It's amazing what happens when you give a project to someone who knows what they are doing!

“…experts in branding, direct marketing and creativity”

I would recommend The Marketing Machine on multiple levels. In today's competitive market, you have to do everything you can to compete for every patient. We chose The Marketing Machine because of their reputation for being experts in branding, direct marketing and creativity. They have performed beyond our expectations, acting like a true marketing partner in our business by expanding the amount we can get done, helping us stay on top of opportunities to brand and grow our business, as well as being an effective sounding board

“This email program is impressive!”

Six parties (3-4 each) came in just hours after the very first email we sent to our customers. Plus, I couldn't believe how many customers took the time to email us back just to say "thank you" for sending them a personal email. This email program is impressive!

— John Toler - Owner, Bloomsbury Bistro

“Their marketing help and assistance is top notch.”

Thankfully, I began working with The Marketing Machine before I even opened my doors. After creating all of my company's collateral (logos, business cards, etc), they developed a direct mail campaign that we do about 3-4 times per year that single-handedly built my business. Their marketing help and assistance is top notch.

— Mike Satterfield - Owner, Champs Tire

“Surprised beyond my wildest dreams.”

Working with The Marketing Machine has opened up new avenues of thinking and business opportunities I never even thought to explore. Paul pushes me in directions and places emphasis on strategies to help secure old business while opening up avenues for new opportunities. Surprised beyond my wildest dreams.

— Steve Horowitz - Owner, Margaux's Restaurant

“I can’t recommend The Marketing Machine enough.”

I have been a client of The Marketing Machine's for over 9 years. Their approach for targeting quality patients has been instrumental in helping to build my patient base. Furthermore, their vision and customer service has been superior. Their philosophy of setting up a layering of programs for marketing the services we provide has been methodical, professional and nearly turn key. I can't recommend The Marketing Machine enough. Keep up the good work!

— Mark Andrews, D.D.S. - Owner, Mark Andrews Aesthetic & General Dentistry

“We couldn’t be more satisfied with the branding The Marketing Machine created, and I would recommend them to anyone.”

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our company had to change its name recently. Thanks to The Marketing Machine, the branding of the new name has been hugely successful. Through their strategic planning, we received a new logo, website design, marketing brochures, trade show booth and a new sense of pride in the way our company presents itself to the outside world. Their project management skills stayed on top of us to ensure we met our goals and deadlines, while always maintaining the focus necessary to create a great final product. We have now moved into the advertising portion of our rebranding, and The Marketing Machine is not only handling the design, but also the media buys. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the branding The Marketing Machine created, and I would recommend them to anyone.

— Marcus Mayer - General Manager, CenterEdge Software

We have been clients of The Marketing Machine for several years. With their marketing consulting, our company has moved from marketing by the seat of our pants to marketing with strategic planning. All facets of our marketing are pulled together now in an approach that ties them together. This includes direct mail, email marketing fulfillment, website and text mail programs. They are designed in such a way that we have developed a brand that comes across in everything we do. We show a consistent professional face to our customers. We also can measure results and tweak our plan if that needs to be done.

“I am proud of my email marketing campaign now.”

I had been struggling with my email marketing campaign for some time. By struggling I mean my email marketing campaign wasn't working. At all. I was marketing to my customers by email, but I had no idea if my customers were reading my emails - or even receiving them. I knew I was lacking a creative design, and I had no expertise in designing creative marketing emails. Then I found The Marketing Machine. The staff at The Marketing Machine immediately put their creative design talents to work re-designing my email marketing format and content. After the very first email I had customers commenting on how much they noticed (and loved!) my new emails. I noticed an immediate spike in store traffic after a Marketing Machine email was sent to my customers. I am proud of my email marketing campaign now. The creative design that The Marketing Machine uses gives my store the hip, funky vibe customers experience when they walk in the store. I am so glad I found The Marketing Machine!

— Andrea Taggart - Owner, Imaginese Gifts

“They have provided invaluable expertise…”

The team at The Marketing Machine go out of their way to ensure that whatever marketing materials we present to our clients are first rate. They have provided invaluable expertise in the areas of design and printing as we have gone to market with several mission-critical user guides and training materials. Thanks again!

— Joseph Mathis - Director, U.S. Operations for OBS Medical, Ltd.

“…I’m so pleased with everything!”

I just wanted to say thank you for the great work on the website design; I'm so pleased with everything! But above all, I want to say thank you for even coming in below my budget!!! Thanks for another great job!!!

— Ann Sun - Owner, A. Sun Designs

“…creative design that elevated our brand and could not be ignored.”

When we made the decision to embark on our first major direct mail campaign the one thing we knew for sure was that we wanted high-level experts to guide us. We met with three firms and it was clear that The Marketing Machine was far and above the other two. Paul helped lead us through the strategic planning of the campaign and asked all the right questions that we needed to answer. He quickly understood the essence of the CAI brand. He and his team designed a multi-touch direct mail campaign that we were very excited about with a creative design that elevated our brand and could not be ignored.

— Martin Morgan - Marketing Manager, CAI

“I can’t say enough about your excellent customer service…”

I can’t say enough about your excellent customer service, but because it was exceptional, I’d like to mention particulars:

  • You replied to my initial inquiry for information within a couple of hours.
  • Once I explained what I needed, you made product suggestions based upon EXACTLY what I was looking for – not what you were trying to push at the time, nor did you try to up-sell to more expensive options. How refreshing is that?!
  • I received the product samples I requested within 2 business days.
  • After I placed my order and because it was time-sensitive, you emailed me about the progress at regular intervals until the items shipped. As soon as the items shipped, you sent me tracking info for my peace of mind, then you called to make sure I’d received the order and that the items were satisfactory.
  • The quality of the printing and of the items themselves is perfectly suitable.
  • I’ve told several personal and professional contacts about The Marketing Machine / Second Gear and hope my referrals bring you added business because you deserve it!

— Pam McLamb – Conference Center Coordinator, The Clayton Auditorium & Conference Center

6.5% Response Rate — Success!

Just checked the numbers in the system for the families mailer. We have received 584 mailers back, which is about 6.5%. Thought I would share the success! Note from TMM: This message was in regards to a recent direct mail campaign we completed on behalf of Sparians. By the way, a return of 2% is generally considered the target number to hit so 6.5% is phenomenal.

— Adam Ting - Marketing Director, Sparians Bowling Boutique & Bistro

“For the best design work, with true professionals, I highly recommend The Marketing Machine.”

Paul and his team at The Marketing Machine are absolutely amazing at what they do. I needed my corporate identity redesigned, sales material, and a new website. Paul took me through the process and made sure we met the deadlines that had been set. The designs and the experience was far better than I could have imagined. For the best design work, with true professionals, I highly recommend The Marketing Machine.
