Know your segments
This is one of the most basic rules of marketing. If your marketing does not break down your approaches by segments, it is not as effective as it could be. In order to develop solid plans and achieve measurable results, you need to understand—as completely as possible—every customer and prospect segment, and market to each accordingly.
Use fact-based research
In-depth research is an essential part of marketing. The data harvested allows you to make decisions based on real knowledge of your core markets. Extraordinary intelligence through data mining and proprietary research methods produces exceptional results. Average research produces average (at best) returns.
