"I was not intending to include any radio advertising in the marketing expenditure for Auckland Plumbers Group... that was until I heard the jingle that Ronnie Mackie had created! My mind was changed immediately and we have used this jingle for nearly six years now and we continue to have customers choose us after hearing one of our radio adverts... Great work Ronnie!"
Andrew Durrans, Auckland Plumbers Group
"Ronnie kindly spent over an hour with us understanding our business, but also importantly who Amy and I were. From there Ronnie requested some time and he would come back to us. Ronnie touched base a few days later. He had an idea, but he needed our buy in, both in the idea and to trust him. “Let him do what he does best and trust him” was my thoughts at the time.
Ronnie explained that the following Friday we would receive a courier package at our office with a new jingle on a USB to be used as our radio campaign. Friday arrived, the package arrived, we nervously listened to the jingle for the first time.
“Nailed it” was my comment to Amy. Ronnie has captured exactly what we wanted.
Since the advert has gone to air, we have had so many comments about the advert, both from clients arriving at our door and people we bump into out and about. It is certainly having an impact around town and people remember it.
Ronnie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to build brand profile through radio advertising. He will take the time to understand what you are after and what will suit your business. The key to success is to let Ronnie use his creative flair and trust him to do what he does best and you will not be disappointed. "

"Just a quick note to say thank you very much for our latest jingle. When we rebranded from FnF Fuels to Kiwi Fuelcards we chose a 'Kiwi' them and all our marketing has been around the 'good old kiwi way of life' and our unique history and lifestyle.
Your jingle picked up and carried that through perfectly. We had many great (and amusing) comments during our Northland promotion last year when we used your jingle.
At present the jingle is heard on our phone system when the customers are on hold. We actually have been asked numerous times to please not answer the phone too quickly as they want to hear more of the jingle.
Thanks again. "
Margaret Ware, General Manager, Kiwi Fuelcards
"Pawsome Cattery opened its doors for the first time on the 22nd December 2017. Being a brand-new business, I was very careful about my outlay at first and was a bit worred about committing to radio but once I heard the jingo Ronnie Mackie had produced for me, I know everyone would remember Pawsome and I had something truly special.
I first went to air in January 2018 and since then my business has now increased by over 550% since I started radio.
I have had people sing my jingle to me and it would be nearly everyday someone will say to me 'I want to go to Pawsome Meow'.
It still feels a little funny when I go to hop in my car and I have complete strangers pointing and singing my jingle to me.
My brand-new fledgling business has grown so much, I have not been able to take any more bookings from mid-December 2018 until mid-January 2019, and I credit radio for a lot of this.
I certainly would not be in the position I am now in my business without the help of radio and the great jingle. I will forever by grateful to Ronnie Mackie and NZME for this. "
