Client Background
Quest Capital & Risk Management, Inc. is a well-established financial services firm led by S. Joseph DiSalvo, ChFC®, with over 25 years of industry experience. The company focuses on building long-term client relationships and providing personalized investment and income strategies.

Client testimonial

"Prior to working with Eight Digit Media we were struggling with our digital marketing efforts, we had inconsistent results combined with a number of back end technical issues that we needed solved. Immediately after deciding to use EDM we saw a dramatic increase in our results, and the back end technical issues that we were struggling with begin to fade away. Today a year later after partnering with EDM, we are consistently driving people to our webinars, we have a steady flow of qualified prospects, and are closing new business. Chris Ross and his team at EDM have been responsive and are willing to work with you to take their process and customize it to your unique needs. Bottom line if you're committed to digital marketing, you will find a good partner in EDM."
