Having a testable hypothesis, held with a degree of skepticism is a good place to be, as it starts the conversation off on the right foot regarding verifiable results - anyone giving fluffy answers at this point isn't worth talking to.

That said, it still won't guarantee results, and your marketeer will want paying anyway, but you can approach it on the basis of limited commitment testing, rather than a fully committed permanent endeavour.

If you want your marketeer to have real skin in the game, they'll understandably insist on influence on product & target audience, not just on the content of the promotional activity.
