With expert support in branding and marketing for both external and internal initiatives, the award winning Hummingbird Creative Group and Wendy Coulter have helped myself and Kymanox GROW REVENUES 3X IN 3 YEARS in a responsible, sustainable, and profitable manner - and have helped execute our corporate vision and WHY. Thanks for all the help and guidance Hummingbird and Wendy - we are all so grateful!

stephen perry
CEO at Kymanox

Working with Hummingbird is a time saver for me. Our marketing group is small and Hummingbird Creative Group provides us extra bandwidth to support various marketing initiatives and campaigns. Their graphic development and ability to provide alternative concepts, whether it’s an ad, office signage, or social or digital template, gives us different options to review and brainstorm, allowing us to develop multiple brand-aligned marketing pieces.

"We are a brand new business to the area and Hummingbird worked with out budget and made everything so easy for us. I would highly recommend Hummingbird to everyone. They did a great job creating a brand image for us!"

ADAM ZABLUD
OAK VILLAGE ACADEMY


"Wanted to shoot you a quick note to say how thankful we are for your team's hard work on our Marbles IMAX commercial. We just found out that 19% of YouTube viewers who see the ad watch the entire thing and don't opt to skip the last 15 seconds. That amounts to more than 5,000 views in only 3 weeks! To add to that, according to some statistics, on average only 3% of commercial videos are viewed in their entirety. This puts 19% into the "fantastic" category. These numbers are in a difficult to grab attention demo – geo-targeted mostly to 18-39 year old males. Thank you for your efforts."

It wasn’t until I worked with Hummingbird Creative Group that we really had a polished, professional-looking package. That really helped us launch the business forward, which included everything from attracting clientele to attracting employees. The fact that everything looked professional, it really helped me when I was recruiting.
Jake Howland, MBA
Founder | Head distiller at Aristotle Spirits



"For me, the greatest benefit of Hummingbird Creative Group is not having to do all of the marketing, social media, promotional campaigns, and website maintenance myself. This allows me to take the time and energy that I would have to spend off my plate and I know that it’s done right and I don’t have to worry about it. Over the last 4 years since Hummingbird Creative Group has been involved, I’ve definitely grown my business. They are effective in how they market and put campaigns together. "

DAVID JOHNSON

"Building a long term relationship with Hummingbird Creative Group has been one of the best decisions we've ever made. Operating our company without Hummingbird's creative ideas and brand management would be like trying to drive a care without tires...it can be done, but you're not going anywhere fast!"

PETE MEYER
PRESIDENT, MEDICAL BUSINESS ASSOCIATES

Hummingbird Creative Group is very professional. They are good at what they do and really knowledgeable about the whole marketing process. They have helped guide us as we’ve grown and what we need to do to get our name out there. We have definitely seen an increase in referrals, which for us translates to an increase in revenue. Hummingbird Creative Group is so versatile. They are not a one trick pony. They do all things in terms of marketing. They have been able to help us with a lot of different things in terms of the branding, digital marketing, and grassroots stuff, including a cookie campaign to providers, tv and radio advertisements, and direct mailings to households in certain zip codes.

"I put my total trust in Hummingbird Creative Group and they have never failed me. One of their greatest strengths is their people and team. They are creative, innovative, and sincere; that really means a lot.

As a 501(c)(3), we are really conscious about our budget. Hummingbird Creative Group works together with us to make sure we get the best bang for our buck. "

"I made the decision to go on retainer with Hummingbird after working with them on a few projects that turned out beautifully, on time and within budget. This was one of the best business decisions I ever made. After one year, our revenue has grown 70%, and our company was becoming well-known and well-respected. In another year, revenue grew another 60%, and today The Concrete Countertop Institute is synonymous with the highest level of knowledge and professionalism in our industry."

LANE MANGUM
THE CONCRETE COUNTERTOP INSTITUTE


"Hummingbird took the time to understand the value proposition we were making to our clients, and turned that into a professional-looking system commanding even-higher profits. Their vision is so important to us that we won't publish anything to our client base without their recommendations. Consider yourself very lucky if you can get an appointment with Hummingbird – they are the real deal."

Protus3 has been partnering with Hummingbird Creative Group since 2014. Having been in business since 1988, Protus3 was at a crossroads when we began working with Hummingbird. Wendy and her team listened first and courageously shared with us a vision that elevated our brand and supported our ability to connect with our clients, perspective clients and greater community. Hummingbird is a trusted partner of Protus3 and we are grateful for Wendy's vision and team.

Christine Peterson, CPP, ISP
President at Protus3



"Since 2009, Hummingbird Creative Group has done a great job of establishing a consistent and powerful brand for Scotia Village, a continuing care retirement community. We gave Hummingbird a tall order to take three very unique retirement communities and a corporate entity, and provide them with cohesive yet individual brands...the Hummingbird team did just that."

ALLEN JOHNSON
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS, SCOTIA VILLAGE

"Hummingbird and their employees have always provided our company with immediate responses and great attention to detail. I would highly recommend them for all your marketing needs!"

5 Stars isn't enough! The creative team at Hummingbird took our ideas and process for nutrition and weight loss, which we were delivering in a less than fancy word doc, and transformed it into a beautifully branded website with fantastic copy and a great message. The entire process with Wendy was easy from the initial meeting. What we love about Hummingbird is their ability to pull out what you do and pull it into a visual package which sells! Our site and collateral materials are fresh and beautiful! Worth every penny! Thank you!

"I got a job today as a direct result of the new website. This is a flagship website for photography, one with few equals in terms of its clean look, ease of navigation, and overall professional, high-end feel. Your work was extraordinary and shows how you put clients and quality first. Thank you!"

"If you want insight, ideas and actionable plans that make sense in this confusing online market you need to turn to Hummingbird. Trusted advisors and connections matter to me. I looked at Wendy and her team to help translate my message thoughtfully and to provide insight into where I want to go in business. I didn't just want a website, but a partner in improving my business."

I have worked with Hummingbird Creative Group in a variety of formats since the late 90s. At that time, I believe Wendy was the only person and she was just awesome; her insightfulness and personality are superb. Still today, it all comes back down to Wendy and her insightfulness. I know they have grown and have a broader team but Wendy is the element that really stands out; the creative spark and the DNA.

For me, Hummingbird Creative Group’s greatest benefit is providing that kind of deep insight and questioning to try and understand the problems, the needs and the objectives. They are very willing to try to find solutions to accomplish what needs to be done within budget with an ROI in mind at the end too.

"Website visits are up 25%! Hummingbird Creative Group did a great job creating our new logo and with our re-branding campaign!"

JOSH PAYNE

"I partnered with Wendy and Hummingbird Creative Group on the digital marketing for several clients, and I am consistently impressed with Wendy's attention to detail, strategic thinking and passion for what she does. She is a true champion for her clients – how many marketing agencies can say that they have worked with the same clients for 20+ years? In a world where marketing is frequently viewed as a commodity and agency partners are deemed interchangeable, the longevity of her client relationships is a testament to the incredible service that she provides."

I chose Hummingbird Creative Group for their strategic, creative work and their ability to pivot and be responsive to our needs through listening to what we wanted; not just what we asked for but also what they felt like we needed. I got big agency ideas within an agile group. Because of Hummingbird Creative Group, I have been able to increase my productivity, time, capabilities and capacity. As a one person marketing team internally, they are truly a partner for me and my team.

"For me, one of the greatest benefits of Hummingbird Creative Group is their flexibility. They really worked with us to come up with the right size approach of how to attack our needs without overdoing it. They took our outdated website and updated it to newer and fresher standards, as well as our new brand. They took the time to understand our business and our mission and created the message to more fully explain our story and what we do."

ADAM BARLOW

"Since engaging Hummingbird Creative Group, our social media following has been going up, our interaction with customers has been going up, and our social engagement with the end users has dramatically increased. Wendy is honest. She shares her honest opinion with me and I don’t feel like I am being sold. She gives me honest information and feedback, which I really appreciate. "

"It’s been full-circle from the day we met to where we are today. We went from not really having a brand or marketing support, to very robust assets including complete renaming, rebranding and recreation of our website. To me, the biggest benefit of Hummingbird Creative Group from day one is the quality of the professional staff and service that they produce in everything they've ever done. They are innovative, professional, and loyal."

Hummingbird Creative Group is a small business like mine and they have the flexibility to meet our needs. They allow owners like myself the opportunity to focus on my clients, and that translates into revenue when you can trust someone to take on a significant aspect of your business and handle it.

In addition, we are the volunteer force behind The Banks Foundation, a North Carolina nonprofit corporation that provides down payment assistance to first time homebuyers. We plan and execute the Triangle Golf Challenge annually and Hummingbird Creative Group has been a driving force behind the scenes for that event.
