A great rule of marketing that I live by and always use when providing marketing consulting to a business is ‘always put yourself in the shoes of your customer/s’ – think about how things impact them, how your activity come across to them, and indeed if your activity is more for your benefit than theirs… you might need to launch that new promotion today, but do they want to hear about it right now?

Be engaging, not annoying!
