    by UsableNet

    The benefits of a well-executed marketing plan are many, but to realize them CMOs must first ensure their strategies and tactics are right.

    In this week's edition of "CMO Wants To Know," seven executives cite areas where their fellow marketers might be missing the mark. Read on to find out some common mistakes—and hopefully avoid them yourself.
