ThurstonTalk’s Integrated Branding Platform provides solution for local businesses. You can read more about the business value proposition here.
When we publish content to ThurstonTalk.com, it’s available to our readers, hits search engines, and sometimes even gets picked up by other groups. We use the Integrated Branding Platform to describe how content can flow through multiple distribution networks. An article published on ThurstonTalk can be distributed as part of a newsletter, included with an email to customers, shared on social media pages, or even printed and handed out at an event.
