Marketing Guy Code of Conduct

I find working with clients on their marketing involves a far more personal relationship than some people might imagine. Mutual trust is the key to a successful marketing relationship. I got thinking about how I can establish trust with a client that has not had the benefit of a referral and started to write out what I thought were the terms and conditions of working with a client.

Then I realized how impersonal terms and conditions are and they have now evolved into a personal and Corporate Code of Conduct. Here’s my Code of Conduct:
