CASEY MATHISON
Chief Creative Officer

Casey is the kindest human on our team - but don’t let that fool you. She will get down and dirty to get the job done! Maybe her work ethic comes from raising a wild child (her daughter takes after her mom), or maybe it comes from her prairie roots. Casey is a talented designer that can make any drab Canva template look like the Gucci of social media. Her free spirit feeds her creativity, and that has made her into the incredible Chief Creative Officer that she is today.

5 Reasons you should hire us
WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A WHILE NOW.

Our CEO started working in the social media space back in 2012 (before Instagram Stories was even a thing!) and Marr Media was officially founded in 2014. We’ve seen new platforms emerge and either grow to captivate new audiences, or die sad, unfortunate deaths (RIP Vine!). we’ve seen how quickly and relentlessly this space changes and we know what it takes to keep up to date with the new. It’s not for the faint of heart, but it sure is exciting!  

Social Media Agency

You don’t have to take our word for it (and you probably shouldn’t if you’re doing your due diligence). Our happy clients have offered us glowing reviews which you can find in our Customer Stories section, along with some Case Studies to provide you with more context and insight.

WE'VE GOT PROOF WE'RE AWESOME
Social Media Agency

Now don’t get us wrong, we do know the value of our time. What we mean here by “cheaper” is: We work remote from my own home, so you don’t have to waste precious office space on me. You also aren't paying for our expensive  cappuccino maker, ergonomic keyboards and trendy standup desks. Our virtual office means that those extra office expenses, don’t get worked into our rates. We provide our own equipment (ie. laptop and Smartphone) so you save money there.  We don’t believe you need a full-time social media marketer to execute your brand. And while others may try to convince you you do (why wouldn't they want a cushy full-time salary and competitive benefit package?), we're here to tell you - you don’t. You probably need anywhere from 10-40 hours/month to do the job well. And we can customize the right package at the right price for the right amount of time.

WE'RE CHEAPER
Social Meia Agency

"I started in social working with my own brand; an organization I used to own and operate called Gluten Free Calgary. We grew a large and engaged community to share resources and support for anyone living gluten-free in Calgary or beyond. I was then able to activate that community to launch a subscription box product that generated a sustainable revenue model, as well as intice strategic partnerships and sell website advertising. An engaged community is valuable! Since then, I’ve expanded beyond this to work with B2B and B2C brands in marketing technology, fitness, education, medicine, and consumer-packaged goods as well. What I learned is that each brand and industry needs a unique strategy to accomplish their specific goals and objectives on social media. And I know how to build one." - Tessa May Marr, CEO & Founder, Mad Media

WE'VE WORKED WITH MANY DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES
