5 Rules to Win Back Trust, Credibility, and Digital Customers

As a long-time business executive and adviser to entrepreneurs, I see a definitive shift away from customer trust in traditional business messages, and the executives who deliver them.

Today’s digitally distracted consumer is led to trust only things that they see with their own eyes. They want the raw data versus a polished message.

This distrust for the scripted message has led to a new demand for unfiltered marketing, and the emergence of business credibility heroes, like Elon Musk, with his bold statements, and sometime villains, such as Mark Zuckerberg defending Facebook privacy practices.

I just finished a new book, “Unfiltered Marketing,” by Stephen Denny and Paul Leinberger, which helped me put this digital communication transformation into perspective for all business owners.

I believe that the sooner every entrepreneur and brand builder adapts to this emerging trend, the sooner they will find success. I summarize the key elements of the

Canada Plans Digital Tax in 2022 on Global Tech Giants Such as Facebook, Google | Technology News

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada plans to impose a tax on corporations providing digital services from 2022 that will stay in place until major nations come up with a coordinated approach on taxation, the Finance Department said on Monday.

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development is working on a common approach to ensure digital behemoths, such as Alphabet Inc’s Google and Facebook Inc, pay their share of taxes as the coronavirus hammers budgets.

Canada said it was concerned about a delay in reaching agreement. The threat of digital services taxes has prompted threats of trade retaliation from outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration.

The new tax would come into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, and remain in place until a common approach is agreed upon. The measure would raise federal revenues by C$3.4 billion ($2.6 billion) over five years, starting in the 2021-22 fiscal year.

There’s really no way around it anymore—a huge motivating factor for young travelers when deciding on a destination comes down to how aesthetically pleasing a city or its tourist hot spots are.
