A couple of weeks ago FiG launched our e-mail newsletter and we received some really valuable feedback! Thank you everyone, for sharing your opinions about marketing and helping FiG better understand what information is important to you. As most of the feedback suggested, FiG will share more case studies in the future, glad you liked what you saw. Also today FiG will answer 3 main questions raised from our audience:

With today's tougher competition, market volatility, and greater individual and team accountability, you must prove that your marketing efforts are getting the desired results. Virtually every dollar you spent on marketing today must be justified as both effective and efficient in terms of Return Of Marketing Investment (ROMI).
