Not a support function

Don’t go to marketing with tasks. Go to marketing with ideas.

As marketing owns many of the communication channels of a company, marketers often find themselves swamped with (last minute) requests to push out this or that message. An upcoming webinar. The latest integration. A landing page. A logo to add somewhere. The next newsletter.

Approach marketing with ideas, instead. Ideas are broader, they give marketers the possibility to prioritise, plan, create. They stimulate ownership and foster better organization.

Marketing is not a support function.
