ROI Media: The Agency Behind the Magazine

ROI Media

We opened our doors with one intent;

To assist government, businesses and organizations in getting their campaign messages seen and heard.

Since its inception, ROI Media has been recognized as one of the unsurpassed full service marketing, advertising, publishing, design and public relations firms in Southwest Florida. We have received many nationwide awards, not just for ourselves, but clients we work with as well. We have played an intricate role helping hundreds of businesses, governmental departments and non-profit organizations in their marketing efforts. Although ROI Media works with many worldwide organizations and businesses, we have a commitment to the area that we call home.

We have maintained a commitment to providing the residents of Southwest Florida with information, entertainment and opportunities to increase the scope of their own endeavors. As such, we established North Port Magazine and Boca Grande Magazine, as a means of connecting these organizations and businesses with their desired colleagues and potential consumers.

ROI Media has been leading the Southwest Florida region with the creation of print and digital publications. Publisher, Adam Bartolotta, has personally published over 300 magazines since 2001. ROI Media is in constant communication with the government and residents of Southwest Florida and connects with them via their print publications as well as their interactive online and mobile editions.

Our firm has worked with over 1,000 different businesses in almost every kind of industry, such as travel & tourism, non-profit organizations, health care, education, construction, hotels & restaurants, technology, “green” businesses, real estate, retail, spa/salon and more.

We have experience in the creation of company branding and identity development, public relations, strategic marketing plans, web site and mobile development and management, full scale printing services, graphic design, direct mail campaigns, video and audio production, multimedia production, presentation development, publishing, packaging design, budget organization and media placement.

The staff of ROI Media consists of 7 highly creative individuals who have called this area home for a combined total of over 100 years. Our team is highly aware of what makes this area a desirable destination for visitors, businesses and residents.  Our agency and all the employees remain committed to building a sense of pride in the area, focusing its creative and marketing efforts on the positive aspects of the community.
