Does Your Business…

Does Your Business…

Several years ago we created a hardcover marketing piece for a client we were courting. It was back in the day before PDFs were the preferred form of document delivery. My favorite part of the hand-made (yes, hand-made. I actually broke a beer bottle and cut up my hand assembling these) book was the inside front and back covers that listed out a bunch of “Does Your Business…” questions.

The phrase has always been a tagline of sorts at SOZO | Pivotal. I just came across one of those books today and thought I’d share those questions with you. Some may hit home and some may not hit anything. Enjoy!
