Why To And With?
At Empower, we talk a lot about the idea that brands have to ‘talk to and with their consumer’, the hope is to use this blog as a way to share key examples and thoughts on this topic. Digital technology is reshaping how consumers interact with brands and if they are willing to embrace a true dialogue with consumers they will outshine their competitors and better yet have consumers who can’t stop using their products or services.
