Marketing & Promotion


Creative Enterprises Studio is pleased to partner with The Barnabas Agency to provide marketing and promotion services for authors and others. We believe Tina Jacobson and her team lead the field in providing aggressive and effective marketing strategy for both traditional and individual publishers. Their credentials speak for themselves.

Tailor-Made Campaigns

With a dynamic vision to provide each client with publicity and marketing campaigns tailor-made to his or her individual needs, Tina Jacobson established The Barnabas Agency in 1987. Since its inception, this full-service publicity, media, and consulting firm has widened its areas of expertise to include quality and innovative audio programming, as well as top-of-the-line public relations with literary representation, lecture representation, and personal management.

The team at The Barnabas Agency is creative and professional, finding intriguing angles for promotion, freshening pitches throughout the course of campaigns, and keeping our team informed with excellent reports. We’ve been impressed with the media coverage they’ve found for our novelists in their care.

The Barnabas Agency has represented me, my books and ministry with the highest enthusiasm and integrity. This group covers all the channels of media and public relations with excellence. Even more important than the results we have achieved together is the belief that Tina Jacobson and The Barnabas Agency have in me and my mission. It is truly a pleasure to have them as a big part of my team and my future.
