Here’s What Our Clients Have to Say About Our Marketing Consulting Services


“Before I met Joe I was extremely anxious about marketing my product. I had no idea which tools I needed to use to make customers know who I am and what I make. His marketing strategies gave me a huge confidence, sense of clarity and a great branding message book to promote my brand. And I know that he’ll be always there when I need him.”
–Kader Ucar, Owner, Palo Alto Pasta

“When starting a new business, you want an intelligent, highly skilled marketing strategist. Thank you Joe Franklin for helping me craft the marketing plan for my business. His demeanor is calm and his advice on point. Joe is a sincere person who’s first and primary concern is helping his clients grow their business. Use his services and you are guaranteed more success.”
–Vijay Pullur, Founder, SocialTwist [360° Marketing Map Client]

“I brought Joe in to create content for the MOG app and got a lot more than I bargained for. Joe developed a customized marketing plan for our online music streaming service that was instrumental in our growth at a time when we were fighting for our survival. It was partially due to Joe’s thought leadership that prepared us for a buyout from Beats electronics. Through it all, I never got the impression from Joe that any of it was work. He lives to strategize and loves a challenge.”
–Andre Marinescu, former VP, Marketing, MOG

“Joe and his team at FMC were instrumental in helping us gain market share when we were in our early startup stage. They developed for us an engaging opening video that told our brand story and unique value proposition in just 60 seconds. Joe and his team are highly professional and just fun to be around. Without them I’m not sure Digit Whiz would be around today.”
–Kasey Brown, Owner, Digit Whiz

“Working with Joe on our 360° Marketing Map has been a very positive and pleasurable experience. He has a fantastic ability to understand our line of business and cull it into a customized plan that will help us grow. Joe helped us position [Saba] in a very noisy environment. He exceeded our expectations and the word got out that [Saba] is an important provider in the talent management solutions space. In addition, Joe has a very solid understanding of the social media landscape and has helped us tremendously in that area as well. If you’re in search of a marketing professional, you need look no further. I recommend Joe without any reservations.”
–Andrea Bassman, Business Development Manager, Human Concepts (now Saba Software)

“Joe and his team are my go-to marcom resource whenever I’m in need. An awesome person. Beautiful spirit. And a great asset to any high stress (or no stress) business environment. When I was CD at Gyro in San Francisco, he came in for a writer position and literally didn’t leave. That was 10 years ago and I continue to rely on Joe to help me with all manner of marcom strategies and tactics.”
– Corwin Stone, Creative Director, Active Network

“Joe is engaged, collaborative and committed to his work, his colleagues and the clients he serves. He has a fresh eye to offer marketing initiatives of all types that is enhanced with solid experience in direct marketing and the full scope of the internet. Hope our paths cross again.”
– Andry Patrick, CEO, liveBooks & Pinhole Pro

“When I contacted Joe about my online business,, it had barely started to take shape. His ideas and marketing insight really made the difference. Without Joe’s feedback and ideas my small business wouldn’t be where it is today. Very impressed!”
– Hans Brekke, Owner, Reel Feedback

“Joe’s writing chops are second to none. I’ve worked with him on numerous projects over the years, from direct mail to web to mobile apps. Regardless of the message and where it appears, he always comes up with interesting ways to engage the reader and drive conversions. Whenever I have an important project, I turn to Joe.”
– Andrea Bassman, Account Director, Hutner Group
