As digital channels have taken more and more attention, it’s easy to push traditional media coverage aside, but do so at your own risk.Getting a nice mention in a magazine or newspaper read by your ideal client is an awesome awareness and trust builder, but today it also comes with a high authority website link making it even more potent.My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Christina Nicholson.
