More than 20 years ago, Jim had an ambitious idea which centered on a simple philosophy: “Like any good relationship, customers want your loyalty and respect. They want to know you’re looking out for them, listening to them, and tailoring your products and services to quench their needs,” says Jim.
With this simple, yet powerful, philosophy, Jim started a movement. Nurture marketing uses a principled approach of marketing with persistence, consistency, reciprocity, rapport, and ethics. Today, these principles are driving Nurture Marketing LLC to continuously build and sustain connections, and cultivate relationships that last a lifetime.
