If a marketing strategy isn't growing revenue, market share, or company size—toss it out.
Start by solving these marketing strategy problems:
1. You have too few marketing strategies
2. Your strategies are driven by trends, not science
3. You're focused on sustaining your position, not advancing it
Too few marketing strategies tell too few stories with too few happy endings.
While you should have one core marketing strategy that fuels more granular ones, too many firms try working off of one broad strategy. After experiencing a very minimal uptick in revenue, firms spend excessive amounts of time overhauling the one broad strategy, instead of creating more focused sister strategies that may prove the core strategy’s worth. Simplify your approach to marketing strategies by creating more, not less.
Stop creating too many tactics for too few strategies

What’s the name of that professional athlete that everyone considers to be the most average player of all time? Your subconscious probably started sorting through hundreds or thosands of names.
