“I know you!” I hear that a lot, thanks to Virginia Business. We started advertising there more than 10 years ago. And our name recognition has soared. Corporate and government leaders often get an “aha” look on their faces when we first meet and say: “I know you! I saw your ad in Virginia Business.” That instant recognition is important to us at Dixon Hughes Goodman.
