Top 20 posts for the first half of 2013

This post is by Darren Woolley, Founder of TrinityP3.

It is the end of the financial year for us and now that we have put to bed the most successful year in TrinityP3‘s 13 year history, it is worthwhile reflecting on the last six months. While many of our clients are continuing to engage us in operation benchmarking in production, media and digital, there is an increasing focus on the more strategic alignment projects across marketing structures and process.

This diversity of project requirement is reflected in the most popular posts on the TrinityP3 blog during the first six months of 2013. It is interesting to see how much of the content is being read and shared with several of the most popular posts from 2012, 2011 and 2010.

5 principles of pitch management

This post is by Nathan Hodges, TrinityP3‘s General Manager. Nathan applies his knowledge and creativity to the specific challenges of marketing management, with a particular focus on team dynamics and behavioural change.

We’ve helped clients find agency partners in digital, search, media buying, advertising, direct, shopper, event, media planning, PR, research, social media and call handling.

Naturally, we don’t use the same methodology in each sector. After all, you wouldn’t expect to identify an effective agency partner in media buying in the same way as you might, for instance, find one in research or call handling.
