The Best Of® Alki/West Seattle

~ Leo Smith, Architect

“18 years and 72 mailings of advertising with The Best Of West Seattle and it’s still “The Best.”
~ Jan’s Beauty Supply

“LOVE IT! I have tried so many different types of ads and it feels SO good to find one that works.”
~ Cherry Consignment

“Out of all of the local advertising we use, The Best Of coupon book is the most effective. We have far more customers come in with a coupon from The Best Of book, than any of the other coupons we have offered. We have used them for years, and plan to continue!”
~ Todd Ainsworth - West Seattle Autoworks

“LaVida Massage has been using The Best Of West Seattle since our opening 3 years ago. The Best Of West Seattle has consistently delivered. I look forward to every edition because I know that our phone will be ringing. Great product, great results!!”
~ Paul Silver - LaVida Massage

“It has been great working with you over the years. I first used The Best Of many years ago when I was in the retail apparel business and it worked for me then. I am now using this means of advertising for my Liquor Store and it is working for me now. The coupons bring in customers that we would not otherwise have come in to my business. The customers use the coupons and you can actually evaluate the response unlike many types of advertising. I highly recommend the use of The Best Of.”
~ Leon Capelouto - Capco Beverages

“I’ve used The Best Of Alki/West Seattle booklet for a couple years now, and it’s helped me grow my business more than any other form of advertising. It’s been the perfect advertising tool for my small business!”
~ Megan Phillips, Owner, New Body Pilates

The Best Of® Burien

“Dear Steve, I wanted to drop you a line and let you know, I can’t do without “The Best Of Burien/ Normandy Park.” I get results with the book. I’ve done all sorts of advertising, but I really haven’t found anything as consistent and effective as “The Best Of.” Thanks so much for all your support in my business, Pretty Paws.”
~ Kathy Graf, Certified Master Groomer, IPG

“The Best Of Burien has been great for us. People in our community want to support their local businesses and they check their Best Of Burien booklet for coupons for services or goods they need. We certainly get a good return on our advertising dollar with The Best Of Burien and enjoy getting to know more of the Burien/ Normandy Park community!”
~ Frank Pannier Owner/Manager - ALL-PRO PEST CONTROL

The Best Of® Issaquah & Bellevue

“I have been a client of The Best Of Issaquah & The Plateau mailings for 15 years, and plan to advertise in their book for as long as I am in business. This publication has been my number one source of new patients since the beginning, helping to focus marketing near my area.”
~ Rhonda Newton, DDS

“The Best Of has been our primary advertising medium for a couple of years and has certainly created greater recognition for our kids salon, and many new and repeat patrons. Positive results and great service makes The Best Of our #1 advertising vendor.”
~ Traci & Rob Benson - Brat Pack Salon

“Blind Alley has been using The Best Of coupon books since the Nineties and we continue to see positive results above those that we see from coupons in stuffed envelope mailers. We believe their bound coupon books are kept longer by consumers rather than just browsed through and tossed as is common with individual coupons. Give The Best Of a try and measure the results. We did and are still using the books after more than 20 years!”
~ Kurt M. Evers, President - The Blind Alley, Inc.

The Best Of® Puyallup

“The Best Of Puyallup is our number 2 top producing mailer but has the highest return on investment.  We are pleased with the outcomes, knowing this is the highest value for all of our marketing dollars. Additionally, April is a gem to work with—especially in an industry where everyone wants our business and will make promises they cannot keep. We will continue to publish in The Best Of Puyallup as long as we are in business!"
Emmett & Jana Brost, Team Brost, LLC

The Best Of® Kirkland

“I highly recommend advertising with The Best Of Kirkland. I placed an ad and was amazed at the number of contacts I received and great clients I developed from it! I definitely will continue to use The Best Of Kirkland for my print advertising.”
~ Cathy Villemure, CPA

“In the first week, I received seven calls, did a number of estimates, and now have three jobs scheduled. That’s powerful marketing!”
~ George Medellin Owner, Pacific Northwest Maintenance

“The Best Of Kirkland consistently brings in business and customers for us. We rely on it to advertise our party supplies year-round.”
~ Judy Bohl, Party For Less Kirkland, WA

“The Eco Cartridge store has been consistently advertising with The Best Of Kirkland for over 8 yrs. We find it a valuable way to help us grow our business and get the word out about our services. It has been a pleasure working with Emily and their design team.”
~ Jill Haverkamp, Owner- ECO Cartridge

The Best Of® Wenatchee & Tri Cities

“We have used The Best Of coupon book for 17 years, and it has been worth every penny! The coupons drive traffic to our storefront and help us close sales if needed. Working with Scotty has been a pleasure and he has kept us on top of our marketing. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to boost their sales.”
~ Carolyn Corrado - Spencer Carlson Unsurpassed Furniture and Design

“As a relatively new business, we have been very cautious about screening potential advertising vendors. It is my experience and opinion that very few offer real value for the cost of advertising. To be honest, when Scott approached us initially, I was skeptical. However, I had to admit I was already familiar with his publication and that I had personally used coupons from The Best Of in the past. In the end, my experience as a consumer with The Best Of combined with the overall quality in the design and presentation of the publication itself led our business to give The Best Of a try. We knew immediately when the publication hit the mailboxes, because from day one we were getting new clients directly from the mailer. A month later, we are still receiving new clients from this publication. I can say that our advertising experience exceeded any expectations we could have had, and we intend to continue advertising in The Best Of for the foreseeable future!”
~ Kelly Reagan - The Fix Machine

“We have advertised with many different companies and products and by far feel that The Best Of The Tri-Cities coupon book has been the biggest return on investment. Scotty is a pleasure to deal with and very professional. We would suggest The Best Of The Tri-Cities to any business marketing plan, big or small.”
~ Todd and Susan Schuermann, Owners/Operators - Budget Blinds of Richland

“I wanted to share with you how pleased I am to be in your book for the past 17 years. We always have such great redemption and see new people each mailing. It is great to have a local Direct mail piece that gives us a ROI so consistently.”
~ Shon Smith, Owner - Wok About Grill

“My name Kyle Chism, I am the General Manager here at Kimos Sports Bar. We have currently been doing business with Backstrom enterprises for the past 5 years. We see good graphic results as well as great return on the mailers. I would recommend Backstrom enterprises to any business looking to expand sales.”
~ Kyle Chism - Kimos Sports Bar

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the 17 years of being in The Best Of Greater Wenatchee. We still get new members each mailing, which proves continuity builds redemption. We also appreciate the exclusive for Gym Membership! Thank you for a great business relationship. YOU ARE A ROCK STAR!!”
~ Katie High - Gold’s Gym

The Best Of® Yakima

“I’ve run ads over the years for my business, B&C Sewing, and I put The Best Of Yakima off for a year thinking it wouldn’t do much for my business,. but after trying it out,. WOW,. I saw instant traffic,. I’ve run consistent ads, over more than a year, and I think that I lost money that year that I put it off! This has made a difference."
~ Rob Pottenger - B&C Sewing

“I’ve been running ads constantly with The Best Of Yakima, and have found out that my business Country Kids Early Learning Center gets calls coming in and new customers every mailing! I was hesitant to sign up, because I didn’t know how effective it would be for childcare,. I see how it could benefit restaurants, but wasn’t sure about my business. The first ad did ok,. so I stuck with it,. then noticed after the repetition that this was VERY effective! My bottom line has increased from this type of advertising."
~ Laura B. Owner, Country Kids Early Learning Center.

“I’ve run ads in The Best Of Yakima for my restaurant, Russillo’s Pizza & Gelato, on and off for about 2 years, and most mailings get a lot of attention. My business has changed locations and I’ve noticed this is a great way to get new customers to my new location and let existing customers know where we are. The Best Of Yakima does have great results, I like it.”
~ Curry/Owner, Russillo’s Pizza & Gelato

"The Best Of Yakima coupon book is definitely worth the investment.  We offered to waive the registration fee and parents love it! It has increased the enrollment at our centers and has given us such positive exposure in the community.  The first time the book went out with our ad we received about 7 new families!  It essentially paid for itself!"
~ Laura Bachofner, Country Kids Yakima
