Before I found The Grid Agency I haphazardly posted things on social media because I thought I was supposed to. No plan, no consistency, and very meager results. Now, we have a cohesive, authentic, industry specific online presence that continues to adapt and expand. The whole Grid Agency team is approachable and extremely good at what they do, and they are real people who know my business and I intimately. Hiring The Grid Agency was definitely one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made!
