Resumes are good but they don't tell you who they really are. They might have the educational degrees but if they don't work in your culture, its not going to work.

Of all the things listed above the one that I agree the most is mining customer database. It is important that we profile our database every once in a while, see who are great customers and those who are only causing problems. By doing so we will distinguish who we need to value more.a

Well pointed out Ann. For me the biggest error in marketing is not knowing who your target market is. It is like walking in the dark tunnel and not seeing the light, you keep going and going nowhere. Before even starting a business, it is imperative that you know who you want to cater to. To whom is your product/service for? By understanding this will you be able to provide the best service/product.

I believe pre-filtering is important. Working with a company that does not appreciate your services can be stressful. They will most likely find fault in what you do which can lead you to question your business.

Chipotle's video are really great. This  is also what they call emotional marketing. You tap the emotions of the audience, tell them a story that they can relate and understand. They may have a lot of blunders but they win us back with these videos.

#3 is what I like most. A leader should be composed especially during stressful and high pressure situations. As a leader, employees look up to you during these times, if you panic they will too. Panicking will not get things done.
