This year I will switch my username to “password” and
my password to “username” to make each a lot harder for hackers to figure out

 So, you survived another holiday season! Congratulations!

But now, it’s time to get back to work. Wait, what were we doing again?

Oh oh oh, that’s right, we did all this great planning right before we took off for the holidays and now we’re ready to hit the ground running in 2019.

What?! You mean to say that’s not the case for you? Well don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Be sure to download our marketing plan template to get your sales and marketing strategy in place fast. Then check out some upcoming events, industry news, and other content that will help you start the new year off right.

As for us, AFV is going through some changes of our own. The new year is always a great time for reflection and evaluating the way you do business. So, we’ve been doing just that over the past couple weeks…

When it comes to marketing, we’ve always valued content above all else. Over the past year and a half, I have built our team into a marketing factory that pumps out content in all mediums across multiple channels. Historically, we’ve published content because we’ve made a commitment internally to doing so. But making content for the sake of making content is not the business we want to be in. We’re just a small scrappy team that loves good content and good marketing. We want to spend more time on the projects we’re most passionate about.

As for our services, we pride ourselves on our knowledge of the IT channel and overall industry. But not everyone’s needs are the same. So, we’re diversifying our marketing services and making outsourced marketing more accessible. We’re piloting new solutions that better fit the market and will gladly work with your team to customize a solution that best fits your individual needs.

So, if you’ve already been enjoying our content, get ready, because it’s only getting better from here! And if you haven’t worked with us in the past, reach out, we may just be able to help.

Happy Holidays! Here’s to kicking 2019 off right!

Director of Marketing


New Year, New Plan!
