Marketing doesn’t exist in tidy time brackets.
It’s that time of year; when our news feeds grow fat with awards, predictions, pomp and circumstance. As we all look forward to the promise of another new year, we’d be smart to reflect back on what we learned this year—with an eye for how we’ll build on our growing bodies of work, experience, and knowledge in 2017. We asked some of our most trusted allies about their top, marketing lessons learned in 2016.
Did your 2016 reflect similar results? What was your top lesson learned in 2016?
