Marketing Know-How

This knowledge-base is part of our ongoing effort to provide a complete library of information on what the small businessmen needs to know about marketing. ?Shorter articles as well as time-sensitive postings, material for clients, etc., can be found on our blog.

We know being small business owners ourselves just how busy you are. Not every entrepreneur is a marketing genius themselves, but it is difficult to flourish and prosper without good marketing. Actually, we like to say: You know your business. We know marketing. Together, we make a?marketing genius for your business.

You probably don't have the time nor perhaps the inclination to become marketing experts yourselves. You don't have to be. You do need to know enough not to be a sucker when you buy marketing services.

It is to our benefit to have you educated enough to recognize good marketing when you see it. It is to your benefit and ours for you to know enough about marketing to do a competent job of purchasing marketing services.
