Debate Held Over Direct Marketing vs. Market Research at MJ Experia Marketing
A debate on whether to focus on event marketing techniques or investigate consumer needs in the direct marketing industry boiled over during MJ Experia Marketing’s business strategy workshop on Saturday 8st March in Birmingham.
Last weekend, Saturday 8st March, two marketing freelancers went head-to-head during a segment of MJ Experia Marketing’s business strategy meeting. Hosted at the firm’s Birmingham office, the two freelancers strongly voiced their opinions regarding the importance of direct and event marketing techniques and market research about consumers’ needs.
“The debate got quite heated but it came from the hunger to succeed which drives our force of freelancers. I am pleased to see that we have strong, confident and passionate individuals representing our brand,” explains Matt Wassall, managing director of MJ Experia Marketing.
