To do that, you need marketing. The 2016 presidential candidates know this. Hillary Clinton prepped for her campaign by enlisting hotshot marketers […]

It not only gives marketers an opportunity to shift consumers’ attention to whatever it is they want to show or tell them, but also help them to remember it. As the father of a three-and-a-half-year-old boy (an age at which the “and […]
