Client Testimonials

“I have had the pleasure of knowing the Ogg family for over 35 years and they are not only great friends of mine, but of the travel industry. The Ogg’s are genuinely invested in the success of travel businesses and the entire travel agent community. At Avoya Travel, we have had a marketing partnership with Ogg Media Group for over seven years and we couldn’t be happier with the success we’ve had. The level of customer service and professionalism that we receive from both Joanie and Tom are truly superb. Most recently, we have been utilizing a wide range of Ogg Media’s E-Marketing services and the direct results of these campaigns have helped our business grow. From our experience working with the Ogg family and Ogg Media Group, we highly recommend them as a marketing partner.”

“I was very pleased with the attendance for my webinar with Travel Professional NEWS.   We had well over 200 registrants and over 100 agents joined.  While that in itself is amazing, the follow up from Travel Professional NEWS was particularly impressive.

I was sent a list of all the agents names and e-mail addresses who had registered and I could sort it by who attended and who did not.  They even shared with me what TIME they got on and off the call!

They listed all of the questions that we received during the webinar;  fifty in all.    I did follow up via e-mail with everyone on the list – whether they were on the call or not, and it has been a great catalyst to start new conversations and build new relationships with travel partners I may not have found otherwise!    I would highly recommend Travel Professional NEWS!”

“Passport Online has been working with Ogg Marketing for the past 5 years and it has resulted in an excellent return on investment for us. They have developed an engaged and active community of agents. The agents they attract are qualified and we have benefited from that in sales of our website and social media products. The variety of marketing opportunities is key for us and we participate in all of them… articles, community chats, email marketing and webinars. I appreciate the experience and professionalism of the team and am happy to call Joanie and Tom, and now Andy as well, friends as well as industry colleagues.”

“ has had a relationship with Joanie and Tom Ogg in a professional capacity for nearly a decade.  Most testimonials cite a wonderful partnership, excellent performance, and unparalleled value when espousing an exceptional working relationship with a business partner.  For me, this all goes without saying when speaking of my history with the Oggs.  I would, however, like to go a giant step further.  Joanie and Tom have demonstrated more than professionalism.  They have demonstrated, time and time again, their deeply nurturing nature and genuine commitment to the success of their business partners and the industry in general.  I simply cannot find the words to express my endorsement of the Oggs both as valued partners and caring individuals. is beyond grateful for the relationship we’ve enjoyed with the Oggs and the services they provide.”

“We began working with Joanie Ogg Marketing in 2010.  Her insight into the professional, independent travel consultant’s world is spot on!  The marketing initiatives she created for us were always worthwhile and very productive.

Joanie Ogg is a delight to work with and we look forward to a relationship for years to come with the new Ogg Marketing Group.”

“Andy and the Ogg Marketing team have been excellent to work with.  They are easy to work with and very responsive to all of our needs.  Most of all, the quality of agents that we reach through our efforts with Ogg are second to  none.  We are passionate about teaching agents the ins and outs of Faith Based Travel and OMG has provided an excellent venue for us to do so.  Web traffic, agent inquiries, quotes, bookings and profits are all up since we started working with Andy and family. Thanks guys!”
