Marketing Budget FormulaMarch 13, 2023
How should I spend my marketing budget this year?
I have two options:
1) I have a listing agent who reaches out to specific clients.
2) I can do online or in-person portfolio reviews.
Neither one is cheap, but I can commit to doing at least one of them this year, and would like to, as I’m trying to land at least one more corporate or ad client this year. I’m also hoping to expand my reach, and not always be hired locally/regionally.
