"As a public school, we don't have a true "marketing" budget and we are very careful to be financially responsible.  We looked to AVS Marketing Group for their expertise and couldn't have been more satisfied!  Our goal was for student recruitment, but we were pretty specific with the type of student we were looking for and the information we wanted to share.  AVS Group provided us with a complete marketing plan and many cost-effective avenues for getting information to the people we needed reach.  Additionally, we were under budget!  The feedback that we've received from our marketing materials has been amazing!  Our materials were eye-catching and gave the professional image we were looking for.  As a result, we have our first student cohort group starting in the fall!  The AVS Group staff was exceptional and made the process easy."
Lynette Livingston, Former Director of Curriculum & Instruction, School District of Mauston

"AVS Group brought the expertise and neutral insight we needed to move forward with developing our new brand. Their help with external research, client and coworker surveying, and design creativity helped us to find a brand that not only reinforces our company’s core values and mission statement, but will be strategic and relevant in the future. AVS Group was easy to work with. They listened to exactly what we needed and came up with a plan that allowed our coworkers to remain a vital part of the process. Something we felt was extremely important for buy-in with the new brand. They gave us the tools we need to move forward with the project with the promise of support as we need it in the future."
Mary Polus, Marketing Director, Winona National Bank

"We were looking for a supporting marketing partner that was professional and stable, and that would be with us for the long term. AVS Group was highly recommended by the local business leaders we talked to and we also liked the fact that they could offer a turn-key solution. They’re full service and they go the extra mile. They’re proactive in looking for other marketing support options for us—they don’t just concentrate on the project at hand."

"AVS Group has taken the time to learn about our specific needs and they operate by similar business principles of high quality work and attention to customer satisfaction. The relationship with the Gerrards and AVS Group is a very good one and we plan on continuing it.”

"It’s been wonderful working with the AVS Group. Communication is important when working on a project like this and they were always able to keep us well informed on the status of project, and let us visually walk through the site and give our feedback. If we wanted adjustments or had ideas, options were given to us. We were always able to reach them by phone or email with an quick response time. They designed a great looking site within our budget and also helped us improve our SEO. The AVS Group is also very personable and easy to work with, I highly recommend them."

I have personally worked with AVS Group over the past 25 years in the two companies I have served...They know how to bring on resources, if needed, to move schedules ahead, or can manage resources well when there are delays. They are able to work well with people of all types of skill levels...They have creative people that help sell the sizzle for all size budgets...in summary, they have a “top shelf” team that really knows how to deliver customer service!"

"As always, the AVS Group team [producer, photographer, and meeting assistant] exceeded my expectations—I enjoy working with them.  We try to include AVS Group in our corporate events every chance we get; having them at our conferences makes our [meeting planners’] jobs much more manageable. When AVS Group is involved, I don’t have to worry about the A/V, and other technical aspects, because I know they have those things under control.  I appreciate what they bring to our events and would recommend them to others.”
