I appreciate your understanding of my approach to my business – I’m not terribly salesy and the people I was working with previously kept trying to force me into a way more American style of selling which felt really inauthentic to me. I just wanted to work with someone who appreciated the approach I wanted to take (even though it might lead to a slower burn) and could help me optimise sales while still being authentic Rachel Corbett

Creator of PodSchool & weekly host of the Project TV

We’ve had a long and painful history of people selling us solutions for our social media marketing. They all promised the world and delivered a monthly invoice.

I decided on using you the first time I read some copy you wrote. It was simple, no fluff, and direct to the point: a rare gift.

When we agreed to go with you, I said I wanted just two things: results, and no BS. You delivered the results with great conversions, and you delivered without any BS.

We are now looking at working with you on our USA website – simply because we trust you. Ian Hamilton

I had the pleasure of working with Kim as General Manager of Products for Opmantek. Kim worked with us through a highly successful growth phase, coming up with many creative ways to reach our customers in a very competitive industry. She has a deep knowledge of digital marketing especially when it comes to Google Ads. Kim is a great communicator and is very adaptable, which made her an indispensable part of the marketing team. She is pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her Adam Leeflang
