We've all heard stories about Harley-Davidson owners who are so invested in the company's ethos that they have the company logo tattooed on their body.
THE WAY PEOPLE BUY HAS CHANGED DAVID MEERMAN SCOTT is author of the bestselling book The New Rules of Marketing and PR and a top content marketing expert. He provides a roadmap with tips for organizations looking to win the attention wars for their products, services, and ideas. The way people buy has changed. Just think about your own buying habits as an example. When was the last time you bought something because you received a piece of direct mail? Or a cold phone call to your home or business?
