Are You Unintentionally Holding Back Your Online Marketing?

Have you heard people talk about marketing online and off-line (i.e. print ads) as if they were completely different animals? This might have been more common even just a few years ago, but now, of course, we know that the two can be connected, especially with the rise of social media and next-generation smart phones.
