So, what should your marketing team do?
The good news is that there are a number of things you and your team can do. And they all start with the simplest of tasks: listening. This episode of Thinks Out Loud looks at how you and your team can listen to your customers more effectively, why that’s so important when we’re in a recession, and what will happen if you don’t do the right things with that information.
