Birthdays have been canceled, vacations have been moved, and your business had to throw out the marketing playbook in 2020. From Business to business, we’re all in the same boat, and we’re all struggling to find the next “big idea” that will help us achieve our business goals year after year.

In case you haven’t kept up with us, Vende Digital recently went through a name change (You can read about that herculean task here). It was a big lift, but we found ourselves with a little time on our hands when our first plan for 2020 got thrown out, and we aren’t the type to sit idle for long. We don’t think your business should either.
You may have gone through a round of layoffs or been privy to a couple of months of uncertainty surrounding your role at work, but now is the time to make significant changes to how you want to end this year. Where your business ends up doesn’t have to be a byproduct of the lowest points because when the world changes, we adapt!
