On one splendid sunny morning,  Kofi and kwame met once more.  Kwame informs Kofi of  his new marketing methodology and Kofi realises his error. Traditional promoting can just get you just far . Think Local But Act Global , so this time john did a reversal and terminated his corroded sales representatives and let go the old – school promotion offices that did the leaflet and daily paper notices for him. He contracted a decent web organization and outsourced all his Internet promotion to them.  Few weeks later kofi was an extremely cheerful man to see expanded benefit and lower overheads and obviously he was exceptionally thankful to Kwame for guiding him into the right bearing.
