I have been working with Kate professionally for over five years on several projects related to non-profit marketing, but it was not until I hired her personally to oversee all the details of a political campaign that I knew her true worth. Kate and her team of professional writers, photographers, and graphic artists at Zeal created concept, visual, copy, web presence, digital/print media, and event planning for every stage of the campaign trail. Kate interfaced with media, clients, party officials, other candidates, supporters, and even nay-sayers with the diplomacy, tact, and artful salesmanship that truly made her an invaluable partner in accomplishing our goals.

Why your company needs a Marketing Evaluation

Every business has a limited marketing budget, and it’s easy to waste it. It is important for small businesses to budget and spend efficiently. So often, small businesses operate by the “little here, little there” philosophy, not even keeping track of how much money they’re spending and where.

If that’s you, it’s okay! Let’s fix it.

Evaluation is a necessity in marketing: it helps your company eliminate ineffective strategies and develop an overall plan to build your business and reach your goals.

Through an evaluation of your marketing efforts, you can save money by modifying or eliminating campaigns that are not reaching your target market or producing successful results.

Zeal Marketing & Consulting offers marketing consultations as the first step in developing a marketing strategy. Call today to schedule yours!
