Welcome to the first entry in our new informational blog series, Our Take On. Twice a month we will offer information designed to help you and your business thrive in an age when constant and often disruptive change is the new normal.
This series is an outgrowth of my longstanding commitment to helping clients create unique marketing strategies that will allow them to not just survive, but grow and prosper whatever the changing marketplace brings. I believe that the core cause of a wide swath of business failures is a lack of effective marketing. In the end, marketing creativity is the key differential that determines whether a business—of any kind—will succeed or fail.
Strengthening Your Digital Brand for Challenging Times Ahead

That makes it more important than ever to create a digital presence that is geared specifically to your business and customers’ needs. Creating a strong digital brand is no longer optional; it is a matter of survival.
Let’s say you are an ecommerce company. For you, success is spelled S.A.L.E.S. Over the last several years, the ever-growing market almost automatically sent customers your way, catapulting your sales figures ever-upward. Those days are likely to be over very soon, making it vital that you find your customers wherever they may be. So you need a clear and distinctive digital presence that extends outward to all the online locales where your customers are likely to be.

This approach is no longer optional; these days, it is a matter of survival.
Clearly, most businesspeople need an experienced coach to help them create a brand that is specifically geared to their business needs and customers.
