Before my session with JS I had lost of ideas spinning around my head in multiple wayward directions.  Jen helped me make sense of them and stopped the spinning.  During the session she cast her magical spell with her special brand of humour, confidence and knowledge gave me direction and focus.  I ended up with an amazing sense of self-belief and a clear way forward.  Plus, it was such a fun day,  and I am so grateful.  Thanks Jen it was worth every penny spent.

“After a great day’s training with Jen and putting together a social media strategy for the launch of Molly Mojo, we successfully launched the website with a campaign across our social media that went way beyond our expectations. The campaign helped place the brand in front of thousands of parents, growing our audience to over 3000 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. More importantly, it added adding over 10,000 ‘parents’ to our customer database in just 4 weeks with a minimal Facebook ad spend. It was a resounding success and has given us a great platform to continue growing the business from and we’re delighted with the result.”

I decided to work with Jen after gaining an insight into her level of knowledge and expertise based on the valuable free content she provides. Jen and I spent the day together and covered so many critical areas of my new business and how I could make it a success. Beforehand I was beginning to feel overwhelmed by the number of different marketing methods and tools available, but Jen simplified all of that. Jen went back to basics looking at my services and pricing, how to achieve my end clients using the key methods for my type of business and ultimately learning how to measure the results.

Jen helped me enormously by giving me focus and clarity and afterwards, I had a clear plan of action to get visible and get clients. I will certainly look at working with Jen again in the future, she has a great personality, totally approachable and she totally knows her stuff! Thank you so much Jen.

My intensive with Jen gave me so much clarity and focus. My head was hurting with all the ideas buzzing around inside of it …not to mention the pages of notes and to-do lists that cluttered my desk. I was feeling quite overwhelmed and confused about what to do next.

My day with Jen was not only thoroughly enjoyable (she’s lovely!) but I felt that she really ‘got’ me and my business. She completely understood what I was trying to achieve and it felt great to finally get everything down onto paper and into some sort of coherent, logical order. We brainstormed ideas, campaigns and marketing strategies, we set goals and we put it all into a comprehensive 6 month plan.

I slept so well that night and woke up the next morning feeling completely refreshed, refocused, re-energised and ready to get going with purpose. Since then I have worked with Jen on a weekly basis and she is so willing to help me with anything that has come up for me in the week. I will definitely make the intensive day a regular 6-monthly event and I can’t really imagine ever not wanting to have her help. She is part of my team 🙂

 Jen and I recently spent a day together strategizing and developing a social media plan for my new business, Prüv. Jen’s efficiency, insight and ability to get to the crux of every issue is impressive.

She added enormous value and brought her own brand of creative energy. Importantly, she has provided an invaluable, structured and systematic strategy toolkit for me to carry forward and develop as the business grows.

Working with Jen and being able to benefit from her expertise has helped me crystallised lot of issues, given me a prioritised list of actionable items and set me up perfectly to move from strength to strength.

Working with Jen has helped me clarify my ‘big strategy’ and focus on what is important. I have a clearer, more focused plan of action for my social media in a way that fits my values and the work that I do.

When I got back after the day, there was a phone message from a lady asking me to write a blog post for her website and someone offering to manage my YouTube channel after watching the video we put on Facebook (that’s had 1.2k views)! I’ve also booked two workshops in London!

Jen is a kind and gentle person who has helped me forge a path into the future that excites and enthuses me. Thank you heaps!

Beatriz Cadavid

As a ‘Solopreneur’ It was so healing and refreshing to have Jen in the comfort of my own creative space and be able to bounce off her and get clarification on so many questions that were lingering around.  Our strategy day was just the exact bridge I needed to connect me from the ‘now what, what’s next?’ block that had me frozen in my tracks, to being able to see what steps I needed to take next. 

I loved the way Jen was able to meet me where I was at and provide me with on the spot solutions that I could implement right there and then. This really was a treat and made our day extra valuable. I was so relieved that I was able to walk away with a breadth of information. Jen helped me see what steps I needed to take next and gave me faith that it may just be possible to make this project a reality!

Thank you so much Jen, you’re an inspiration! I am really chuffed that the universe revealed you on my path and I wish I could have had you for a longer period of time!

 Jen is one of the most friendly and professional people that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely passionate about social media and her enthusiasm is her greatest attribute.

She helped me to create a unique social media strategy for the business that is 100% customised and ticks all the boxes. Her own social media and blog has given me amazing value and I learned so much before we started working together!
I can’t recommend Jen enough.

 We had everything in out heads, albeit in a jumble!

Jen calmly talked and brainstormed with us and helped organise our social media & marketing plan. We were delighted, thrilled and extremely impressed.

The big picture, now broken down into lots of ‘little pictures’ makes it so easy to understand and implement. 

The intensive worked so well because we spent the whole day together, which enabled continuity and clarity towards our final plan (and it was the most time effective too!)

We would highly recommend Jen and her intensives. It was the perfect day and the result was beyond all our expectations!”

Working with Jen proved to be an absolute pleasure.  Going into the social media side of my business always seemed beyond my reach and she made me feel that I could do it if I wanted to.  She uncomplicated the complicated, de-confused the confusing and illuminated the mysterious.  She’s just a delight to work with.  Thanks Jen – and don’t think you’ve got rid of me!

Caroline Lindsay, Divorce Coach at Resolve Retreats

 


I was in a real fix, a social media nightmare, and I was panicking. Thank goodness I found Jen! Jen was able to help me clear the mist so I was able to work with her on structuring a clear strategy. After just one session I was able to develop my ideas for social media and content, plus Jen gave me loads of actionable, realistic ideas, too.

I was a little worried about how much I would get out of it, I wondered how much could be achieved in such a short space of time, and via a video call rather than face-to-face, but I found this method hugely practical and easy.

A final point to note about Jen; some trainers and consultants have an air of superiority and occasionally a I-won’t-get-out-of-bed-for-less-than-10k type attitude, which can put you off and instil fear before you’ve even started working with them. But you won’t get this with Jen, she is lovely, personable, warm and down-to-earth, and worth every minute, every penny. I highly recommend her.”

Simon Piatt

I had an ideal list of requirements for what a professional website would look like for my business. I had WordPress set up and ready to go. But I was struggling to find the right solution for creating my website.

I wanted to work with a company that were experts in website design and layout, social media and digital marketing and most importantly copywriting. But I also wanted to learn how to add pages, blog posts, images and generally maintain the site myself. 

I chose Jen because you get trained in creating and running your website in parallel with setting it up. In just 12 sessions we have built a great website together! 

 

Jen is great to work with, fun, very creative, listens, challenging, client and customer focussed and has unique ability to turn a few sentences and ideas into meaningful copy.

Jen’s social media classes are second to none, her unrivalled knowledge of the industry has really helped to improve my social media skill set and ultimately gain my company business. I particularly enjoyed learning the inner workings of the giant that is Facebook, I now know how to promote my business through the art of sponsored posts and target marketing, resulting in Clean Cut’s next franchisee meeting coming from Facebook.

 It was such a pleasure coming to your social media strategy workshop. We came to learn other ways to be noticed online as well as Facebook and got so many tips we can implement.

What was different from any other media seminars I have previously been on was that you shared examples from other experts and businesses. You also relayed the information to us, but then followed it with a practical task, which was really engaging.

Thanks so much Jen, we will mention you far and wide!

“We built rapport fast, covered a lot of ground quickly and easily and were able each week to go away and use the tools you had trained us on in our daily work.”

“I really enjoyed everything about our 121 training – honestly! I felt you took it at our speed and were very able to quickly tailor the session to suit whatever issue we raised, as well as keep us on track and take us through the basics of social media for our business.

I loved the realtime aspect. I was worried it wouldn’t be as good as being together in a room, but actually is was perfect! We built rapport fast, covered a lot of ground quickly and easily and were able each week to go away and use the tools you had trained us on in our day to day work. Being able to share screens made it interactive and bringing up live examples of our social media, plus answering all our questions, felt like we were moving projects forward continually.

Jen’s training has definitely given me more confidence and a push to go out there and do more with our social media. I’m braver in my whole approach and more inquisitive too.”

Jen has been instrumental in the creation of a focussed and powerful online presence for me and my new business

michelle wildman photography

I hired Jen for a 121 so I could start things off right with my new business. Jen managed to demystify a few aspects of Facebook and Google+ which I’d never really understood and together we created a strategic social media and blogging plan to raise my profile online and get more bookings.

Jen was well prepared for our session and supported me after the training when I had more questions. She is very succinct, direct and clearly knows her stuff when it comes to social media and blogging. Jen has been instrumental in the creation of a focussed and powerful online presence for me and my new business.

Jen’s course was both inspirational and informative. As a complete novice I was really impressed with the level the teaching was pitched at

Jennifer Beagent

Jen’s course was both inspirational and informative. As a complete novice I was really impressed with the level the teaching was pitched at, but also that the course notes were provided printed out for note taking but also on a CD to make it easy to access time and again. As well as being really useful for blogging it was great for networking too, and there was such a diverse range of people that helped you look at things from a different point of view. Excellent course, great facilities, well-priced. I’m super pleased I decided to go for it, thanks so much!”

We directed traffic from our social media channels to the posts and our fans responded extremely positively to the subjects she chose. Jen has a fantastic ability to select appropriate content and write posts in a tone that appeals directly to our audience. We hope to work with Jen again soon and have no hesitation in recommending her for similar work”

“Jen’s talk to our business network members went down a storm. It has been out most popular event to date with a full room of nearly 40 members and the feedback from the audience was great. Jen covered a very timely topic – sharing her top do’s and dont’s of using Facebook for Business – and took a wide range of questions from the floor. She not only presented with confidence and kept everyone engaged, with ripples of laughter throughout, but she also managed to provide immense value and some key lightbulb moments for the business owners in the room. I know our members have gone away with advice they can action right away, which is just what we were looking for.”

“Jen ran a social media workshop for my business Ali’s Therapy Academy for a group of therapists, I have also attended one of her LinkedIn workshops and been at many of her talks. Jen certainly knows her stuff! She comes across very friendly and easy language for anybody to understand – so if she is talking to a group of small businesses it makes sense to them and then with a group of complementary therapists she put across the use of social media without the hard sell. I can highly recommend Jen for her knowledge, her approachability, and for being the go to person on social media.”

“Using Social Media effectively in business can be a difficult task.  Even though I was able to use Social Media I wasn’t sure how to use it effectively.  I wanted some advice from an expert at an affordable rate.  I wanted to hear some advice that I hadn’t heard before from other marketing professionals.  Jen’s background as a social media consultant in the City filled me with confidence.  Having worked in the City myself I know you have to deliver results to stay employed!

Jen not only showed me how to use a number of the different social media interfaces correctly, and take me through areas I didn’t know were there, she also gave me examples of how and when I might need to use the different functions that were relevant to the jobs and tasks I would be undertaking for myself and other clients I work with. Jen has clearly implemented strategies for engaging with prospective clients and colleagues successfully through Social Media in the past and I found the knowledge and experience she shared with me invaluable.”
