Chris and his team at Impact Marketing are a top-notch group that get results. When we weren't getting results from other vendors, we called Chris, and his team helped us bridge the transisition without missing a beat. They are selling so many orders I am actually having to slow them down, which is never a bad thing in our business. His orders are always high-quality, and we are happy with the relationship that we have established.

Chris is a top professional in his field and I can highly recommend him. He is maybe the leading authority in the area of Sunday select programs in the country. 
He is accomplished in several areas and if growing your market is important I suggest you put his team to work for you. 
When you use his company you get his expertise in several areas not just telemarketing. 
He is a hard working family man that will exceed your expectations.

Chris can sell, period. I could stop with that sentence, but to elaborate, the orders that he brings our company are very accurate with an unprecedented low rate of charge-backs. He negotiates a fair price for services rendered and has produced excellent results for our company. Week after week I am impressed with the number and quality of sales he and his staff have brought us. I am 110% pleased with his work for us and would highly recommend his services.

Chris was my manager during a six month internship while attending Chico State.
