About Marketing can assist with your tailor-made marketing plan to suit your needs and industry, taking into consideration your service offering, prospects, customers and suppliers.

Press Releases
Topics are identified, press releases are drafted and then distributed. Publications are reviewed on a weekly basis and relevant articles can be highlighted and forwarded to the sales team for information and possible action. Our regular l
