About Tim

I have been intrigued by advertising and marketing since I was a kid. I have always loved the commercials on the radio and television. I can still remember corporate slogans, jingles and national campaigns that were on the air when I was in grade school.

Why Results Focus?

As it says above…I developed this page and an extension of what I do every day…giving my clients better RESULTS by putting the right FOCUS on their marketing! My Job is to Create Customers for advertising businesses and I do that by helping them understand the marketing process.

I originally put together this site over 10 years ago as an online newsletter for clients! A way to reach out and give you ideas on how to make your advertising work better for you… a way to help you get the RESULTS you want with your marketing and give you the best ideas on how to get you there!

Today with the help of people that know a LOT more about technology than I do, I have created a more interactive way to do to that! Take a look around! Let me know what you like! Let me know what you want to see more of! Tell me about your marketing and advertising! Your challenges! Your successes! Ask me questions!

He is willing to start small and help a business grow into a good client for his stations.

Tim is not in his chosen business for a quick buck. He, refreshingly, understands that if he helps businesses succeed in a small way, that their success will drive his. He is willing to start small and help a business grow into a good client for his stations. So many advertising people push to sell what will make them the most money now - even if they know it isn’t the most effective thing for the client and may bury them financially. Bad advertising and poorly conceived plans are simply extra bills to the advertiser. Advertising that is well planned and properly executed is an investment that pays back many times over and Tim understands this. I think that makes him very trustworthy in a field often occupied by hucksters and con men. Tim - you are no Herb Tarlek!! And I mean that sincerely. Keep up the good work!

He knows his job like the back of his hand and he’s one of the, if not THE, best in his field.

There isn’t enough room to list all of the benefits that come from working with a professional like Tim. If every manager had an employee like him at their side, their jobs would be much easier. I have total confidence that Tim absolutely knows what he’s talking about. With all the other work-related responsibilities I have, it’s nice to know I can depend on Tim to always provide me with the best ads possible with little effort on my part. He never fails to promote McElroy’s with the best advertising available. He knows his job like the back of his hand and he’s one of the, if not THE, best in his field.

Anyone getting Tim for an AE is really fortunate – he is a real advocate for his accounts.

Tim Kolling had been our radio rep for four stations in Salina, Kansas for several years.  I can honestly say he is one of the best reps I have ever worked with!  I have been negotiating spot radio and television contracts for more than 15 years and he is a superb rep.  What makes Tim different?  The phrase, “I am a partner with your business,” is mere lip service from most sales people.  Tim worked hard to know my client’s business; regularly visiting the store, keeping me apprised of market conditions/changes, making sure we were a “first call” for interesting and inventive station promotions, and finally, I have lived/worked in several cities since starting my relationship with Tim and he was VERY conscientious about staying in close contact with me – not always the easiest of jobs.  Anyone getting Tim for an AE is really fortunate – he is a real advocate for his accounts.

He always came prepared with new ideas and promotions to increase our sales.

In a fast-paced business environment, I have learned that it is very important to be able to depend on and trust business associates.  Our business has known Tim for just over four years.  We have always bragged to other business owners about Tim’s ability and skill handling our advertising.  I have owned businesses in three different markets, and have yet to find someone that operates as effectively under his or her own volition as Tim.  Every time Tim came to our business we felt as if we were his only clients.  He always came prepared with new ideas and promotions to increase our sales.  As franchisees of a national chain, we were able to extend Tim’s ideas and creativity to benefit hundreds of other business owners.  We have always appreciated Tim’s professionalism and will continue to brag to other business owners about how good this guy is no matter what he does.
