Our Favorite Vendors

When we work with a company that provides a great product and backs it up with equally fantastic service, we want to shout their praises from the rooftops. (Hey, there is a marketing strategy in there somewhere. . .) Here are some companies that we have had the pleasure of working with and would encourage you to patronize should you have the need.  They rock and we have a feeling you will be happy you chose them too. To be transparent, we have sighed up as partners with some of these companies, for which we might get some sort of a reward (like donuts!), but no matter the case, we honestly think they are swell companies to work with and we would promote them either way.  If you have a less than stellar experience with any of them, let us know.   Email Marketing by Mad Mimi We’ve been using Mad Mimi for over 4 years and they have consistently provided both a great service as well as some...

Does technology make you go: Arrrgh!?

Does technology make you go: Arrrgh!?

Does technology make you go: Arrrgh!? Many of our clients come to us because the latest technology tends to make their eyes cross. They need guidance on how to navigate the ever changing world of media and technology. It’s what we do and we won’t judge you if you don’t know a hashtag from a hole in the ground. We consult with you, advise, guide and encourage you to get the most out of web & social media (and not go crazy in the process). We’ve never understood those marketing companies who want to take over everything. It’s your brand and business so our methodology is one of collaboration. Sure, we can handle the tactical day-to-day things for you, get you organized but our first priority is YOU and making sure the message is clear and authentic. Check out our Services and Make...

Client Love

High fives and kudos from some of our clients.

Julienne’s work is first-rate. No amount of overstatement by me can compete with the reality of her skill. I grant that this is a field I know nothing about, but speaking strictly as someone who put all of his ignorance and all of his faith in her expertise, I feel unassailable to say that you’d be wrong not to.

-Ray Buckley, Actor, Cinematographer & Author

Julienne Givot did a masterful job of redesigning Her intuition and skills combined to provide a breakthrough experience for my readers. The world I write about is complex and off-beat. As such, it required a visual translation that quickly engaged first-time visitors as sustained those who frequently return.

Julienne accomplished just that.  She was fun to work with, extremely responsive, and incredibly creative.  I plan to work with her again at the next available opportunity.
– A. C. Burch, Author, The HomePort Journals, A Book of Revelations 

I just wanted to compliment you and thank you for the wonderful job you did in designing our website. Several of our members have emailed me to say how much they liked it. If you ever need a written reference in the future, you can contact us. We would be more than happy to supply it.

Secretary, South Florida Petanque Club
