It was the first coffee micro-mill run by women in their country. And it sparked a cultural revolution that can be emulated in farming regions around the world.
“We had to do something.”After crisis struck the remote farming community of Biolley, Costa Rica, the men fled to find work. Desperate, the women turned to coffee for survival.Despite initial setbacks ranging from burnt beans to a devastating fire, they persevered to create the coffee Association ASOMOBI (The Association of Organized Women of Biolley).It was the first coffee micro-mill run by women in their country.

This indicates that a majority of brands don’t have a mobile specific strategy in place that is fully developed.
Brands are facing a unique opportunity and challenge in mobile advertising to measure strict ROI and be found by consumers. These four truths will help create a connected devices marketing roadmap for retailers in a new retail digital ecosystem.

People who use LinkedIn to research individuals with whom they might be working are usually smart enough to do a little extra Googling, based upon the information in your LinkedIn profile.
