Unlike most media rep firms, The Longshore Group nurtures relationships beyond representing ad agencies by way of developing strategic 'client direct relationships. This strategy made it possible for the AKC to launch a new publication ... and make it profitable after only three short years."
David E. Katz, Director of Advertising/Circulation, AKC Gazette
|"The Longshore Group think[s] like marketers-presenting your properties in a professional manner, selling them as not just magazines but strategic components of our plans. "|

" ... your guys have only workedfor us for a short time, but they really took hold at the recent IACP show in Miami. I've been a publisher's rep for some 32 years, and pretty well know how rep organization works. Your folks are really good, and we hope to work with you for many years in the future."
H. Scott Kingwill, Publisher, Law and Order
"With most magazine rep positions being an ever-revolving door, it has been great to have consistency on the AKC titles, and to work with a group who knows our business, the history of our account and the appropriate channels of communication."
Kendra Fortbrook, Project Manager/Advanswers Media/Programming
"Unlike most sales reps ... they (The Longshore Group) are more like marketing partners for the magazines that they represent and work very hard to tailor the needs of their publications to fit the marketing goals and needs of their potential advertisers. Consequently, when they present an idea to us, it is always well thought out, strategically sound and applicable to my clients."
Don Halleck, VP/Associate Director of Client Services, Leslie Advertising
"The Longshore Group was added to our staff to service existing East Coast accounts and to develop new business. The team ... exceeded our expectations. Over the years their territories have grown in both incremental business from current clients and by adding new clients to the roster routinely. Security Management enjoys excellent market share thanks to this quality."
Sandy L. Wade, Associate Publisher/Advertising, Security Management
