Marketing Wisdom: In the end, it’s all about…

Marketing Strategy


If you’re looking for some marketing wisdom and inspiration, my MECLABS colleague, Daniel Burstein wrote a post on the MarketingSherpa Blog, “Marketing Wisdom: In the end, it’s all about…” that’s definitely worth checking out. He brings together the collective wisdom of a project he spawned by asking  bloggers to reveal their most important message; look for posts on twitter with #lastblog.

Here are just a few of Daniel’s favorite takeaways that are worth reading…
