Why do businesses and products fail? For one, they may be sending the wrong message. Second, they may not understand the importance of strategy and how it aligns with marketing. Another reason is not thinking systematically or establishing longevity. Similar to a three-act play, every marketing campaign needs a beginning, a middle and an end. A marketing strategy must be adaptive, innovative and consistent. Companies need to think smart: be different but effective, tell a compelling story, forge the proper alliances, anticipate the future, adapt to change and build on momentum.

“The best marketing doesn't feel like marketing” - Tom Fishburne


In the last few decades, marketing has changed dramatically. While core principles like promotion and engagement remain, technology and distribution systems have transformed into global platforms. Marketing is no longer local or national; it is worldwide. So how do you stay relevant and competitive? How do you capture your market and move from engagement to action? As a company that has its own projects, products and services, Devonfield explores these issues daily. We have conducted extensive research and developed proven models.


Problems with Marketing

  • Short-term focus
  • Conveying the wrong message
  • Targeting the wrong demographics
  • Not utilizing technology
  • Investing in the wrong areas
  • Not thinking systematically
  • Using obsolete methods
  • The wrong strategic partners


The growing global economy has redefined the dynamics of competition. With worldwide rivalries, success depends on being able to deliver the right product to the right market at the right time. Organizations that think systematically are turning to partnerships and alliances to access complementary knowledge and resources. This can provide new customers and innovative technology. Devonfield can help you analyze the organizational and cultural fit among partners; choose collaborative alliances; build on your capabilities to position your product; and leverage your brand for maximum impact.
