Another branch of content marketing, digital PR can help quickly and efficiently build your construction product brand, while also bumping it up the search engine rankings.

When it comes to the battle of growth versus loss, it’s a combination of both attracting customers, but ensuring that they are retained and engaged. 

Dawn Ostroff was joined by comedian and host of the Shake-Up Podcast Alexis Gay to discuss this in more detail.
