Struggling To Figure Out Your Marketing Strategy?

The world of marketing and advertising is getting more complex every day.

How do you decide what path to take, what to add, what to ignore, and who to listen to? Staying on top of all the options and approaches so that you are spending your marketing budget wisely can be challenging. If you are a small or medium sized business, you probably don’t have a full time marketing staff to focus on this stuff so you are trying to navigate a marketing strategy while also running your company. Why not work with a team of experts who can come alongside as industry experts to help you sort through it all?

At the Blaze we will partner with you to help create an effective strategy for your company.

Whether you need an internet marketing consultant, or you want to revamp both your internet and traditional marketing approach, we are here to help.

We look forward to bringing our creativity alongside your expertise to help you create a strategy that will bring results to your bottom line.

In my years of working at Victor, there has always been a professional integrity about the work that I have done, the work that I have seen completed with the Victor team. I know that our work has met and most of the time, exceeded the expectations of the youth and families we serve. Professionalism is solely an attitude, I thought. Until today, I thought I knew the difference…however, when I took my first look at Victor’s new website, powered by Half a Blaze away, all of my preconceived notions flew out the window. Words can’t quite express my appreciation, my enthusiasm at seeing the growth that comes from an Identity restored… which is what the website has given to me, to Victor. I am incredibly thankful for the partnership with Half a Blaze away. Their work is quite…well, take a look at our website and you tell me.”April Harris

What’s impressive about Half a Blaze Out is that they took the time to get to know us as individuals, as a non-profit agency, and as a commercial enterprise. They worked with us as a “Team” to ensure our values and principles were reflected in Arc’s marketing efforts.

I have so appreciated working with you. You and Michael and your staff have a wonderful gift in reflecting what we as customers were looking for. You have done a fabulous job on the radio spots and design for not only the brochure but also the pamphlet. All have been beautifully done and great quality- just like you all. With much appreciation and admiration.”Michele Hinkle, Staff Development Officer

Your work is exceptional! Thank you for your positive spirit, passion, dedication and expertise. You captured the beauty and need for the Northern California Natural History Museum project on our fundraising video! I am extremely grateful.”Judy Sitton, Board Chairman
Gateway Science Museum (formerly Northern California Natural History Museum)

The video was truly remarkable. It succeeded in producing tears, laughter and a standing ovation. We had many of our teens and leaders in training in attendance. They were all lined up standing in the back of the room so they could watch the video. When the video was over, our emcee recognized them and the audience stood and applauded. It was a defining moment for the club and achieved our goal of both impacting our guests and showing how the club impacts our kids.We appreciate what you did for the club so much – thank you!”Paige Gilbert, Development Associate
Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley

Wherever they work, they leave that organization stronger, healthier, happier and more successful from deep within the core of that organization, AND with a glossy new finish! Their comprehensive approach created the professional look that reflected our core values, from the letterhead, to the envelopes and website, and the interactive marketing CD-Rom. Half a Blaze Out is an organization that defines and creates excellence in all they do. I would strongly recommend them.”Bev Landers, Principal

Thanks soooo much for your much needed marketing perspective and professional expertise. Our current marketing products have “big company” professional quality, with a “little company” local caring theme. I think it is right on! Personally I do not see any other local company with such a professional marketing presence like the new program you created for us.”Vito Mule, Chief Financial Officer
The Hignell Companies
