Junxion Strategy is an international social impact consultancy. As a growing firm our digital marketing systems and analytics needed to be streamlined. Out-Smarts worked with us to audit our current digital landscape, developing and helping us implement systems that improve our processes and give us better access to the analytics we need to grow our business today and in the future. Smart, easy-going, and patient, Mhairi improved our team’s knowledge and capacity alongside making her recommendations. She’s a great thought partner, and Junxion is better positioned to continue our growth, due to Out-Smarts’ work.

Mike Rowlands -  President and CEO - Junxion Strategy

“Mhairi delivered clear and thorough explanations of a varietyBow Valley College Testimonial of digital marketing concepts, giving her audience concrete steps to implement and apply to their business. Her presentations were easy to follow and she mastered the ability to navigate the simultaneous roles of an online presenter – keeping her audience engaged through chat, keeping the presentation flowing smoothly, and covering the topic in a logical and step by step manner. Her charming accent was a delightful bonus!”

Jennifer Neufeld, Project Officer, Bow Valley College Entrepreneur Centres 

“Working with the Out-Smarts team helped us launch our new clinic with clear goals and directives. They spearheaded the digital strategy so we could focus on patient care inside of the clinic. Their approach was knowledgeable, tenacious, patient, professional. We highly recommend Out-Smarts to anyone looking to integrate digital marketing into their business.”

Ali Shukor, Director of Clinical Strategy, City Centre Urgent Primary Care Centre

Samson Consulting worked with Out-Smarts through my client, Great Bear Rainforest Essential Oils (Coastal First Nations - Great Bear Initiative). Mhairi and her team were able to provide all the elements needed at both the strategy and implementation levels. They also recognized needs beyond what was requested, such as including beautiful original photography, that had a deep impact on the success of the campaigns.

I was particularly impressed with their creative approach and ability to maximize impact for my client, while being mindful of budget, including significantly growing the social media audience, creating avenues for meaningful engagement, and increasing brand awareness. Clients are in good hands with Out-Smarts Marketing.

“It is rare to find a caring multi-talented team like Out-Smarts. The feedback we’ve received has been incredibly positive. Out-Smarts delivered a site that stands out and showcases our Hackathon in the best light. Their team took the initiative to step up and help us to take this from concept to creation to launch in a little over a month and days ahead of schedule. Mhairi and Kyle truly showed that they cared about our organization.”

Martha Scully - Social Enterprise Manager PIRS

“Being our development partner, we knew we wanted to work with Mhairi and her team at Out-Smarts for our new website. We’ve seen first-hand the results she delivers for our clients which made this an easy choice! We couldn’t be happier with our new website. And, while the new site is exactly what we had hoped for, the process to get there was equally seamless. Mhairi and the entire Out-Smarts team made this project a fully collaborative process and let us be involved every step of the way.”

Angela MacGregor - Owner -  Indalma Creative

"We have a new website and we couldn’t be happier!  Mhairi patiently guided us through the process and kept us on track.  The feel of the website was important to us and she took the time to get to know us and work with us to come up with perfect design.  Her patient guidance and coaching made the project seem less overwhelming.   She used her many skills to help us navigate decisions about creative design, user experience and function of the website and came up with perfect solutions to our many ideas.   We would highly recommend Mhairi and her team to anyone looking for personal touch and a great experience."

"We’ve seen our sites’ rankings improve a lot, traffic to the site has doubled and we have developed a much better understanding of how to work effectively in this important area thanks to Out-Smarts! Highly recommend Mhairi and the team for website SEO projects."

Sue Sherlock, Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada

Mhairi was an absolute pleasure to work with during our National Physiotherapy Month AdWords campaign in May 2017. She used clear, simple language to explain AdWords, and took the time to walk us through the process of finding and bidding on the best keywords, then “tweaking” our messaging throughout the month to get the best possible results. After such clear communication, our team left feeling much more confident to try running an AdWords campaign on our own. From our high campaign impressions and the knowledge we gained from working with her, we would highly recommend working with Mhairi – thanks again!

Sasha Speranzini - Canadian Physiotherapy Association

At Lunapads, we briefly tried to manage our Google AdWords campaigns in-house but were disappointed with the results. Bringing in Out-Smarts made all the difference. Mhairi takes the time to understand our business and uses her extensive expertise and knowledge to build and manage campaigns centred around converting sales. Constantly adjusting the campaigns to make improvements, Mhairi understands our brand and what works for our target audience, making our investment in AdWords a positive source of conversion and sales.
Suzanne Siemens, CEO Lunapads.com

Traffic and conversions have increased, our business is growing and we're very pleased with the results. Mhairi is a joy to work with and has been great at building our internal capacity so we can continue the work in house.

Denise Taschereau - Co Founder - Fairware

After doing some research and getting recommendations I decided to go with Out-Smarts for our website design. That was one of my best decisions. I found Mhairi to be great to deal with. She took the time to learn about my business and the time to teach me about websites. I would highly recommend Out-Smarts to anyone who needs professional help with their web presence.

Their skillset for marketing our product through maximizing our connection to the outside world via social media and the internet is second to none."

Bev Wilson  - Chairman of the Board of Directors at Duncan Housing Society

“When we needed a new website for our clinic, my co-worker and I dreaded going through the process of redesigning the website. The first time we went through this process if was very difficult and tedious. From the beginning, working with Mhairi felt easy and fun. She handled everything that we needed her to without involving us needlessly in the details. She listened very carefully to what we needed and wanted and was able to create our website that reflects this perfectly. It was a joy to work with Mhairi and we are so happy with the website she created for us.”

Dr Jill Scott NDPort Moody Integrated Health

“Working with Out-Smarts has really helped us to make the most of the different online marketing activities for our retirement homes. Now our websites, online advertising and social media all work together to complement and drive targeted traffic and as a result we’ve seen an increase in occupancy.”

Nancy Noso – Jones Corporate Group

“It was such a pleasure working with Mhairi. She did such a wonderful job helping me launch
my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I was able to give her the basic information and she went with it. It was such a load off my plate to have someone efficient and thorough manage my media accounts, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a competent media expert.”

Craig Lovell, Sales and Marketing Professional, A1 Windows

“If you’ve ever wondered if you could be doing more with your website to promote your products or services, if you know that there’s got to be a better way for using social media but aren’t quite sure how to leverage
it effectively, then Out-Smarts is THE ANSWER for you. My colleague and I have been trying to get our website and social media strategy in place for a few years, but there are so many pieces to it and we didn’t really know where to start. It was like throwing spaghetti on the walls and waiting to see what would stick. Not a highly strategic approach.

We finally found Mhairi Petrovic, founder of Out-Smarts. Mhairi is incredible. She took the time to really listen, to learn about our business and find out what our goals and vision for it. Then she researched the field and did a thorough analysis of our site and other sites offering similar services. She taught us so much in such a short period of time about what we can do to truly utilize the power of the internet and social media. She’s provided us with a clear, manageable and actionable plan for making the best use of our website and social media platforms.

I can’t say enough about Mhairi’s professional, generous, and enthusiastic expertise and support. She’s amazing. I’ll be posting another testimonial about her amazingness in a few months to let you know how our company has grown by putting Mhairi’s roadmap and coaching into action.”

Kathryn Thomson, LeadershipMind Consulting

“When Lawyers West launched our new website, we brought Out-Smarts in to help us get found online and improve our Google rank. One of the key benefits of working with Out-Smarts is that they not only understood the technicalities of search engine optimisation but they have the ability to map these to the business strategies of our firm. Thanks to Out-Smarts, when people search for us online they find us. Out-Smarts also greatly improved our social media presence and was able to add a personal touch to all our posts. Out-Smarts took care of our online issues while we were able to do what we were trained to do: practice law!”

Annamarie Kersop – Partner – Lawyers West

“Before working with Out-Smarts, our online presence centered around our website with little search engine optimization and a social media presence that was intermittent and stand alone.  Now we have a cohesive and integrated approach to both online marketing and to building our presence on  Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and through our blog. As a result, we are sharing more effectively as a team and we are driving more connections and business though our web presence.”

Sheila WalkingtonMoney Coaches Canada

“I have been working with Out-Smarts since November 2008. They have done amazing things: Mhairi has educated me in social networking and taught me how to integrate it into my business…”

Gina Best, MA, Mortgage Alliance West – Gina Know Best

“Out-Smarts is fantastic at learning about me, what I do and how I deliver my marketing messages. As a business owner, I was very protective of the business that I had worked so hard to build and it took time for me to realize that the value that Out-Smarts brought to the business was far greater than I could do single-handedly.  I trust entirely them to help me in build my business in the right direction!”.

Elizabeth Mah, Paperclip Law Corporation
