Joe Neal

"Before I established Neal & Associates, I owned and operated a major appliance and electronics wholesale distribution company in Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, dealing with factories, meeting payrolls, and assisting over 200 retailers with advertising/selling our products.

We know what you deal with. 

I saw the need for an ad agency that would actually work for the client, getting results while saving the client time and money.
