Working with Bugle Media Services for the “Picturing Mary-Woman, Mother, Idea” exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC has been an absolute pleasure. Their expertise and recommendations helped me deliver outstanding results in targeting our specific audience. The average ANNUAL attendance for NMWA is around 55k visitors.  Thus far, Nov-mid March they have achieved over 45k visitors and the client believes they will top 55k by end of this exhibit on 4/12. Work is consistent, timely and detailed.  Bob Bugle has been a valuable partner for our recent campaign exceeding all pre-campaign metrics. His level of service we get goes above and beyond.

I have worked with Bob Bugle for more than three (3) years and highly recommend Bugle Media Services to any company seeking assistance in reaching out to the Catholic marketplace.

Bob consistently demonstrates a keen understanding of who our top prospects are, is very knowledgeable of the Catholic marketplace and always displays solid marketing judgment. Bob is very organized and always responds to requests or any issues that arise in a timely fashion.

Lastly, Bob Bugle has always displayed the highest integrity. I’ve never felt that Bob was at any time trying to steer us to decisions that would benefit him at our expense. He’s a very strong negotiator on our behalf, and I trust that he is always working with our best interests at heart and within the guidelines he’s been given. Bob is the consummate professional.

Working with Bob over the course of the marketing campaign for the film “Fireproof” was a real privilege. Bob is patient, trustworthy and very helpful when it comes to choices for ad placement which have budget and geographical needs. He took the time to suggest a variety of options for “Fireproof ” which considered all of our demographic concerns. We recommend Bob without reservation to assist with ad buying needs.

I have worked with Bob Bugle for over five years now and without his guidance, I would not have been successful in placing advertising business in the Catholic Newspaper Group.

Bob has full knowledge of the papers he represents and is able to answer any questions in a timely fashion. He responds quickly to all requests and is clear and precise with his answers. He carefully listens to each client’s specific demographic needs and directs you accordingly to accomplish targeting each client’s audience.

I value his ethics and integrity and I never have to doubt that he has my clients’ interests first and foremost in his recommendations and not his own self advancement. I would recommend working with Bob Bugle to everyone and I look forward to many more years of advertising together.

I had the pleasure of working with Bob Bugle for the Catholic portion of our marketing campaign for our film “Bella” which released nationally in October, 2007 and I would highly recommend Bugle Media Services to any company for Catholic market media placement.

As the release date for “Bella” neared, our expectations for the success of this film with the Catholic community were very high. Turn-around time in responding to requests was very short and follow-through was critical. Bob got us what we needed and within the time allotted.

Bob displayed sound marketing judgment and a very thorough knowledge of the Catholic marketplace in particular. Bob understood clearly who our audience was and how to reach them, and his efforts were integral to our success.

Based on my experience with “Bella”, Bob demonstrated a strong commitment to excellent service and integrity. I look forward to working with Bob on future projects.

Bob Bugle has made advertising stress-free for me. He suggests appropriate venues for ads and coordinates everything with each one. I can sit down with Bob at the beginning of my fiscal year and plan the entire year of advertising, then let him handle the rest. I thoroughly enjoy working with him.
