Be worthy to trust

Worthy to trust
For centuries people bought from people they knew and were in their immediate surroundings. Before the last century this changed, when the traveling salesmen appeared. Some of them were never coming back or were untraceable. Read more…

Outbound – Inbound Marketing

Outbound - Inbound Marketing
Modern international marketing is difficult to follow for these traditionally anchored industrialists. This story may be a bit exaggerated but illustrates that industry is still running behind general marketing’s practices and should be alerted. Read more…

Innovation in India

The word ‘innovation’ has a close resemblance to the word ‘Invention’, but why? The answer lies in the fact that, in technology, very few inventions are being turned out nowadays.
