Why EMC is Different
Emerging Markets Consulting LLC was founded in April of 2004 after our company leadership spent time in New York working for a large financial institution. As such, this gives us over 20 years experience honing our skills and developing relationships.
Emerging Markets has been developing our micro cap investor database since 2005, resulting in a large target audience that we use to promote client stock opportunities. We have years of experience in digital PPC advertising across Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, so we know the keywords and proven tactics that can get you in front of investors.
EMCs marketers understand that time on your landing page is an important metric because that is our opportunity to tell your story. Emerging also boasts relationships with the best affiliate network in the micro cap sphere. This allows us to buy targeted data from our industry counterparts, Fortune 500 and political databases to further reach the right investors that want to hear your story. Our team is second to none – we think outside the box and leverage the AI and machine learning resources through Google and Facebook as part of digital campaigns.
Why does this matter? If you don’t think outside the box and you use the same lists every other firm is using, your story is not heard.
One of the best benefits of working with EMC is that we have developed and nurtured relationships by calling stock brokers telling our clients stories and we maintain relationships today. Let us help tell your story, connect with one of our team members for personalized service.
Experienced professionals that you trust are the only option. The team you work with must have industry proven credentials,
decades of experience and integrity to represent you through all phases of growth – and in front of all types of audiences.
