Testimonials

Allen
Hopps

We use FearWorm to take the guesswork out of our marketing, they are helping us make 2015 a solid year. Easy to work with and full of positive thinking and realistic expectations.

Rich
Hanf

This past year at Transworld was transformative. It was not an over the top booth display or any of that, it was one generic booth with two guys that opened my eyes to the NEW world of advertising.

Steve
Walls

I have 40 years of buying advertising and still can’t keep up with the latest. That’s part of the reason I hired FearWorm...they do it every day, I don’t. Also, not having to deal with the advertising has given me extra time to build my haunt and train actors.

Tim
Bunch

Running my pool business and building my haunt, I dont have time to deal with sales people stopping by the business and sending me 20 emails a day. I hired FearWorm to deal with all that. Last year we went over my entire advertising campaign in one hour on the phone and I was done for the season.

Shelly Wright

Media Buyer

Shelly Wright

Media Buyer

Shelly started in advertising and as a media buyer completely by accident. Fresh from my University of Texas degree in Elementary Education, she started her media career with a temp job answering the phone at a local Austin agency that suddenly needed help with a large statewide TV buy. The media director asked me if she wanted to work in media... and so it began! And as it turns out Wright, has a penchant for building crazy spreadsheets, digging into data and research to find the right audience and getting media reps to give me a lot of free stuff for clients.
