Its really good to have an industry expert who will get on the phone with you and make big-picture sense without losing sight of the details. I use them to make sure there are no hidden pitfalls in any move were about to make theyve been very, very helpful.

Greg Jones really knows where the leverage points are in publishing. Ive worked with him on several strategic projects, things like business plan development, modeling, ad sales, and just about everything else that relates to the health and success of a publication. Hes very strong when it comes to overall publishing economics and hes a master at using modeling tools.

Over the last year Sage converted more than 150 publications to a new fulfillment system. We literally could not have accomplished the fulfillment conversion and the setup of our new advertising department without the help of Mike Pickett. Mike, thanks so much on behalf of Sage and personally for your help. Its been great having you work with us here at Sage.

Ive found Granite Bay Media to be extremely well-connected in the publishing industry. When we hired them to help us with a recent magazine readership study, I was impressed with how focused and deeply involved they were in the project. With their help, we accomplished every goal we set for ourselves and got it done quickly. Their commitment was just great. They really had a profound impact on our success.

Greg Jones is a very bright guy, and he does wonderful work. He is particularly good at finding buyers for the subscriber lists of magazines that have been forced, for whatever reason, to discontinue publishing. This is an extremely valuable service and he is unique in his experience and expertise. He has put together so many of these deals that he knows the ins and outs better than anyone in the industry. He knows the audit implications, understands what needs to be negotiated, and has great contacts among the people who are actively buying and selling subscriber lists. He has a great reputation because he has always dealt effectively and honorably with everyone concerned.

Greg and I first worked together in 1997, reinitializing a Lighthouse Model. The foundation he helped me build was so strong that I was still using it five years later in 2002. When it was finally time to reload, I called Greg again. Heres what really astounded me on a file of about 400,000, the new model we built balanced to within 16 copies of the actual main label run! 16 copies! I would have been satisfied to come within a few thousand.
