Should you use voice broadcasting for your company’s personal list?


There's a lot to consider when working with your personal, in-house marketing list.  These are the prospects, customers, clients and referrals that you have built up.  They recognize you already. 

So what do you do?  That really depends on the size of your list and whether you want to bring them through a marketing funnel or go for a one close effort.
