    [Marketing] Finish Any Project by Designing it into Three Stages
    I began to think a lot less about the book and more about folks like you – small businesses that want to keep your online marketing simple, while still getting practical results that move your business forward. Any project you can think of can be designed and more readily finished by recognizing that it has three essential stages – a beginning, middle, and an ending. Whether you are writing an article, cleaning out the garage, or starting a new business, you intuitively know this to be true. Logically, most folks start at the beginning. How will you involve them?

    You’re a marketer. Marketing used to facilitate a customer transaction with a brand, generally one that occurred before a sale. At the time, marketers ‘rewarded’ customer relationships by delivering a good or service. By building marketing strategies with this framework in mind, we can create “value transactions” that effectively reward customers based on their behaviors. You spend countless hours measuring, analyzing and strategically planning ways to “build a better mousetrap.” Today, it’s no longer enough to simply reward your customers for buying your product.
