Money + Marketing

You can't have one without the other.

A Business Duo For Growth

Money and marketing are two areas that bosses often struggle with in their businesses. But besides that commonality, they typically aren’t thought of together. How often are you thinking about your P&L while you plan out a month of social media content?

The reality is that both money and marketing are really about the same thing when it comes to business – how you currently earn money and how you grow your company and its value. No matter what tactics you choose, marketing is how you will attract new customers and will impact how much revenue you make. Your business finances or money metrics show the effects of your marketing and can also determine how robust your marketing efforts can be.

They will forever be closely linked, informing one another about the health of your business. Keeping that in mind, we’re bringing you some fresh links with a look at marketing trends, financial stats, and tools.
