On the Mark made our Houston launch a complete success!
“On the Mark made our Houston launch a complete success!”

"On the Mark made our Houston launch a complete success!  As a new mobile app, we needed to drive awareness across multiple channels.  In addition to securing all relevant broadcasting and print coverage, On the Mark connected with local influencers who were critical in establishing authority for our brand on social media.  Mark also conceived of a partnership with a local non-profit that benefited both parties.  And, most importantly, On the Mark helped us craft the right message for each constituency, and Houston has been our most successful local launch by far."

“Mark and his team have been an integral part of the success of Houston Cinema Arts Society for over five years.”

"Mark and his team have been an integral part of the success of Houston Cinema Arts Society for over five years.  He has worked tirelessly to promote our programs and it shows.  The amount of press coverage that our largest program, Houston Cinema Arts Festival, receives on all media channels has been outstanding and possibly unprecedented for any Houston arts organization.  Mark's efforts on our behalf go above and beyond as he is always looking for new and innovative ways to help us fulfill our mission. It was his idea to initiate our successful summer program, Julydoscope, now in its 5th year and drawing larger crowds each year.  From ideas to promotion to helping us form significant relationships with media partners, we feel lucky to have Mark on our team."

After years of searching I finally found a Public Relations agency in Houston that is connected to the city in every way.

"After years of searching I finally found a Public Relations agency in Houston that is connected to the city in every way.  I can start a sentence, and they can finish it.  On the Mark seamlessly handled the transition of  Martha Turner Properties when it was acquired by Sotheby's International Realty in January 2014, and Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty has been going strong ever since.  In terms of brand awareness and overall exposure, I don't think anyone rivals us thanks to the outstanding job OtMC continues to do for us today.  We just have great energy together."

No one has represented my company, my projects, and myself with the same degree of consistency, diligence and results, which speak for themselves.

"OtMC helped us launch One Park Place in downtown Houston in Spring 2009 in a neighborhood that was not yet considered residential and at a time when the global economy was collapsing.  But  the property leased up steadily in spite of the unfavorable climate thanks in large part to a Public Relations & Marketing campaign that gave the building and the neighborhood an outstanding level of media exposure, traffic and word-of-mouth buzz.  The building has been 100% occupied since 2011.  Since then they have handled all the PR for my most recent projects, including 2900 West Dallas in 2013 -- our luxury mid rise in Montrose that now has the distinction of being the fastest lease up in Houston apartment history -- as well as The Grove at Wilcrest, The Susanne and 1900 Yorktown. In the 55 years I've spent building apartments, no one has represented my company, my projects, and myself with the same degree of consistency, diligence and results, which speak for themselves."

“I’ve known Mark for a long time – I had the honor of being his first client when he opened his firm in 2008, and I think he might have even officed with us in the early days for a little while there. He has helped us launch a variety of new restaurants including RDG + Bar Annie and The Grove, always with tremendous success and creativity and, really, a rather infectious energy. People from other restaurants would always call me and ask me about him when they were thinking about working with him. I’d say, ‘Well, if you want to know what the pulse of things are, you talk to Mark, because he always seems to know what the pulse of things are.’ And he makes it entertaining, which is important, because PR is kind of an entertainment business. The key to PR is getting the right PR for the right people, and Mark has always had a real knack for that.”
