Marketing’s Fifth P: Productivity

By Rick Jensen                               OPENForum                             August 20, 2012      

               

We’re all familiar with the four Ps of marketing: product, place, price, and promotion. Perhaps it’s time to consider a fifth P, for productivity. After all, our marketing efforts should also factor in how quickly and cost efficiently we’re able to develop and execute our campaigns. >>>

Elvis Presley: Diamond Celebrity of the Week

By stonechicky                 The Israeli Diamond Industry Blog                    August 20, 2012
