I have worked with Brad on a few projects. With my current business, Brad researched and designed a simple and efficient strategic communications plan to help my company, Austek Play, stand out to our target market in what is a competitive niche industry. The strategy Brad developed well exceeded our expectations, delivering a very high rate of inquiry and conversion. I will use his expertise again in the future.
