The economy is in a deep economic recession. It's something companies en marketers have to get through, it's something businesses have to deal with. A recession also offers opportunity: it's when things get rough that people, companies and marketers are forced to critically reflect on what they're doing.
Sales figures are under pressure, and with it so are marketing budgets. Accountability now plays a more important role than ever while attention for existing clients is top priority. Richard van Hooijdonk, travelling professor, created 16 free rules that can be used to face the economic recession. These rules enable companies and marketers to take a critical look at your current approach, cleaning up your business accordingly.
Following these rules strengthens marketing, differentiating from those who don't act upon the current economic climate. The rules are based on his 'The New Marketing Cycle' model, as well as years of experience with optimization, innovation and start-up companies.
