we must run marketing.

But this is not a one-time exercise. As marketers, we all have ROI in our sights. Getting there is the work we put our hearts into every day.

No two paths are alike.

Each marketer and organization is unique, and the curves in the track look different for everyone. But whether you’re just starting out on your path to better marketing performance, or are already head down and in the zone, there’s always something you can do better.

Everyone can go from status quo to better.

What’s the next thing you can do to take to take your organization to the next level? What’s the next step that will make you, as a marketer, feel more confident that your contributions count? What will you do next in your journey?

“My advice for marketers who want to run marketing better would be to understand what kind of questions do they need to answer. What do they need to do to get to those answers? They can also research other companies and see what they have done that’s made them successful in being able to answer questions and make better decisions.”
