From Our Clients
iconI would like to take a second to highly commend your Videographer, Jason, who did our Sponsored video shoots!!! He is absolutely amazing to work with! I know Realtors are a hard bunch to coordinate and work with and he handles the effort with skill, professionalism and top-notch customer service! His work is creative and on point!
Deb Olson - Broker, Realtor, ABR Spring Realty
iconThe 100th Anniversary CASH BASH promo that the Northwest Herald created, implemented and managed for us was fantastic! It drastically increased our exposure in celebrating Home State Bank’s 100th year in business.
Brett Berg - VP/Director of Marketing, Home State Bank
iconPlanitSave.com is an advertising plan that has worked very well for us. Our existing customers can save money and we have gained many new costumers because of the discount offers that are promoted in Morris Daily Herald and MorrisDailyHerald.com.
Mike and Pam Voytek - Owners, Lindy’s Chili & Gertie’s Ice Cream
iconShaw Media has been tremendous to work with. The transition that we experienced shifting was not only well worth the risks but flawless, due mostly in part to the knowledge, professionalism and dedication of the team at Shaw.
Kristen Capista - Financial Aid Advisor, The Salon Professional Academy
iconI was completely unaware of what digital marketing was. Pam and Brett explained it completely and I decided to advertise on national sites for the next 4 months by targeting people who are active in the real estate market. Received my first report and was completely surprised as to the results. I was above average on my click through rate. There was a screen shot of my ad on Fox News, to see what my ad looks like online. People have even told me, I saw your ad.
David R. Hufford - Broker, Karges Realty
iconThe Planit Save program has been a great way to bring new customers to our car wash without any out-of-pocket expense. I now take advantage of this deal every month!
Diane Klinges - Manager, Landmark Auto Wash & Detail Center
iconIn today's world of information overload, it's increasingly important to find the right balance between traditional print advertising and digital marketing possibilities. My sales representatives at Shaw Media took the time to listen and understand Nazareth Academy's needs in order to come up with an effective advertising strategy for our Open House campaign. Their knowledge and creative assistance were invaluable.
Alena Murguia - Public Relations Coordinator, Nazareth Academy
iconWe have been running digital advertising on TheHerald-News.com for over a year now and we continue to see an increase in traffic to our website. We now see, on average, 150 clicks per month from readers on TheHerald-News.com going to the Tyson Motors website.
