Our favourite superstar is obviously falling into one of the most challenging issues faced by many businesses – getting the attention of your potential customers and influencing their position towards taking your desired action (to purchase your product/service)
Some businesses have still not gotten the drift, they are yet to understand that having the best product is no longer the criteria, having the best communication is. Unfortunately, these businesses have spent all their money on R&D, only to be left with the biggest nightmare of their lives – customers don’t care.
