What Our Clients Are Saying

I engaged Spencer and his Boots Road team at Carmel Bach Festival to provide marketing, communications, social media, and PR expertise for our 75th anniversary season. As a non-profit organization, we endeavored to do a lot with very little resources. Rising to the challenge, Spencer, Lynne, and the entire Boots Road staff became an adjunct member of our team; ever present at our year-long strategy sessions and challenging us to move beyond our creative comfort level. Their multi-faceted expertise eventually resulted in a highly successful rollout of the 75th season… and well under budget. Boots Road is a company with great heart and a dedication to supporting the arts. We are incredibly fortunate to have Spencer leading the way to champion the work of our arts organizations. Long after a project is done, you’ll invariably find Spencer and his team continuing to champion your work as an audience member, supporter, and an advocate. Their commitment is authentic, durable, and much appreciated.

Working with the Boots Road team on the redesign of our website helped our organization more clearly present our vision to our members and the public. The Boots team is thoughtful, meticulous and smart. They knew exactly the right questions to ask to help us produce the best design and content for the Community Alliance for Safety and Peace website.

The City has had a great experience working with Spencer and the Boots Road team as we completely revamp our website and other communication resources.

I have been working with Boots Road Group for more than seven years, first at UC Berkeley and now at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. The service provided is top notch. I'd highly recommend them in all facets of marketing, web design, logo design, and more. Boots Road is one of a kind, and their customized service is very much appreciated.

We love the BootsRoad team! They are great collaborators and built us a killer site on a platform we can manage. We actually receive unsolicited compliments on it, which makes us smile.

Spencer made a big contribution to the Obama campaign's success in Michigan. He managed our statewide radio efforts, designing a system so productive it was copied by Obama press teams in other states. He arranged radio, TV and newspaper interviews and wrote briefings for Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and other campaign figures. And he pitched in with our New Media team, helping design and execute our online presence while serving as our official photographer for appearances by Obama, Biden and others. Spencer's creativity and work ethic paid dividends daily, and it was a pleasure having him as part of our team.

Lynne is phenomenal with web design. I have valued her services for several years now and have always been impressed by her creative sense and her ability to digest my seemingly random thoughts into a unified whole. I have used Lynne's services on several websites and have recommended her to others. She is particularly patient, does not waiver from the task, and remains committed. I have been pleased with all her work and I know that the other website owners have been also.

Lynne produced excellent pieces, whether for distribution via the internet or for print publications. Lynne also had fantastic results for our website, distributing information to our current families to keep them well informed.

I could tell that Spencer's artistic sensibility and musicianship are of high level. He has very good ears and was hearing and detecting subtle changes to the mix from revision to revision. It is a pleasure to work with somebody that can and does appreciate what you do and how you do it. Spencer knows what he is listening for, knows what he wants and is great at communicating it very easily. I would work with him again anytime.

3-time Grammy Award winning Audio Engineer / Music Producer / Composer

Spencer was a key part of our communications team in Virginia, and his work was invaluable to our success in November. Spencer designed, built, and ran one of the largest, most successful radio and television booking operations anywhere in the country - and he did it all on a short timeline with limited resources. Spencer also brought a new level of focus and strategic precision to our broadcast media outreach, implementing a system that matched interview guests - including senior campaign officials and major celebrities - with the outlets and audiences where they would have the greatest impact. From writing briefings, locking down interviews, and even serving as the campaign photographer at key events, Spencer put in the hard work and the extra hours to always make sure the job was done right.

While I struggled to articulate the mood and emotional truth I was aiming for in a given scene, Spencer came back with a musical score that showed he really got it. His compositions lent depth, meaning, and beauty to the story in ways I couldn't imagine. I knew he was wickedly smart, but I was blown away by his artistic talent. What a rich experience.

In a world full of noise, we struggled to break through on a non-profit budget. Boots Road changed the way we think about marketing. Instead of doing more, we have learned to work smarter. Instead of selling our product to an audience, we have learned to think about our audience segments and their needs first.

Colleen Finegan Bailey
Executive Director

Many thanks again, Lynne, for your stunningly creative concepts and work on my website design. You truly helped me think through how to present the essence of my business.
