“Engaging Reaching Media Decisions was truly a smart business decision”

“Like many small businesses, Wimmera Water Solutions advertise in a number of different channels, but we felt uncertainty about the effectiveness of our advertising, and it was often a last minute rush for copy in react mode.  We engaged RMD to help us co-ordinate and plan our advertising, hoping to streamline the process and bring more clarity to the results.

Rachel at RMD has been invaluable in achieving these goals.  We are now able to compare our advertising spend and effectiveness year-on-year, ensuring that our efforts are focused in a cost-effective manner.  Our advertising plan is now in place months in advance, enabling both our advertising partners and ourselves to be fully prepared with copy in a timely manner.

Rachel continually exceeds our expectations in the assistance that she provides, and we are more than happy for Rachel to manage our advertising relationships with both product suppliers and advertising providers.  She is both confident and competent to take ownership on any task we’ve thrown at her.  Engaging Reaching Media Decisions was truly a smart business decision – thank you Rachel!”

“Rachel has saved us time and money”

“In 2009, the CHS Group, which owns and operates three business units in the Horsham region, selected Rachel Deckert from RMD to manage the advertising activities of these businesses.

With hands on managers always too busy to bother with the fine detail of advertising, we believed we were getting very poor value from our advertising spend and in all honesty, we lacked the expertise to make sense of the unending opportunities to spend on advertising.

Rachel has reviewed our advertising history and has, in a matter of 12 months, completely re-organised our advertising campaigns across the three business units.  By dealing directly with the advertising mediums on our behalf, Rachel has saved us time and money, made our campaigns more effective, and has provided sound advice on where to place our advertising dollars.  We receive regular documented updates on the advertising budget and Rachel has become part of our marketing team, as we often draw on her creative skills to develop new campaigns.  It has been a cost effective move on our behalf, and we would thoroughly recommend the services of RMD to any business that is too busy or lacks the expertise to make effective media decisions.”

Tony Craig, CEO – CHS Group



“She is definitely worth the investment”

“Rachel Deckert from Reaching Media Decisions has been working for us since June 2009.  The initial services began with just co-ordination of marketing and advertising in our Horsham and Ararat Stores.  This then progressed to organisation of Policy 50 approvals, co-ordination of sponsorships and submission of all Local Area Marketing Fund subsidy claims.  Rachel has now successfully looked after the Horsham, Ararat, Hamilton and Warrnambool Stores and Business Centres in all of these areas.

Rachel has been very professional and friendly to work with, allowing us to work on other matters in our business.  She keeps us completely and regularly informed in all aspects of her dutes, and we believe that she is definitely worth the investment.  We highly recommend her services to anyone that needs assistance in these areas!”

“We have never looked back”

“Before we started using Rachel, we had no idea of what we were doing.  We were just booking adverts and radio time and not really making the most out of it, and not really closely monitoring our budget.  Rachel now plans our advertising campaigns for the year ahead, books the best spots on the radio, works out when and what to place in the paper, and works with the paper and radio to get the best possible price.  We gave her a budget which included her fee, and she monitors that and tells us if we need to cut back or if we can maybe afford to do a feature.

She will also do things like source the best price for signage and any promotional gear.  We also handball all of the people to her who just want sponsorships, and she narrows down what we can get for that money etc.  It is well worth listening to her presentation, and you are under no obligation whatsoever, but I know we have never looked back.”
