Advertiser Testimonials

“The number of inquiries I receive has increased 50%, the quality has improved even more, and my revenue is up significantly. On reflection, it’s wholly attributable to advertising in The Buzz. It’s turned out to be an investment in a far better future than I ever imagined. I have more and better clients, they are funding great and glorious things, and I am happy and optimistic in ways that few of my colleagues are. Take a bow.” - Russell W. Hall, Russell W. Hall & Associates, P.C., Buzz advertiser since 2006

“As co-owner of a Houston-based advertising agency, we value The Buzz Magazines and what they do for our clients. In a world of ‘canned content,’ The Buzz editorial continues to be locally written and unbiased. We also appreciate the fact that sponsored content is identified as such, and no pay-for-play deals are made. A true community magazine that still has virtue.” – Chris Caldwell, Partner, Briggs & Caldwell Advertising, Buzz advertiser since 2009
