Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the future: A place where purchasing decisions are motivated and informed by your online interactions with people far and near via social. This definition may not fit all consumers, but it applies to an audience that is increasing and is changing the way we do business. Are you ready for that? If not, it’s time to catch up. It’s no longer about broadcasting a message you hope will soak in, remember? It’s about creating content that serves to inspire consumer advocates who will believe in your brand because of who you are and what you do as well as what you sell. Reaching them is how you will reach their friends, their colleagues, their contacts, and more.
