we love them and they love us

Of course you want to know that we are walking the walk at starfish marketing. Or should that be rescuing starfish?

We're proud of the work we do in helping businesses with their marketing needs. 

We're even prouder that the people we work with agree that we walk the walk, and that they are prepared to share that with the world.

The process was seamless, we had an incredibly fast turnaround, and the ongoing plan of action was inside our budget.

The Hume Bank City2City engaged Mell at Starfish Marketing to lead our social media marketing of the 2021 event. We are so very grateful to Mell for her expertise and generosity. Mell went above and beyond in supporting the event, and with the event moving to a virtual format in 2021, social media became our primary promotional tool. We repeatedly called on Mell's expert advice, and the quality and effectiveness of her work is outstanding. Mell continues to support us and respond to our needs, long after the completion of the 2021 event. Mell is a pleasure to work with and a true professional. We highly recommend Starfish Marketing.
