The “Mace’s” Advertising Statement
Striving to meet and/or exceed the industry standard, The Mace & Crown is constantly updating: pricing, advertising solutions, and customer relationship management (CRM) tools, with the client in-mind.
Understanding economic variables and how they impact individuals, small-businesses, and even large enterprises has played a vital role in how we develop each of our services.
Our client’s experience with advertising weighs heavily on our minds and we continue to reach for the highest level of customer service to ensure that even the smallest purchase receives the same amount of attention as our national clients.
With that being said, we are confident that future clients (and even our current clients) will continue to view our options as competitive and reasonable.
