Social Media Testimonials

Work It! Get In, Get Noticed, Get Promoted

I’m the founder and former CEO of SkillPath Seminars, and you can bet my company has had a robust social media presence ever since there was one to be had. So, being no stranger to the world of tweets, posts, and likes, when my latest book was published, I wasn’t sure whether I really needed help with my own personal social media campaign. Trust me, I did! I was a babe in the woods when it came to the unique nuances of promoting my book, rather than my company. And I can tell you that my Smith Publicity social media specialist was, without question, an absolute genius at navigating the in’s and outs of Facebook and LinkedIn. She took care of all my posts, monitored my stats, and made me look like a pro. She was professional, competent, fun to work with, and best of all—she got excellent results! The social media component of my latest book launch was a huge success, thanks exclusively to the work of my social media specialist at Smith Publicity. I’m definitely a customer for life!

SEALs: Naval Special Warfare in Action

After resisting for years, I finally shuffled to the edge of the social media pool and dipped my toe in. Smith Publicity wrapped me in a life preserver, handed me a brightly colored swim noodle, and then pushed me into the deep end. Not only did I float but also I rather enjoyed the swim, showing-off with leisurely backstrokes. Frankly, I didn’t want to get out. The lifeguard from Smith Publicity watching me like a hawk throughout the process was Brittney, a very personable, responsive and knowledgeable professional who gave me easy-to-understand instructions. It was fun. It was exciting. And now I no longer see the social media pool as being a forbidding place to swim. Thanks to the Smith Publicity team, the proverbial ‘creature from the black lagoon’ has been banished.

Apache Courage

Working with my social media specialist at Smith made my incursion into the world of social media decidedly easier than my trying to do it all myself. She gave me very clear directions in our interview and equally clear written material which was very helpful. One of the things I wanted to know was which media could be most valuable to me. She provided the answers. Initially, I had been worried that the generational divide that existed between us would make it difficult for me. It was not a factor. Now, I have confidence that using social media will not overwhelm me or will take up all my time. In fact, I look forward to posting on Twitter. I would not have said that earlier this year!

The Classroom Secret

Thank you so much! It really helped me enter the world of social media. My Smith specialist was a great teacher of technology. I was terrified at the start because I know hardly anything about computers. Thanks to you, I have a working knowledge to get me started on using Facebook and Twitter. I’m very impressed! You are a hero!

The Savvy Cyber Kids at Home series

Having been a user of many social media platforms for years, I was a bit skeptical about what I could gain from the Social Media service offered by Smith Publicity. As we were looking to take advantage of all platforms and opportunities, I signed up, and I am thrilled that I did! They were a pleasure to work with and extremely knowledgeable and well versed in all aspects of social media platform performance. If you are new to social media or have been a user for year, you can’t go wrong with Smith Publicity!

Sylvia's

I had been on Twitter but I had no idea what to do with it.  No idea, until I spoke to my social media specialist at Smith Publicity for about twenty minutes.

 

I added a hundred followers in a few days and every time I open up my email I’ve got a dozen more.  But not just any followers, but other writers and more importantly other sites that would review, publicize and promote your book.

 

There was a time not so long ago that I looked at all my work, the published and the unpublished, and saw that the pages were yellowing and realized they were all gong to crumble and fade away.  But that’s not the case in this now 21st Century is it?  Not for any of us.  There is a whole universe out there.  Twitter seems to be one of the keys to that universe and if you want to how to work that key, spend a few minutes speaking with Smith Publicity!

The Bloody Shoe Affair

The Smith Publicity social network set up and training helped me secure over 140 likes on my public Facebook and over 1400 Twitter followers within  six weeks. I feel the commitment and dedication they put into my campaign will continue to net positive results in promoting my book. I highly recommend their services.

Dire Wolf

When it came to social media, my mind was void and without form, I was just clueless. Smith Publicity’s Social Media Service stepped in and set me up on Twitter and Facebook. They then had a one-on-one class through an interactive web presentation to teach me how to use these tools. They are professional and provide an outstanding service.
