It is also the time of year for developing a marketing plan, setting the advertising budget and establishing priorities for the upcoming year. Well, maybe not. All too often marketing communications plans get left until the last minute or are executed on the fly. And for many, it’s not because they don’t need marketing communications materials or don’t want them, it’s because for many, developing a marketing budget is still one of those great unknowns.

The services you provide and the products you deliver all need to be in tune with the wants, needs, fears and hopes of your customer. At Lime Valley, the entire sales channel must be considered when developing marketing materials. For some clients, the sales channel flows directly to the end consumer. For many others the sales channel may include distributors, dealers, or wholesalers. The importance of understanding this is critical in a marketing/advertising setting.
