A few kind words from our clients…

Wow!  The end product really hits the mark in meeting our stated objective to position CMA as one enterprise and a total solutions provider.  The website is professional, clean, and easy to navigate.  Internally, we have people really excited.  We appreciate all your hard work and patience in executing our vision!

Keith Lindsey - VP, Cable Manufacturing & Assembly, Inc. reviewed Sanctuarymg in

I have been extremely impressed by the team at Sanctuary Marketing Group. Their team has been exceptional – not something I can say of many service providers in my 20+ years of business. Sanctuary thoroughly researched our company and our market, including thorough research of our competitors, our industry vertical, and our complex sales model. The Sanctuary team demonstrated an ability to understand our needs and goals which was much deeper than some of their competitors we were speaking with – which is the key reason we decided to hire Sanctuary. They employed a wholistic approach from the very start of our discussions.

Once we engaged them, they developed a website design which impressed me in the way it contains a great deal of information yet has a surprising simplicity and “cleanness” of design. Behind the look and feel of the website Sanctuary created, which is very impressive as noted, Sanctuary focused from the get-go of developing a plan for a comprehensive approach to our desire to strengthen our Internet marketing approach, which had been spotty at best. They developed a very comprehensive Internet marketing plan, from SEO to social media, and integrated all of those efforts with the new website.

All this said, I have been quite surprised at how affordable Sanctuary has made all these efforts. We are actually spending about half of what we spent every year on paid Google ads alone, with far better results. The value proposition Sanctuary offers is fantastic: we spend less and do much more.

Finally, I have found the individual team members at Sanctuary great to work with – they are a model of good client service: always available, always responsive. It’s an approach we strive for every day in our own business, as we are a 100 percent client-focused service provider, and, as such, it’s a pleasure to be served ourselves by a firm with the same client-sensitivity we pride ourselves on.

Please pass along my email to everyone that worked on this project. Looking forward to working with you in 2012! Have a wonderful New Year!

Chris Auman and his team at Sanctuary Management have designed and maintained a beautiful website for me for over ten years. Their prompt response, their creativity and their professionalism are traits that I treasure. One of the smartest things I did in my writing career was asking Chris Auman to design my website. Numerous readers have written to compliment its clean, beautiful look. And any updates I’ve asked for have been done promptly and intelligently. I honestly couldn’t ask for a better company to work with.”

In addition, WordPress has allowed us to update content on our end, saving us a great deal of time and money.”

James A. Crouse - Vice President of Marketing - Portage Path Behavioral Health/Psych Staffing reviewed Sanctuarymg

“My thanks to Chris Auman, President of Sanctuary Marketing Group, for putting up with a techo-idiot like myself. He has, however, empowered me with many tools that will now help me to keep my site current. My dislike for “most things technical” was one of the reasons my old site had gotten so…well….OLD!!! Mr. Auman, however, deserves much of the credit for the site’s contemporary and user friendly design. He is as much an artist as anyone I have come across over the years.”

David Cangelosi - World-renowed opera singer reviewed Sanctuarymg

Not only that they are very creative with their ideas and great at coming up with concepts for your project. They were more than willing to work with me to get exactly what I was looking for. And they were open to any changes that I wanted on my project and more than happy to change it until I got what I was looking for. All of my associates have been very impressed with my final product and I will be working with Sanctuary Marketing Group much more in the future. They are a great resource for many things. You will be just as happy as I was if you go with them!”

“STOP RIGHT HERE! You have found your experts!!! I am an independent business owner with a long history of many Internet operations. Finding the right match for my needs has always been a challenging enterprise. Chris far exceeded my expectations in the quality of his work and in all communications.

Mike Needs, Online Manager Ohio.com/Beacon Journal reviewed Sanctuarymg

“I was a bit apprehensive at first going with a service provider who I didn’t know but I’m glad I did. Christopher went out of his way to make sure that my needs were met. His initial creatives were clever, on the mark and only required minimal changes. Turnaround was quick. SMG have earned their place on my list of preferred service providers. I expect a number of my prospective advertisers to point to my site and say “Bruce, I want my site done by the same guy who did those.”
