Increasingly more I get notification from business visionaries whose advertising simply isn’t working. They mourn that this online networking stage fails to help them or that paper advertisement doesn’t acquire enough business for the cash it costs. Why? they inquire.

Today, scarcely any individuals will accept your messages or even pay heed to them except if you can catch and keep their eye.
