Whether the program is long-term or a single monthly promotion, Stockpiling Moms go above and beyond putting 110% into their work to help give a personal take on the promotion while meeting client objectives in raising awareness and engaging her audience. Melissa and Shelley are prompt, continually positive, and always looking for the best approach to engage their audience. I would gladly recommend working with Melissa and Shelley on any promotion.”

“I have had the privilege to work with Melissa and Shelley for almost two years now and can definitely attribute our partnership to a boost in Chick-fil-A Raving Fans!! Both ladies are very professional, organized and enthusiastic about finding creative ways to meet both of our needs. Having Stockpiling Moms as an advocate for our store, has helped increase brand awareness in a new market, as well as, customer loyalty. I found them extremely easy to work with and would absolutely recommend any business/organization that is looking to market itself, to do so with Stockpiling Moms!”
– Kimberly Taney, Marketing Director, Chick-fil-A at Houston Road
“Stockpiling Mom’s does a tremendous job of marketing the Florence Freedom to their audience. They make all of the posts as promised on their blog, facebook and twitter and their fan base has responded. We had people on our facebook saying that they heard about us from Stockpiling Mom’s and we have no doubt they have introduced new fans to our product. Their audience is very important to us as a family value and entertainment venue. The great thing about their fan base is that it is growing rapidly and the number of fans is not just a number: it is an active group looking for the best deals in town. When Stockpiling Mom’s puts out a deal, Greater Cincinnati Moms pay attention. The group has more than doubled in size since we started working with them and we expect that growth to continue as people see all of the great deals that they have to offer.”
– Matt Friedman- Florence Freedom Director of Broadcasting
