The actions by Australian opening batsman Cameron Bancroft has led to a cricket brand crisis. The reactions of his teammates, team management, world cricket authorities, former players, commentators and the general public are all having an immediate impact on the brand.

Too many people are fed misinformation, so I want to set the record straight and deliver the truth about marketing your business. Everywhere you look, somebody is trying to sell you on how they turned their company around in a few days to be delivering six-figure monthly returns, or they will unlock the secrets to a 'killer' process.

It's not my favourite term, but a 'small business marketing consultant' (in fact I am cringing as I type this*) is essential to most businesses success and long term viability. More than ever the skills of a marketerare breaking off into increasingly specialised subsets. There is no way a business owner can still be a jack fo all trades when it comes to marketing.
