Marketing is changing in fundamental ways. That is not a theory…that is a fact. And if you’re still marketing your goods and services the way you always have – using traditional interruption marketing tools & agencies…you are losing ground to more savvy competitors who have embraced the new tools and techniques of engagement marketing.
