8 INKFISH PRINCIPLES

All our decisions for your account are based on tried and tested or proven marketing principles, typically simply relating to how the human brain receives information rather than a new fad or gimmick. If it makes sense, we implement it. The easiest mistake is to run after each social media platform that wants you to create content on their platform specific, however, in the big picture it makes more sense to create content on your own website and use the social media platforms to distribute this.

Hierarchy of value can be described as a system in which companies can determine customer value and satisfaction as well as the value of their business and how it can be increased.
