For Entrepreneur Network partner Scott Oldford, a successful marketing strategy starts with the 3 C's: connection, conversation and community.

By telling a compelling story in the hopes of forming a connection, you will more readily be able to create value for your customers and help them in the future. 

Oldford leads this discussion into how if you are interested in creating value for your customers and also hope to enjoy your life as an entrepreneur, developing a marketing strategy that focuses in part on intimacy can launch you in the right direction.
