Marketing is still seen by many companies as a cost, rather than an investment, and tops the list of types of expenditure most likely to go in a downturn. Profitable Marketing Communications explains that marketing is about creating positive value for a business or brand through demonstrating cost versus return. The authors propose a new marketing model, which helps business-owners, CEOs, CFOs and marketers apply an investment-led approach where the focus is value, not cost. Profitable Marketing Communications introduces investment disciplines and strategies to marketing practices. It offers insight into how marketers have delivered outstanding marketing ROI for their companies. Finally, it provides a blueprint to maximize the returns from marketing communications.
