The multi-channel universe is here, ready or not
Not so very long ago consumer touchpoints with a company were limited and controlled almost entirely by the company. Corporate branding efforts enjoyed a luxury called ‘time’ and a finite number of marketing channels equated to less pressure on both consumer and corporation alike.
