  • Seasons are changing, what does that mean to our direct-to-garment users out there?
  • What’s the most common call you get in Support?

Marketing Planning

  • Blog on the importance of doing a marketing plan. (http://2regularguys.com/marketing-plan/) How often are you having that conversation with people?
  • So why is having a marketing plan and even a business plan so important for the small business who might be listening?
    • If you don’t have time to write it down, how will you have time to execute it?
  • I’m a small business and I’m listening and I have bought into the need to have this plan, now comes the scary part, what does it take?
