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!
Fairware has worked with Out-Smarts on two projects so far: Search Engine Optimization for our website redesign and on developing an email marketing strategy. 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.
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.

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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.

As a result, we are sharing more effectively as a team and we are driving more connections and business though our web presence.”
