"As one of the leading air shows in America, we are dependent upon drawing a large crowd to our event and much of that is dependent upon the quality of our marketing. Over the past seven years, Herb Gillen Advertising has been a valuable contributor to making our show a success. Utilizing Herb Gillen as our off-site marketing department has allowed me and our staff to concentrate on other show management functions with the peace of mind of knowing that our marketing is being handled professionally. They have a unique understanding of what I need as an air show organizer and I can always trust them to provide sound advice and spectacular creative for our show."

"One of the most successful decisions I have made in the eleven years of producing the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show was to bring the Herb Gillen Agency on board with our event. Herb Gillen and his talented staff bring numerous innovative and cost-effective marketing strategies to the table. His company's ability to leverage our advertising and marketing budget was simply outstanding! Not to mention, the promotional products they produced were some of the most eye-catching graphics and visuals I have ever seen. Record crowds, record sales, record profits...need we say more?"

"On behalf of the Rotary Club of Upper Arlington, I would like to thank Herb Gillen and his agency for the great work and results from our club engaging their agency. Their firm's professionalism, ability to react on the fly, and the results we have seen from gaining exposure to the community has been phenomenal. From web site design, strategic event promotions, print campaigns, video presentations, newsletter mailers and social media, our club has been recognized nationally for their efforts. The results speak for themselves. Our only regret is that our club hadn't engaged their agency earlier."

"Two years ago, I was already past due on a total revamping of my website, email, social media, promotion and marketing. I thought that I would have to deal with multiple agencies to get all of the categories completed, and the magnitude of the task had me in a dilemma. I read some great testimonials for the Herb Gillen Agency, and I was already aware of his dedication to the ICAS Foundation. The next thing I did was to commit to Herb. Then, he and I identified my separate areas that needed to be upgraded or initiated. I am happy to say that Herb and his staff are stellar in all disciplines of advertising, marketing, promotion and communications. They have covered all areas thoroughly and to completion. The team is a joy to work with, and will put your mind at ease. A way I measure the success of business experience is, If you had to do it all over again, would you? My answer...Heck yes, but sooner! Don't be a procrastinator like me. Contact Herb Gillen Advertising ASAP, and you will be on the road to success."
