J.L. Farmakis, Inc believes in working locally with the advertiser and has offices in Connecticut, Minnesota, Missouri and Iowa and a partnership with Roy McDonald and Associates to provide coverage with eight offices, providing some of the best coverage in the country. Our experience and locations allow the sales force to work beyond the media buyer and call on all aspects of the advertising decision process. This includes the advertiser ( product and communications manager/director ) and the agency ( media buyers, media planners, account executive and supervisors ). We pride ourselves in selling advertising space and time, and working with each of our clients on a consulting basis. With our experience, we believe we can bring some unique and profitable ideas to your operations. Before we work with any new client, we meet with them for a full day to understand their business plans and sales goals. We develop a marketing plan based on these goals and demonstrate a marketing plan that meets these goals. This marketing plan includes evaluation of the market, development of sales material, face to face selling, sales letters, and telephone calls. J.L. Farmakis, Inc specializes in agricultural and mortgage banking marketing and has served many of its clients since 1972. This includes many clients in print and broadcast. J.L. Farmakis, Inc has also been one of the leading rep firms working on the Internet. We are presently working with over 14 clients selling banners, buttons, targeted banners, targeted e-mails, storefronts and editorial sponsorship on the web. We have been working in this area for over 8 years.
