Jay Nicholson was struck with the advertising bug early in life. At age 18, his mentor shared his wisdom that “the advertising battle is won or lost in the field of creative messages”. These wise words were imparted by the owner of one of the largest ad agencies in the Midwest. Jay was touched by this guidance and quickly enveloped the mantra into his professional activities. Many years and more than 500 awards later, Jay continues to provide the best creative product available, and supplements his craft with a wide range of marketing options. For more than thirty years, The Nicholson Agency has provided exemplary service for a wide range of clients. This diversity has set TNA apart from other advertising agencies. The astute leadership never backs down from a challenge. The creative juices seem to flow faster with variety. The Nicholson Agency takes pride in listening to clients; offering careful consultation and delivery beyond expectations. If your advertising is not competing, choose a company that cares enough to help you WIN!

The team at The Nicholson Agency offers award winning creative: advertising, marketing, social/traditional media strategies, and public relations.

Jay is a rarity in the world of advertising. His creative nature allows him to ascertain a project and engage in detailed conversation with a client, then design the song, written word or thought that meets and exceeds the project's guidelines. His experience with all aspects of advertising makes him the type of ad guru that can bring any client success.

I had the great pleasure of working with Jay on a printed brochure for Hickory Hills Country Club. During our first meeting I knew this was going to end as a spectacular brochure. With Jay's keen awareness of our need and his superior knowledge of his industry, Hickory Hills was rewarded with a first rate high quality brochure. I wish there was another project I could use Jay for! Truly professional, deeply passionate and an a great pleasure to work with!

I can say without reservation that Jay is a unique talent. Too often Ad Agents or Agencies just want to place media, and while helpful, isn't a unique talent. Jay finds the words, the images -- indeed the MESSAGE to place IN the media and that's what makes it work. Money well spent is never wasted and no one has ever wasted a dime with Jay.
