Freight Marketing Questions: How to Put it All Together
Episode Transcript

In this episode, we’re covering a question submitted by a podcast listener who’s a freight broker seeking advice on how to create a marketing plan with two different websites and no social media presence. Host Blythe Brumleve suggests focusing both websites on a specific niche and using cold emailing to reach potential customers. She also recommends verifying email lists to ensure they are legitimate before using them for marketing purposes, plus the reasoning behind each of these strategies.
