Welcome to episode 135 of the Marketing Freaks Podcast. This week, we’re diving into a topic that’s both intriguing and a bit frustrating, the sales pitch process. Jon and Abi are sharing their candid thoughts on the gap we often see between flashy pitches and actual delivery. We’re talking about the extreme lengths some agencies will go to just to make things seem better than they are in reality.

We’ve pulled out some of our favourite stories from the pitch vaults. Some from our own experiences and others are tales we’ve heard from clients. It’s all about giving you the insights you need to make smarter choices about the agencies you partner with. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a great episode!
