Bridging the Gap between Online and Offline with Location Data

Nov 28, 2017 12:07:03 PM

I recently had the honor to interview Andrea Ricotti, Sales & Marketing Director at H2H, a communication and marketing agency.

They call him the Billboard Guy because he puts himself out there --spending time in the local businesses as well as putting himself on billboards--and is very knowledgable about the industry. In fact, that has been his number one lead driver. It’s a whole other level to see a guy on a billboard and then have that same guy drop by your business.
