What they're saying about us


QuoteWhat impresses us the most is the time spent in truly understanding who we are as a company and providing us valuable insight that helps us grow. It's not a "cookie cutter" approach to marketing and his advice and guidance has paid dividends for us!


- Owner, Open Eye Global

QuoteAfter one discovery meeting they nailed it; introducing us to an agency who not only had the right skill set but a personality that meshes well with ours. It was a great experience and saved us the time and effort of issuing our own REP and having to pitch meetings with agencies who weren't right for us.

Jen Gaffney

- Director Digital Marketing, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services

QuoteThe Agency Guide listened to our needs, learned about our organization, and provided a thoughtful analysis of our marketing goals. They suggested the ideal partner for our goals, including a detailed explanation of why they chose them and how they could help. We were impressed by their responsiveness and willingness to help us every step of the way.

QuoteWorking with TAG has made our work much easier. TAG very quickly sourced an excellent PR specialist for us who did a terrific job. Our experience is that TAG is responsive, responsible, and very professional. We plan on continuing to working with TAG for the foreseeable future.

Gregg Ward

- Founder, Executive Director

QuoteTAG has been integral in matching us with the right agency that truly understood our needs and valued our business. TAG has been very transparent and helpful throughout the entire process and I would highly recommend them.

Kari Luu

- Marketing Manager, Jenny Craig

QuoteTAG made the process of sourcing a reliable agency extremely simple by helping us clearly define project scope and then finding an agency that was perfectly suited to be our partner.

Jamie Lynn Alber

- Ecommerce Manager,

QuoteTAG saved us the extensive time and effort it would have taken to source and SEO agency. They took the time to understand exactly what we needed, so they could nail the agency's recommendations the first time around. This saved us hours of research and the hassle of having to vet each agency we came across. If you're looking to hire a new agency, start with TAG - you won't regret it!
