In this video clip, serial entrepreneur and investor Kumar Arora offers advice on how marketers can create organic sales channels to boost sales for their company. Marketers should think of themselves as “matchmakers” who persuade the customer to fall in love with their product and realize why they can’t live without it.

The idea is to give them something that they just can’t live without. They might not know that yet, but they have to think that way.”
