How to Hire the Right Marketing Consultant
Play • 31 min

Hiring a marketing consultant is often a leap of faith.

You’re hoping their expertise and experience fills gaps and make things happen.

- A lack of engagement and collaboration (no partnership)

- Not enough clarity about what success looks like.

- A lack of commitment to actually do marketing (more talk than walk)

When I lost a client recently, some of these issues reared their ugly heads.
