Marketing and Communications- this is not, we repeat, rocket science, much as it sometimes sends us into a corner scratching our heads and mumbling, “what is this thing called marketing?” Our definition of marketing is “tell people what you’ve got in the clearest way you can, back it up with solid products or services with a plan to support your customers from presale through to happy customer and beyond.
Who you are, and how others see what you are up to is a serious matter. Everyone reacts to a good name, a clever tag line or a mission statement that evokes emotion.
