To whom it may concern,
Recently I referred a friend to Paul Davis from NextStep Marketing. My friend is in the early stages of building his own business. My friend came to me for advice on marketing. I mentioned that he should speak to an expert like Paul at NextStep Marketing.
After the first meeting and with an enthusiastic tone in his voice, my friend called me to thank me for the introduction to NextStep Marketing. Paul was able to be a sounding board to develop a strategic plan, act as a business coach, and provide guidance offered from years of experience. I will recommend Paul Davis from NextStep Marketing to any business that is looking improve the value of the company to the ownership, employees and the clients.

I met Paul the summer of 2012. He provided me with guidance on a marketing/business decisions that I had to make at that time. His advice was spot on! So, in late 2012, when I decided to open my public accounting firm Paul was the first person that I contacted for help. I had about a month and a half to get everything up and running. I needed a marketing plan, marketing strategy, website, etc. Well, I can say that Paul and his team have met and exceeded my expectations! My firm is up and running, on time, and as promised. I am 100% happy with the results and will be recommending Paul’s services to my clients. I could not have done this without him.
