Just like technology has grown and changed over time, so has customer service.
Am I an entrepreneur first, or am I a marketer?

I'm sitting at the Qantas Lounge at the Melbourne International Airport ready to board another flight to Los Angeles. I am a tad tired. 2.15am wakeup wasn't my best work, but sometimes excitement does get the best of me. Travelling for me, is exciting and part of the bigger adventure. I get to meet people that inspire me, shock me and sometimes join me on my journey as a friend, client or person "I just know".

Meeting people when you are an introvert is completely and utterly out of your comfort zone, and I know the value of being outside your comfort zone. It's one of the best things that can happen, especially if you are an entrepreneur.

This has caused marketing professionals to make vast adjustments across the board and take an unusual route to engaging the younger generation.

Finding The Right Fit

We’ve all been there, when you buy something at a cheaper price and later find out that you made a very bad choice. Whether you are buying a product or a service, quality comes at a price. The perfect storm of ‘cheap and efficient’ hardly ever coincide, and the same theory applies for marketing. Invest in a marketing team that cares about you, not your contract.

The problem we often see today is the lack of knowledge businesses have when it comes to knowing their target audience. When asked, 50% of businesses feel that they don’t know their target audience. This is a crippling statistic for the fact that one of the most important aspects of having a successful business is knowing, understanding and engaging your target audience. When businesses understand their target audience they save time and money. This is because they are focusing their marketing efforts on someone who is most likely going to buy their product, therefore they are getting the most value out of their budget.
