“We’re pleased to have won this business from one of our competitors. While many companies experience frequent account management turnover we haven’t lost an employee since the company was formed in 2005. The same people managing accounts then are managing accounts for us in 2011. That’s remarkable, in my opinion, and a real value add for our clients along with serving as compelling testimony to the type of company we are”, said Tom Polanski, EVP of Sales and Client Development.
Mr. Polanski continued, “Our experience, stability, technologies, and adherence to core values dramatically increases the probability of client success as defined by hitting targeted performance metrics as a result of a repeatable process. We’ve invested years refining marketing formulas that drive high-quality traffic that converts into sales. Not to be discounted is the fact that we save our clients the cost of testing because we know from years of gathering data where to broadcast messages so that they reach targeted audiences at the right time in the shopping process.”
