Experience that cuts through the fluff

We love marketing, we love working with great clients and we love the electric buzz when a client can see the potential and they aren't left scratching their head.

Home Grown Kids

"Home Grown Kids enlisted the help of Michelle and Rachel to assist in bringing the company to the fore in terms of becoming market leaders. 

With a varied role, from market research to effective marketing strategies, to new and exciting marketing tools, the full project scope and management was handled by Rachel.  She truly embraced our company's culture and achieved amazing results.

Our company has gone from strength to strength from input from Michelle and Rachel and continues to grow and develop further week by week. They not only gave us tools for then, but skills for now too.”

"We have been working with Rachel from Luna Solutions for a number of years now and have found their approach suits us perfectly. Our monthly meetings are the most effective way for us to "make decisions and keep things moving".  We can trust that all our marketing plans will happen without us having to follow up on them. This allows us to carry on with what we do best while Luna Solutions can do what they do best."

"Rachel has been fantastic in her organised, methodical way of tidying up my mess! She had a very vague brief of what was required to update our online presence going into the project, but by asking all the right questions she figured out what was required and got the job completed well within our time frame. Next time we need assistance with the world of marketing, Rachel will be our first call."
