As we reach the end of 2018, naturally many of us will be reviewing our marketing strategies for 2019 to work out where there is opportunity to grow, how far our budgets can be stretched, what strategies will be most engaging for our target audiences.
As you build up your strategy for 2019, think about these 3 statements:
