MacRAE's has been an amazing partner to Pathway Communications for its digital marketing efforts. There we worked with Sakshi who was our Account manager. We have nothing but great things to say for her! She is extremely thorough professional and responsive to any requests we may present. She has the required expertise and experience in the digital marketing space which helped us in getting the desired results. Her team has helped increase our organic sessions on our website with continual month over month increase. Our keyword rankings have increased and we have seen so much more traffic to our website. We cannot thank them enough for all of the hardwork and effort put in to making Pathway's digital presence felt.
