"Yes!" That's pretty much our answer when it comes to any marketing solution our clients might request or require. We'll run a 10K in their target audience's shoes to know who needs to experience what, where, when. What's newest, what's next? Already on it and into it. And BTW, we never, ever forget the service part of full service.

SCOTTSDALE'S MARTZ AGENCY TURNS 30 YEARS YOUNG
Agency Successfully Transforms Itself in Changing Times
Scottsdale, AZ (September 10, 2010) – The Martz Agency, one of the top Arizona-based advertising and public relations agencies, celebrates its 30th year of business this week. With three decades of unique and award-winning work, the Martz Agency is a Valley mainstay in the advertising, marketing, promotional products and public relations fields.
Led by founder and CEO Carrie Martz, the agency has grown from a small company with a handful of employees to one of the top female-owned agencies with a strong regional brand, clients in the entertainment, retail, real estate and non-profit fields, and community involvement through philanthropy and nonprofit work.
“Thirty years seems like a long time, but I feel like we’re just getting started,” said Carrie Martz, founder and CEO of the Martz Agency. “Because of business conditions affecting some sectors during the last few years, we’ve had to reinvent our agency’s focus and vision to meet new needs for our clients and the media. Today, we continue to offer rock solid public relations and advertising services for national, regional and local clients, as well as branding and marketing promotion, social media management and word-of-mouth campaigns.”
In 2009 and into 2010, Martz Agency catapulted Zhu Zhu pets to huge awareness levels with a national PR and marketing push. Zhu Zhu pets were named 2009’s hottest toy of the year according to Advertising Age. In 2010, the agency has made several new hires to broaden its push into social media management for clients, an area that is quickly overtaking other means of traditional corporate communications.
Over the last 30 years, Carrie and her agency have been recognized for leadership, innovation and achievement with respect to both business and philanthropy. Highlights include Marketing Co-Chair, Super Bowl XXX (1995); Athena Award (honoring businesses with fewer than 100 employees) presented by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce for a business (1998); Sterling Award given by the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce for the Small Business of the Year (2000) and YWCA Maricopa County Woman Business Leader of the Year (2004).
Carrie Martz formerly served on the board of Childhelp USA, and is currently a board member of the Phoenix Suns Charities and the 2011 Gala Chair. She also founded the original Home of Miracles and the WWDPGO (Women Who Don’t Play Golf Organization), as a non-profit.
