At MSCO, we do a lot of small business consulting. Over the last two decades, we have seen our results come through in a number of different ways. Oftentimes, we see a measurable growth in the business itself or its revenues, an explosion on social media, an influx of new clients and customers, or something like a successful launch of a new line of products or a seamless rebranding of an established company. Sometimes, however, we are able to see results in different (and much more public) ways.
Tonight is Westfair’s Family Owned Business Awards, and we’re proud to announce that one of our very own clients, T.F. Andrew, is being honored as one of the twenty award winners. As part of our small business consulting strategy, we nominated T.F. Andrew and helped them write their submission. They ran against more than sixty other small businesses in the area, and they were selected (by leaders in their respective fields) as one of the very best in Westchester and Fairfield counties. The ceremony is being held tonight in White Plains where Stew Leonard Jr. will be the keynote speaker.

With our small business consulting and guidance, we have helped transform T.F. Andrew into the award winning, sophisticated brand that it is today.

Local radio advertising has become a staple of our personal advertising strategy. Throughout the years, we’ve had multiple different spots on various stations in the New York City Metro area. This has allowed us to analyze and study our results from each test. By running ads during different day parts, on different days, on different stations, and with different messaging, we are able to examine our traffic and compare the results against each other to see what truly works best for us.
Our company has been around for over 20 years, so we have a little bit of an advantage when it comes to knowing who our clients are, what they want to hear from an ad, and when they want to hear it. However, we wouldn’t have this knowledge if we didn’t actually test the market and actively analyze our results. That being said, it’s extremely important for local radio advertising to be consistent. There’s nothing worse (especially for a marketer) than starting a campaign on local radio that has a lot of promise and then giving up before you really have a chance to see the results. With radio, you want to make sure you’re reaching the audience multiple times so they have a chance to really hear what you’re trying to say.
I’m sure you’ve heard one or two variations of our spots over time, but have you heard our newest addition? Click the link below to hear our latest local radio ad where Mark sits down and explains just a few of the things that we can do for your company or business at MSCO.
This unique interview format typically works really well on the radio, and our adaptation is proving to be highly effective (as you may have guessed from our previous post).Read More

A devoted father of two, has dedicated his life to helping Bronx fathers accomplish the greatest role in their lives – being a father. He works with fathers that want to be there for their son or daughter but don’t necessarily know what to do. He teaches them the value of being a good father and being financially stable.
Coach Lynn, as he’s known by most, assists New York fathers with job searching & job applying, housing situations, and child support. He also makes sure that fathers know how to prepare meals and understand the importance of staying fit. Stevan is willing to help with essentially anything a struggling father may need. Above everything else, he wants to make a difference in this world.
We have created Coach Lynn’s brand, Deeds Driven Dads and are helping him get his message out there through social media and public relations initiatives.

More than one hundred million people were drawn to the screen for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Sure, most people actually tuned in for the sports, but who doesn’t love the expert marketing insights that come from some of the most highly anticipated advertising of the year? I know I’m not the only one that watches solely for the commercials.
This year, it was Nationwide that surprised us with an ad that we just can’t stop talking about. The commercial begins innocently enough, with an adorable young boy talking about some things that he won’t ever do in life like ride a bike or learn to fly. I thought that it was going to take an inspirational turn, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. As soon as he’s done listing the things that he won’t be able to do, he reveals the reason behind it – he died from an accident.
Here’s a link to watch the full ad on YouTube.
The commercial was so shocking and seemed so out of place that we haven’t been able to stop talking about it. Our very own Mark Stevens was called upon by NBC News for his expert marketing insights. He was interviewed shortly after the spot aired and didn’t hold back on his opinions.
“There’s nothing more profound than the death of a child, and there’s nothing more disgusting than the abuse of that subject…” Mark begins his interview. He goes on to give his own expert marketing insights on Nationwide’s controversial Super Bowl commercial.
