"We considered Mary and MKE to be a true extension of our team. During our time together, they liaised with everyone from our company’s leadership team to our main media contacts thoughtfully. I was confident they were making the right recommendations that would advance my company’s objectives. The rapport we built with MKE was unmatched; we really enjoyed working with each other, which is not to be underestimated."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Mary for years on multiple programs. Having worked with dozens of grilling and food brands and their PR teams over the last decade, I can say MKE easily stands out as the most effective at recruiting talent and managing brand campaigns. Mary knows how to arrange that perfect match between the company's message and the talent's strengths, personality, and skills."
"It has been a pleasure working with MKE. They produced excellent PR, social media, and cohesive communication/content marketing strategies for me. They created a best-in-class Blogger Program which garnered national attention, delivered 30%+ increase in web visitors, 11% improvement in time spent on CharBroil.com, and 32% growth of aided brand awareness. The MKE team is professional, competent, and effective."
"I've worked with dozens if not 100's of PR/marketing professionals over the years as a blogger and social influencer and Mary Eitel is the best of the bunch. She perfectly balances the needs of the brand with the influencer so that all boats rise and everyone has a smile when the project is done."
“We’ve worked with MKE a few times and they are always so responsive and helpful with all campaign needs. They facilitate all of the moving parts with great patience and efficiency -- we’d work with them again and again.”
“I've had the privilege and pleasure of being a client of Mary’s across multiple consumer brands in the lawn & garden marketplace over 15 years. Mary and her team are wicked-smart, tenacious, results-orientated, and breakthrough thinkers.”
