Client Testimonials

Brett Coupland, Chief Operations Officer, Hang Gliding Federation of Australia

“Sustainable Marketing Services has helped us think more strategically about marketing. Their expertise in understanding the marketing of air sports, hang gliding and our members, means that Maria and her team are able to direct our focus to the right activities that perform better-  overall it means we get a better ROI.

During the time that Sustainable Marketing Services has worked with us, I’ve seen the professionalism of our brand improve.  The profile of our brand as a safe sport is also increasing. 

Our members have complimented us on our new, professional website, which brings the thrill of pure flight to life.  The website adds considerable value to our members with tools and information to help them get the most out of their sport, safely.

At all times, I can now get on with doing my job as the Chief Operations Officer, knowing that I have an expert marketing team focused on elevating our sport, growing and retaining our membership.

I like the fact that I know they are committed to continually improving their marketing expertise by making improvements to our marketing strategy, ensuring we have a leading edge and stay at the top of our game.

Importantly, they understand that we are a NFP and that we need to be prudent with our members’ money.  Maria and her team stick to the allocated budget and come up with creative ways to make sure our money goes further.

Even more important, the team are dedicated, committed to getting us the best results, are a great bunch of people, and act with integrity and honesty.  We would recommend Sustainable Marketing Services to other organisations.”

Doug Gray, Garwoods Earthmoving

“Sustainable Marketing Services brought Garwoods’ brand and competitive advantages to life! Now our clients recognise us by our eye-catching visual identity, and they know our service offerings and strengths through our professional corporate brochure and website.

By taking the time to really get to know our business and our people, Maria Anderson and her team helped us clarify not only our goals, but also our strengths.

They then used their insights to develop a branding strategy that positions us where we want to be in our market.

Sustainable Marketing Services identified and harnessed our main competitive advantage – safety – and used it to create a strong visual identity that has helped us “own” the safety category in our industry. Maria helped us integrate the branding across all marketing mediums, including our business cards, our corporate brochure, our website and even our staff clothing. Now all our customers, suppliers and partners recognise us when they see us!

Our customers love the corporate brochure and website Sustainable Marketing Services has created for us. The balance of facts and figures that support our strengths, the imagery and photos that bring our team to life, and the strong copy that clearly communicates our benefits, is a winning combination.

Thank-you, Maria and team. Your marketing insights, strategy development and implementation have significantly moved us forward. I would be pleased to recommend you to any business that knows where it wants to go, but doesn’t know how to get there. You make it easy.”

Robert Briggs, CTEK

CTEK Sweden AB
Australia & New Zealand PR & Marketing.

Over the past 6 years CTEK would like to thank you for your outstanding work in the Public Relation & Marketing within the Australian and New Zealand.

Since you started working for CTEK the contribution that Sustainable Marketing Services have made in raising awareness of the CTEK brand and our products, particularly in the areas of DC-DC on-board charging and the professional workshop has been outstanding, this has led to CTEK becoming the number one Battery Charger brand in both Australia and New Zealand.

Your marketing and PR work has been a major factor in increasing our sales in both countries year on year.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your services over the past six years and wish you all the best for the future.

Yours sincerely

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.”

Kevin Dodd, Model Aeronautical Association of Australia (MAAA)

“To meet our expectations I found it was desirable for Sustainable Marketing Services and MAAA to become ‘part of a team’. In achieving this, they have focused on our goals and created the marketing strategy we need to achieve our objectives. In a short period of time our organisation has increased member retention and strengthened our relationship with members through more communication channels. Close to 20% of our members completed our recent member survey, which provided valuable insight for our future direction. I would recommend the team from Sustainable Marketing Services if you are looking at moving your organisation forward with reliable results.”
