The mantra used to be, “Build it and they will come.” But if you’ve ever build an online product or service, you know that’s just not true! So many beginning creators, entrepreneurs, and educators start with an idea rather than researching what it is their audience wants from them. Terry Rice does it differently and has built a successful business using social listening and consulting to build a thriving online business. In this event, we’ll get the chance to dive into the systems and philosophies that have guided Terry’s business to become what it is today.
