i think you missed the need for quality and professional content. businesses wanted to be represented right and not by instagram

Thank you Pittsburgh, very kind. Bryan - I usually stay away from telling clients what they should think or do. It is our job to show them what it is that they need and to give them a differentiation factor. Businesses don't know what being represented right means. They don't teach that. It's your job to make your services irresistible. Clients want to look good and pay as little as possible for that. But what that means that is what they are mostly clueless about.
