We invite you to join SM CEO Terry Swack to discuss: The business case for integrating product transparency into product marketing

The Business Insights article in US Builders Review this month tells the story of Sustainable Minds Transparency Products and the business case for integrating product transparency into product marketing.

Recorded Thu, MAR 9 | 2–3:00pm ET

It’s no longer a differentiator to just ‘disclose’ information. Effectively explaining how your products are made earns customers’ trust and builds brand loyalty. SM Transparency Products make product transparency reporting understandable and meaningful to inform greener and healthier purchase decisions.

Learn how to measure the value and ROI of integrating product transparency into product marketing:

  1. Intentional customer experience & greater satisfaction
  2. Sales/marketing operations efficiency & effectiveness
  3. Competitive advantage & risk reduction
  4. Build/manage a credibly greener & healthier brand

Terry Swack"CEO and founder Terry Swack says her company, Sustainable Minds, wants to reward product manufacturers for making products that actually have better environmental performance and are made from materials that contribute to a healthier built environment.
