    I do recommend Mr. McLaughlin. His thinking is sound on the topic of advertising and perceived value. We believe advertising and marketing should be driven by the bottom line business results it creates, period. Far too many agencies -- large and small -- are driven by fees and "doing advertising" for clients, instead of causing results, regardless of the tactics necessary.
    Our agency is paid based on client results we generate.

    Interesting. How do you measure the results? And when?

    and how do those results measurements measure into your billing structure?
    via guaranteed results deals? via base & commision structures?
    and how do you address the client "self-sabotage" syndrome that occurs on occasion, particularly in relation to creative concept development and brand image?
