OUTdrive Episode 102 with Aric Bremer
While it may seem like the world of advertising is all headed toward the Metaverse, there is still value in traditional marketing. Radio, television, and newspaper, combined with digital components, can make an impact. In this episode of OUTdrive, I sit down with Aric Bremer to discuss how businesses can use a multichannel approach to reach their goals and objectives.
Aric is a sales manager at Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group, where he works with numerous local businesses to put together comprehensive marketing plans that bring a positive return on their investments.
