How Can You Connect in the Covid Age

You’re being told a million different marketing tactics you can do in the age of Covid-19. But really, are you sure that some random article or video is an expert on what your customer needs to hear from you right now. Spoiler alert: It’s not.

How can you sell leading with empathy and listen to your audience?

“Marketing professionals are not the only ones who appreciate great branding. As a human resource manager, my own marketing counterpart recognized the value I would find in Cushing’s Lunch and Learn sessions. She and I are currently employing strategies presented during their employment branding segment. Cushing is not only a gracious host; their program is relevant and practical.”

Dan will work with one member of our audience to fill out their Hourglass in detail but he’s also giving YOU your own version of the Marketing Hourglass template to customize so you can follow along and have the beginnings of a more complete tactical outlook for yourself too.
