“I cannot say enough about Amanda’s creativity, professionalism and dedication. Personally, I would have been lost without her on several instances – her results for us have been stellar.

Amanda was brought aboard to handle our social media for our residential development company. As a new division of a large commercial real estate company, M2i was given a social media voice by Amanda that was clearly built upon the company’s platform, while being engaging and welcoming. Amanda easily worked with our branding company and our digital firm to create, develop and implement several social media campaigns.

She was key in the implementation of a secondary profile for SoBow, our first residential development. With the second social media account, Amanda did a great job of giving SoBow a distinct, specific profile and building upon the strengths of the original M2i profile while remaining true to the company’s integrity and corporate positioning. Amanda was also key in representing us in the public eye at sponsored events and within the social media community.”

“After graduating, I knew I wanted to freelance in Graphic Design but had no idea how to market myself. Having done some work for Amanda in the past I felt she would be the best person to advise me.

Amanda is at the top of her game. She has extensive knowledge of the corporate world, but catered her advice for my specific needs as a small time entrepreneur. I would highly recommend working with Amanda. She is knowledgeable, professional, and fun to work with. Her advice has been spot on.”

– Sandra McNaughton, Graphic Designer

“I had worked with Amanda for about one year at New Era Technology, where she was the Marketing Associate. Since I am in the Sales Department, Amanda and I worked quite closely as she created marketing materials for me, as well as planning and implementing the annual Marketing Strategy.

Amanda is a detail-oriented, self-motivated individual who has a firm grip on the how’s and why’s of customer buying behaviour. This lends to her strengths as a marketing professional, in particular in the creation of effective marketing campaigns that helped support the Sales Department, as well as providing a positive brand image within our client base.

Even after Amanda had moved on from New Era, we kept in touch, and have worked on a project in which New Era had contracted her to create a Quick Reference Guide to support one of my client’s in-house training program. Initially I had immediately thought of her as the right person to approach, because I had no doubt in my mind that she would deliver with exceptional results – and she certainly did!

I would highly recommend Amanda to join any team that is looking for a someone who is well-versed in marketing, either print or electronic media, and who consistently exceeds expectations in executing her deliverables. I am looking forward to working with Amanda again soon.”

– Jasben Lai, Sales Manager

“Amanda is the person you want on your team. She is professional, talented and very smart with a lot of marketing savvy, and she is eager to help you grow your business. With my marketing in her capable hands, I always feel confident that we will get results. Once I put our social media marketing into The Marketing Girl’s capable hands, I felt confident that we would get results. It was great to see people starting to respond to the posts. I’ve already recommended The Marketing Girl to several people!”

– Sherry Kennedy, Singer & Artist

“During my work with Amanda I have found her to be dependable, reliable, hard-working, conscientious, honest and courteous. Amanda has excellent communication and creative skills. In addition, she is extremely organized, reliable and computer literate.

Amanda can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. She is flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned to her. Amanda provided valuable assistance in other areas of company operations, as well.”

– Eugene Ozvek, Graphic Designer

“Attention to detail and ensuring these details are complete are two of Amanda’s many strong suits. In the crazy world of events it’s so hard to manage all the many little things alongside the many big things. I’ve not worked with many that can handle this and do it well at the same time but Amanda is one of those that can and does. In fact she flourishes while doing it. I look forward to the next time we work together as I know that it’ll be a whole lot easier having her there.”

– Tamara Nowacki, Controller

“I would heartily recommend Amanda because of her professional approach and attitude to her profession. I have found her personable, adaptable, intelligent and a creative thinker. She has ideas, problem solving skills and a determined attitude.

She can take a joke and has a good sense of humour, something desperately need in the workplace and lacking in too many people. Her approach and helpful attitude are appreciated, she will be missed around her after she goes.”

– Barry Meckelberg, Commercial Property Manager

“Amanda who beyond being a pleasure to work with, has a talent for producing excellent results. Amanda was given the task of re-branding Barclay Street Real Estate in short amount of time.
