Why is it important?

It is the first article that jointly deals with macroeconomic contexts and business gains and losses as responsible for making marketing investments effective.


I hope this article can clarify that factors external to the company together with the result of previous internal factors are important to demonstrate when to increase or reduce marketing expenses.
