That statement is not necessarily new in terms of web marketing. It’s been around a couple years now.

The thing is, now you’re required to use the tools and networks the web has to offer. If you don’t, the playing field is no longer level where you’re concerned. You’re off the map.
This means if you haven’t already got your head around the fact that your business is a media company, do it today.

Producing content that is:
Is what can gain you the popularity and attention that will make a huge difference to the success of your business.
