Why Choose Bernard Marketing & Advertising?
We have one mission: To generate demand for your product or service. Sound over-simplified? Maybe, but maybe not. It is easy to find advertising that’s flashy but lacks strategy or conversely; a campaign that demonstrates solid strategy that is weakened by mediocre creativity and branding.
But a campaign that doesn't have everything will never generate the kind of demand your business needs and ...deserves. You deserve a firm that takes the time to learn about you, your industry and your customers.
Of course, we too are enamored by witty headlines and eye-catching design; in fact we strive for it. But ensuring that every component of a good campaign is represented is what you can expect from Bernard Marketing & Advertising, LLC.
Bernard Marketing & Advertising is a full service advertising agency providing full scale marketing and advertising services. Founded in 2003, we have consistently garnered successful outcomes for clients through award winning creative and aggressive marketing strategies.
We believe in research-based recommendations, close tracking wherever possible and exceptional creative work.
