How Do People Find Your Business?

All the old methods still work to varying degrees but consider all the new, more modern ways people can hear about your business? They can talk into the air and Siri or Alexa can direct them, their watch can give them names of businesses and directions to get there. Their phones and their in-car GPS systems can give them detailed directions and ratings for businesses. The bottom line is that you need to know where your potential customers are gathering and talking and listening, either in person, or virtually, and meet them there.
