We live in an extremely diverse time. Consumers are heavily reliant on digital technology and are driven by social media trends and communication, but we are not merely a generation of (electric) sheep.

Everything and everyone must work together to maximise a marketing strategy’s impact. If one cog is not working, the marketing machine will not function properly.
