5 Ways to Be More Confident When Making Marketing Decisions

By: Dan Baum May 8th, 2018

Blog Feature

It has always been the job of marketers to build brands, inspire demand, generate leads, and promote loyalty to a company, but nowadays, marketers have to do so much more. They have to be strategic and logistical, making the most out of scarce budgets to achieve company goals and maximize the ROI of their efforts. They also have to navigate new and innovative technology and decide which tools will be most useful for their brand, and with that new tech, they need to be statisticians, analyzing the past in order to plan for the future.

I never know how to answer the question “How long have you been at IMPACT?” While last month marked my first year at the company out of college, I never know how to mention that I worked at IMPACT much earlier– long before it was the inbound marketing agency and media company that it is today.

Every marketer knows social media is one of the most effective ways to expand your reach, connect with your target audience, and grow your business.
