Country Club Coffee Warms Up to TLC


Our new client, Country Club Coffee, fell out of the sky. I was trying to find someone to fix my Breville Barista Express. Drake Bishop is so busy, he couldn’t help me. But he liked what I do for On Hold programs. As a Mocha Man, I couldn’t resist writing sample creative even before we had a deal. Cut to the chase: This became an obsession as I whipped out complete productions for each aspect of CCC’s diverse services. Here’s what Drake said about TLC’s on hold show: “It’s not good. It’s magnificent!” Listen to all or part of the 8-minute show. Tell us if you agree with Drake. Please?

After just 3 weeks on the phone, here’s what customers are saying: “How we have finally grown-up” / “That voice is familiar…” / “Put me back on hold, that was amazing” / “I never knew you sold that too”

Tradesmen International Jingle Production


Here’s what happens when an Iowa producer/musician connects with Italy, UK, and Arizona to create a new jingle. A well-known client with a long history of performance in the Home Improvement business, signed with Terry Loder Creative for a jingle and video production. Terry worked with talent from the world locations mentioned above. The result is a targeted work for Home Improvement Professionals. Even though it’s not for the general public, it will open the door for an even stronger image in our Quad City market. The client: Suburban Wholesale and Supply with JR Girskis at the helm. Great to work with Brian, and looking forward to a long and productive relationship. BTW, we knew of each other for years but got together on LinkedIn. Cool.

They Find Jobs — They Found Me


MONDAY (Make up your own date.) I received an e from Lindsey Hackman at Sedona Staffing Services in Dubuque. TLC had been recommended by their home office to create new radio spots. Lindsey knew I had done Sedona’s On-Hold program in the Quad Cities. It was pretty good stuff, so now, here we are with a challenge: 4 – 30 second spots. 2 weeks to develop creative, find talent, choose signature music, record the tracks and get em to Jeff Loder to mix. The first week was gathering facts. White knuckles later, like the next Tuesday, we have 4 scripts approved …. PLUS a new branding theme. “We’re just a job away,” which I felt tied all 4 spots together, yet each distinctly unique to that specific content. Hear all 4 spots right here, right now. Call a friend and share.
