We are so close to the holiday break that I can pretty much taste the eggnog. For most professionals, end-of-the-year tasks have
been in full swing for several weeks now. Many of us are powering through this holiday homestretch until the usual festivities mandate we celebrate
with friends and family and/or get some much needed R&R. In our EWorksWSI team we are all looking forward to some downtime for the holidays!

December is always so bittersweet, what with the holidays and the realization that another year has come and gone. This year, we’re all forging ahead into
the next decade (sounds weird to call it the ‘20s!) and are excited for what is around the corner. I hope you and yours have a wonderful start to 2020.

The role of the customer is changing. Nowadays, customers hold higher expectations for the companies and brands they support and work with, especially
due to the amount of easily accessible information and data out there. Everyday consumers are also making an effort to support purpose-driven brands, which plays a significant role in affecting their consumer behaviours and purchasing
As a result, companies and brands are no longer building their marketing strategy solely around the goal to accelerate business acquisitions anymore.
According to Twitter, with over 3 billion people on social media, more
consumers are using the social media platform to connect with businesses when they have questions, compliments, or complaints. Many brands and businesses

your business’ marketing strategy with a customer care focus. What does this mean? It means being more proactive, using social data to shape interactions,

It’s time to step up your email marketing game in 2019. With people’s inboxes constantly overflowing with countless emails from businesses and brands like

marketing efforts slipping through the cracks and getting lost...
It’s that time of year again! No, I’m not talking about curling up in front of the TV to watch your favorite classic holiday films (though it is
that time of year, too). December is the month where we begin to think about the new year – in this case, 2019 – and everything that lies ahead. As
is our tradition here at WSI, we like to make a few predictions while we look toward the future.
Dating back to 2014, we’ve made a marketing predictions post for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the entire reason we started doing these
