Ever wondered how an artist can be known by a selected few but oblivious to others? Or why is it that now people are just finding out about vine after instagram dropped its video feature? It all comes down to marketing. Do the right people know about your startup? What platforms are out there and what is the future of marketing? Should we even care? If you are serious about your business, then this is a topic you should worry about.
