We're The Ones - Title Slide

Volunteer Firefighters and EMS Personnel

“As a direct result of the We’re The Ones print materials, videos, web sites and advertising strategies, our recruitment numbers for volunteer firefighters in Rockland County, NY increased by almost 200%!

With a force of over 3,000 men and women, recruitment is key to maintaining a strong service. Steve’s marketing guidance to the Committee has proved invaluable since he joined our committee in 2001.  And, with the creation and roll out of the Canned Fire Program, he has delivered a quality and dedication far beyond our expectations.

His entire team has shown an incredible responsiveness to our needs in every facet of our operations.”

Like most independent telephone companies, we have numerous marketing tasks and goals. he helped us crystallize and focus those goals and recommended a course of action that came at our needs from several angles.

Scotts Lawn Service – Franchised

“Just thought I’d give you an update…thanks to you, this year’s revenue has already matched last year. Roughly 20% of our customers quit every off season (industry standard is 30%). So, that means we’ve already made up that lost revenue and we still have another 6 months in the season to grow.

The postcards and online newsletter are working, they are a hit, and we have only rolled out the first 2 in the series!”
