    “Maria worked with me on new creative and a strategic marketing plan. She took time to really understand the needs of the business and her industry and business knowledge cut the time needed to explain things. (A challenge when dealing with most agencies.) She provided practical strategic ideas to help us achieve our objectives. She was like an objective partner and brought some great concepts and ideas to refresh the marketing campaign. I would highly recommend her particularly for strategic planning."

    “We needed a consultant to deliver a half-day marketing workshop to some clients of the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM). The challenge? We needed someone who could deliver a quality, information rich and targeted workshop within a tight timeframe. We also needed someone who fitted with our Departmental values and could hold their own in a room full of technically-minded men, many of whom were marketing sceptics. Along came Maria! Maria engaged our audience and demonstrated to them the benefits good marketing can bring to any company regardless of its size or industry sector. Our clients left the workshop motivated and determined to put Maria's advice into practice. Maria's knowledge and ongoing assistance has been invaluable to us and our clients and we look forward to working with her in the future." Find out more

    “I engaged Sustainable Marketing Services when I established Evolve Property Services in 2011. At that stage I had a thought bubble of a concept, without a business name. We worked together to define the Evolve's brand story (and name) and this developed with the design of the logo, website, business consumables, etc. Maria and Lisa were professional and personable and I'm extremely satisfied with the end product. I plan to partner with Sustainable Marketing Services with the growth on my business." Read more

    “To be honest, I was scared. I thought it (marketing) was too big and too hard. I thought it was expensive and that it would be almost impossible to find someone who even cared. Marketing, I thought, was complicated at best and a hit and miss (scatter gun) approach based on my (little) experience. Maria has understood the product (and therefore the market) and very cleverly dissected the approach into little bite size pieces where all I had to do was swallow. Maria has turned my fear back into confidence. I can do this. This will work for me. I will be successful. Thank you." Read more
