Very Helpful Information

As a marketer in the furniture industry it's very difficult to find bits of information that are applicable to our industry. We're in the brick and mortar industry and alot of people want to help you with the service industry. Our SKU'd View is very good about not only giving you information to help you with marketing but so much more! It's all relevant to furniture which is something I love.
