Shameless Self Promotion

Comments from current clients . . .

This is one of the easiest references I’ve been asked to write. Dianna Stampfler is an exceptional Publicist. I have been producing major public shows for 20 years and have worked with at least 10 publicists over the years. I have used Dianna’s services for the Grand Rapids Auto Show for 6 years and have added our Wine & Food Festival and Boat Show since then. She is the best for several reasons: diligence, resourcefulness, punctuality, eagerness, professionalism and her contacts are voluminous. She is also on the cutting edge of Social Networking, a category that is separating all publicists these days. You will never regret hiring Dianna.

Since coming on board with the Michigan Brewers Guild in 2008 as PR consultant, Promote Michigan has certainly exceeded our expectations. Dianna’s extensive knowledge and seemingly limitless contact list has really helped our organization communicate with the public which has, in turn, greatly helped us meet our objectives. In fact, we have been so pleased with our arrangement with Promote Michigan and with our continued working relationship that we have increased our financial commitment each of the past 3 years.

– Scott Graham, Executive Director – Michigan Brewers Guild

Our relationship with Dianna dates back several years to her time at WMTA. We were immediately impressed by her dedication and tireless efforts to promote our company. I am proud to say that my company was Dianna's first client. When she told me she was going into business for herself I did not hesitate to "hop on board." Dianna is a master of her craft who puts everything she's got into promoting her clients. Our work with Dianna has produced significant media attention resulting in thousands of dollars in revenue. We consider Promote Michigan to be a key part of our advertising plan. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.

We here at Grand Traverse Distillery have been very pleased with the work Dianna has done for us concerning the promotion of our distillery and spirits. Over the years we have wondered where best to spend our limited resources concerning our promotions. Promote Michigan is a resource we know we are getting our return on the investment. It’s the best value that we have for expanding our distillery and keeping our name in front and center.

– Kent Rabish, Owner - Grand Traverse Distillery - Traverse City

Dianna Stampfler (Promote Michigan) has been with us for three years now and I can't say enough about her. She has been available at any time we needed her, is responsive to all of our requests and is always timely. I think that Promote Michigan is the best PR firm in Michigan.

– Wayne Purchase, Executive Director - Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds- Michigan

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Dianna is a pleasure to work with - organized, creative and passionate about promoting and celebrating the best that Michigan has to offer.

– Mark Schrock, Owner - Salt of the Earth - rustic American eatery & bakery, Fennville

Comments from former clients . . .

I have found Dianna to be a great person to work with. Her energy, ideas and abilities are amazing. Having the chance to work with her to promote and grow my own business has been wonderful. I have her working in many different areas of promotion and she's always done a great job. In addition, her network of contacts is simply incredible. She has a very bright future in front of her and I'm sure bigger and bigger opportunities will continue to come her way.

– Tony Rubleski, President - Mind Capture Group

Comments from media . . .

Without a sliver of doubt I believe that no other individual professional or professional firm is as passionate about the state of Michigan as Dianna Stampfler. It is the driving force propelling her uncompromised dedication to promoting not only Michigan as a whole, but each player -- from solo entrepreneurs and start-up businesses to annual event organizers and multi-town associations.

Seasoned skills set aside, Dianna simply engages and promotes people with such genuine interest she literally has become a state icon: Everybody either knows her, knows of her or has heard from her. Her network of professional colleagues and friends is vast, well-grounded and well-earned.

Dianna has assisted me as an editorial right arm in every issue of Michigan BLUE Magazine since its inception five years ago. Her work is always punctual, enterprising and professional. I highly recommend Dianna to anyone seeking promotional assistance and guidance in Michigan – unless it disables her ability to keep representing BLUE Magazine. I don't want to lose her!

– Lisa M. Jensen, Editor, Michigan BLUE Magazine

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Dianna Stampfler is that rare PR person who feels to travel writers like a collaborator, not a marketer. I completely trust Dianna's ethics and candor, and her hands-on knowledge of Michigan hotels, restaurants and getaway spots of all kinds makes her a great go-to source for story tips of pretty much any kind. Not only that, she owns the all-time speed record for response time to inquiries. Without Dianna to collaborate with, my job would be so much harder - and much less fun.

– Kim Schneider, Booth Newspapers & Mlive.com travel writer (formerly with Traverse Magazine)

I've always been struck by what a terrific job you have done. It's great to hear that your efforts are going to be paying off in a much greater way. You have chosen a great path---and a great strategy!

– Terri DeBoer, Meteorologist - WOOD TV8

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Good luck on your new venture. I'm sure you will do great. I've always told the P.R. people on your board at WMTA how lucky they were to have you working for them. I'm sure you will do an amazing job on your own.

– Judy Loebl, Freelance Writer (formerly with The Oakland Press)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

As I pull my hair out in frustration over a press trip I'm currently trying to piece together, I am reminded once again of what a fantastic job you do and what a great service you provide to the media.

– Donna Marchetti - Editor, TheWineBuzz.com

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

You're one of the best PR people I've ever met."

– Kelcey Carlson, Former morning anchor, WWMT Channel
