The benefit of direct marketing is that it is a way to manage costs when reaching qualified prospects with targeted messaging. From a sales perspective, direct marketing establishes a foundation for relationships with counseling services businesses that can benefit from your products or services.

Subscriptions to trade journals and networking are essential for staying on top of industry news and developments.
