“We are very satisfied with the work of JLLB Media. We decided to work with them due to their personal touch. They were extremely helpful in the planning and delivery of our marketing campaign and were very responsive to our comments and questions. Without their assistance, we would not have been able to make the steps forward that we needed. We are already reaping the benefits of the campaign.

Actually, their marketing services went beyond our expectations. They helped in giving us new direction and worked to develop our social media presence. They continually came up with helpful suggestions that we would not have thought of.

There are no areas that I can point to where they fell short of expectations. I was very impressed that they made sure that we were able to continue with our marketing efforts beyond the term of our contract. They cared about our continuing success.

Thank you, JLLB Media!

JLLB Media Marketing helped us execute our promotional campaign for our relaunched Taco Tour on Lake Street – and in a very, very short timeframe! Juan worked on every detail – from drafting content, to capturing videos, to crafting strategy to encourage people to attend and support our small business clients on Lake Street. He worked quickly, diligently, and creatively to build awareness about this community event. He was extremely enthusiastic about this event and our mission, and it’s evident in his work. He is also receptive to feedback and always looking to have a greater impact in his work.”
