We love working with Tank Girl! Deirdre always brings extra value with her in depth knowledge of the local market and her focus on the AEC industry. She and her team created gorgeous graphics for us over a holiday weekend and coached our staff to give an inspired presentation to an important client. Deirdre is a pleasure to work with and knows her stuff!

As a small business it has been hard to keep up with the ever evolving marketing strategies needed to thrive, but with TankGirl we have been able to revamp our business and the way we meet and retain clients. Their team has brought new ideas and insight to our company and has made every part of the rebranding process so easy.

The TankGirl team has been nothing short of an amazing partner to Venn. It’s one thing to hire a marketing firm to accomplish some deliverables but that doesn’t begin to describe the partnership, leadership and creativity this team has brought to us. Deirdre and her team have designed our logo, created our website, messaged our brand, lead initiatives for our strategic growth, managed our headshots and company image and continue to evolved and grow as we do. TankGirl is not a firm that we outsource to, they are a member of the Venn family and have been one of the most pivotal partnerships we have engaged with to get us to where we are today. As much as we want to be the only one that TankGirl focuses on, we would be remiss if we didn’t give the highest regards and referrals to work with TankGirl to grow your business as big as you can dream – they will stand by your side as your rocket ship takes flight!

The Tank Girl team did a fantastic job in facilitating our transition from more archaic software programs to InDesign. The training they provided was purposeful and well-paced, but accounted for a variety of skill levels. It has been the foundation of a very successful move into the 21st Century!

I love working with Deirdre Gilmore and her team at TankGirl Marketing. They are the very best to work with! Deirdre is incredibly responsive, has a vast knowledge and practical understanding of our industry, more specifically our business as a commercial builder. She understands the challenges and frustrations we so often encounter. TankGirl Marketing provides real time, detailed solutions that help us craft our messages and present ourselves in the best possible manner to our clients that position us for success. I’ve known Deirdre for twelve years and I love collaborating with her and getting things done. It is such a fun process and the results are impressive.

Before contacting TankGirl Marketing, our company had never worked with a marketing firm before, so we were a bit unsure about what to expect. But right from the beginning, their team made us comfortable with where we were in the process, as well as with them on a personal and professional level. They helped us decide where to start developing a business development program, what they could do to help us, and what we had to do ourselves in order for the creation of a marketing plan to be successful. They coached and encouraged us each step of the way. It was clear that they understood our industry extremely well. Not only did they guide us in the development of our marketing plan, they also helped us develop professional looking proposal packages and a new company logo. They continue to work with us so seamlessly, and respond so quickly, that it’s almost like having our own in-house marketing team. We recommend them highly!

We have used Tank Girl Marketing to augment our existing marketing staff on some of our largest pursuits. Deirdre and TankGirl are able to immediately become engaged in the planning, outlining, and draft development. They wind up just another part of the team that works with and supports our project and business development staff. Their support in the planning and logistics as well as their ability to improve the graphical design and readability is a welcome addition to any pursuit effort. Because of TankGirl’s experience, they are able to adapt as necessary and provide the right level of support when needed to make the biggest impact during proposal development.
