Advertising & Promotion and Seth Godin – New Marketing

In my view, using the power of content and information in a small business is the new marketing plan. Inform, entertain, teach, share and contribute. Your customers want to know they can trust you, your customers will go where they can find out more information about your products. If you do not have a place for them to find that information, your customers will go elsewhere.
