Notable Quotes: 

“Make sure you’re not that hammer looking for a nail scenario, really try to do some internal investigations and see where are we in our development? Are we that company that’s still trying to define things or do we have a really good handle on our ideal customer profile, our value to the market, and we’ve already got some basic wins in that column? Because that will help you decide which type of an agency might suit you best.”

                                                            – Seth Kinney

            “You get what you pay for…at the end of the day, as long as the ROI is there, cost
                        really shouldn’t be your decision maker.”

                                                            – Seth Kinney
