Presentation from February 2011 Governor's Marketplace in Salem, Oregon. Marketing tactics to get results in a tough economy. Addresses the following topics: what business are you in? Who are your customers and what do they think about you? Who are the customers you want to reach? What sets you apart from your competition?

When you have a clear picture of what you have to offer (in terms of what your audiences want and need) and who your audiences are, you’ll be more effective at choosing the right method, tactics and media to reach those audiences.
Includes examples of successful campaigns designed from the “point of choice” … where the target audience takes action to respond.
