Reaching a Distracted Audience

Janice Le, Silicon Valley CMO and Startup Advisor, joins the podcast to talk about how brands can reach a distracted market. She sees two approaches to marketing right now, one that highlights how your company can help, and one that ensures your brand is remembered positively once the world is out the other side of the pandemic.

Janice emphasizes the importance of cyberhygiene in our world of ever increasing digital connection. She explains end-users cannot rely on vendors to do everything it takes to protect them in cyberspace and would like to see vendors remind their customers of that through education.
