“I have known Joe Hines since 2012. Our first connection was at a local International Management Consulting meeting in Los Angeles. Shortly after we met for lunch. Since that time our relationship has grown to where Word4Asia Consulting has retained Joe/A Cubed Marketing on a routine basis for years.
A Cubed has served us by:
- Developing key/strategic marketing pieces
- Overseeing our website and LinkedIn platform
- Written monthly promotional and marketing articles for various applications
- Caring for our IT needs as requested
The work of W4A is uniquely sensitive and requires we work with someone who will listen to who our target audience is and help us avoid any pictures, words or implications which may be permanently damaging. Joe is the right person for us.
Too often in marketing experts adopt a one style fits all mindset. In our case we needed someone to be a great listener and understand what we need and what we absolutely cannot/should not do. Joe/A Cubed is what we need.
Joe is also a man of superb character. We trust him with our office, keys and IPR.
We have also found him to be fair and honest with his invoices. We recommend Joe Hines to you.

“I cannot say enough about Joe’s ability to run a branding workshop for our chain of children’s fine art studios. After two thorough and thoughtful rounds focus groups which led us to pinpoint targeted survey questions to our greater client base, Joe led my staff through an efficient, extremely meaningful and downright inspiring branding workshop, which completely distilled and intensified the way we as a team see our business internally.
I cannot believe how, in a few short hours, Joe managed to dig to the heart of what, why and how we do what we do. He led us in creating a revised, condensed, much improved mission statement, a completely inspiring vision statement, a written set of internal values, a tangible sense of our brand personality, and an overall branding message to send to the public. We even lighted on an amazing tag line through this process. Now we are all set to revamp our website making every decision from content to colors, photos to fonts, consciously and confidently going forward. I am VERY excited about our future as a company now, and am truly grateful to Joe.”
