4 Steps To Rapidly Improve Your Marketing
1. Follow the Natural Path

It was basic Stimulus –> Response
Which is what you want, right?
But it’s not that simple today because of Google and reviews. When you send out a mailer or doorknock or run a Facebook post or buy online leads the first thing people are going to do is …Google You!
