"Media General couldn't be more happy with the results of the Blinder program. We now have traditional ad reps more comfortable with taking the Web to their advertisers. We plan to deploy Blinder and his team in more Media General markets."

"The Blinder Group was essential in helping us map and implement an effective online strategy. Our sales people were initially very wary of selling 'the Web.' But once Mike came to town, rode with our reps and showed them how easy it was to sell, their excitement was contagious; and the dollars started rolling in. I am sure we will sell out, at over $70,000 of new business!"
