When it comes to marketing solutions, “cost-effective” and “quality” seem mutually exclusive to many small to mid-sized companies. At Naqcom, we create effective, attention-getting marketing programs that generate positive results, delivered on time and on budget.

Media Advocacy


If you are looking to advance a social, public, or corporate initiative, the strategic use of the mass media as a key resource to position your message is critical. Do you want it to rise above the mass media clutter? We thought so.

Social Media


Regardless of what type of business you are engaged in, chances are, Social Media is affecting the way you operate. Organizations should care about Social Media because it has already affected every field or industry imaginable. Are you connected?
