Our marketing team struck up a conversation with him on our podcast. This is what he had to say about digital marketing and business growth today.
The Importance of Email Marketing
Email marketing is one of the cost-efficient digital marketing strategies out there but people tend to ignore it probably because it’s been around for years so people underestimate its value.

Going by this simple calculation, there is no limit to the number of people that you can reach via their emails for the purpose of marketing.
