When you are connecting with your prospects, you need to humanize your marketing communications to engage them effectively. This means returning to old-school principles about the way communication works.

Wherever you find yourself communicating about your business to clients and prospects, you are marketing – whether it is in person, a phone call, a blog post, email, social media, or some not-yet-invented medium.
