Steve and his team have given us strong measurable success in lead generation, and highly successful branding with our MOM APPROVED campaigns and catchy Jingle. Our SEM, Live chat leads and ad clicks are off the chart successful. We continue to grow month after month and are buying new trucks! If you are lucky enough to get a meeting with Steve, take it!

Pegasus Pest Control
SGM Advertising's campaigns for our pest control service really make the phone ring. We've grown market share every year for five years running. Steve made a catchy Jingle and a radio ad campaign for us, and we hired them as our Ad Agency to negotiate our radio advertising which saved me money and lots of headaches! This past year we added digital marketing with SEM, SEO, and Live Chat, and our online lead generation for the season has been anywhere from 150-220 percent above last year every month! Their expertise in pest control marketing and lead gen is far beyond any other advertising group we have ever used. If you want results, call SGM!

“Steve and his team are the marketing “wizards” we were looking for!

We renew with Steve year after year!"
It's been a great experience working with Steve and his team. We are geographically removed from a major city and all radio spots in our market sound the same. Not so for us!Thanks to Steve we get comments on a regular basis about the great radio commercials we have. The jingle they created is so original, and they delivered creative ways to both brand us as a company and keep our radio commercials unique. From just a few keywords or an event name, Steve takes over and produces both a script and spot to perfection. We will be using his services for many years.

Dr. Monica Crooks
I am amazed and thrilled by the results my business is receiving under the guidance and direction of Steve Garland and SGM Advertising! And just as Steve said, it takes a bit of time to ramp up, but once it does, the calls just keep on coming!... Steve composed a catchy uplifting jingle to cement my tag line, it's outstanding and it's working! His passion for what he does is tireless, and by working closely with my web optimizer, he is layering my branding in the market for thorough saturation. Trust and confidence are critically important in my profession. I’m a dentist. So personal referrals are the most valuable leads for my business, and I can honestly refer Steve's company as the best marketing and results we've ever had!
T Webber Plumbing Heating and Air
Steve is an amazing creative talent and has a knack for developing memorable ads that break through a crowded radio space. We’ve been using him for our Radio and Digital Marketing for a few years and have always been thrilled with both the product and the results. Whenever I work a home show, or speak with a client on the phone they are always referring back to our marketing, and they remember the slogans and Jingle which always amazes me. Doing business with Steve is easy, as he is a great communicator, very responsive, and always bursting with ideas. I would recommend Steve and his team without reservation!

Steve and his team have done a fantastic job with radio campaigns, Google SEM campaigns, and building new landing pages to drive more traffic and qualified patient leads to us. As a result our new patient list has increased nearly 100% since we began our campaign. I highly recommend Steve and his team for any broadcast or digital marketing, they understand the medical field and will do great things for you!"

Gold River Flooring
Steve is creative and talented when it comes to providing us unique advertising strategies - he's always thinking out of the box and providing us the best service when it comes to this ever changing world of advertising. He's great to have on your team for professionalism, quality, responsiveness, and value.
Working with Steve and his team at SGM Advertising has been one of our best business decisions we have made. We felt that we had a decent presence within our community visually with our trucks but needed to tell the consumer who we were and what we were all about. Our jingle we use has people actually singing it to our techs when they meet and with Steve’s savvy business experience, we have a fantastic saturation on the airwaves that our competitors can’t match. Thank you Magic Man!
