"NuCon contracted Cause and Effect to advise, demonstrate, and oversee the implementation of several e-marketing methods, ranging from e-blast, web layout, and social media. The project required a great deal of industry knowledge and the ability to convey complex information using concise and engaging copy. The team quickly understood the scope and application of the project and delivered great results in a short timeframe. They demonstrated a clear understanding of our clients and our brand, and how to effectively communicate our key messages in an e-marketing framework, as well as how to collect and use relevant data... I highly recommend Cause and Effect to anyone as a marketing partner. They will enthusiastically drive your market exposure and get results."
- Bill Gresham - Director Sales and Marketing, NuCon Corporation

"Trying to handle social media internally at Charlie V was quite a challenge because it demanded too much time, taking our focus off the job. But once we brought on Cause & Effect Marketing to the Charlie V team, a huge weight lifted off our shoulders. Their amazing knowledge and experience in social media is priceless. Finding motivated professionals who are responsive, ethical and well connected is no easy task, which is why we give Cause & Effect our highest recommendation!."
