What does it mean to Gift-a-Dream to a student?
When you gift to a student, the support you render is not just a financial transaction. Instead, your gift offers them hope for a brighter future. Support their essentials so they can focus on fulfilling their potential!

Frequently asked questions
Are you guys expensive?
Heck no! Actually, we're pretty damn affordable. Our pricing is based on what a private coach charges for a lesson at most facilities. That's why we named the company "small ball media group," and not "GRAND SLAM MEDIA."
What big brand experience do you guys have?
Nike, MLB, Interscope Records to name a few. Mark, the guy that started the company, did retail marketing for two powerhouse brands, Nike and VIrgin Media. Prior to that, he worked at Saks 5th Avenue, so add a dash of luxury marketing and you get our vibe.
Do you guys really only do baseball marketing?
100% yes! We LOVE the game. We watch MLB channel in the off-season, have Jaeger bands bolted to the wall in our office and still play & coach. We have worked in baseball facilities with nasty breakrooms and bad parking and still have ZERO desire to market dry cleaners or dentists.
We're not in Jersey. How's this going to work?
Great question! Simple answer - kinda like the way we work for our NY/NJ clients. We chat on the phone, use Facetime and Skype. After our initial strategy session, we'll ask you to take a few pictures, shoot some video and park it on a shared drive. We can take it from there or you can be more involved.
Why aren't you guys right for all companies?
We're not for everyone. We specialize in small to mid-sized companies. If you are a big brand or a large corporation, we might not be the best fit for you. If we can help, we'll be honest. If not, we know a lot of agency people in large NYC shops that can scale to your size.
Do you guys talk like Tony Soprano?
No, why yuse guys keep askin' us dat??? While we live and work in North Jersey near all things Soprano's including Holstein's Ice Cream (where series' final scene was shot), Mark is actually from Maryland. He grew up on a farm outside of Baltimore, loves the Orioles and occaisionally will bust out a very Baltimore-y "Oh yeah hun." Call him and ask him to do it for you. No, seriously call him and make him talk like that.
What if I want to do all of my own Social Media Marketing?
We respect that DIY spirit & can help you get going with some professional guidance!
Can I do some of the Social Media Marketing myself?
Of course - we encourage it!
Can you guys do all my Social Media Marketing for me?
Totally! When you're swamped, who has time to whip out the iPhone during a meeting, a lesson or while coaching 3rd base?
