Here we will negotiate new terms and conditions with suppliers and draw up new agreements. We will optimise agency sets and ways of working. Also, evaluation of working and performance (KPIs etc) of the department and the suppliers will be put in place. These are both transparent and market conform. We will also cover rights issues and data ownership. Of course, we will present the savings for now and the coming years, while collecting money from the past.
We will structure and draw ideal processes which are compliant with transparency and saving time of people.

In phases 1 and 2 (Due Diligence and Improvement) our remuneration is tailormade, comprising of a combination of a commitment fee and a percentage of savings.

We view marketing as an investment
That is why we call ourselves MiM: Marketing Investment Management. With every investment you typically look at your results, ROI, risks, governance, compliance. Do you also review these for your marketing investments?
By looking at all these issues, analysing them, making recommendations and operationally improving them. The main question is: is the money well spent? Well spent in the sense of effectiveness, efficiency, risk, transparency, governance, compliance, control and brand safety.
Marketing Communications, (social) media, promotion, advertising, sponsoring, SEA, POP-materials, flyers, PR. Many different terminologies are used. We know it is not right but for the sake of simplicity we just call it Marketing or MarCom.
