Transforming EPD University’s Visibility and Revenue through Strategic Digital Marketing


Our partnership with EPD began in 2018, establishing a foundation for collaborative success. Manny Hondroulis, Vice President at Energy Products Distribution (EPD), outlined his business goals, and we developed and deployed a multichannel marketing plan to achieve them.

The need:

EPD aimed to increase awareness of EPD University, their window film installation training program, and address the industry’s growing demand for skilled installers. The labor shortage in the industry prompted the need for strategic marketing to attract, train, and place individuals interested in becoming installers.
