Some of Jim's references have commented on his work:


Jim has served as my business, marketing, computer, presentation, and Internet manager for over 10 years. We began working together on new web pages directed at patients and marketing letters for referring doctors, which soon evolved into presentation management and countless other projects. I depend on his PowerPoint expertise in my medical setting, where he polishes my presentations technically and grammatically and resolves the daunting videos technicalities. He has often come over at a moment’s notice when my computer eats a presentation at the last minute. He handles my odd and demanding deadlines with polish and finesse.

Many of my project expenses would either get out of control or not be successful without Jim’s knowledge and skills. He has performed several research evaluations on the practice to ascertain how to best allocate marketing expenses to achieve the maximum impact, while lending a hand to keep his efforts within budget whenever cash flow is tight. One series of changes implemented over a 6-month period increased new patients by 65% and revenue by 37%.

I love how he develops marketing strategies with a Christian background to meet the philosophy of the practice owner – me. He is very professional in his application of any knowledge or skills. I appreciate the effort he puts forth to make everything our practice does the best it can be. He is gifted at knowing when he needs outside knowledge or expertise and requests it up front; so that we are never slowed down. I would highly recommend him to any business that needs help with technical, marketing, or business related endeavors.

“This is a strong positive recommendation for Jim Martin who I have known for ten years. In the last year and a half we have worked closely together on a project called Asbury Community Network. Jim has demonstrated his excellent creativity and problem solving skills multiple times on this project. Many times he has developed and presented programs in a positive manner. He frequently brings his business experience, adaptibility and computer skills to bear on the task at hand. In short when Jim accepts an assignment I know it will be completed in a creative, professional and timely manner. He would be an excellent asset to any organization.”

I was the manager of IBM Marketing Intelligence and later manager of Lenovo Marketing Intelligence when Jim Martin worked for me. I wholeheartedly recommend Jim for any position in Market Intelligence or Market Analysis.

While Jim worked for me he always did an excellent job analyzing competitor products, strategies and providing the right recommendations to the product teams. When I needed someone to do challenging tasks, I could depend on Jim to find the key information to help executives make the best decision. Jim has great business, technical and marketing skills.

I've since retired, but I still depend on Jim for advice for the family business. His broad background and experience have been great for our company. His insight and vision would be a great benefit to any business.

I believe given the chance, Jim would provide the best advice to help increase any company’s long-term sales and profit growth. His passion for finding the data that moves the needle forward can’t be matched. To Jim it wouldn't be a job, it would be a mission. That’s the way it was with Jim when he worked for me and that’s the way it is today as he gives me counsel and advice for the family business."

“Jim was very effective in not only meeting my expectations but exceeding them. He could analyze large amounts of complex data and formulate clear and concise conclusions and recommendations. His presentations to senior division management were well-thought out and insightful.
 
He would go beyond the basic requirements of an assignment to view opportunities for how the division could improve its competitive position, lower its costs of operation or achieve higher customer satisfaction. He was a very positive asset and was able to express himself in a clear, concise manner. This business relationship existed for several years.
