We started a new business and quickly understood that sales and marketing were of utmost importance and that we didn't have the skills or information needed to do the job. Bryce was introduced to us and he immediately got us rolling, and has plans and processes to keep us rolling! We love what he has been able to do for us, including a full customer experience review, and an inside/outside review of our site to help us understand how to use our building to best attract our potential customers (including banners and flags and posters). I love his holistic approach and he is a master at on-line media use, which is how marketing is done these days (I was a bit old-fashioned and wanted to use printed media adds). He also brought in a specialist for us to train our staff on sales. I highly recommend Bryce, he can get you where you need to go.

My whole team loves Bryce: his enthusiasm, positivity, helpfulness, as well as the knowledge and applied wisdom he brings to every meeting. Bryce is creative, thoughtful, and hard working. We hired him to augment our marketing efforts and he did just that and more. He organized us, gave us specific and actionable strategy, helped us identify who we were marketing to and understand how best to reach them, and supported us in spending our advertising dollars precisely. Our business has been steadily increasing since we hired him. I highly recommend Bryce for small businesses needing to up-level their marketing, he's a pro.

"I own a fitness studio in San Francisco, which requires constant marketing. We used to market on an as-needed basis, not strategically, and our business wasn't as profitable as we knew it could be. I was looking for someone to help us establish a brand image/strategy that excited people to join. Bryce encouraged us get to know our clients more than on a surface-level before our first meeting, which has turned out to be the foundation for every business decision we've made since then.
Bryce is methodical in his work -- giving us spreadsheets, handouts and homework. He's a great teacher in that he asked us questions (instead of lecturing) so we could arrive to the best marketing decisions on our own. Our sales are more than DOUBLE what they were this time last year, thanks to Bryce!! I could go on and on about everything I've learned from this invaluable experience. If you love working on your business and watching it grow, your time with Bryce will be worth every minute. It's exciting, thought-provoking and most importantly he helped us make a lot more money than we thought possible in such a short amount time!!!"

"Bryce is a true business partner whose expertise you can rely on when it comes to your marketing needs. When I was new to town and needed help crafting a plan of action for raising my company's visibility, Bryce gave me the tools and information I needed in order to take action right away.
He explained things in a way that I could understand (with zero marketing background) and addressed each of my needs with care. He really got into my business and I felt as if he was thinking as an internal advisor. He made strategic recommendations I hadn't thought of before and offered to connect me with relevant contacts in his network. Bryce is thorough, knowledgeable and he's a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him and the Root Group's services."

I sought the services of a local marketing consultant for our small business. I wanted someone who understood the local market and who could guide our efforts to develop an overall marketing and social media platform. I found Bryce Root of Root Group Marketing. Bryce exceeded my expectations. He has provided keen insights and was able to keep our project on track always with a respect for our budget. I would highly recommend Bryce and Root Group Marketing.

To put it simply, Bryce is incredible!
I was lucky enough to meet Bryce as I was in the beginning stages of starting my own business (something that was very new to me). So needless to say I was looking for all forms of support for the success of my business. From the moment I met Bryce, I knew that he was a person of integrity, professionalism, high standards and was passionate about what he was doing.
By working with Bryce you won't get just one thing, or even two. You gain a huge resource of knowledge, support and at times your own personal cheerleader. There hasn't been a moment where I didn't feel like he was available for me to shoot off a quick email for advice. Always knowing that he would be there with words of encouragement when venturing into new territory.
He is incredibly thorough too! From the initial assessment to every selection you decide for him to focus on, you get his full attention and dedication to your goals and success. He was extremely patient with me while starting out as I was not always certain of components of my budding business. He's brought me to a place where I feel incredibly confident of where I am going and how to approach areas that I wouldn't have had any clue or even considered as an option to market or partner with.
I also felt that his prices were incredibly fair, even for someone just starting out like me. So, don't be deterred if you think his services are out of reach. They aren't. He offers you a myriad of options to select what feels right for you at the time, knowing you can always revisit the others at a later time. This was something I truly appreciated.
I can't recommend Bryce and his services highly enough! I will definitely be using him throughout the continued growth of my company.

His creative marketing ideas had a "game changing" impact on several entrepreneurs in attendance These golden nuggets of information were ideas that attendees were able to implement immediately.
I highly recommend the investment of your time to sit in on one of Bryce's talks. He means business!
Shaz Roth, CEO - Pajaro Valley Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture
I was introduced to Bryce through a business partner. Bryce has many qualities but his greatest are his attention to detail, organization, ability to build strategic partnerships and his overall marketing expertise. Bryce is a pleasure to work with. He is truly invested in helping his clients achieve their business goals. We have been working together just a few months but I can already see the value in the partnership. My company has lofty goals and Bryce is helping us to lay the framework to achieve those goals. I recommend Bryce to any organization looking to grow and get a leg up on its competition.

Bryce has a wealth of information which he shared with our merchants at the Broadway, Burlingame Business District. His knowledge of identifying the problem for a small business and advising the appropriate marketing tool is amazing!

Our Mother's Day Run for Shelter was fast approaching. It is our only fundraising event of the year. When I met Bryce at a Pajaro Valley Chamber Mixer, I knew that our sponsorship package needed some attention...some updating. I'm an Executive Director...not a marketing/advertising specialist.
When we first met at the mixer, I could immediately tell that Bryce's experience working with community based organizations and with for-profit companies was going to be a benefit to my agency's needs. His calm and welcoming personality is the final attribute that made me take action and contact him.
During our initial meeting, we met all of our goals of the session. Afterwards, on several occasions, he gave in-depth follow-up advice. He provided easy-to-implement tips as well as guidance for new and potential opportunities.
I deeply appreciate Bryce's consultation on our outreach materials. I feel more confident in presenting our sponsorship packet and in making a request to companies and individuals for support of our mission. We have several new sponsors so far. I believe that our easier-to-read and more relevant packet has allowed us to engage more efficiently.
As my agency expands its opportunities to further engage OUR community towards ending homelessness, I will definitely work with Bryce again. We have a champion in Bryce...and I'm more confident in our messaging, sponsorship materials and strategy.
I recommend Bryce, for his skills, integrity, enthusiasm, patience and timeliness, amongst other things...like results!
Kimberly Ferm, Executive Director - Pajaro Valley Shelter Services
Bryce’s astute advice is worth every second. He asks a few simple questions and makes you think about your target customer in very insightful ways. I would recommend his services to my fellow small business.
