  • Lack strategies that drive reliable growth with consistency
  • Market by trial and error, executing random campaigns and returning inconsistent results
  • Operate focusing on immediate competitors, lacking big-picture perspective and an understanding of industry trends, market conditions, and an unbiased perspective from an external source
