I love to say at my speaking engagements “There is no integrity in advertising.” I know how to really get marketers and advertising people off side.
My point is though that it is the people within an organisation that are the greatest ‘marketing tool’ that you have. Your people, suppliers and distributors and customers are your greatest media.
If you pay for advertising to tell people that you’re the greatest brand on the planet and then when they contact your organisation – or go to your web site and that is not what they experience…then simply you are worse off than you were before.
How much does Nike spend on advertising – enough to run a small country. Yet when I go in store and am met with a part time under 18 sales assistant who, in no way understands the Nike product nor why it is what it is my brand experience is not reinforced. Hence wasted advertising dollars. Let’s spend more of our marketing budgets on harnessing our greatest media – our people.
Give me some of examples of why advertising has no integrity.

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
