Crisis Management Tips for Small Business Owners

Fodera manufactures some of the highest-quality and most sought-after guitars in the world. Musicians travel from all over to get their hands on Fodera’s custom-built bass guitars and solid body electric guitars. But Jason DeSalvo, one of the owners of Fodera, remembers a time when things weren’t strumming along quite so smoothly.

Watch this quick video to find out how DeSalvo solved the messaging problem and got his small business back on track.
