Hear from Our Clients
I have worked with Christine Rambo for more than five years as the Chair of the Economic Development Committee and Vice President of the Jackson Parish Police Jury (county government). Together we worked toward assembling land and certifying an industrial site in our parish (county). Christine is one of the most dedicated economic developers I could ever have worked with. Her knowledge and work ethics are outstanding.
Christine Rambo is a leader in economic development and marketing. Her attention to detail and commitment to her client's success makes you feel like you're her top priority. Christine managed my company's rebrand and website development. She was extremely knowledgeable, insightful and creative, taking my brand and website to the next level. Christine is the most creative and passionate marketing consultant I've ever had the privilege to work with. Her drive, marketing strategies and knowledge make her one of the best in the business!
Women for Sobriety was in need of a total rebrand and marketing plan for our non-profit. Christine and all her staff at Upsize Marketing Strategies were knowledgeable, professional, compassionate and creative! Their knowledge of marketing and the non-profit sector is unparalleled. I appreciated their thoroughness and patience as we went through this process for the first time ever. Additionally, we used them to create new marketing collateral for us as well, therefore, we cannot recommend them enough for their skill and talent!
