Marketing for Business - Episode 18 - The Death of Local Restaurants?

It's Marketing for Business Episode 18 and my co-host Phil K. James from Good Milkshake Digital is worried. He is worried that if locally owned restaurants (or really any locally owned business) doesn't take advantage of connecting with consumers by telling stories they are doomed because the "Big Guns" with all the money and all the social media experience are going to take them down.
