Recommendation

David Avrin, who introduces himself as the “Visibility Coach,” usefully explains which marketing plans and activities work best and which to avoid.

People believe this story and like it, whether it is true or not, because it fits perfectly with the Nordstrom narrative and its reputation for excellence in pleasing its clientele.
