Read what some of our clients have said
about our services...
Vancouver, British Columbia
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
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
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 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.

Retail produce and gourmet shop
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
Thank you again for your great
Devak Lock & Key
Inc., Vancouver, British
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
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

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

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