How Any Size Business Can Achieve Marketing Outcomes Like a Fortune 500, With Mark Havenner

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on October 20, 2022

Consumers and stakeholders won’t work with you if your values don’t align with theirs.

Increasingly, brands and senior leaders need to be authentically associated with a cause to cut it in today’s world: they need purpose.

The challenge for communicators is to produce relevant content on the right platforms so that people can find information at precisely the moment they need it.

Mark Havenner saw the challenge and created the solution.

We must tell our audience stories that connect to their problems, engage with them, and demonstrate how we can solve those problems.

Tune in and hear Mark’s answers to questions such as:

  • Why marketing efforts require strategic thinking and segmentation of the target
  • How to develop a profile of your ideal customer
  • Best ways to get your message out
