B&B completed a pilot program to test The Marketplace with some of their current retail customers in June and July 2020. Feedback highlights B&B’s professionalism, creativity, and understanding of retail needs, as well as ease of use within The Marketplace. Two reviews:
“The new Marketplace campaigns look great, and the messaging is spot on for today’s retail environment. It’s not just the same old stuff, which really helps me stand out in my market. I love having all the different advertising elements pre-built, as it makes coordinating my messaging easier than ever.”

“The Marketplace is what I’ve been looking for. The comprehensive assets make all my advertising say the same thing at the same time. The team at B&B is super responsive to my needs and
always asking the right questions to make sure every advertising dollar is a wise investment.
Add to that the great pricing and the friendly staff, and I wonder how I ever did it without them.”
