PHASE 13: FIELD MARKETING

Integrate corporate Marketing with Sales by executing marketing tactics in the field.

 

Corporate programs without localization fail to produce revenue. Each region is different, and each message and program need to be adjusted to meet the needs of the different customer types. Field marketing is the connective tissue between corporate and the field. Marketing budgets are best utilized when the field positively influences the corporate Marketing Strategy.
