Phil Bienert, CMO of 1-800 Contacts, weighs in on how his firm is navigating some “pretty dramatic shifts” in the “tools that marketers use to be able to reach customers.” So reports DigiDay.

1800contactsWhen the pandemic began, consumers turned to firms like 1-800 Contacts for their eye care needs. Now that things are opening back up, firms like 1-800 Contacts have to figure out how to retain those customers.
