Could a deal reportedly being hammered out between Google and Verizon spell trouble for small businesses marketing content online?

Google is denying some of what has been reported and both companies claim the move won't affect the level playing field enjoyed by all content providers and users (including small businesses and their customers.)

A few years ago, I was talking to a sales manager. He was expressing some frustration, “I’m doing my job of selling, my customers need to start doing a better job of buying!” When you think about it, there’s actually a lot of truth to that statement — at least the “doing a better job of buying” part.

I am far from alone in being a huge fan of the underlying concepts and best practices. These approaches and combinations thereof have supported the transformation of legions of “wannabes” into legitimate sales professionals Read More
