Our 6 Most Frequently Asked Questions
Invoq FAQs from “What does your agency do?” to “How can you help us increase sales?”
Some people want to know what we, as a marketing agency, can do to improve their marketing strategy; others just want to know how to say our name (seriously).
So for this post, we’re answering our six most frequently asked questions.
How do you pronounce your company’s name and what does it mean?
Invoq is pronounced the same way as invoke. While it’s not spelled the same way, it is a nod to one if its definitions: to cause, call forth, or bring about.
The means and methods of marketing are constantly changing. In order to connect the dots between the ever-evolving marketing scene (algorithms changes, social platform updates, best practice re-writes, etc.) and business goals, strategy adjustments — minor and major — are always needed.
It’s a good thing we like to invoq change.
