Is your website optimized for online shopping? Is your app? Do you have your own app or do people get to your website from say Weedmaps, or another weed and Cannabis finder? These are things you need to think about (me too!) 

Let's look ahead to a few years down the road shall we..? You are a established successful business. Cannabis becomes legal across the US. Some Cannabusinesses are already expanding. It's just a matter of time. What is the most important thing to businesses? 

I'm going with customers and product. You want to start now to grow your customer base. They will be the ones that will really grow your business. Because..... down the road your customers are going to be ordering their medicine, their edibles, their flower, their shatter from you from their phone. Be the first to make it super simple for them, offer a reward plan and watch your profites grow. Get this in place now.

Know your customers, grow your customers, reward your customers.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, March 10, 2015 11:39 PM

Great resource by Pam Dyer and yes headlines are important - particularly for content curators who should think about giving new headlines to the content they curate to contextualize it to their audience. 


This context can and should be added through added insights but very often, content curation (and good content sharing in general) is indeed more about making readers understand what's in it for them than anything else.
