Don’t just take our word for it – read on to see what some of our clients have to say about working with the whyMarlin Team.
"whyMarlin is the best third-party vendor I've ever worked with, not just at the Y but throughout my career. They make every deadline, even when things get delayed on our end. They've saved us from costly mistakes multiple times, and are always a complete delight to work with."
Marketing Content Manager, YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago
"Our old site was outdated with pictures and information and whyMarlin was the perfect match for us. The team took the old site and revamped it with new content, better visibility, relevant pictures, and immediately drew in new leads. The work that whyMarlin did was exceptional and was completed in a timely manner. I recommend working with them for any of your marketing needs in the future as they are professional and always respond within a timely manner. They also aided us with our direct mail and camp brochures for our camps as well at strategizing about digital advertising."
Executive Camp Director, Arizona YMCA Camps
"I can’t say enough great things about Ymarlin and how they helped our YMCA location develop a specific audience to target for our digital marketing needs. They created outstanding program guides for our location that were well sought after. "
Director of Marketing, YMCA of Greater Indianapolis
"We are currently being provided the website, print, and marketing services from whyMarlin and have had tremendous results from it. Over the last few months of using this service we have seen an increase of visitors to our site and many of those visitors turned into new customers. With the help of whyMarlin the design of our website has transformed into a friendly and effective way to attract new customers. Working with them was very easy and always professional. "
Vice President of Marketing, Valley of the Sun YMCA
"The team at whyMarlin has provided our association with tremendous marketing support for over 10 years. They have aided our marketing department’s efforts through new and innovative platforms to help not only grow our membership to over 42,000 individuals, but also engage these members effectively and efficiently while working within our budget. To top it all off they are a really fun group to work with!"
CEO President, YMCA of Greater Williamson County
"I have been with whyMarlin for years and I have always been happy with their work and support. Great service makes your customers feel that you care about developing a long-term relationship that means more than just making a sale. I would and will, recommend whyMarlin to anyone who needs an outstanding marketing and website company!"
Vice President of Marketing, YMCA of Greater Williamson County
"We partner with whyMarlin because their targeted data solutions ensure that our marketing efforts are cost-effective and reach the right audiences. We rely on their expertise and always trust in their ability to deliver on time with a competitive price."
Vice President of Mission Advancement, YMCA of Austin
"I have worked with the team at whyMarlin for almost a decade – spanning nearly eight years with the YMCA of Greater Williamson County and now two years at my current position with a technology group in Austin, Texas – and have collaborated with them on everything from websites and social media to online shopping carts, digital media advertising, online registration, program guides, direct mail and more. Through my experience, I can wholeheartedly say that each member of their staff goes above and beyond to make your project a success both at the outset and over the long haul. They realize that their success is only measured by their client’s success and they embody that sentiment. When I arrived at my new position after working at the Y and was charged with rebranding a technology group that includes six different companies as well as a nonprofit, I was confident that whyMarlin could help me implement my marketing plan in a way that was not only effective and efficient, but economical at the same time. The fact that they are also always ready to offer solutions and to tackle new challenges, while providing the utmost level of customer service, is a huge asset in our ever-changing communications landscape."
Former IT Director, YMCA of Greater Williamson County
"It’s been a lifesaver having a marketing agency that actually understands what Y's are all about. But better yet, they have multiplied the power of our small in-house team by empowering and working with us every step of the way. whyMarlin has played a large part in helping our Y grow with targeted and effective marketing decisions within budget."
