The Marketing Assassin Way

kill costs - marketing assassin blogI’ve been running with this pseudonym for two years now. But what’s it all about?

It certainly isn’t anti-marketing. In fact, being a marketer, I unapologetically see marketing as critical to long term customer satisfaction and business success. So not a cut-throat bean counter who sees it as a waste of money!

To operate like a Marketing Assassin, you need to commit to certain values to ensure you deliver cost effective, results focused marketing initiatives. Sounds simple, obvious even, but have a look at your marketing plan right now. If you have one.

Are you placating your Managing Director, Chief Executive, your biggest customer or biggest distributor instead of delivering against your business objectives?
