Packages

These are packages that work. I don't generally give spot rates. The reason is that if you go to the car dealer, to buy a car, you don't ask what the alternator costs. A spot is part of a campaign. You shouldn't build your own car, if you aren't an expert; same with your ad campaign. I can build you a custom package. We can talk about it on the phone, if you wish. Email me for an appointment, Mark at freetalklive.com.
