Why Keeping in Touch with Customers is More Important than Ever

2020… what a ride! It’s fair to say that we all, and we truly mean all of us, have been thrown some curveballs to deal with this year on just about every level. We didn’t want to mention it by name as, frankly, it’s been given more publicity than Katie Price’s poor outfit choices over…
