As a small business owner it is often necessary to juggle many hats. For that reason, when I find someone I respect, trust and like to help me juggle one of my hats, I consider it a great day because it is so rare. Debra is such a person.
I discovered Debra on the Internet while trying to clean up a mess I had made of my site. While I am fairly website savvy, I was stumped on a few issues and could not find anyone who had the solutions, despite claims that they did. The solution required someone who could understand both marketing and the inner workings of website construction (HTML code) and most had strengths in only one area. After a brief conversation with Debra, I knew she was extremely knowledgeable in both areas and could solve my problems.
Even better, as a small business owner herself, she instantly understood everything I threw at her and could make recommendations I could trust. With Debra there is no curtain to pull back, no wasted time you’ll be billed for. She is the real deal and I can’t recommend her enough.
Debra is so good, she’s scary good. She has a tremendous ability to quickly assess and recommend Marketing/Sales/Small Business tactics for success. Whenever I’ve not listened to her, I’ve wasted money!
I cannot say enough about the services that Debra has performed for me. I have been working with her for several years and she has helped design and implement many different marketing ideas. I am seeing a much greater return from my marketing expenditures. I am very happy with the results and have recommended her to many of my business associates.
I have tapped Debra’s expertise and balance several times over the last several years to help assess new opportunities and formalize marketing plans for specific programs and services. She has always been able to synthesize new information quickly and provide a tailored framework that enabled us to get through the planning process quickly and effectively. Most recently, she brought me up to speed on Social Media in a very efficient and practical way that let me prioritize what to do and what I would need to know going forward. She has been a valuable resource!
I received an inbound lead for drainage work. The person who sent it said “when I saw your website, it gave me confidence that your company has the knowledge and experience we need”. Thanks for making sure my company is highly visible on the web and projects a professional image to those looking for our excavation services.
It truly is a pleasure working with Debra as a marketing coach and mentor. I love the fact that her style is very practical and focused rather than providing me with fluff. I have truly seen a difference in business since I have started working with Debra and I am grateful for this. I not only consider her my mentor but also a friend.
I started working with Debra in 2007 to get a better understanding of how to market my roofing business. I went through the Masterful Marketing 8 Step Program and found it to be extremely valuable. I not only developed a marketing plan and budget for my business, I also developed a new perspective on how to think about my business. In addition, Debra developed my online presence and I continually get new leads through my web site. I would highly recommend Debra for any contractor that wants to grow their business and stay in business.
I had been looking for over a year to find the right WordPress expert; I must have talked to twenty consultants. I received all kinds of advice and all kinds of cost estimates – which were all over the map. Not one of those companies that I had talked to did I feel comfortable with. But when I found Debra I knew from the get-go she was the WordPress expert I have been looking for; no nonsense, willing to talk, really friendly and she demonstrated a very good knowledge of WordPress. And she made some really great recommendations on our new WordPress design.
Debra helped us convert our two commerce-based websites to WordPress. Our website conversions were completed over a three-month period including the site preparations and the actual cutovers. After our sites went live, Debra was there when we had to tweak things. And during the follow-up months after our sites were up and running, Debra was available to assist me and answer any question that I may have had.
By moving over to WordPress, we are now saving $2,000 dollars a year since I now manage our sites. Our sales are up, our request for quotes are up and requests for our main PDF download are up. It has been a great experience moving over to WordPress. And it is all because of Debra. Do yourself a favor and at least set up an initial call with Debra to see if she too can help you!
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your time and expertise and knowledge whenever I run into problems with our website. No matter how big or small the issue is, you always treat it with the same importance. Thank you so very much.
I’m not certain that I possess the vocabulary to express my thanks. I feel like a genius finding you in this sea of mediocrity. I am presently counseling myself to learn to recognize when I need help in this online endeavor. You have no idea how much peace you’ve given me.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that I’m so happy with my website these days! It’s finally become what I envisioned years ago. The content is there, the organization makes sense, and the design is attractive. It’s getting a weight of authority about it and I’m delighted. Thanks again for all your help!
Before I met Debra, I hired another firm to design and optimize my website. SIX months later, I had a total of ZERO contacts! I knew I needed help, and I knew I needed a small-business marketing expert.
That’s when Debra stepped in.
Not only did she help me optimize the flow, content, and functionality of my website, but she provided extensive training on SEO concepts and implementation. Her practical, no-nonsense approach has helped my business tremendously. Within weeks of working with Debra, I started getting contacts on a regular basis, and over the past six months, I have signed three new clients!
Ironically, Debra’s services cost me 20% LESS than the first firm! I’m so happy that I chose to work with her, and I look forward to working with her in the future as my business grows.
I have worked with Debra for the past several years on several different projects. Debra has helped us in several areas year after year and her role with us expands each and every year. I find Debra to be insightful and helpful with our overall marketing including our web sites. Debra helped us design several different web sites as well as our catalogs. She works well and plays well with others including other web designers.
Her writing skills are exemplary and she is a very quick to pick up on your business and how to improve your message. Debra typically works long hours including weekends and has always met my deadlines. Recently Debra has been working with one of my close friends developing his web site and message as well as his brand. Debra developed his site, media and tag line in a little over 10 days and the result was an immediate increase in his business. You can’t really ask for more than that result from any business!
“Marketing Expert – On Point – Customer Service Excellence”
These are the words I am using to recommend Debra. She was instrumental in rebuilding my Dube Consulting website. Debra did much more than build a site, she optimized the website using highly refined search engine optimization techniques. I have top ranking when a potential client searches Human Resource Consulting in MA on Goggle. What more could I ask for? I highly recommend Debra’s work!
Debra is truly the master of social networking and internet marketing. From her useful daily advice, to her webinars and marketing packages, Debra can offer something for everyone’s budget. Debra walks the walk. Her newsletter and website reflect her professionalism and knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend her!
Debra is on the front of the curve when it comes to social network marketing and on-line marketing. In addition to this, she has a solid understanding of marketing strategy and implementation. I certainly recommend working with her for her expertise in marketing.
