What People Are Saying About Us!

There's no one better to inform you of our reputation than our past customers
and amazing staff!! Here are a few of their appreciated remarks.
  • When I first contacted NMG I was looking for help with social media posts. Little did I know that I would gain that and a WHOLE lot more – things I never even knew I needed! Even before our formal working relationship began, Jim had me booked as a guest chef at a local food fest, and then was right there with me when a great opportunity came my way to expand my business with a whole new initiative. If I had still been “on my own” I never would have been able to put these ideas into a plan and get them actually implemented – but with the help of NMG it has gone from idea to reality in a few short months! The NMG team is my marketing department, project management team, video production team and resource for so many issues that arise in the everyday running of a small business. Even though I am not their only client, I always feel and am treated like I am. They are responsive to all my requests and needs, making it so easy to put my trust and confidence in them. In my 21 plus years of owning and running a small business, I had grown very used to people/companies dropping the ball and not following through with what they say they will do. NMG has changed all of this for me – they do what they say they will do when promised! I am so happy to have found the perfect fit for my marketing needs. I highly recommend the entire staff at NMG for anyone looking to grow and reach the next level of their business.

  • With the nervousness that comes with starting a new job, the one thing that puts me at ease is working with NMG! They keep our Facebook page interesting and they make sure to be interactive with our followers which makes us stand out from our competitors. I love that we can bounce ideas off each other and create the best marketing for my customers. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for that extra touch to their company.

  • NMG has helped us enhance our brand equity, and continues to manage a respectable chunk of our marketing presence. They focus on lead generation for us, digitally and in-print. We love the creative videos they create and often receive compliments! They manage three of our Facebook pages and continue to find creative ways to interact with our audience. We absolutely love the new campaign "Let me take you to Zounds" - we think this is a winner! Thank you, NMG! You are a pleasure to work with!

He is fair in his dealings with his direct reports, and he worked hard to accomplish any goals set for him. He is willing to go the extra mile when necessary, and he is a team player.
