What Others Say

I can’t recommend Marlo and her team more

We hired Marlo and her firm to guide us in marketing the opening of our newest senior housing asset in 2021. We were in the process of reorganizing our internal marketing team and bringing on Marlo at this critical time allowed for us to outsource both the top-line strategy needed to achieve our sales goals, but also all execution including digital, ad creation, branding, microsite creation, PR, and copywriting. The impact of marlo marketing’s initiatives were a direct correlation to successful lead generation and therefore revenue growth, exceeding our budget expectations. I can’t recommend Marlo and her team more.

jumpstarted our social presence

Over the critical first few years of our brand’s life, the marlo team was a strategic and consistent partner, working with us to establish our brand identity and bring it to life, most notably in the social space. From setting the look, feel and tone of the brand, to creating can’t-miss content/photography, to coordinating all the right influencer and like-minded brand partnerships, they handled everything soup to nuts to ensure that we stood out and moved the needle. Perhaps most importantly, the team was consistently flexible, professional and service-oriented – and willing to work with us every step of the way as we navigated the twists and turns of a young, emerging brand together.

there’s only one choice…and that’s marlo marketing

I’ve been in the restaurant business for over 10 years now and I’ve had a number of agencies. I’ve worked with marlo for over five years now, and I can say without a doubt that they have helped us get to places we never even thought imaginable. marlo has helped us grow our brand to not only being well known in Boston, helping us win countless Best of Boston awards, but also they've allowed us to expand our brand presence outside of the Boston area to get us notable recognition in many major national magazines. For us at Area Four, there’s only one choice…and that’s marlo marketing.

such a responsive, professional, and results-oriented team

Thank you for all the work you have done on behalf of the Boston Book Festival. Despite the rain on festival day, turnout was amazing! And we well know that good turnout is a function of great coverage, and the marlo marketing team made sure of that. It was a pleasure to work with such a responsive, professional, and results-oriented team.

integrating all aspects of marketing

In less than 18 months, marlo marketing has elevated the Alchemista brand in ways that I would not have thought possible when I initially came to them to just handle PR. I was very skeptical at the outset that outsourcing my marketing to an outside agency could ever achieve the same level of quality, care, and responsiveness, that an in house team could provide. In this short time, not only has marlo allayed my initial concerns, but I frankly cannot imagine any other approach for my business. Their approach of truly integrating all aspects of marketing from PR, to storytelling, to website, and demand gen -- not to mention important introductions to potential customers -- is something that every business should consider. Especially as a fast-growing startup, marketing needs are highly unpredictable, with ebbs and flows, and more skills needed than a startup -- even a late-stage one can afford. To be able to reach out and have the marlo team handle everything from sales decks to drafting RFP responses, to email campaigns, would require a massive in house marketing team -- which would be exponentially higher cost than marlo's fees, not to mention the overhead of hiring and maintaining a large number of employees to handle it all. Even with unlimited funding available, outsourcing seems to me to be the best use of funds. The ROI that marlo marketing has been able to provide is not just measurable in revenue, but the intangibles of knowing that all aspects of Alchemista now truly match my long-term vision for the brand.

true professionals

Marlo has assembled a great team of true professionals at marlo marketing to support our brand building and PR initiatives. They have worked for us to execute campaigns, conduct desk-sides, follow up and come up with creative positioning of our treatments resulting in some excellent exposure and national press. The team, I consider, are 'real' sans the 'fabulous attitude' exuded by many other PR groups. It's a big deal when a real Yankees fan hires someone out of Boston but they've proven to be really worth it – I strongly recommend them!

they have delivered results

The marlo team has done an outstanding job getting out the Narragansett Beer story. We have received countless placements since 2009 on both the national and hyper-local level. They have delivered results with industry experts, traditional media outlets and cultural influencers. The team is great at developing an annual plan and then executing against it regularly.

Mark Hellendrung President, Narragansett Beer

we’ve been thrilled with publicity we’ve received

marlo marketing did an incredible job in terms of letting us meet the right influencers, whether that was bloggers or print media. We were able to coordinate our VIP openings to allow us to break into the market effectively. It was a very big deal for us to find the right local partner. Juice Press has the opportunity to be a national company. I feel like marlo’s been tremendously influential in that aspect. That’s just been consistent with all of our interactions. We’ve been thrilled with publicity we’ve received and so far our business has been terrific.

they understood our objectives

We reached out to marlo marketing, they came on board, they understood our objectives [for the Lawn on D] in terms of reaching diverse audiences from the young people to the community of Boston and come up with an ingenious approach to how to reach each of those audiences in the ways they like to be reached…that has resulted in a small urban open space being visited by nearly a quarter of a million people. If I was again in a position wanting to reach different audiences using different forms of marketing media…I’d reach out to marlo marketing. They know how to get that done.
