In fact, there is a powerful tool that has predicted changing consumer demands for decades. It&rsquo; predicted the massive shift that created social media. It predicted the social change that Donald Trump tapped to become president. And it perfectly illustrates why our nation&rsquo;s more liberal citizens are far more energized and organized today than the Occupy Wall Street movement of 2011 (and, this is way bigger than having Trump as a villain or common enemy to rally against.) This month&rsquo;s Best Practices in Information Marketing is about the dynamic social changes occurring, the changes coming soon and what they mean for what your customers are going to buy in the next few months and years.
