Print is a Baby, Not a Geezer: The Newness Crisis

What’s new? You should say “print,” because so many of the media decision-makers have not had noteworthy experiences with the medium. Selling what you know can actually be dangerous, because you need to know what your client and prospect know, first. Only then can you have a chance at relevance. Print is actually a baby, and reference to its glorious past diminishes the many new offerings and tactics that can involve printed materials and specialties in meeting the challenges and objectives of communicators.

This is a brilliant article Joe!

It's a perfect description of our scenario and a thoughtful way on how to cope with it.

It's even more relevant when coming from an old geezer.
