Most companies use staff members – administrative assistants, interns, executives, salespeople – to write their websites, blogs, and other digital marketing, as well as their collateral and printed sales pieces. Many business owners get involved and write it themselves. But is this good practice?
A family-owned, St. Louis-based commercial printing company, The Advertisers Printing Company, proves you’re never too old for growth and change.

This is a truly remarkable client success story for many reasons, one being that Atomic Revenue, two PR firms, a media buyer, a creative agency, a tableau® building consultant, an internal organization of 10+ employees, and a board of directors all worked together to take Paper & Packaging Board’s marketing and educational campaign strategy to the next level. This collaboration and the objective were very different from the norm, as Paper & Packaging Board does not sell anything.

Traditionally, marketing agencies have been the go-to solution for many companies when they experience slumping sales and inconsistent revenue.

As a result, it may be challenging to know what you should focus on in a QBR and how to use the information gathered to make a real difference in revenue.
Is this a trick question? Every company needs revenue operations! But what is it exactly? It is the entire process by which a business brings in dollars to fund its existence. Although many consider revenue operations to be a function of sales and marketing, it’s this exact oversimplification that limits profitability and often proves to be detrimental for small to midsize businesses.

A common misconception of Facebook advertising is that Facebook ads are a magic machine in which you put $50 and get $500 out. It can work like this; however, as with most things, it is not a one size fits all product.
