FEATURING: Farimah Milani
Having been ADHESIVE&CO’s first client, we know firsthand that you have worked on optimizing your marketing platforms. How do you feel your virtual identity is important in capturing new business?
Our industry has changed a great deal since I have been in business. I feel my virtual identity is very important in communicating with clients and creatives. Working with AD&CO was insightful in seeing the ways to utilize the different social media channels. They helped me analyze how I was currently using those channels and how I could optimize them without much more of a time commitment from my staff.
