Client Comment

“We were introduced to Straight Marketing at the start of 2012 to assist us with marketing strategy. We are a rapidly expanding business but lacked the experience in marketing and so needed assistance with formulating a strategy and implementing the plans. Straight Marketing provided a thorough marketing plan including lots of ideas for growth into new market sectors. Straight Marketing also worked with us for six months to implement the plans. They assisted us with a complete re-branding exercise, writing a new website, tendering for contracts and marketing campaigns. Their strengths are their knowledge of the professional sectors, their eye for detail and their copy writing skills.“
