Bank Marketing is about as exciting as a local car sales campaign

What makes a good marketing campaign? This is a question that many business owners and decision makers in corporate America ask themselves for years. The results of the thinking is raining down on us on a daily basis in form of advertising in many forms, social media activities and uncounted other forms of activity to promote a product, service or a company. Marketing is considered one of the most important activities for a business. And, I think, it is true. If you are unable to make the consumer aware of whatever you have to sell, you won’t sell enough to make your campaign successful.

In the last sentence above lies one of the keys for a successful marketing campaign. Selling!! The activity of selling is at the end of the campaign, but the process of selling clearly is deciding on the success of every marketing campaign.

Buffett’s Bank of America deal, dreamed up in the tub – The Term Sheet: Fortune’s deals blog Term Sheet.

This is very common. The best ideas are always popping up away from work and in an environment that has nothing to do with work and is recommended as a place to leave work where it is, at work.

Another reason why he is what he is, he is not only thinking about it, he actually does what he thinks. I’ve been thinking of buying Bank of America, but I didn’t do it. Already missed a chance. BofA stock is good for $12.00 until the end of January 2012, possibly earlier. Too good of a bank, outstanding footprint to take advantage of when things get better and now Warren Buffet is in.

This would give Arsenal a chance to build in peace with a little less pressure. Continue reading
