York & Chapel (Fabio Selmi)
Digital marketing tactics don't work anymore. Research shows companies waste around 56% of their marketing investment on short-term tactics. They communicate the wrong message to the wrong audience through the wrong channel. And what do they hear from their agency? Be patient. Increase your budget. It's the competition, the algorithm, the packaging, the name...
While other agencies ask you to invest more in short-lived and costly tactics, York & Chapel will help you streamline your marketing spending and get better results through a sustainable long-term marketing strategy.
