the episode

Wouldn’t it be great if your marketing could get people to buy from you? Unfortunately, as our guest Chris Hoyt explains, that’s not how marketing works.  What can marketing do?

  1. Marketing can help people know you exist.  if you are just starting out, marketing can help introduce your new company
  2. It can communicate your value
  3. It can give people an incentive to try your services or your products
  4. And most of all it can help you listen to your customers.  Armed with this information you can make better decisions.

KEY TAKEAWAY: Good marketing is like a healthy relationship with two people actively engaged in the exchange.
