Collette Alves Combre Director of Engagement
Marketing, Fiber Expansion

The FSM Team is Absolutely Amazing to work with. The people are smart, incredible partners, and able to scale quickly to meet business needs. Their flexibility allowed Frontiers Fiber expansion to maneuver effectively in challenging terrain, adapt to regional nuances and strategically penetrate local markets in a meaningful manner. FSM consistently delivers an exceptional experience for consumers, with careful attention to detail and really knowing the brands and products they represent. They don't take lightly the opportunity given to represent a brand, and for that, I'm grateful. Trust me, you want them represent your brand and grow your business.

Jo Via Executive Director, Plano Balloon Festival, Inc.

Everyone on the FSM team is an experienced marketing professional with creative skills that enhance the activations they have produced at our event over the years. The team is always quick to make changes that are always needed at a large event like ours, their energy is high level, hours on end even in the crazy Texas heat and most importantly, First Step Marketing is a true partner in all aspects of brand partnerships and on-site activation. Thanks! Your Team does amazing work.

Kelly Boyer Marketing Manager, Frontier Communications

I had the pleasure of working directly with First Step Marketing for the last few years on planning and executing guerrilla marketing campaigns. They are best in the business at finding the greatest hot spots for customer interactions, engaging with those customers in a memorable fashion, and positively impacting the brand in the process.

Terri Willingham Executive
Director FFCDI

The Foundation for Community Driven Innovation has always enjoyed partnering with First Step Marketing, whose support of our youth STEM programs over the years has been immensely valued and deeply appreciated. FSM has been a regular sponsor at our annual ROBOTICON Youth STEM Showcase event where they've even been recognized for having one of the most engaging and interactive exhibits and they've been a joy to work with because they're so intentionally and meaningfully involved in all they do.
