Marketing

Kieren Parton, One Life Medical

"Originally known as Capalaba Surgery we were relocating to Alexandra Hills. We wanted to create an authentic brand that would bring our vision for our business to life. In addition, we wanted to make sure that our image conveyed our brand story in a professional, consistent way through a visual story and key messages. Sustainable Marketing Services helped us discover our natural brand story.

They helped us get an understanding of what makes us unique and made recommendations on how to bring this story to life across everything from the design of our surgery with feature walls and furnishings right through to business cards, appointment cards and magnets.

They even organised a feature wall and signage for us. We worked together to develop a new company name.

We are delighted with our new brand, our team loves the design, and we believe our patients will feel more welcome and comfortable when they come to see us. Some of our patients have already said that they love the name and the logo is very soft and friendly. We feel that Sustainable Marketing Services' step-by-step system made the whole rebranding experience less daunting for us, given that we have no marketing backgrounds. They helped us understand our patient base and where we would like to take the business in the future.

We found the team at Sustainable Marketing Services wonderful to work with and they always kept us abreast of where we were in the process. We found the personalised service was fantastic and allowed us the freedom to work one-on-one with the person creating our vision."

Andrew Blair, Bella Manufacturing

“My business was facing some particularly difficult circumstances in late 2014 and we were lacking direction and a plan with the best way to move forward.

I had several meetings with Sustainable Marketing Services to develop a plan and help us to improve the performance of our website. I left each meeting feeling inspired and confident in their advice and experience.

My business is now growing with solid strength and I attribute our success to their expertise with our marketing success.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend the Sustainable Marketing Services team to anybody looking to grow their business and effectively market products and / or services.”

Allison Dunn, My Life Support Services

“I first enlisted Sustainable Marketing Services’ help with our organisation in mid-2013. At the time we were a small organisation looking to become more sustainable for the long term and to become more visible within the Brisbane community. Maria and her team worked closely with us to establish goals, recognise and highlight our strengths and develop our brand. With the help of Maria and her team we managed to increase our visibility, have a clear understanding of our future direction and set some realistic targets.

Sustainable Marketing Services has assisted us to increase our organisational size by 60% in the last 12 months and we are continuing to grow at a steady rate. Maria is always keeping me up-to-date with any upcoming networking events or opportunities, which are of benefit to our organisation.

Not only have we achieved all set targets and more, but we have gained the extra benefit of having Sustainable Marketing Services on our side, which has helped us to better understand our clients and outline achievable goals. The continuous mentoring that Maria has provided us goes above and beyond what was expected. We will continue to use Sustainable Marketing Services into the future.”

Michael Tyrrell, Managing Director, Bainbridge Technologies

“What a pleasure it is to engage a company that wants to know and learn how your business operates. Sustainable Marketing Services helps you look inside your company so you can assess your direction and determine how you can grow, change and enhance your business. Matching business goals with marketing goals gives strength to your company moving forward.

To put it simply we are heading down the same road to the same location.

Sustainable Marketing Services is considerably different than a PR or marketing agency. The managing director is an experienced professional with wonderful creative ideas balanced with business acumen.

Whilst you may outsource this section of your business, this particular company makes you feel it is part of your internal structure. This gives you confidence in decision-making processes along the marketing journey.”

Don Kraushaar, Vital Light

“To the team at Sustainable Marketing Services. I want to mention that from the moment I met Maria Anderson from Sustainable Marketing Services which was at the QWESTnet Marketing Workshop early this year in Brisbane I found her very obliging to assist to the point that we missed the course by several hours and Maria gave us the time after the course to catch up and understand what we missed and all this after she had completed her day and all this for no charge.

So much so I felt that this was the person for our company and also because like Vital Light products we are adding to our collection of Sustainable Marketing Services people.

When building a new company around sustainable products you must acquire people who are congruent to what your about; a care for our current and future place on planet; a free flowing attitude and a no hurry and trusting approach.

Hence the reason for choosing Sustainable Marketing Services for our valued company to assist us in sales and marketing and to add us to aim for the high quality of companies and people for us to do business with.”

Alan Smith, Director, FutureGen

“FutureGen was originally conceived as designers and installers of solar and other renewable energy solutions. Sustainable Marketing Services helped discover a sustainable brand positioning to help FutureGen build a long-term business. They helped us identify the best performing marketing activities for our business so we can achieve more growth using less resources. We are now working together to execute the implementation of the marketing growth strategy.

One of the things we liked about Sustainable Marketing Services was that they looked beyond our initial service offering and into our wider skill set. The result is not only a better defined marketing strategy, but also a better defined business which is now much more aligned with both our professional and industry accreditations.”

Mark Powell, Nutra Organics

"We were a small family company that manufacture and wholesale premium superfood formulations in the health industry.

We were well positioned and ready to aggressively grow our business. I believe one of the most difficult aspects of business is getting your ideas working for you in the market place.

Sustainable Marketing Services did just that for us. As well as taking the time to understand us as the people that make up the business and working with our different needs, Sustainable Marketing Services brought clarity and focus to our ideas.

They brought with them consistency of branding and solutions for our problems.

I believe the difference with Sustainable Marketing Services is they really want the business to succeed. I feel now after working with Sustainable Marketing Services that we have a plan that is already starting to unfold, and that our ideas are coming to life! Direction is so important - so not only do we have the tools to grow our business, we know where we are going and how we are going to get there.

I would absolutely recommend the Sustainable Marketing Services team to companies looking for a simple, effective, time efficient marketing solution‘."

Rory Stainton, Managing director, Geobrick Pty Ltd

“I‘m one of those guys who knew I had a good idea, knew I had the ability to manufacture the product, and also knew that it would rely on good marketing if it were to be successful to which I had absolutely no idea of how to go about it.

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.

That was until I was lucky enough to meet Maria. It‘s obvious to me now, but not at first, that Maria not only has a vast knowledge of marketing and a great amount of experience, but also has a ‘feel‘ for the person and the product she‘s dealing with.

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."
