Unfortunately, many businesses get so focused on driving new customers that they miss out on the opportunities to do more and continued business with the customers they already had. In this presentation, Rich Austin from Trembling Giant Marketing, LLC will go over techniques that your business can employ to stay engaged with your existing customers.
