“Darren McDougal and the Next Level MarComm team have exceeded our expectations while creating a new website, managing marketing campaign and helping us establish a new brand with our firm. The implementation strategy that was executed by the Next Level Team showed immediate results with current and prospective clients. We have established more credibility within our specialty areas of recruiting and more importantly as an employer within our local market. Over the last 12 months, our branding and e-marketing campaigns has driven business to our firm with companies we have never worked with in the past. These organizations are contacting us to help them with their talent acquisition needs regularly, which has resulted in revenue that we would not have originally anticipated. 

Our recruiters are engaged and motivated to be associated with our firm like never before and we believe that this is directly attributed to working with Next Level’s MarComm team. We would highly recommend the Next Level team when looking at similar solutions to grow your firm. You will see positive results!”

Chris Fackler, President, Ringside Search Partners

“The Next Level Marketing Communication’s insight into marketing and SEO optimization has been revolutionary!  Being able to turn this segment of our business over to Darren McDougal has been instrumental in Specialty Executives success.  Specialty Executives was looking for solutions to better market our dominance in the Defense and Aerospace search. Let’s face it…if you’re not dominating the web based marketing scene your light years behind your competitors in executive search.

I could see what I wanted but was very limited in my experience with website design to convey this message to Darren.  His team was very patient and worked diligently through many test runs to deliver exactly what Specialty Executives was looking for. The new design encompassed Specialty Executives passion and resolve to “Save Soldiers Lives”.  Specialty Executives looks to Darren’s team monthly to keep us at the forefront of SEO.  Great to have another trusted partner at Next Level Marketing Communications!”

Travis Thomas, President, Specialty Executives

“Working with Darren McDougal and the Team at Next Level Marketing is like having a genius friend guide you through the marketing maze.  They deliver expertise, value and above and beyond expectations project-wide.  It is without hesitation that I recommend the great NLM Team – they would be a valuable asset to your staff for any project.”
