leaseLabs client video series: episode 2 | first communities
The LeaseLabs Client Video Series gives our audience an inside look into what it’s like to work with LeaseLabs, the company culture we thrive on, and showcase the amazing work we’ve done for our clients. We connected with Sparkle Allen, First Communities Vice President of Marketing, at the end of 2016 for their quarterly review and strategize upcoming 2017 digital marketing campaigns.
As you can tell, we’re more than just a marketing vendor, we cultivate a partnership that provides a true boutique agency experience. No…it’s not every day that you’re asked by our team to rap over digital marketing KPI’s, but it is every day that LeaseLabs delivers quality to improve your bottom line.
