 LAC LA MARTRE: World’s Premiere Fishing Lodge

I own the greatest fishing lodge on the planet!  A 1,000 sq. mile lake located in the Northwest Territories 100 miles NORTH of Yellowknife, and we’re the only lodge on the entire lake! Try to get product up there in a hurry. Marketing Tools, Inc. found a way! We offer logo’d  shirts, hats, and knives to all our guests who catch 30 pound Pike and Lake Trout, and most of them do. The product must arrive via float plane, after being shipped to the US, then to Canada, then to a bus and finally to a float plane. It’s a real problem. These guys got an emergency order to us in 3 days!! I couldn’t believe it. I’ve used them for years, and I swear they just keep getting better.

Bench and Field Pet Foods

I’ve used Marketing Tools, Inc. for the past 15 years for all my premiums, giveaways and new product launches. I use them because I know I can trust them to do what they say, when they say. Often it seems my orders are last minute or need to be delivered to tradeshows at large hotels and convention centers. I can count on Marketing Tools, Inc. to follow up and track my product. It’s another area of stress I just no longer have to worry about! I also rely on their creativity when I launch new pet products. They are no longer just a vendor; they’re a trusted member of my marketing team. Thanks you guys!

Gun Lake Casino

I work in strategic procurement in a fast passed environment, a casino! We have to have high quality products, often with little lead time, and we demand special pricing. Marketing Tools Inc., always responds quickly, offers great ideas and delivers on time. We cannot afford to organize promotions and special offers and not have a marketing partner that we can’t rely on. That’s why we work with Marketing Tools, Inc. They deliver what they say!

Brett and the team at Marketing Tools have been great to work with. Everyone is extremely hard working, detail oriented and focused on quality execution.  They understand our business objectives and work quickly to provide solutions. When it comes to complex projects, they do an amazing job of keeping focus on the multiple moving parts, ensuring projects are completed on time and within budget.

Jenny Reed, Sr. Marketing Manager
Diebold, Incorporated 

I have been working with Brett Youker and Micaela Merryweather for about the last three years and they continue to surpass my expectations as a business partner. I say “partner” because I truly feel that type of relationship with the two of them and the Marketing Tools Inc. organization. Whether its filling a small order to send pens to a tradeshow last minute, or brainstorming ideas for the next years promotional items, they are very much involved in our business and care about our brand as much as we do. They are an absolute joy to work with and if we could benchmark any of our vendors on customer service and overall satisfaction, I would put them at the top of the list.

Professional Transitions, Inc. & ADS Florida

Professional Transitions, Inc. and ADS Florida are in the people business and it is very important to work with a company that understands what we do and the image we want to portray. Marketing Tools has provided us with a very good selection of products to choose from with excellent support advice and follow through. The products that we have chosen to give our clients or to use ourselves as marketing tools have always been exactly what we ordered. We have never been pressured to “buy-up,” but were given honest advice about the best product and quantity for the marketing effort that we were pursuing.

I highly recommend Marketing Tools for personal, hands on service, immediate attention to need and delivery of the expected product when it was expected. Thank you Marketing Tools.

Lambert, Edwards & Associates

I believe what separates MTI from other companies in the promotional item space is a unique capability to develop creative, integrated campaigns that meet real world business objectives. Sure, they’ll put my logo on a golf ball if I want, but say you are charged with customer retention for one of the region’s largest health care systems or new business development for a top accounting firm…a simple logoed golf ball may not do the trick. MTI is made up of veteran advertising and marcomm pros who have elevated the traditional “trinkets and trash” category into something truly unique. I’m glad I can count them as members of my team.
