A MARKETING SPECIALIST'S VIEW
Let’s assume you have all the
answers. You know what you need
designed. You know how you want it
designed and you know who your target
customer is. You have all the images and
verbiage written and all you need is for
someone to lay it out so it can be
printed. If you are at this stage then all
you need is a designer. Conversely, if you
know what you want to sell but need
advice on ways to sell it, then you will
need to consider a marketing specialist.
