“eLuxury is ranked America’s fourth fastest growing company. Our marketing team at eLuxury.com worked with Sarah and the team at Lionfish on a video ad campaign to promote one of our products in a series of videos. Sarah pitched multiple video ideas and had to change gears suddenly and regroup with absolutely no complaints. She hit her deadlines well before they were needed, created an amazing series of video ads, was wildly receptive and responsive to suggestions in a professional and timely manner, and was a joy to work with overall. I cannot recommend Sarah and the Lionfish Team highly enough.”
Paul Saunders, Founder & CEO
“Lionfish Advertising receives my highest recommendation. In the two years they have taken over our advertising, we have seen our gross income grow 31%, while our advertising expense has decreased. One of their biggest strengths is in tracking and measuring return on the investment for much of what they do. This enabled us to better use advertising that truly targets our customers. Also, the quality of everything they produce is second to none. For results, a top quality image, and a return on your investment; Lionfish Advertising cannot be beaten.”

“Lionfish has been extremely helpful to my marketing needs at Ivy Tech Community College. They were able to professionally and quickly edit video footage for me, so that I could promote a program.

“Lionfish was very sensitive to our needs. . . The beautiful, new website went up at the beginning of February, 2015. Today, eight months later, September, 2015, we have calculated that the activity has increased by 72 %. We are now behind in such a serious amount of benches and tables that even four appointments five days a week is not getting us caught up. Today, there are ABC benches in 18 states.”

“I’ve been having a lot of client meetings, and the website is so AWESOME to have for presentations. Having all the demos right there, plus the video, and the look of the site, is very handy for me. I’ve received many positive comments on the site – so thank you, Tyler and the team. Sarah and her team at Lionfish Advertising did a fantastic job with our website. In seeking marketing advice for our 20th anniversary year, we found Lionfish and after our first meeting, we knew they were an excellent match for us. Audio and video samples are an integral component to our site, and the creative team at Lionfish handled it just fine! Most importantly, they truly listened to our suggestions along the way and were very open to everything we asked for. We love our new site and are totally impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by Sarah and her team.”

“In 2013, we commissioned Lionfish to redesign our 7 year old website. We met with Lionfish owner Sarah Fortune on several occasions to discuss our specific preferences and insure that our Firm was professionally represented and clearly expressed our mission. Sarah worked with us diligently to fine tune our Firm’s expression of the work that we do and the services we provide to our community. She not only took brilliantly crisp and natural photos of our staff but created a video that is now available for viewing on our website and Facebook page. Since that time, our Firm has undergone a tremendous transformation. Due to the positive community response to these media changes, we found it necessary to double our office space and have added 4 new staff. We are elated with our expansion and look forward to continue growth with Lionfish as our marketing partner. Thank you Lionfish! “

“They were instrumental in marketing my judicial campaign last year. They provided fabulous insight from billboards to letterhead. No detail was too small to overlook. Our campaign was unique as we had children’s smiling faces on our signs advertising Niemeier for Juvenile Court. Unlike other judicial candidates we tied our children theme to all of our advertising including radio, television and fliers. Their contacts made everything run smoothly. Best of all we spent only one-third of the amount my opponent spent, but yet won by twenty percent of the vote. Obviously, results matter in an election or business. I will not hesitate to rely on them in the future.”
Brett J. Niemeier – Judge

Our organization reached out to Sarah and Lionfish to help with some advertising for a fundraiser we are having in February.

Lionfish created an invitation that was both unique and creative, as well as professional. It was exactly what we needed to get the word out and create interest in our event!”

“From the moment I walked into Lionfish Advertising, I was instantly inspired. I became motivated to be a more knowledgeable, creative, and an all-around professional individual. After learning about how Lionfish functions as a full-service advertising agency, I grew excited at the endless possibilities of what I could take away from my experience.
In my short time here as an intern, I have noticed a transformation in myself. Not only have I enriched my professional involvement, but I have grown to become a much wiser person and also view the world through a different, clearer lens. I owe it all to Sarah Fortune for being an amazing mentor throughout my experience here at Lionfish Advertising Group.
Not only does Sarah own and direct the success of Lionfish, but she also took the time to educate and provide advice on life. Her guidance was not only significant pertaining to the world of advertising, but it was also valuable information that could be applied to being a successful and happy woman. Sarah has easily become one of my greatest role models. Being a young woman myself and just about to graduate college and “enter the real world,” I have been able to take my time spent with Sarah and turn it into multiple life lessons that I am sure will stick with me for years to come. Sarah’s leadership and business knowledge that she has passed onto me will be something I know I will be able to utilize in my future career as well.
Interning at Lionfish has allowed me to gain the knowledge I was searching for and more. On top of gaining new understanding about how an ad agency works, I have increased an overall appreciation of how important it is to network and connect with other professionals in the community. I attended Chamber Networking and News (CNN) meetings and have expanded the skill of pitching business ideas to other leaders in the Evansville area. Lionfish has inspired me to become a more creative person as well.
I have been surrounded by not only the strategic side of the advertising process, but I have been exposed to the creative side as well. I have seen first-hand the artistic development and what it takes to cultivate the designs in order to fulfill the clients’ requests and boost their businesses profits. Being involved, seeing the ideas come to life, and take action has inspired me to stretch past my comfort zone and want to become a more creative individual.
Professionalism is always a significant strength to possess not only in life, but in the world of business. Sarah has taught me it is not only important to look professional, but she has pointed out how body language, eye contact, and how you speak and carry yourself as a person is also key to being successful. I have found myself applying these lessons in everyday life which I have confidence in has led to a great opportunity for me.
Recently, I was approached at my part-time job by a woman who offered me a great position at her company, Penske Truck Rental. She was impressed by my professionalism, customer service, and ability to communicate well which allowed her to be so open and offer a great career path for me. I believe the skills I have learned through Lionfish assisted me in establishing this chance to join a great company which I know I can further develop a career with after college.
My period here at Lionfish Advertising has been extremely positive and a life changing turning point. I can honestly say I have accomplished many personal goals during this internship. I am truly appreciative of what Lionfish has given me. Most of all I am forever grateful for Sarah’s strong leadership and mentorship throughout my journey as intern. I feel confident the skills and knowledge I have gained through this experience will be a large reason for my future success and achievements.“
