Business marketing is not like going for a family vacation.

Did everyone take a family vacation this summer? Do you've children of your own personal, or do you remember what it was like when you were a child taking a trip somewhere?

I can still remember the-family vacations like a child growing up. Our popular journeys across America in the household station wagon or the hired RV, when the station wagon became impractical. Now with my own family we've take-n some similar but generally smaller size visits.

And too many times, they reject their advertising 'strategy' as it wasn't getting them results and taking them where they wanted to go. But even worse than that, often times the 'are we there yet' thinking didn't even let them complete planning or put the theory into a
