"I’ve worked with AMPERAGE on two different sites for two wildly different markets, and there’s a reason I keep coming back. Beyond solid web development work, they’re simply easy and enjoyable to work with. They take on the hard parts, and that empowers me to do the rest of my job better."
“AMPERAGE produced an outstanding video for us, on-time, on-budget and so on-point that our video was not only heavily viewed, it was heavily shared.”
“Working with AMPERAGE on our capital campaign was a collaborative, team process. We believe that AMPERAGE was able to increase our successful campaign with their shared expertise and past experience through the planning, implementation and completion of our project.”
“AMPERAGE eased the project along with their professional counsel and expertise. A capital campaign takes 100 percent dedicated time and effort and AMPERAGE helped us direct a campaign that was strong and effective. They gave us amazing results that will benefit our community for many years to come.”
“GreenState has been partnering with AMPERAGE for over five years. They help implement our statewide online and offline media campaigns. As trends change and opportunities present themselves, AMPERAGE serves as a valued strategic partner in recognizing and assessing new variables, in turn, providing guidance to optimize our investment.”
I would recommend AMPERAGE for any marketing project, large or small. AMPERAGE has certainly helped us move the needle and I truly believe they will do the same for your organization.
“We’ve seen steady month-to-month growth in key in-store metrics. It is evident that the combination of our online and offline campaign are working together to Move the Needle.”
“Our organization was going through a leadership transition and determined that we needed to refocus and rebrand. AMPERAGE partnered with us and helped us assess our status and capabilities to move forward. Our new name and message has been positively received and welcomed both within our organization and throughout the community. We could not have executed this organizational change alone.”
“We have worked with AMPERAGE for many years on major service-line initiatives that include research, marketing plan development, creative execution and media placement. From planning to implementation, AMPERAGE collaborates seamlessly with both our internal marketing team and Memorial Healthcare System’s strategic partners. The AMPERAGE team has a unique understanding of our market, our brand and our goals.”
