1) Answered by a B2B marketer within a competitive industry:
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Helen Eichel and her team. Helen provided design services for our new website. We love our website and hear constant compliments from our clients and colleagues. As part of our website transition, Helen assisted our team with a brand personality workshop. This was a well worthwhile adventure for our firm to discover our true brand personality. Not only has it helped in the development of our website, but has been the impetus in setting our firm apart from our competitors.
Helen and her team are very attentive of our needs and offer valuable insight on market trends. Most importantly, she goes out of his way to make sure we are happy. She drops everything to assist us at every turn.
They are a pleasure to work with and that is why I am strongly recommending Imacom Design. I’d like to thank them for their outstanding work and great working relationship with our company.

2) Answered by a marketing partner focused on B2B clients in very competitive environments:
Helen provides my firm with trusted counsel on a great number of projects... what was learned from her presentation was what was promised.
My client, a dedicated safety distribution specialist with locations throughout North America and a seventy-year legacy, learned not only that they had a personality — but specifically what that personality is and how to embrace their story...
As a distributor, my customer sells products manufactured by myriad other companies and over the course of their 70-year journey, they became a patchwork of personalities at best or an emotionless cash register at worse.
It became clear to me as their marketing counsel that we needed more than tactical elements — web, catalogs, and specification sheets. We needed to find ourselves. I tapped Helen’s experience immediately.
Through preliminary research initiatives, every voice in the organization was heard and cataloged. Then the results were presented in a brilliant focus group that was part collegial experience and part emotional debate.
However, the session never lost focus. Rather, it increasingly gained focus. Helen set the stage so beautifully, helping everyone — from seasoned sales representatives to warehouse hands — to feed slowly and easily on the concept of brand personality. She illustrated the inherent financial value of speaking consistently from this story. She then pivoted perfectly to what was learned about our own brand’s personality.
She illuminated a path forward for internal and outbound communications and helped individuals at all levels of the organization embrace their role in the collective personality... I highly recommend Helen for any similar work in this area of expertise.

1) Answered by a marketer and business owner:
Being in the marketing industry myself, it's rare to find a speaker that presents unique and interesting content that appeals to those with and without marketing expertise. I always love to attend events or workshops to hear what Helen Eichel has to say, because she brings such a unique perspective. With an unusual blend of expertise and passion in psychology and marketing Helen teaches how the human brain drives decision making. This is probably one of the most basic, yet misunderstood aspects behind marketing success today.
Whether the topic is storytelling or emotional understanding, she get's to the core of "WHY" people decide to buy, and helps attendees understand how to break it down and do it themselves. This is especially critical for small business owners who are almost always DIY'ing their marketing (and putting too much focus on the less compelling "WHAT" that they do). I would highly recommend Helen as a presenter to anyone who's audience is business owners (and yes, even marketing professionals) seeking to grow their business through a deeper understanding of WHY PEOPLE BUY!

This presentation [workshop] gave me the confidence and the jumpstart to not only create my web site, but include the important components that will help my site achieve the results I need. I most appreciated Helen’s analytics and the research behind her information. She provides concise statistics and the psychology that helps it all make sense.
I would recommend this presentation simply for Helen’s manner of presentation. Her clear, concise manner gave me the confidence to start creating my own site, and to know exactly the key components to garner the best results for action.

I attended Helen's presentation on Telling Your Brand's Story, and found it informative and different from other marketing and branding presentations. Her presentation is interactive,... which means you learn something about yourself as well as your company.

About a year ago, our company website was in serious need of updates and I didn’t know where to begin. Through working with Hobrath Group, I was introduced to Helen of Imacom Design.
We already had a functioning website that worked and we wanted to update our look but not change it entirely. Helen did a great job of doing just that. She arranged things in a way that was both flattering to the eye as well as functional for users.
Without having a background in html, the thought of being involved with our website revisions was rather intimidating. Helen always made me feel very comfortable with decisions that were made and was especially helpful with articulating things in a way that I could easily understand.
... I would like to thank Imacom for equipping us with a fantastic website upgrade and I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

Creativity, design talent and caring. The three key attributes that Helen Eichel, from Imacom Design, brings to her client projects.
Helen has been our company’s marketing partner since the mid 1990s. At that time, our marketing company hired her as Head of Design. She was an immediate success and was the inspiration behind many of the design successes for our customers.
Everyone likes working with her. She likes to solve problems. Explain to her what you are trying to achieve and she delivers solutions. We’ve worked together for more than 20 years and I feel sometimes that she knows exactly what I am trying to say better than I do!
... Helen produces vivid and powerful results in stunning graphic advertising, website production, crisp print literature, and even created one the first e-marketing newsletters at the advent of that industry...
I wholeheartedly endorse anyone looking for a superb mind to accompany super graphics talent to call on Helen Eichel and her company. You will not be disappointed.
