Email Marketing:While the effectiveness of email marketing is debatable, at DMC we’ve seen first-hand the benefits of this marketing tool. Email marketing keeps your clients listening and engaged.

Video is a great way to captivate your audience and keep them interested in what’s new with your business.
Social Media Marketing: Similar to email marketing, some people aren’t convinced that social media is a worthwhile marketing tool. The way we see it, people are glued to their phones using social media apps for hours each day. Why not utilize another touch point with your client? Again, remember the content you put out there is what needs to keep your clients engaged. Make sure it’s interesting and exciting.
Many business owners feel the need to discount their services or products in order to keep their customers returning. Rather than providing a discount, add value to what you are already doing for your client. Show them how your products/services will benefit them. Offer an incentive to upgrade or add a product/service on to what you are already doing for them.
