Jackson, Mich. ‐ RJM, a marketing agency based in Jackson, Michigan, was recently presented with nine prestigious advertising awards at the 2023 Marketing Communications Agency Network (MCAN) annual ceremony held on January 20, 2024, in Tampa, Florida. The awards were granted for marketing and advertising projects encompassing a variety of categories including digital advertising, email marketing, print advertising, and business‐to‐consumer campaigns.

The esteemed recognition demonstrated RJM’s diverse skill set and ability to cultivate the communities for their clients, regardless of the marketing medium leveraged. This was exemplified by the awards received for projects as diverse as Broadmead’s direct mailer campaign, Experience Jackson’s visitor brochure, and Thumb Bank’s welcome kit.

Several of their distinctions were for work completed for businesses and organizations in the Jackson area. A bronze award was received for Experience Jackson’s multi‐media marketing campaign My Perfect Day. This campaign seamlessly delivered precise messaging digitally, through mass media billboards, and a commercial that ran on YouTube and traditional TV channels was among the awards.

RJM was also honored for work done outside of the Jackson community. This included pieces created for Community Bank, based in Trenton, IL. The recognition was for a direct mail piece advertising the grand opening of a new branch and a billboard promoting their business checking product. Several accolades were received for Maryland‐based continuing care retirement community, Broadmead. This includes bronze awards for email and print marketing pieces.

Helping clients build their communities is something RJM has done for over 40 years.
