While not a reveal of Mount Sinai prophetical proportions, these ten commandments have been building up over the past couple of years of reading, watching and doing marketing in the age of digital. If you want to succeed, I recommend that you paste this list in your wall and refer to it daily.

4. Thou shall not bow down to self proclaimed experts – many are incentivized to fuel the latest buzz mentioned above.

5. Thou shall engage with your customer – share what is important to your customer not your ego.
