I’m always floored when a prospective new client asks me about ROI (return on investment from marketing). Not because it’s a silly question. And not because I can’t respond to the question.
The reason I’m floored is because the question usually comes from people who work for organizations that spend unbelievable amounts of money on marketing their events— not exactly the best tactic for generating high ROI.
