What a few clients have to say:
“One of the many advantages of working with Buddy is that he is a One Stop Shop. He can write, produce, direct, sell ... and then some. Typically, creative people like him are often times unorganized – but that is just the opposite with Buddy. He is almost like an accountant when it comes to his organizational skills. I have worked with Buddy for over 25 years and he keeps coming up with fun new creative twists, which not only makes the process fun, it also consistently produces positive results for the clients who work with him. One of his valuable characteristics is that he has a 6th sense. He not only reads people accurately, his instincts and experience always take everyone down the right path to a very successful campaign. I would strongly recommend this trustworthy team player.”
Bob Siegel, Owner & CEO
“Buddy, it is an absolute pleasure to work with you and especially to call you my friend. Our story began eleven years ago with me as a scared kid in front of a TV camera wanting to tell my story. You have played no small part in helping to shape Pawn America into the most advanced and professional retail pawn store chain in the US. Thank you!!!”
Brad Rixmann, Owner, President & CEO
“In the world of marketing, a frequently heard constant is the worn out clique ‘think out of the box.’ During the past 15 years, my company, 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment, has experienced this unique privilege in spades. If you are in need of a politically correct or fancy presentation coupled with charts and graphs, look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, your intent is to put points on the board and capture results, he is your man. Buddy Cohen is one of the best-kept secrets in the creative game. Give him a shot, you won’t be disappointed.”
Enrico, Chief Executive Officer

“ ‘Buddy is a great guy’ lol. No really. I have worked with Buddy for over 8 years. He has helped with the imaginative side of creating commercials as well as directed me during the spots. I feel he brings out the best in my abilities and has crafted a unique and easily identifiable name brand for my law firm. Buddy provides a great working environment, is creatively flexible and consistently produces fantastic advertising. I would recommend him to any business.”
Steven J. Terry, Personal Injury Attorney

“Having Buddy involved with our marketing and sales strategies has been extremely helpful as we move into new business markets. We will continue working with him in the future.”
