“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

Steve Jobs, 1994.

It’s a great time in history to work in marketing. We’re held to higher standards by our empowered customers and we have incredible tools to help us share our stories.
