I had a challenge bringing in new massage clients. After reviewing literature on effective massage-centered marketing, I implemented the ideas as cost-effectively as possible. The best ideas usually involved me getting hands on new people, so that was my priority. Within a year, I had increased commission sales by over 500% and collaborated in developing a spa-product retail operation.
This happens a lot at FDB. I'd design a solution, take it in for a review, to have them redeisgn it on the spot. Your solution works, but not they way they wanted to see it work. Insane waste of time. To answer the question: Before we re-invent the wheel, let delve into the solution and see what seems logical to you.
Just ask them how they would improve the design. No need to start from the ground up with a brand new idea. Fresh eyes taken with a grain of salt are good for most projects.
