stay indefinitely in the shadow of an attic … Likewise, you may have had
an idea of ​​genius by designing an innovative product or service entirely in
in line with the current market, but this will not be convincing if you do not
make the effort to publicize it.Without that, a competitor will not be long in forging an identical concept and, in turn, in reaping all the fruits … That’s the whole point: communicating, being known, growing, dominating the competition.
