Spanish term or phrase: siendo
Sólo de esta manera haremos que nuestra mejor propaganda siga siendo usted.
Carolina R
English translation:This is the only way to make sure that our best publicity comes from you.
Explanation:
Or "...that you continue to be our best advertisement."

I would stay away from "propaganda" as it often has a political connotation.

Actually, depending on your context, you might want to generalize it: "This is the only way to make sure that our customers continue to be our best advertisement," taking that YOU out of there.

Only this way can our best publicity continue to be you.


Explanation:
This suggestion reconfigures the sentence ever so slightly. The word "haremos" is rendered superfluous. I think this makes the sentence more readable.

Only in this way will our clients go on being our best publicity.


Explanation:
Otra opción, que pone énfasís en "only".
Por cierto, "our clients" puede ser "you", y "go on being" podría ser "continue to be".

This is the only way to keep you as our best publicity tool.


Explanation:
Most the answer are right, but advertising is a large context and one of the "tools" of it is mouth to mouth publicity from customers, and I believe that is what is implicit in the context.
