Marketing was formally a far simpler task than it is in today’s connected world- not too long ago, it was along the lines of thinking up a catchy slogan, designing an eye-catching ad, filming a memorable commercial. If your business did any of those well, you had it made. Who doesn’t remember the catchy slogans of the 80’s soda wars?

Today’s keyed-in, connected generation, that’s who. The current marketing climate has become a mix of all of the above with the element of the exceptional use of social media thrown into the already-demanding mix. Entrepreneurs can’t just throw ad money at a campaign anymore; instead companies must also use social media to bring a brand to life.
