What Our Customers Are Saying

Stacey Paynter

CEO, Strategic Connections, LLC

"As a consultant for strategic business and marketing planning, I have engaged Bernard and his team for a number of my clients. Bernard brings strategic insights, an ability to connect technology to business and marketing goals and an understanding of new and existing digital platforms for development of each project.

Unlike many technology partners I have worked with, Bernard can explain sophisticated options to the C-suite as well as mid tier managers who are not digital experts in order to obtain important feedback and buy-in. He thinks beyond the assignment to consider implications of other (often existing) digital and non-digital "touchpoints" that might influence success.

I find his digital audits (which assess status and opportunity across the entire digital ecosystem) especially unique and valuable. Bernard also demonstrates a passion as well as personal care for everything he does."

Entrepreneur, Turn-Around Specialist and Healthcare Marketing Strategist, Kumar Shahani

"Bernard came thoroughly prepared for our very first meeting. He had done an excellent job of analyzing our online presence, the challenges and opportunities. He asked the right questions and was able to get at the root of the issue within the very first meeting. It did not take him long to recommend a preliminary strategy and approach, which eventually turned out to be the correct one moving forward. Soon he was able to identify the key targets and develop a plan that was on point , affordable and quantifiable.

As compared to his competition, he was able to deliver tangible results. Most importantly he was delightful to work with and was always available to everyone in the organization and his response time was commendable. I would recommend working with Bernard in a heartbeat."

“Bernard and the team at Think Strategy is equal parts inspiration, information and implementation. Bernard is one of the best I know at what he does -- his recommendations will attract more leads, customers, and clients to your business.”

Raquel Gonzales

Marketing Manager, Chandler/Gilbert Community College

“Bernard and the Think Strategy team were a digital "support group" to me in my Bay Area role. As a micro marketing team, we relied on expertise and hands-on support from Bernard's team of experts in SEM, SEO, and Web Development. Not only was he and his team willing to dive into the trenches meet deadlines. But he regularly met with me to discuss strategy and uncover opportunities for improvement. His leadership skills, customer relationship management, and communication skills are rare quality in an industry of smoke and mirrors.”

Robert Kim

Co-Founder, Principal, Campfire Analytics

“I worked with Bernard at Microsoft in the past and have the fortunate experience to partner with him yet again with our own companies. Bernard has significantly expanded his expertise from SEM to SEO, lead generation, marketing strategy, and beyond. Today, we are strategic partners on opportunities where Bernard and Think Strategy drive marketing automation, lead generation (CRM, SEO, SEM), and we help close the loop with analytics, BI, testing/personalization, attribution, and more. Not only do our skills complement each other, Bernard and his company's approach aligns well with us - focus on delivering results and true win-win scenarios with our clients.”

Mark Addison M.B.A.

Chairman & President, Rocket Science

“Bernard is already a master at growth strategies and marketing automation, but the best part is that he is always inquisitive and learning more. Going to conferences, organizing 'master' sessions, acquiring new tools. Bernard is totally on top of his game! I highly recommend him.”

“Bernard is one of the best in the industry. I have known and worked with him for many years, and he continues to blow me away with his depth of knowledge. He knows the exact steps to take to assess a business and apply the most effective strategies and tactics to make it successful. He is the consummate professional and is sure to keep himself on the forefront of what's working in the industry. Bernard has the strength of character to match his strong skill set, making him a force to be reckoned with.”

Myron McMillin

Founder, botany.io

“I am not easily impressed. Bernard has never failed to impress me. Who do I recommend Bernard to? Well, anyone looking to increase conversions, drive traffic, increase the quality of leads to their site, or just sleep more easily.I have been fortune enough to work closely with Bernard and have had him run strategic online marketing initiatives on many projects. He is insightful, positive, straightforward, patient and kind. That is all interesting, but that is just the icing and not the cake.

The REAL reason I love Bernard is that he gets dramatic and measurable results. Implementing painless marketing automation, identifying the right traffic and targets and getting them to actually care about what you have to offer, making your site actually valuable, that is why I recommend Bernard. I am deluded enough to thing that I am a genius that can do anything. The second I started working with Bernard I realized that I knew only a fraction of what I thought I knew and I was working too hard to get only mediocre results. I have better things to do with my time than be mediocre.

Bernard is great, and that lets me be great at what I do best and get back to business. I am confident that he can do the same for your business and online marketing efforts.”

Justin Wu

“When it comes to Email marketing, Growth, and Sales leadgen Bernard is the guy for it. Was able to develop a full roadmap, tool stack and strategy after working with him through my growth needs. Highly recommend & look forward to working on other future projects!”

James Castro

“What happens when hyper-focused millennials on mission to crush digital join forces with a corporate consultant and sales guru who pushes himself as hard as he does his A-list clients? Think Strategy. There are very few people I would personally and professionally recommend talking big-picture money making ideas with, and even less who I trust to turn those ideas into actionable solutions.

Companies don’t consult with Bernard because they can afford him—they consult with Bernard because they wish they could afford him [full-time]! The crazy part? He’ll actually talk with you for free. His advice is down to earth, sincere, and sharp. It’s not hype, and it’s not solicited. I’ve written one recommendation on LinkedIn, and you’re reading it. Check him out.”
