Get your story told.

Each one of us has a compelling and unique story that defines what we’re about and helps us connect with others. JEM can help you articulate your story in the right tone via words and images. We let you clearly communicate what you have to offer and why it matters, ensuring your audience relates and feels confident in using your products and services. We welcome the opportunity to tell your story.

Grow your world.

Reaching global markets to grow your business is becoming a must-do. JEM can help in bridging the gaps between the local arena you know, and the farther afield markets you don’t. We can help your business be relevant in multiple markets, in communicating across cultures, languages, and geographies, and in allowing the borders to disappear. There will always be things that translate well and some that never will. Rather than learning as you go, let us be your guide.

See what people have to say about us!

I love when I get to say the word ‘WOW.’ In every project where I have engaged Jane and JEM Marketing, ‘wow’ was constantly coming out of my mouth. Apart from the quality of work, attention to detail, speed of execution, and pride in the finished product, working with JEM was fun! Tight timelines? Check. Complex Op Mechs? Check. Changes in scope of work? Check. Completed work on time and within budget? You guessed it…check! I have worked with many vendors over the years and Jane and team are on top of my go-to list. Their communication and project management skills are world-class. If you have marketing needs, big or small, give JEM a call and be ready to say…‘WOW!’

I hired Jane to prepare a rather detailed marketing communications plan and recommended tactics to launch a new product. Jane took on the assignment knowing the deadline was crucial, deciphered tons of information, performed research and completed the project within 4 days with outstanding content.

Jane is definitely a professional with a high degree of knowledge in all facets of strategic marketing.

I hired JEM Marketing to pinch hit in various areas of marketing within the product marketing group at two gaming companies. Jane is one of those people who just figure out how to get a task done — including clearing obstacles and turning difficult colleagues into allies. Her sweet spot is marketing communications. Her team did a great job creating a video for several kids’ brands at Broderbund, and getting the web site up and running. They have a great attitude, are flexible, and very loyal.
