What Sets Us Apart–Our Distinguishing Service/Product

We are locally owned and operated and only offer services and products to a handful of local businesses to ensure that our clients are getting the best possible care and attention.

Core Values

We were was fed up with corporate businesses offering marketing solutions to local businesses who lost the basics of offering one-on-one custom care. We are not just out to sell you something. We value a good night’s sleep and would rather do right by our clients than watch our profits grow.

Mission & Vision Statement

To provide local businesses everything they need to make sure their company’s brand, time, and money are being used to its full potential, all while working cohesively.

Our Promise

We promise to never be a pushy salesperson, to never nickel and dime you, to be your friend first, then your diligent and thorough contractor after. We promise to care about the bigger picture and do what’s right for your business, always.


At Hillsdale Marketing Group, we are passionate, we are caring, and we understand the importance of individuality—knowing that businesses need a partner who can help them every step of the way, day in and day out.

Rules We Live By

We will never create an image, video, use fonts, or conduct business that does not follow our brand!
• We always send out thank you notes to new clients
• We always send out Christmas cards to all clients with our hand-written signature
• We will sponsor events if they are relevant to our industry or they will get the proper exposure
• We will always use the hashtags relevant to our theme and slogan + extras if needed, but they need to follow our guidelines
• We will NEVER give out pricing to clients listed out on a giveaway or leave behind. We will ONLY provide custom quotes or general prices that could take away from a potential follow up or consultation.
• We will provide a leave behind to any potential client!
• We will assign clients to salespeople and salespeople will be responsible for making sure client is happy with their order. Amanda will conduct 6mo. Cold calls to each client to ensure they are happy with salesperson.
• We do offer $25 off client’s next order when they write us a review and encourage honest reviews, always!
• We will try to encourage as much as possible collecting emails to add to our mailing list
• We will conduct monthly blogs
• Everything we do must be proofed! Of course, within reason ;)
