Use the specific circumstances of your approach ( your personal background, innovative aspects of your product ) Play as unconventional, as unorthodox as possible In modern society the media are the key for attracting attention; paid advertisements are a poor and expensive substitute. www.entrepreneurship.de Source: Faltin 2012
