As marketers, a failed campaign is our worst nightmare.

But sadly, failed marketing attempts happen every day and everywhere. Forbes says that strategic plans fail for many reasons, including a lack of focus on results, the wrong talent, partial commitment from leadership, and resistance to change.

So, how can teams pinpoint what went wrong and redirect marketing energy?

As Paul Roetzer (@paulroetzer) states in Chapter 8 of The Marketing Performance Blueprint:

“Every marketing plan should start with an honest internal marketing assessment. The assessment should consider perspectives from multiple stakeholders, including marketing and sales leaders, as well as key executives. The more involved the partiers are in the entire strategy process, the easier it is to align needs, goals, expectations and priorities.”

The time is now to transform your marketing program.
