All that Glitters is Not Sold

Studies show that men move more quickly through stores than women, so retailers have to attract their attention. In addition, people are naturally more inclined to move to the right when they enter a store, which is why the right side is considered prime real estate, where some of the most important merchandise is placed.

But what if you want to move consumers to the back of the store, or other nooks and crannies? Can color help you? In fact, the unique use of color can always attract attention - if you know how color affects people's emotions and moods.

Some people think start-ups just need marketing tactics....

Do Start-Ups Need Marketing?

Of course they do, but not just the tactics you typically read about. To be sure, tactics like trade shows, how to give away free samples, and advertising are important things to know for any startup. But why start-ups often fail (and most do) is not due to a failure in understanding the tactics of marketing. It has far more to do with some important principles of marketing that tend to get ignored.
