She has a deep understanding of online customer acquisition techniques, including social media engagement, relationship management, and exceptional customer service. Most of Mirela’s approach to marketing and business strategy is based on two principles. First, all people have 99.5 percent of their DNA in common, and second everyone has the same goal in life – to survive. She believes that this 99.5 percent allows each business to connect with any potential client. The remaining 0.5 percent makes each person unique, and Mirela shows businesses how to use this to build long-lasting customer relationships.
