Case Study: From Red to Black, Generate Double-Digit Sales Increases Through Strategic Marketing

Conventional wisdom states that when times are bad and sales are down, management should cut all expenses except sales and marketing. And when things get really bad, management must cut everything but sales because selling is the fastest way to increase revenues. This business-to-business case study illustrates how, if executed properly, strategic marketing can sometimes be a quicker, more efficient and more effective way to grow sales. The Situation A manufacturing firm's brand enjoyed high name recognition, and the longstanding business had survived and often thrived through multiple business cycles during its storied history. A competent management team had been assembled and was balancing operational needs with cash-flow requirements. However, sales of the manufacturer's primary division were dismantling and the market for its products was in a severe depression. The lack of volume meant the company was not covering its overhead.

Part 7 of a 7-part series The amount of information available is so mind-bogglingly huge, nobody could possibly have access to all of it. But everybody knows something. Perhaps you know more about some specific topic than do most people, because you have gathered information over time, through research and experience.

If you can put together a means to promote and deliver the product to the market, then you have the potential to generate an income. That is the essence of an internet-based information product business.
