“It has been my experience that advertising agencies are often hired
for clever creative with a polished pitch, and are replaced for lack of results.
Our mission is defined by our name, Rainmaker.” -Don Oschwald

Don Oschwald - CEO

Don Oschwald - Rainmaker CEOOur CEO is a highly successful entrepreneur who migrated to the agency business 15 years ago after 20 years of success as a Subway franchisee and as a top level manager in the automotive industry. His intuitive ability to analyze challenges and to put forth marketing solutions is unique: in short- ‘he gets it’. Don acknowledges that advertising/marketing is typically the third largest, controllable expense for a business; he’s a recognized expert in creating effective/credible messaging, determining which media is most likely to generate the ‘biggest bang for the client’s buck’, and for negotiating the best placements online, in print, in broadcast, and within the exploding world of ‘cyber media’ for our clients.

"We recognize that there is much more to marketing than merely being clever with messaging. Successfully marketing a brand involves a thorough understanding of the client, analyzing the client’s competition, knowing what has and has not succeeded in the past (vis a vis promotions, media placements, etc), then crafting a customized plan which will meet and often exceed sales goals."
