Be Counted: Is Marketing Challenging for Your Company or Non-Profit?

The Countess Group, a Marketing Consultancy, poses this national poll


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2014 -- Rhetorical data suggests many companies and non-profits find marketing to be a significant challenge. The reasons appear mixed.

The Countess Group, a marketing consultancy now in its 14th year, is currently conducting a nationwide poll of business owners and non-profit leaders to get to the root of these challenges.

Asking only one question, “As a business owner or as a non-profit organization, what do you find to be your biggest marketing challenge?”, the poll is open to the public. Results will be released in early March.

The poll can be taken at:

“We met with over 1,500 people who attended our marketing seminars in 2013. All face some type of marketing challenge, which has the effect of distracting them from achieving their goals,” said Ken Countess, managing director of The Countess Group.

“We’re attempting to quantify these challenges so that we can help these business owners and non-profits become more successful in their efforts,” Countess continued. “By addressing their needs, we can serve them in a way that will relieve them of some of their operational frustrations and enable them to focus on their passion – running their business or serving people in need.”
