Think back with us to 1983. Ronald Reagan was president. M*A*S*H’s final episode aired on television. Both Microsoft Word and Mario Bros were introduced to the still new world of personal computers and video game consoles. It was the year Jen was born, before Katie’s time, Ann was a junior in high school, and Barb took the leap to start her own business – a small agency dedicated to telling ag’s story.
Over the years since Heartland Marketing Group was founded, our agency has evolved. From work originally done on kitchen tables to a downtown office and then custom-built facility, the bricks and mortar of HMG have changed. Legal pads, typewriters, correction tape, and single line phones have been replaced by a computer at each desk, sophisticated desktop publishing software, and online presence for our clients and ourselves.
From our home on Main Street in Early, HMG reaches into the corners of the world to share our clients’ messages. Sometimes the media is paper. More often our work resides online where it is part of websites we create or in messages delivered to email inboxes or videos streaming on social media. We write, design, and develop custom-tailored materials using our experience, our passion for exceeding our customers’ expectations, and our desire to be forward-thinking. Integrity and transparency guide each of our interactions.
Many agencies are larger. With size comes impersonal service, slow turn around, and often the least experienced staff handling your critical campaign. At HMG, our intimate office space, small staff, and significant experience all combine to ensure you’re getting our best, every time we go to work for you. You aren’t paying us to learn, you’re leveraging our skills – refined and proven – on your behalf. Our experience not only provides resources and solutions, we have also learned the skill of remaining calm in the face of any storm.
Without question, Amazon is one of the grandest success stories of the present generation. It’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, said, “We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” What’s true for this behemoth retailer is true for our small shop. We’re all about YOU.
Thank you for trusting us to do our best work for you. For allowing us to tell your story. For understanding a little grey hair, some artfully disguised, means calm in the chaos of a vibrant world where our mission is to meet the trends, move the needle for you, and be your story-telling partner.
