Step 3: The Online Marketing and Service World

Six marketing dimensions to implement now. Last month, I provided to readers the vision to understand key points of marketing and advertising and made reference to some matters the online world addresses.

Step 1: Pricing – Facilitating Your Vision

Twelve months, 12 steps to business success in 2020. This month: no-fear pricing. This is the year of implementing your 2020 vision plan in your business, and using the year 2020 as a metaphor for 20-20 eyesight is perfect. Like your eyesight, while we are aiming toward the most successful outcomes, we understand there may need to be some corrections along the way. As well as urging you in these columns to do everything in your power to facilitate your vision, I will be offering something different as well – a monthly video blog memorializing the written columns.

Sometimes doing the right thing is more about the courage […]
