Marketing in Real Life (#IRL)

In marketing, when we leave the digital world behind, what is the perception of your brand #IRL and why does it matter?

Lately you’ve probably heard the term or seen the hashtag #IRL, but what does it mean? IRL stands for in real life, and in marketing it’s how your brand shows up when you’re not in the digital world. In today’s episode we’re talking about making an impact and building community in real life. Join SLAM!

Intelligent, thorough, professional. They bring a level of expertise to our organization that we’ve been missing.

I appreciate their company’s desire to build high levels of trust and communication while exploring creative and uniquely personal business solutions. The staffs’ interactions make it obvious that they care about their customers – viewing them as partners and fellow collaborators rather than just clients. I would highly recommend the SLAM! Agency when exploring marketing and new media needs.
