It is not just:
Understanding your customers, prospects and the market and using that knowledge to articulate and grow your business.
Knowing your competitors and why what you offer is so different
Communicating your value simply and clearly
Running focused marketing activity to increase revenues – such as clear websites, social media or campaigns
Developing an emotional bond between you and your customers, so they come back and tell others how great you are
