Our critical path for growth and customer satisfaction includes two distinctive marketing strategies: 

Direct and Customer-centric marketing.

An Innovative Marketing Hybrid to Directly Grow Your #SmallBiz

​The main goal for today’s marketing team is to get someone to buy a product without killing the marketing budget. This is not a new phenomenon. However, companies today are using a “disruptive” method in communication channels like email, on a daily basis. In reality, it’s another type of unwanted advertising, i.e.junk email or mail.

The old-age advertising methods, newspaper, radio, television, and direct mail, hit a few targets using a method of spray and pray, which was very costly. Most companies thought a 1-2% response rate was acceptable. Soon, this advertising will be another footnote in advertising history.

On the brighter side of advertising, especially for small companies, Multi-channel marketing uses a variety of communication channels. Such as direct mail, email, landing pages and channels in social media, are hitting their target market with very good results. For example, increased response rates and higher revenue. As a bonus, relevant customer communication, earns trust from consumers. Adding positive vibes for the brand image of your company.
