“I am a Canadian executive who works for a Christian media ministry with 5 global offices. All of our revenues come from donors and patrons. Our ministry is small but mighty. As far as evangelism is concerned, I truly believe that our ministry is one of the best-kept secrets in Canada. And therein lies my problem! An evangelism ministry should never be a best-kept secret! I needed help.
“The challenge that faced my ministry is that I needed to grow the finances by growing the donor base… but I couldn’t grow the donor base without growing the finances! I needed to find a marketing agency whose business model matched my dilemma. I needed a marketing agency that had the expertise and skill of a full-service marketing super agency, but a fee structure that didn’t require a leap of faith from my board. FrontGate’s a-la-carte fee structure, along with their hyper-focused demographic expertise (Christian and Conservative audiences only) made them the ideal fit… and to my surprise… their services cover Canada too!
“When I read Scott’s story about the formation of FrontGate Media, I knew that I had found the agency that I wanted to work with. Scott, a 1st class marketer, applied his sense of sacrifice, stewardship, service, and faithfulness when he designed his business model. Scott did the unthinkable. In his business model, he fused accessibility with excellence. He found a way to come alongside both the small and the large.
“Thank you Scott for your custom solutions. Thank you also for challenging me to think bigger. Thank you for lending us your team’s time and talent to advance the Kingdom of God. Thank you for having a transactional fee structure that I could with at whatever scale I needed. When you built your agency’s business model, you thought of me before I thought of you! Keep helping others!”

“Thank you again for your desire to feature KINGDOM GAMES ENTERPRISES, LLC on your websites for potential clients to read. I am truly pleased with the responses and reviews I have received! Having just released Wisdomantics within the last year, I was lacking official reviews that I could post and provide to potential retailers and distributors as a marketing tool. With 83% participation in the Flyby Blogger Network, FrontGate has given me a report which features links for the website blogs and links for reviews posted on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and Instagram. I am now armed with another significant marketing tool which should enhance my business plan, provide unbiased beta testing, and give me the confidence to move the vision forward! I believe the blogger campaign was a great investment! I look forward to seeing the fruit of my labors as I continue to seek God’s plan and purpose for Wisdomantics! Thanks again for helping me establish forward momentum!”
