“Greg has contributed to ABBLighting by utilizing his knowledge and experience in media relations and editorial services to help us expand our customer base and reach farther than we thought possible at this early stage. I’ve been involved with the lighting industry for 30 years and Greg has lined up more in quality and quantity this past year than in my first 29 years combined. All of that has turned into unprecedented exposure that would have otherwise cost tens of thousands of dollars. Thanks to Greg, ABBLighting has recently been featured in a multitude of online and print-based articles. Along with lining up a plethora of media interviews at this year’s industry trade show (Lightfair), he has helped ABBLighting Marketing implement a mass-mail database and debut a newsletter to help us keep in contact with our customers. His help and research have been essential to our development and he has always generated great content for us.”
