I would never consider working with Next Media Group, ever. Just finished a meeting at their yearly Marketing "Workshop" (I would NOT call it a workshop!), which was horrible. The speaker was redundant, repetitive and lacked emotion. The topics that he discussed were basic marketing concepts that anyone can learn by researching online in 2 minutes and he also gave INCORRECT information. He focused on Radio Advertising, which is a DYING form of advertising! If he is promoting advertising and marketing, maybe he should focus on the real stuff that matters and not try to sell a product for Next Media (A horrible product at that!) !! Traditional advertising is dying, it will be non existent in years to come!
Also, every person was assigned a representative from Next Media, what a joke!! The people I spoke were uneducated on Marketing and Advertising, but they work for a company that sells advertising! My representative from NextMedia was taking notes and at the end of the meeting, repeated what the speaker said! She just learned that information 2 minutes prior to saying it, yet she was trying to reinforce it to me After speaking to her, I told her I could invest in other, more profitable forms of advertising/marketing and she just couldn't get it through her *** head. What a horrible, uneducated Saleswoman she was!! The entire group was like that. This company is filled with a bunch of uneducated people. The ***, trying to teach the ***. GREAT. "Hey, we have no clue how to promote your business, and neither do we! But hey, let us try to sell you this advertising package for $2300 a month." HOW ABOUT YOU HIRE SOMEONE FOR $30,000 A YEAR TO MANAGE YOUR MARKETING!! IT WOULD BE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE THAN GIVING IT TO THEM. What a JOKE of a company and better yet, what a JOKE of a presentation!!
What they failed to mention is that WORD OF MOUTH is the #1 leading form of advertising out there. By giving *** presentation and false information, you bet I will spread the word of mouth on this company!! DO NOT ADVERTISE ON THE RADIO WITH THEM! DO NOT USE OUTSIDE ADVERTISING WITH THEM! DO NOT USE THEM AS A COMPANY. Use other up to date forms of advertising like TELEVISION or ONLINE MARKETING! If you use radio, your competitors are probably already ahead of you ! And the industry too! *** company, trying to teach other *** companies. WHAT A JOKE! So, horrible!
