Location, location, location. It’s perhaps one of the most commonly recited marketing tenets. Traditionally, the phrase has been taken to mean that your business must be in the correct location, geographically, to be successful.
As the world changes and as new technology emerges, the phrase seems to have taken on new meaning. Whether you have a retail location or not, you need to pay attention to the location of the consumer, and tailor your marketing message accordingly.
