    Thanks Alex. Would you mind helping me out here. I started a Web Design business, could you elaborate more on number 3, it’s distinct and how I can make my work different from others and for a service like this, how I can use packing tactics? Thanks a lot. Its a great article.

  • Alex Mathers

    Thanks Udara – I’ll be sharing more about that in coming articles…

    Interestingly “packaging” has a lot to do with communication. If you cannot present yourself and your “products” successfully, sure you will have problems attracting a greater audience and spreading the word. Great post!
