Why do businesses struggle with marketing so much?

the wrong capability

Marketing capability is notoriously hard to build. Getting all the right people onboard costs a bomb, and often businesses don't have the right team to deliver the marketing strategy and campaigns they need.

strategy and planning

All too often, marketing activity is ad hoc and lacks consistency. This is often due to missing strategy and planning - "we'll just try that" is often the refrain. This leads to a lot of half-baked, poorly performing marketing initiatives.


It's important that marketing activity is consistent - both in message and timing. When Marketing is an afterthought, activity often happens in fits and starts - leading to any gains being given up as quickly as they are won.

lack of knowledge

Business owners don't do their own accounts, or write their own contracts - so why do they try and lead marketing teams? Marketing needs strategic leadership that can translate between execution activity and business priorities.
