Al J. Marschke
I’m originally from Erie, Pennsylvania and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Gannon University in 1987. I started my professional career in television at WJET in Erie in 1985, while in college. In 1988, I moved to Pittsburgh to work at WTAE-TV as the technical director for the evening news and production editor.
In 1996 I created BluMars Media, a company specializing in content creation and marketing. The idea was to cut out the middleman and make production more affordable with the same type of talent. I have a lot of highly skilled contacts that are independent and strive for making our clients happy. They need to. They are only as good as their last job. There are no salaries in our world. Big production companies have big, hungry staffs which are not always needed and can over-complicate the production process. Raising costs unnecessarily. We can be as big as needed. Our size is project based.As my client base grew they demanded more advice and counsel for more competitive marketing ideas. So on a regular basis I hunt for cutting edge technology that will give me and my clients an advantage. I cannot stand not having some kind of advantage. I will find it. It’s out there. In 2018 I discovered Demand Insight. A state of the art tech company built around making B2B companies more profitable by filling pipelines with quality leads. After months of research and comparing them to other platforms I decided to represent their services. Their technology is getting results that no one else has been able to duplicate.
I am committed to growing with my clients. My clients do what they do best and I find better and more productive ways for all of us to have an edge over our competition.
I live in Franklin Park, 10 minutes north of downtown Pittsburgh, with my wife Alison and daughter, Caroline.
