Trends are changing and you must be ahead of the game and ready to pivot into the new areas of marketing your product.
This is all about marketing tactics. How to build lasting client relationships. Getting involved from the beginning to the end of the purchase. Cannella makes it a habit to order the product and their team uses it to see how the product performs for purposes of media space. This enables them to know the audience and who is buying the product. They live it and treat it as if it is one of their own products. It’s moving into the world of ensuring that Cannella is in tune with all the distribution points of media and understanding what’s going on out there because so much is changing. It’s about contact, data, creating enough iterations of that content so that you can hit all the channels of distribution.
There is so much that isn’t the “tried and true” principles of marketing. Always hold true so you’re still relevant, but you must be in tune with what makes the money come in. It is, after all, a business.
