  • Influencers: Ordinary People With Superpowers
    by GregJameson on May 9, 2018 at 4:56 pm

    People are tired of sales pitches. I recently had a friend unfollow and vow to never support a brand because of retargeting ads, as she found them invasive. We are all inundated with marketing messages constantly and consumers are sick of it. How then, as a small business, can you get your message heard?

    I messed up. Each week, I write a blog post, which becomes the basis of my newsletter.
