Hometown Heroes: Martin Agency Puts Richmond, VA On the Advertising Map

Being a Richmonder, when I opened this month’s issue of Fast Company to see the extensive profile of the Martin Agency I couldn’t have been prouder. I’ve walked past their offices more times than I could count. They were the inspiration for me getting into marketing & advertising in the first place.

So when the company I’ve been profiling since I was almost a kid landed the $580 million Wal-Mart account, I felt like my hometown team just scored the winning touchdown.

Congrats to you, Martin Agency – and if you need some creative talent to help you with your new project, you know where to find me. 😉

  1. RE: AD WRITING FOR YOUR CO. I am seeking a position with an ad company and would like to know if you would hire me to write ads for you. I am a 65 year old male with several original and humorous ideas that I could make excellent ads for you. Will you please advise me if there is any possibility to work for your company? I have always wanted to do this, but never knew where to contact any company. I have alot of clever and original ideas! Thank you in advance. Sincerely yours, Peter Goddard. 7/13/07 sent

  2. It’s always great to hear Richmond VA companies making headlines – even if as a consumer I wish someone would kill the now-overdone Caveman campaigns, and tell my little nephew to please stop singing the FREECREDITREPORT.com song. Catchy yes, hit the target group – maybe?

    Anyway… Andrea, if you want to write about some new marketing technology, I’d be glad to connect you with the CEO of these great services anytime http://www.bubblecomment.comhttp://www.bubbleguru.comhttp://www.bubbletestimonial.com – and http://www.bubblejoy.com
