“Due to the demand for digital marketing firms and our clients’ needs, we have opened a new division of our company dedicated to pay-per-click ads, social media advertising and all other forms of digital marketing,” added McRae. We’ve stayed in business because we’ve been able to easily pivot to give our clients exactly what will provide value for them.”
