What Clients Say About Our Services…

“I have been a Warm Thoughts client for 20 years. They handle every aspect of our company’s marketing strategy — print, web, social media, vehicle design, advertising, direct mail. They have an unmatched knowledge of our business. They have a great team, and do a terrific job of bringing new ideas to our company, and executing for us. I would highly recommend Warm Thoughts to anyone in the heating oil, propane or HVAC business.”
– David O’Connell, Wilson Oil & Propane


“Warm Thoughts has been a great partner for all of our marketing efforts. They’ve rebuilt three websites for us, all of which we’ve seen a wonderful improvement on. They’ve composed successful direct mail campaigns, email marketing campaigns, digital campaigns, and have provided countless hours of superb consulting support. As one of the largest suppliers of fuel oil and propane in our area, while also maintaining several smaller, separate COD oil companies, we have worked with them on small and large projects, all of which have been completed to our satisfaction. Richard has tons of industry advice and overall knowledge to share, and Michele our account supervisor is always helpful and timely. Warm Thoughts is a great company to work with, staffed with good people who produce excellent results.”
– Rick Bottini, president, Bottini Fuel, Wappingers Falls, NY


“We have worked with Warm Thoughts Communications for more than 10 years. The custom newsletters they create for us have been an excellent vehicle to communicate with our customers, increase sales and develop loyalty. Their expert development and management of our website has allowed us to concentrate our efforts on other aspects of our business. They handle our reputation management online, and new customers frequently mention the online reviews as the primary reason our customers contacted us. Rich Goldberg, Michele Asfalg and the entire team at Warm Thoughts understands our marketing needs and have been an instrumental part of the growth of our business in the past decade.”
– Jeff Jennings, president, Jennings Oil, Danbury, CT


“I really like our new website…it’s awesome! The mobile is just plain great! The picture is not overwhelming and our name and phone number just pop. Thank you so much for all of your effort in getting our new site built and launched. We definitely made the right decision when we chose Warm Thoughts as our online marketing partner.”
– Scott Majka, president, Jos. A. Majka and Sons, Inc., Clifton, NJ


“We love working with you guys! You make it so easy to create and publish our customer newsletter. But more importantly, our customers love receiving our newsletter. As you know, we had stopped producing one for a few years, but we realized we had made a mistake when customers started calling us and asking why we weren’t sending it out anymore. Not only have we gotten excellent feedback from our customers, but we’ve sold products because of it. It’s been a strong lead generator for us and the sales we generate more than cover the cost to create the newsletter. Thanks for all that you do!”
– Wanda Niedbala, Medway Oil & Propane, Medway, MA


“Thanks for all of your hard work running the FMA member customer service and sales training sessions. The attendance was strong and the feedback very positive. The advice you offered to the customer retention challenge we face today was on point and attendees could readily implement in their operations the next day. It was also great to be able to take the successes of our North Jersey experience and expand it into South Jersey. Overall, we are quite pleased with the results and feel that this engagement has been a great investment of our training dollars.”
— Eric DeGesero, Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey


“Warm Thoughts completed our website refresh at the beginning of 2017 and we could not be happier with the end result! The updated site incorporates everything we requested and is now mobile friendly. Warm Thoughts was able to update the site without drastically changing the overall messaging and spirit of the site, which was very important to us. The team was very responsive to our needs and gave us ample opportunities to review and make changes. Their web experts provided great recommendations for what could be added or changed to improve the site. Even going live was a painless process! Our new website, as it presents a much better image of our company and has brought us up to date with the latest in web design. We are thrilled!”
– Brian Green, business development manager, Green’s Blue Flame Gas Co., Houston, TX


“We have chosen to work with Warm Thoughts for the better part of 20 years. Warm Thoughts has always been ahead of the curve and we have found the communication between us and our customers to be informative and rewarding. Michele, our account manager has been very responsive and helpful with different ideas, comments, marketing and promotions we have initiated. She understands our challenges and adjusts to our changing needs. All in all, working with Warm Thoughts has been one of our best decisions.”
– Jim Sullivan, president, J.J. Sullivan Oil and Propane, Inc., Guilford, CT


“Ever since we moved our online marketing support to Warm Thoughts, we have seen a drastic increase in website traffic which has resulted in an uptick of online client submission requests. The team at Warm Thoughts, especially our Digital Account Executive Sara, has been an absolute joy to work with. Their attention to our small and large website tweaks are always dealt professionally and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend and refer their services to any company in the energy sector, as we have been a very satisfied client for years and look forward to growing our relationship in the future.”
– Dan Giasson, Maxquip, Calgary, Canada


“I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your recent presentations to our Customer Service Team. Both morning and afternoon sessions were well received by the attendees.

They keep our website fresh and up to date, they write interesting blog posts that drive more traffic to our site, and they measure everything they do. I love that part of their process is to have a quarterly meeting with me to review performance, make recommendations for improvements, and share online trends for us to consider incorporating into our marketing.”

“When NCPGA needed an expert in social media and marketing, the clear choice for us was Warm Thoughts. They have been creative, professional and above all have given us measurable results for our investment. The hardest for an association to do when it spends money on marketing is to prove that it made a difference. I can confidently say that when it comes to the work that Warm Thoughts has done for us in North Carolina, it has made a SIGNIFICANT difference.”
– John Jessup, president, North Carolina Propane Gas Association, NC


“We’ve worked with Warm Thoughts for years. They handle our customer newsletters and our online marketing. Our newsletters have been a great reminder about what Needham provides, and it keeps the Needham brand on the top of their minds!

– Erinn Woodcock, president, Needham Oil & Air, Needham, MA


“I would highly recommend Ed’s training and consulting services. Over several months, he made a real contribution to the growth of our CSR and Sales team.

His focus on our core mission of adding new customers, hanging on to existing ones and upselling our service offerings is right on target.”
— Christopher Walton, Clyde S. Walton, Inc., Lansdale, PA


“Our breakthrough group has been unbelievably helpful. I can pick up the phone and call any of the guys, and there’s always someone who has had some experience with the issue I’m confronting. The brainstorming is phenomenal, and Rich does a great job of creating an atmosphere that supports us being open and helpful.”
— Craig Snyder, Bantom Wesson Energy, Waterbury, CT


“Everyone at Warm Thoughts was really patient and explained things to either myself or my boss. We spoke almost weekly so that everything that we wanted in our website was just the way we wanted it. I am very proud of the work that is now being presented to the public. It looks wonderful and all the hard work is very much appreciated.”
– Core Fuels


“When I first sat in your office to discuss our program, you told me what you wanted to change the strategy you wanted to implement, and I thought you guys were crazy.

— Roy Rucci, Rucci Oil Co., Staten Island, NY
