Hear what our clients say:

"“As a fractional CMO who does marketing strategy consulting with multiple new clients each year, I regularly need to identify and vet PR firms on behalf of those clients. Imagine my delight when I found Michele Harris! Rather than toiling away researching, interviewing, and processing candidates across myriad industries and geographies, not to mention trying to keep up with all the firms that come and go in the fast-paced agency world, Michele just handles it. Boom! She maintains a database of the finest PR firms worldwide, creates (or optimizes) your detailed brief to communicate the needed information to the most appropriate ones, and then narrows the field to a short list of the perfect-fit agencies. She arranges the interviews and is able to counsel her client to the final selection. In the end, you have the best possible fit and the least amount of effort. And the fee is beyond reasonable. I spend my clients’ money like it was my own. So, moving forward, when my clients need a PR agency, I will use Michele and Smarti Solutions to help me find the right one.”

- Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Outsiders
"Smarti Solutions stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park for us. We were looking for a PR agency to work with a diverse set of audiences and deliver results against our business objectives and budget requirements. Michele took the time to understand Cask, our business, our people, and our needs, and quickly developed a exceptionally well qualified short list of candidates. What amazed me was that each and every agency she brought to us was an excellent fit and could have done what we needed. Smarti provided thoughtful guidance throughout the process and we are confident we will see significant results with our selected firm."

- Director, Marketing, Cask LLC
"I was having a difficult challenge finding a marketing agency that was a good fit for my situation. My breakthrough happened when I came across Michele and Smarti Solutions. Michele took the time to deeply understand my specific challenges and very quickly came up with a range of great options. We’ve now selected one and are in a much better position. I’m thankful for the good work of Smarti and definitely would recommend them to other CMOs and marketing leaders."

- Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer Head - Mindtree Americas
"I had been searching for the right PR agency for more than a year with no luck. I serendipitously received a call from Michele – and what perfect timing! After a few phone calls to learn about the company, the team and what we were looking for, Michele searched high and low to bring forward terrific candidates. Each agency we met with was smart, well-informed and passionate about their work – it was clear that Michele was very thoughtful about who she brought forth. Working with Smarti Solutions was a smooth process and I’m happy to say that we’ve found a terrific agency and look forward to a successful and longstanding relationship with them."

- Director of Public Relations, Trusted Media Brands
"I'm very impressed with Smarti's agency search services. As a former PR agency owner and now a head of marketing, I know how important it is to find a firm that meets your specific needs, budget and culture. Although I have many contacts in the industry I turned to Smarti Solutions to help streamline my search, knowing that Michele would bring me quality agencies that would meet the requirements I set out. The boutique to mid-size agencies presented by Smarti were at a whole other level than the previous large firms I had met with and were more prepared to meet with me! It was a better use of my time, as well as my CEO’s. I got what I needed and had excellent options. Many businesses think they can do it on their own, but miss out on talented agencies who may actually be better suited and provide better value. Smarti is an excellent solution for anyone looking for a PR or marketing agency."

- U.S. Director of Marketing, AAPN/888 Poker
"As a mid-sized B2B services firm in a highly competitive market, it was critical to us to find a top notch advertising agency. Smarti Solutions helped us to essentially upgrade our brand by selecting the right vendor who could help us on all fronts—globally. Michele was instrumental in providing us with a great selection of advertising agencies that fit the bill, but even more importantly helped us realize that we could get more bang for our buck by working with a multi-faceted firm that could handle everything from print to web. Smarti truly got us into another league of vendors than we’d considered previously. We’re thrilled with the results we’re getting."

- AVP Global Marketing, Toluna
"I spent almost a year trying to find a PR professional to meet my needs… hundreds of resumes, no success. Hired Smarti Solutions and within a few weeks I had three excellent candidates… had a hard time deciding between two, and just made my hire. Very pleased with the process, the professionalism, and of course the resources that were provided."

- President & COO, Acronym Media
"Our organization was challenged to find a marketing and database development company to provide the highest level of service, creativity and database expertise. After a time-consuming and costly misstep, we turned to Smarti Solutions for help. Michele Harris, and her team of professionals, were a quick study our business and related requirements. Once armed with the information, Smarti professionally provided three excellent candidates meeting all the criteria we deemed critical to our selection of a business "partner". Within 30 days, we were well on our way to accomplishing our well-documented goals with a "partner" we felt would be a long-term contributor to our business. Way to go, Smarti!"

- Marketing Director, SwimsuitsForAll.com
"I initially saw no reason to bring someone else in to assist us in that process. To be honest, I did think it was another added layer and another added expense in terms of time, energy and possible money. But without a doubt Smarti has done a GREAT job of listening to us, learning our needs and perimeters and responding correctly with terrific matches. I'm sure there are many business people out there who think they can do it on their own too, but who in the end, only waste more time, energy, and money. We're thrilled with our new PR agency, and recognize we would not have found them without Smarti! "

- Vice President Sales / Business Development, GenieKnows.com
"We are a tough customer, a consumer-marketing firm looking to hire a corporate marketing company-it can't get tougher than that! I knew from the first meeting with Michele that she would get the job done. She is both pleasant and aggressive—there's a twist! She has a deep rolodex (I may have just dated myself) but doesn't parade in firms to waste everyone's time. Michele sat down with me and got a clear understanding of my company and what our needs are both for a PR firm and a creative marketing company. Michele had to work hard and dig deep but she succeeded; we made our decision on both a PR firm and a creative marketing company. We saved time, but much more importantly found the right fit. I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend Smarti to anyone and everyone!!"
