Melanee Woodard, Vice President, Marketing, Industrial Bank
Industrial Bank hired MVP for their online reputation and communications.
"Industrial Bank is a 7-location bank which was established in 1934. We contracted with MVP to assist us with our online listings, which had become inconsistent over time. They worked with us to verify the information we wanted to be conveyed, and then they updated our online contact information with over 550 listings. Additionally, they continue to update our listings with promotional messaging and/or COVID information for us as needed, which pushes out to all 550+ listings.
In addition to improving our online listings, MVP has been our Online Reputation Management partner. They consistently monitor our Google and Yelp reviews and respond to our customers who have left reviews. This monitoring allows us to monitor our reviews and memorialize this online reputation monitoring for our audits. With all that there is to do with managing our 7 locations, MVP is a welcome asset to our marketing strategy, and we are pleased to be their customer."
Ricki Fairley, Founder of TOUCH Black Breast Cancer Alliance
TOUCH BBCA chose MVP to do their one-hour documentary on metastatic breast cancer and continues to be a customer for all of their marketing merchandise.
"MVP Ad Agency is a phenomenal marketing partner. Christina, the president, is a charm to work with as she embodies our #GSD (Get Shit Done) Motto. She is expedient, creative, and an awesome problem solver. "No" is never the answer; it's always "how." Emily, her adult daughter, has a keen eye and amazing shooting and editing skills; they delivered an amazing one-hour documentary shot over three days. MVP truly captured the most important moments and quickly delivered genuine snapshots of the reality they represented. They are always there to deliver on our often-crazy timelines with excellence and grace. This mother/daughter team is a joy to work with!
During our documentary shoot, Christina let us know about some of the other services MVP has to offer, and well, you could say we were ecstatic to find one company where we could get all of our marketing needs accomplished. MVP is a logo expert and assisted me with rebranding and new logos for some new extensions for TOUCH. We got new logos and a collage of all of our brands, which they designed and created material for beautiful beach bags, t-shirts, scarves, step and repeats, purses, table cloths, and adult and women's A-line dresses; with POCKETS! For our main brand, TOUCH BBCA, we got a much better price from MVP for our hoodies, embroidered bucket hats, tank tops, long-sleeved T-shirts, coffee mugs, and water bottles than our former vendor.
We love working with MVP and expect to be a long-time customer!"
Dr. Solanges Vivens, Author of Girls Can Move Mountains: Rewriting the Rules of Female Entrepreneurship
MVP was recommended to Dr. Vivens by a mutual friend of MVP. We successfully delivered a multitude of tactics to promote Dr. Viven's new book.
My second book, Girls Can Move Mountains; Rewriting the Rules of Female Entrepreneurship, came out as we went into COVID. MVP was with me every step to make sure that despite the pandemic, I was able to market my book. They flawlessly executed a large marketing scope of work, and I am more than happy to make a recommendation for anyone to use them. If you are a busy professional or business and do not have the time for your marketing needs, you've come to the right place without question. The following is the scope of work I hired them to do:
Logo Design and Branding
Pull up Banners for Book Signings
Bookmarks for Book Signings
Assistance with Book Signings (before the lockdown)
Assistance in Promoting the book to the movie industry in Cannes, France, and California movie producers
Assistance with establishing a 501C3. The Voice of Girls Can Move Mountains, to help even more women
Social Media Posting, Replying, and Monitoring
Jill Gaitens, Executive Director, LEARN DC Public Charter School
LEARN DC hired MVP to execute multiple marketing initiatives as they were challenged with opening a new school during a pandemic.
Opening a new charter school, LEARN D.C., on a military base during a pandemic was incredibly challenging. MVP provided the marketing support we needed! They increased our parent communication through a weekly parent newsletter which was beautifully designed and had sections highlighting staff, students, important dates, and information.
In addition, MVP created customized and branded social media posts and a social media calendar to ensure we covered all needed communications effectively. They monitored our social media daily, which allowed us to address concerns quickly; before MVP, we often missed the timely opportunities to respond to social media posts on our page and our parent page. Having this extra set of eyes was a lifesaver on more than one occasion.
In addition, MVP provided marketing materials for our school, which included custom-designed banners, business cards, and even a huge purple customized ribbon for our opening ceremony. Our staff and families also love the branded t-shirts they designed for us, they are top quality, and the kids enjoy them on their dress-down days.
We also needed professional-level photography, and MVP did a phenomenal job. MVP was there with us at every step, ensuring a successful opening year. MVP even assisted with PowerPoint presentations for our governing board and started an Instagram account for the school.
I highly recommend MVP and hope to work with them again in the future. They took a load off of my plate, allowing me to focus on getting this new charter school up and running. Without hesitation, I recommend MVP for ALL your marketing needs.
Wil Naron, Director & Tony Smith, Sales Director, Mad Science of Washington
This STEM Camp program needed T-shirts in a crunch and turned to MVP to get the job done.
"MVP was referred to us by another vendor. We needed to get T-shirts made for our staff and campers, and we needed them fast. We were thrilled that we could get a turn-around time in less than a week from our first call, and we started camp with our great-looking shirts!
Christina was great to work with and assured us that we would have our shirts before the camp opened. When the shirts arrived, we opened them up immediately and were so pleased with their quality (and price!) that we called her up and ordered more!
We recommend MVP; we are also looking at possible video work with them down the road and know that they are super to work with and get the job done!"
Jennifer Badeau, Owner of Nuvo Body Spa
"I have recently started my own business to provide IV Infusions to Floridians. When I first met with MVP, Christina pointed out that my logo may not be intuitive and hard to read by prospective customers. While this wasn't great news, I appreciated her honesty, and she came up with a solution. MVP worked with us to create the perfect logo for Nuvo Body Spa.
In addition, MVP created our website with animation and a beautiful design that we love. I had no idea how much went into building a website at first. Christina was patient and worked with us to create and gather content, images, and video for our new website, which we are very proud of today.
It is great to work with MVP; they listen and deliver your vision to you. It is also nice to know they are honest and will point out possible improvements gently and constructively. We continue to work on them and have them on-call for our monthly website maintenance. We highly recommend MVP to you."
Jacqueline Bowens, Chief Executive Officer, DC Primary Care Association
DCPCA hired MVP for event planning, website, and social media.
"We were down a staff member and in need of an event planner. Having worked with MVP before, I knew we could count on them to provide us with exactly what we needed in a very short deadline. MVP came in and seamlessly worked with my staff to coordinate, negotiate and execute a large conference. They saved us thousands of dollars with their shrewd negotiating skills and got us much more than we expected in our contracts with various venues.
Additionally, they put together our integrated marketing strategy and assisted us with executing it for our event. They were able to jump into our website and design a promotional page for our event and link it over to our Constant Contact database for registration. They set up our Constant Contact page and were always available whenever we had a question. Their timeliness and professionalism were, without question, remarkable. Without hesitation, I recommend MVP for various marketing and event needs. I have personally known their president for over fifteen years."
James Scott, CPA, Senior Managing Principal and Co-Founder for Penan & Scott, P.C.
Penan & Scott, P.C. hired MVP for photography, new website, new logo/branding, stationery, envelopes, and invoices with new branding.
"Thanks for being such a great asset to Penan & Scott, P.C. From your professionalism to your multi-talented staff, you have assisted us in numerous ways. First, we love the new logo, stationery, invoices, and envelopes you designed for us. You noted that it was our 25th year in practice and developed a terrific sticker that we use to communicate with our clients.
We also are thrilled to have had our website redesigned by your talented staff. Your photographer captured some powerful images of our office and our staff. We are using these pictures for our new website and our marketing needs for other projects. It is without hesitation that I recommend your company."
Jennifer Ross, Founder & Executive Director, National Collegiate Preparatory Public Charter High School (National Prep)
National Prep hired MVP for multiple marketing, video production, and public relations needs.
"MVP was vital in our marketing, social media, video production, and public relations initiatives for five years prior to our school closing. We were a small public charter high school in Ward 8 and had limited resources due to the many needs of our students. MVP exceeded our expectations and consistently delivered high-quality work that fit our modest budget year after year. Their customer service is personal and exceptional to their clients.
It is refreshing to have a company you can work with that you know will get it done. We often have many priorities, and MVP gets the things done that you do not have the time to do. Their services are expansive, and they have done everything from rebranding us, video production, redesigning our website, writing, designing, and producing our quarterly newsletter and marketing materials to press releases, getting us media hits, and increasing our social media presence. MVP is a company that will make you a priority; it is well worth the investment."
