Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Borrowing has become big business. Throwaway products have led many to throw out traditional relationships with “stuff” they thought they just had to have — but it’s also led to a willingness to spend more if they can share that item.

Find a new connection with your audience by offering ways to ease them into a new kind of sale.
