Blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other publishing platforms are giving everyone a "voice," including organizations and their customers. To be successful, businesses must speak directly with their customers or prospects through a comprehensive strategy that allows them to reach new customers at every stage of the buying cycle. They must find their voice and create bold and compelling content that people want to consume and which speaks to their needs or wants or desires.
Yeah, yeah... so you know all that. But how can you create bold stories, videos, and blog posts that cultivate fans, arouse passion for your products or services, and ignite your business?
