Who We Are

Who We Are…

Marketing Strategies & Solutions is a full-service marketing firm providing clients with integrated communications services.

Marketing Strategies & Solutions first opened their doors in 1997 in London, Ontario as a one-person operation. From the outset, the firm set itself apart from other marketing agencies with the ability to bring focused creative thinking to clients’ communication problems. Today, we are a tight-knit group of experienced professionals working closely to create effective solutions for our clients.

Over 23 Years of “Breaking New Ground”

Traditional marketing and advertising firms often start with an individual who offers an ability to draw or to write creatively, expecting that these skills will lead to the kind of answers that their clients need. The core skill at Marketing Strategies & Solutions is the ability to think creatively.

We distinguish ourselves by providing an extra set of eyes and ears that are keenly tuned to our clients’ businesses. We think on behalf of our clients and, also, we learn to think like our clients. As active listeners, we are often able to offer new perspectives and a fresh vision to the issues our clients face.

While the scope of our services has expanded with our growth, our guiding principles have remained constant, underscored by the personal philosophy of Robert Adeland:

“We see ourselves as an integral part of our community – of our social community as well as our business communities. We strongly believe in our obligation to make a positive contribution to the community, not only through donations of our time, knowledge and energy, but through the values we represent in the work we do every day.”

We take great pride and are proud and honoured to have been awarded the 2017 Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award.
