Marketing Promotions

Although promotions might seem like a no-brainer (make them an offer they can’t refuse), they can fall flat if they’re not grounded in what a consumer wants, thinks or needs. By connecting your marketing promotions to customer insights, you’ll make your efforts and your investment go farther than ever before.
