What Our Clients Are Saying

As a small business, we had not engaged in any marketing platforms so when it came time to start the process of maximizing our reach and revealing our new brand, we reached out to Lisa with the Marketing Station. Working with Lisa has been a very positive and enjoyable experience. She is very engaged, creative, and delivered all ideas and concepts in a timely fashion. Her knowledge and experience have guided us throughout the process. We’ve added more followers on all three of our platforms and have already seen an increase in new business. Lisa helped us grow our Impressions on Facebook to over 12000 and over 14000 on LinkedIn all within 90 days. We highly recommend working with Lisa and The Marketing Station. She exudes professionalism and delivers results. We continue to receive compliments on all our social media posts, and we are very excited to continue our partnership with Lisa.

Isabelle Perreault Founder & CEO - Differly

Lisa is and has been an amazing mentor and friend. She has a sharp strategic and creative mind, is dedicated and results oriented, and cuts through the clutter to be able to focus on core issues and messages. Lisa's superpowers are strategy, communications, and creating beneficial partnerships and I would highly recommend her for projects in branding, digital and traditional marketing.

Erin Patchell The Positivist

Lisa helped us recruit in-kind sponsors for our annual golf tournament and delivered a wide range of valuable items that we used in our silent auction to raise much needed funds. Lisa also consulted on some key marketing projects and her feedback was useful as we finalized our 2016 campaign. She is a loyal, dedicated, determined individual and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services.

Jackie Kavanagh General Manager - Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on a major project in 2008, "Operation Sweden" as part of the NHL Global Series with the Ottawa Senators. This project had a lot of moving parts, including but not limited to: Roughly 500k in budget management, product development, product launch, product marketing, onsite client management in Stockholm and more. As you can imagine, when you are the "official" tour of an NHL team, the responsibilities and pressure are elevated because the project involves the ownership group, sponsors, suite owners and season ticket holders. I have personally since managed 3 more official global series tours with Edmonton, Tampa Bay and Ottawa again and Lisa provided support, creativity and marketing ideas at a level at the top of her profession.Since then, I now use Lisa for all my travel agency social media marketing. She is punctual, organized, polite and professional. I would not hesitate to use her again in any project management or marketing capacity. Also. her ability to work independently and autonomously elevates my business and allows me time to concentrate on what I do best.

Lisa Strangway has been our Social Media Manager since September of 2018. Working with Lisa is wonderful. She really helps us stay on top of our social media presence and build an audience in Ottawa and Toronto. She is incredibly receptive, interactive, and responsive to our needs. She has helped us with our email campaigns and promoting our annual comedy contest.

Jason Laurans President - Absolute Comedy

Working on social media has always been a challenge for me. I didn’t know where to begin to engage my audience in a thoughtful and meaningful way. I am so glad I found Lisa and her company The Marketing Station.Using the CP Social Scene Partnership Package was easy and very effective. Lisa provided professional advice and guidance. I was thrilled to have my business featured on a large, local, and engaged Facebook group. The partnership package has made a significant difference to my business. I received 9 messages from potential clients looking for more information, 14 additional likes to my Facebook page, and 285 viewers, a 104% increase in traffic to my page the day we ran the live broadcast. My website also produced more traffic the week we launched the contest, with 247 hits, an increase of 87%, which I think is pretty remarkable.

Our BIA hired The Marketing Station to take over our social media promotions during a busy Christmas season when we were without a paid coordinator. Lisa Strangway very quickly came up with clever creative and executed a professional media campaign. She also immediately set up a more efficient system for BIA members to communicate with each other. We then hired The Marketing Station to come up with a long-term promotions strategy for our BIA. Lisa’s research was thorough and her report was comprehensive and achievable. We have found Lisa to be genuinely engaged and supportive while being direct and honest about what our challenges are in our BIA. Lisa has produced excellent work under pressure of time constraints and with very little direction. She truly understands and believes in the power of networking.

I have been using the services of the Marketing Station for about eight months now to promote my business on Instagram and Facebook. Lisa has been great every step of the way with her posts and keeping in touch with me on a weekly basis about what she will be doing next to help our business grow. She has been doing a really great job promoting things.

Garry Pelletier Owner - Tutti Frutti Barrhaven

In our short time so far working with Lisa, we have seen a huge increase in engagement for both of our company’s social media accounts! Lisa takes on the responsibility of researching your business exceptionally well and then proceeds to create and post quality and accurate content for each. The process of working with her is extremely relieving as we quite honestly do not have time to handle social media along with the day-to-day operations and she is able to take that one thing off our plate! We would highly recommend Lisa for your social media and marketing planning!
