I had the pleasure of working with Aboriginal Link in my capacity as Director of Marketing, Communications and Media Relations at WorldSkills Calgary 2009. Our mandate was to promote this international professional skills and trades competition to our primary target market of youth aged 17 to 25 across the country and around the world to encourage them to explore trades and technology training and careers.
We selected Aboriginal Link as a tactic to reach out to Aboriginal youth. It was a good fit for us: we were able to customize our reach into the Aboriginal community by selecting the types of businesses and organizations that most closely matched our target audience within our budget parameters. With the fax broadcast reach right across the country, we were able to touch youth in communities and areas we would not have connected with through any other means. And the comprehensive reporting options allowed us to track the interest shown in our messages.
All in all, we had a successful experience with Aboriginal Link and I wouldn’t hesitate to consider using the service again when our target market calls for similar demographics.
On behalf of RBC, I would like to thank Aboriginal Link for their continued support of our Aboriginal Student Awards Program (ASAP) over the last several years. Aboriginal Link has shown exemplary commitment to results, a consultative approach and deep understanding of our organizational needs. These attributes were tested when RBC decided to implement a new on-line application and tracking solution for our 2009 ASAP program.
Because of Aboriginal Link’s excellent track record with RBC, we were confident in Aboriginal Link’s ability to manage all aspects of the mail, fax and online campaigns including collection and reporting responses with the help of ResponseTrac. With Aboriginal Link’s support and guidance campaign, we doubled the number of responses and received a significantly higher number of completed applications as compared with our 2008 campaign.
I would like to especially recognize Aboriginal Link’s responsiveness in ensuring the new online application web site and its own security protocols adhered to RBC’s strict security standards and to also recognize them for the time they took to process over 400 applications on RBC behalf.
Having Aboriginal Link as our trusted partner led to a more effective 2009 ASAP campaign and better results in terms of the number of responses received. We look forward to a lasting partnership with Aboriginal Link in the years to come.
As the Divisional Director of External Relations at Algoma University, it is my role to oversee University public relations, media relations and marketing. It is in the latter discipline that I have had the pleasure of working with Aboriginal Link.
The Aboriginal Link team works very hard to ensure that our needs are addressed. They understand their clients and go above and beyond to service them.
I would recommend Aboriginal Link without reservation. I find their work, keen knowledge of this market and overall approach exemplary.
I have had the opportunity to work with Aboriginal Link for the past three years. And in particular I’m very excited about our success this past year. The whole team collaborated and worked extremely hard to ensure successful changes to our program were done effectively and within tight timelines. The transition to web-based applications forms was not an easy task but done with ease and executed accurately and efficiently. The real success comes with their passion and dedication to all that they do. This teams spirit and resilience continues to drive my own expectations of other vendors. Continue the great work that you do!
