What does Marketing EQ mean?

Marketing EQ owner, Julie Gorham worked with hundreds of businesses, organizations and government agencies between 1988 to 2008 in advertising planning and account management. Most complained they threw their money away on marketing and advertising services that under-performed. Once their money was gone, they had no sustainable way to advertise and sustain lead generation. Referrals are always key, but there’s no way to predict and produce ongoing results. Julie devoted her career to understanding all media products from TV and radio to now thousands of SaaS (software as a service) and digital media. She applied the principle of Market Equilibrium in retail which means supply is in equal proportion to demand so there is neither loss nor waste of products. Marketing Equilibrium (EQ) is a model to structure all investments to maximize results and eliminate any unnecessary spend (waste). This approach utilizes any combination of the 121 marketing metrics used by national brand managers to measure performance. Every company is different, so the metrics applied are unique to that business and industry. The bottom line? We build it right, the first time.
