But you need to have a strategy, you need to have a path that has set markers, set metrics, so that you know you're doing the right things if you're going to accomplish the goal that you have.” - Nicholas Ayers “I think provocation is a very good thing, every successful brand does it to a level. I think if you want to be vanilla, it's a great way to be forgotten, and just realize that this is who we are, this is what we stand for. These are the customers we want to go after.” - Nicholas Ayers “When you're having fun doing what you're doing, and it centers around a core mission, a core purpose, and your brand is internal, not external, it’s internal, it's coming from inside. Because you believe in it and it's hard to not have a good time, you don't get tired when you're winning the fight.” - Nicholas Ayers Resources Mentioned: Agency Intelligence Reach out to Katlyn Eggar Nicholas Ayers LinkedIn Better Agency ThriveSure Insurance Solutions Advertisers: ePayPolicy We Got Your Podcast
