10 Years and Counting…


Happy Monday to you!

Yesterday, March 1st, 2009, Johnson Direct turned 10-years-old. We could not have achieved this milestone without great clients like you. So, thank you!

Back on March 1st, 1999 my dream was to build a multi/cross-channel marketing communications agency that focused on results. Real, honest-to-goodness marketing that is measurable, testable and helps boost your bottom-line.

Thank you for allowing us to help you reach your goals and for turning my dream into a reality. If you were to ask me 10 years ago if I would have the privilege of working with clients like you, General Mills, Gardner Bender, Microsoft, ABB, Johnson Controls, Reader’s Digest, Harley-Davidson, GE Healthcare and GE Financial, AAA Life, Humana, several Blue Cross plans, Omaha Steaks, LSS, Super Products and many, many others, I would have likely answered that I was interested in working with good people who need great results. I am truly humbled by the clients and friendships we have established in the past 10 years.

A funny thing does happen when you really partner with clients, strive for continuous improvement and look out for their best interests. You grow. You get referrals and the word gets out that the marketing you are doing is indeed working. Yes, even with the economic downturn we are helping clients get measurable results.

It’s an unbelievable feeling when you prove that marketing can still lift sales. The proof is the “thank yous” I continue to receive.

Of course, we are always looking for more client partnerships, so if you know anyone who needs to add measurability to their marketing, please have them call me.

In closing, I am proud of our work together and for the partnership we have created. I look forward to another 10 years of increased marketing ROI with you.
