Tim did a great job for us.”—Paul Butare, President, AcroSoft Corporation, South Carolina

We now have a stronger, more viable marketing program, and a more confident stance in the marketplace.”—Joe Hartsel, National Sales Manager, Bommer Industries, South Carolina
Important “We worked with several marketers to explain our project and goals. These professionals, had difficulty concisely defining our web site for marketing, and determining it’s direction appeared to overwhelm them. One skilled marketer, however, fully reviewed our site’s needs, became excited about what we were trying to accomplish, and recommended that we first find a professional to ‘define our exact message’ before we even moved into a marketing phase for our site. He recommended Tim Bryant as a person with the skills to do what we needed. From the beginning, Tim was very easy to work with, made us stop and think, and also asked questions we thought to be fairly unrelated to the development of taglines. His final product, however, proved he knew exactly what he was doing…and why those seemingly unrelated questions were important. Tim helped us determine our focus audience, generate wording that communicated our message effectively, and even helped our programmers and design team begin to envision the same message for the site. I would certainly recommend Tim Bryant as THE person to contact if you need direction branding your company, finding the targeted audience, or streamlining a message.”—Jeanne Fuller, President, For Access, San Antonio

The Pineapple Hill Experience
Pineapple Hill” is a residence and business retreat: a beach house ...but in a cow pasture. Client friends visit for workshops, brainstorming and planning sessions –and to play “par one” golf, shoot sporting clays, ride an old Jeep with no carpet or just hang out on the porch overlooking my "experimental vineyard" sampling experimental homemade wine talking about business, boats , beaches and other things. .
Relax. Think. Plan. Create.
Escape to The Hill.
