  1. Fundamentals for physical places such as restaurants, bars, coffee shops: include location with mobile-friendly map, your menu/services with prices, hours of operation, phone number, if you have Wi-Fi. Include a hook (promotion)
  2. Brick & Mortar Retailers: mention products, nearest locations, hours of operation, & buy products via mobile devices
  3. Law firms, Accounting firms, other professional firms: include a map, number to the receptionist (if lost within the building), make sure it has lots of white space, it makes it looks first class), finally include a click to call option

The Five “Cs”:

  1. Company: i.e. product line, image, experience, culture
  2. Collaborators: Biz doing biz with distributors, suppliers, alliances
  3. Customers: buying behavior, decision makers or influencers, market size, how they get info on you
  4. Competitors: direct vs. indirect (i.e. Coke vs. Pepsi vs having a Popsicle as a refreshment instead)
  5. Climate: macro environmental factors (political & regulatory environment, economic, social, and tech environment)
*Great questions to ask yourself and others about your biz? (p. 68-69)  Sometimes the CEO, COO, CMO, Employers, and others have different ideas about your company and it’s Brand differentiation
