What’s Happening Birmingham is a wonderful media partner for The StarDome Comedy Club. We have seen a nice increase in our business from e-mail marketing and Jarvis has been timely and professional in getting our message out to our fans in Alabama.

My Buzz12 biz partner, Phyllis Neill, and I started a blog,, to investigate ways to improve our local government. Jarvis Escott discovered it and volunteered to include it in his newsletter to help our community. I was amazed how the readership and awareness of our blog increased right after he published the newsletter.

I have been using the email blast system that Jarvis sends out to his What's Happening Birmingham list for about a year now. All I can say is a local list for a local business is KING! This is a "DONE FOR YOU SYSTEM." All you have to do is come up with good sales content for your email....and then just sit back and wait for the profits to start rolling in.I have made as much as $4000 off of one email blast. Then another $2000 on a second blast to get those to take action who were on the fence. I highly recommend any business that wants to activate NEW and maybe some old past clients or just go ahead and spend the little bit of money on these blasts...because the RETURN ON INVESTMENT can and will be BIG I assure you of that. I have my own email list....but adding another 10,000 or more contacts to the list I already have in seconds...brings me in double and triple the profits that I would not have made without Jarvis and his What's Happening Birmingham List! I have never made money so easy in my life! Thanks Jarvis!

“The services provided by Mr. Escott and First Impressions marketing are great! First Impressions Marketing produces a first class message and presents to a very well segmented, age and gender marketing base. During our most recent event the responses received after each broadcast where tremendous. We were able to determine when the emails and social broadcast because the calls would flood the phone lines. At times this was difficult to manage. The quality of the calls received were great!One of every five calls equaled a ticket or table sold! Excellent work!!

Jarvis has that God Given Gift that all business people need and want. He knows how to make the phone ring. It never fails. If Jarvis does an email blast for me and my company, my phone immediately begins ringing 100% of the time. I might not get an immediate sale, but I am definitely building brand recognition. His email blasts are constant reminders to past clients and future homeowners that Abra Barnes of Barnes & Associates is still in business and I am ready, willing and more than competent enough to handle all of their real estate needs. Jarvis is definitely a God-send.

I like to say thanks to First Impressions Marketing Group for promoting Jack Daniel's Arts, Beats, and Lyrics. A lot of people didn't understand what type of event this was. Jarvis, gave people a better visual of the event through downloading pics from other ABL events and the Birmingham event was one of the best. Thanks again!! People came out and supported a great event.”

First impression has a huge email base which has given my insurance agency a lot of exposure. The Leah Wiggins/Farmers brand has certainly been reinforced. I have even referred this company to other organizations seeking maximum exposure at a great price.Leah Wiggins, AgentFarmers Insurance“When it comes to professional service and getting a response from the community, no other company does it like First Impressions Marketing. Mr. Escott and his team are forward thinkers who have their client best interest at heart. So if you really want your company's name out there, put your trust and investment into First Impressions. They will never let you down.”
