Words matter

Investing in the right communication depends on the management you hire, if they understand that their words matter, your business will flourish!

This is a highly sought after skill in marketing, when introduced to new business, we have to quickly understand the company, its goals, its capabilities, its competitors, target audience, marketplace impact and turnaround times to effectively to start any type of demand marketing.

Run it up the flag pole < get feedback

Disrupt the market < try something new

Ideate < think of

Pivot < switch

Team < collaborate

Circle back < follow up

Win-win < let's be fair

*the < means more than
