Testimonials

  • I have 7 articles publishing this week due to my association with POMA. Not to mention the numerous business opportunities from people that I have met. Just last week a company that I wanted to do some business with automatically jumped on board when he heard that I was a POMA member. I can't even begin to tell you how much business I did just this week due to my POMA connections.

  • Like many POMA members, I wear a variety of hats. Part TV production, part public relations, part freelance writer, my job varies and I go where the day takes me. The associations I build, the contacts I make and the information I learn at POMA's Summer Business Conference helps me every step of the way.... Read More
    Kevin Tate Creative Director, Mossy Oak Productions, Part-time Freelance Writer, Barbecue Grill Assembler and Flyswatter Salesman
  • POMA is a money maker! A casual conversation at the POMA business conference turned into a friendship, and almost immediately, into a lucrative business deal for Gun Talk Media. In business, it's often about the contacts, and POMA provides quality contacts.
    Tom Gresham Gun Talk Media
  • Two months after going full time as a writer I joined POMA and attended their convention in Ogden. POMA has helped me make a lot of good contacts, writing and Pro-staff deals. I don’t see how you can go wrong by joining. If you want to write part-time, it will make you a better writer. If you want to go full-time, you’ll make more contacts.... Read More

  • After admiring Rockhouse Motion's work for a while, Ian connected with Aaron, and after exchanging emails and chatting on the phone, they realized they have the same work ethic: Work hard and long, cut out all the BS, and produce a premium product.... Read More

  • POMA provides incredible opportunities, far exceeding any expectations I had for being a POMA member. POMA Money Line listings provide room to spawn new thinking, expand opportunities, explore life in a new facility or role, just great!  Keep up the great work!
    David Barus Freelance Writer
  • For years I avoided joining the professional writer’s organizations in favor of an independent approach to networking and relationship building. That worked well for a while, but then I hit a plateau.  During that time I joined several writer's and media organizations.... Read More
    Tom Keer Freelance Writer/The Keer Group
  • As a full-time freelance magazine writer and book author I spend a lot of time alone - in the office, traveling and in remote locations. POMA through its Briefs, Business Conference and webinars offers me a very valuable means of staying in communications/networking with others in my field.... Read More
    J. Wayne Fears Freelance Communicator
  • Just a few weeks after the conference, with one project, I was able to generate coverage for six POMA Corporate Partners. And, with the participation of those partners, I was able to write a much more rich and interesting review.... Read More

  • Well, that didn’t take long. I just sent in my dues payment and I’ve already seen a 400 percent return on the investment thanks to a tip from the Money Line. Thank you POMA!!!!!!
