    Six marketing trends we’ll see in 2018

    Do you know the story of the three blind men who meet up with an elephant? Each man feels a single part of the elephant—the trunk, the side or the tail—and as a result has only a partial idea of what the animal is. Marketing today is in a similar situation.
