Hindsight being 20/20, I made the best marketing decision with Katy Magazine. You helped my business spark into existence. It didn’t slowly come to be or take 7 days like creation, it was being prepared before we even opened our doors and it continues as we continue to grow. Thank you for seeing our business for the little gem that it was (and helping others see it too)!”

“The Katy Magazine team takes ‘marketing partnership’ to an unparalleled level. This is not a case where a handful of sales people engage with you to get you in, and then disappear until renewal time. With Katy Magazine, it is quite different. And it is not just one account manager that assists with your marketing. The whole Katy Magazine team enthusiastically promotes my brand with what seems to be 10 to 15 friendly, caring, responsive, always-engaging, skilled marketing specialists. They have been working for me almost daily on a multitude of marketing fronts. In addition to always ensuring print ads look right every time, the Katy Magazine team has consistently spoken up my brand on social media, at a full array of Katy events and on their own web page. They promote you wherever they go. I can’t say enough about how pleased I have been with the entire Katy Magazine team. For the past 18 months we have had countless outstanding customer experiences with Katy Magazine and we look forward to continuing our true marketing partnership into the future!”
– Dr. Jason B., ER Katy
“The ad looks fantastic! We are thrilled and ready to see it in the next issue. Thank you and your team for all your hard work! We are so pleased with Katy Magazine’s customer service.”

“These ladies know how to construct an award-winning publication, and how to have a good time doing it! Thanks so much for helping increase our visibility.”
– Richard, Katy Budget Books
“As a customer of Katy Magazine, I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the services you and your team provide. I am convinced that you and your team have much to offer to the small business person with a sense of urgency about how to let the world know about the services they offer.
First of all, I have no need to ever use anybody else for the online service you provide when I’m announcing job openings. Every single one of the jobs we posted received an enormous response, allowing us to quickly fill the needs we have. You obviously have great coverage because I’m not exaggerating when I state that there is no need to spend extra money announcing jobs in any other manner.
For a business person arriving at Katy for the first time, I obviously got approached by many different advertisers. They all have their ‘take’ on how good they are. All I have going for me is trust that the person I’m dealing with is legitimate and that my business will indeed be marketed properly. No matter how good a marketing plan we may have, the initial stabs at marketing are just that: stabs in the dark hoping for something to work.
You and your team do something that is vitally important to the new business person: you make them feel at ease quickly about the investment they chose to make with you. The manner in which you drum up social media excitement is like nothing I have ever seen before. We quickly increased our “likes” on Facebook thanks to your intervention. Although my ads are only seen quarterly, that is best ‘bang for the buck’ ad I’ve ever placed because I receive at least 3-5 calls per week with people specifically letting me know that they heard about us through Katy Magazine.”
– Jose M., Camp Bow Wow

I sat down at my kitchen table and strolled through the entire magazine. I admire the quality and style of this magazine. Once I finished glancing through, I went back to the editor’s note page and began to read. Katrina, your story is similar to mine and it held my attention until the very end. Your story has really inspired me this evening, and I wanted to personally take the time to wish you and Katy Magazine all the success!”
