Some of Our Clients

“Barbara listened to what we said we needed and hoped to learn in order to assess and improve our direct mail program. Barbara not only delivered on our felt needs but also surfaced unfelt needs and gave us more than we knew we needed to know. On the tactical level, we came away with a lot of sound analysis and practical recommendations to work with now as we grow our direct mail program.”
