It has now been five years since we began working with your company, originally GD Consulting and now Reality Marketing Associates, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we have appreciated the outstanding work you have done for us.

When we first started working with you on a few small projects, I never would have guessed that you would have such a major impact on our marketing success and our company as a whole.

Here are just a few of the successful projects you have completed for us:

  • You helped us launch and have done all the marketing for our [new] department. Thanks mostly to your marketing efforts, the department has reached over $1 million in annual premiums in just three and a half short years and continues to be our fastest-growing department. Your direct mail letters, monthly ghost-written columns, print advertisements, and market surveys have been directly responsible for this success. 

  • Your marketing efforts have helped our group insurance program ... continue to grow. Your direct mail letters alone have resulted in over a quarter of a million dollars in premiums per year from new customers joining the program during the last three years.

  • Your direct mail copywriting and package design skills have proven to be extremely successful: you have regularly achieved response rates of 5% - 10% from new lists and you reached response rates of over 20% to existing client lists. Your response tracking systems have allowed us to keep on top of the results we were achieving.

  • Your work in many different areas of our company have been invaluable: your help in reorganizing our management and staff structure helped us become more efficient and better organized; your extensive surveys have taught us about the needs of our clients and prospects and helped us improve our service and client satisfaction; your redesign of our forms has helped streamline and integrate our paperwork and project a more professional image; your copywriting skills have helped all our corporate communications—from client letters to annual reports to proposals—become clearer and more effective.

Your insistence on marketing that works in terms of measurable sales and profits has been a revelation to us. We never knew how ineffective the “standard” approaches were until we experienced firsthand the results of your unique approach. You also showed an unwavering commitment to our best interests when it came to keeping expenses down and results up.

So once again I want to thank you for your efforts to date and let you know that we look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.

Since you started working with us... there has been a dramatic change in the effectiveness of our marketing. You have shown us that the type of advertising we were doing previously was not only ineffective, but also that it was only the tip of the marketing iceberg. During these past few months we have learned to trust your instincts since you have proven to be right time and time again with regard to what will work and what will not. 

Your ads have brought us immediate and measurable results, something which we had not previously experienced.  This direct feedback has also shown us which media are the most effective for us to use in the future, rather than throwing our money away on worthless advertising.  

I would highly recommend your services to any business that wanted to get serious about its marketing and advertising efforts.  Beyond that, I would advise them to get out of your way and trust you to do the job—you'll take them in the direction which is best for their future growth and profitability.  

Thank you again for your great work.

I wanted to take a few moments to bring you up to date on our yellow pages results.  If you recall, we took advantage of your "Yellow Pages Critic" service last year and used the ideas and advice you provided in our ad.  

The directory with our new ad has been in circulation for about six months now, and I have to rate the results we are getting a big success! The biggest difference we have noticed is that we now get many more of the calls we want to get and fewer of the ones we don't. The people who call are asking exactly the type of questions which lead to sales, and our job has been made much easier.  

In conclusion, I can say that I highly recommend your yellow pages advertising approach. Our results show that your ideas work just the way you suggested, even with our "do-it-yourself" ad.

I wish to thank you very much for your guidance in developing a new full page ad in the Vancouver Yellow Pages. Your fresh approach on how to get people's attention and how to communicate is well reflected in our new ad. I am very pleased with the results...

[You have] served us as a consultant in a number of different management areas such as sales, public relations, marketing, media advertising, corporate structure, and retail operations...[and have] shown a wide range of expertise and excellent insights into potential solutions.

I would highly recommend [you] as a management consultant to any organization seeking to improve itself.

Over the years we have worked together, and in a wide variety of settings and circumstances, you have always shown an incredible ability to take any situation—no matter how difficult—and improve on it quickly and effectively.

I have seen you take a disorganized and unmotivated group of employees and turn them into a coherent team working towards common goals within just a few months. I have seen you work with limited budgets and other restrictions yet still manage to market our services effectively. And your ability to understand our message and express it in your advertising and copywriting is remarkable.

Thank you for all that you have done, and I look forward to a long and rewarding relationship in the future.

Dr. TIm Trader, D.N.
