We are a Michigan based web media agency that has hand picked a great group of individuals to create our talented team. Appletree MediaWorks is also proud to be a Union company that is a member in the Graphic Communications Conference/International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union (G.C.C./I.B.T.).
We believe that your online and print marketing efforts should help your business grow, not just be money spent with no return on investment. As the economy becomes tighter, competitive pressures tend to increase and every dollar spent has to hold accountability in support of moving your business forward. That’s why we take the time to get to know your business and determine how to help your sales grow.
Our team is also focused on customer service – that’s why we’ve developed our referral program. We truly believe that you will be happy with our services and should get paid for spreading the word about Appletree MediaWorks.
