You likely were down to essential staff to run your business running to serve those customers who needed you most. Salespeople may have been working in the plant, or trying their best to stay connected to your current customers. But, outreach to new prospects was put on the back burner.
In this presentation, we’ll talk about the importance of marketing and the role it plays in staying connected to prospects and customers.
