Marketing can be viewed through a lot of lenses. In many cases, it will be about the numbers. Other times, wordsmith matters the most. Fine retouches can only come from the best visuals. But at its core, marketing has a lot to do with persuasion. Convincing someone that you’re trustworthy, so that you can...
