“Stratton did an excellent job for us in critically assessing our magazine and developing a strategy to re-position and re-energize the magazine. They were quick to grasp our market dynamics and factors affecting the magazine. They constructively worked with our staff to develop a pragmatic set of tactics that involved new design, editorial focus, market position, and ad sales collateral. The net impact of the work has been an increase in our ad sales and market position, with very positive response from our advertisers and readers. I highly recommend them and have continued to work with them on other publishing-related projects."
