Just because you can, doesn’t mean that you should. Ask yourself this one question before you extend (dilute?) your company or product brand.
The way that we consume, interact, and share information and content continues to change, as our media consumption tools evolve at an even faster rate. The challenge for marketers and business owners is to overlay such trends data in the context of their own value message and customer buying experience.
Today’s business success is driven by the ability to adapt to market conditions and customer expectations by finding and communicating in your own, authentic voice.
