“I take the time to fully understand every aspect of each of my client’s businesses, their products and the type of customers they’re trying to reach so I can help them with all facets of their direct marketing. From ensuring their copywriting is compelling with a strong call-to-action, to understanding their ideal customer so I can compile a list that closely matches that target audience’s demographics, education, income and lifestyle to provide solutions that will maximize their ROI.”
