Behind the Scenes

Does advertising make the phone ring? Does it drive customers to your door? Without any question it does, but maybe not in the timeframe you are looking for.  We all are in sales of one form or another even if you are a computer techie you have to sell yourself to get a job, to advance your business and even to get married. It’s all about sales and how you advertise yourself.
