Testimonials

Here are kudos and kind words from some of the clients I’ve worked with.

Czarina Carden of First San Francisco Partners

FIRST SAN FRANCISCO PARTNERS

Services Provided: Content Development and Social Media Management

Melanie is a highly skilled and well-rounded marketer adept at managing content initiatives that have consistently driven traffic, engagement and leads for us. In the two-plus years I’ve worked with her, Melanie has seamlessly delivered an effective content strategy across our website, blog, social media, email and webinar channels. A kindred “data nerd,” she also diligently measures and identifies opportunities to optimize on those initiatives. She may have started as a newcomer to data management, but Melanie is now proficient in our business and industry, but most importantly, has a firm grasp on what content our audience is looking for and how (and where) they want to consume it. Melanie is a capable and reliable multi-tasker and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Rob Ellerman Realtor

ELLERMANVACATIONRENTALS.COM

SERVICES PROVIDED: WEBSITE MIGRATION TO WORDPRESS PLATFORM AND SITE REFRESH (COPY, IMAGES, ETC.)

My vacation rental properties’ website was needing time and attention, which I didn’t have. So Melanie stepped in to save the day. She worked with my hosting company to move the site from a plain-jane, GoDaddy template to a new look and new back-end (WordPress). Melanie freshened up images and copy along the way, too. These enhancements better reflects the market for my Florida rental properties, and I’m happy to have had her expertise.

Megan Neher of Megan Neher Public Relations

MNPR.BIZ

SERVICES PROVIDED: DEVELOPED CONTENT AND MANAGED PROJECTS FOR PR AGENCY’S CLIENTS

I met Melanie Deardorff on a professional association board many years ago where I was blown away by her imagination, diligence and energy. She only accepted success and excellence as a result. We worked together professionally for many years after that serving clients, and she brought that same level of honesty and excellence to her client work. Melanie has a tremendous background in marketing, web and social media, but it was her organization and personality that always made me happy to let Melanie lead a meeting because I knew she would wow the client and keep us on track.

Heather Kay, Your Body by Keto Coach
YOURBODYBYKETO.COM

SERVICES PROVIDED: DEVELOPED CONTENT FOR ONLINE COACHING PROGRAM

I initially connected with Melanie online over our shared love of the keto diet. This connection quickly turned into a business relationship when I hired Melanie to write a series of emails for my new keto-coaching program.

With Melanie’s understanding of the ketogenic way of eating, her writing skills and her ability to match my desired tone and voice for the emails, she was quickly able to write them on my behalf — and to my great satisfaction. This saved me a ton of time and allowed me to get my coaching website completed. Consider me a happy client!

Melanie worked hard to understand our mission and needs of our organization to prepare creative marketing pieces that highlight what we do.

Teresa Yockey of Time 2 Change Fitness for Women

Time2ChangeFitness.com

SERVICES PROVIDED: MANAGED Website, blogging and social media MARKETING

Melanie’s been managing my workout studio’s Facebook page since 2014. The content she creates is fun and creative, as well as informational about my studio. And she keeps herself up to date on the ever-changing world of social media, so I don’t have to be an expert.

When I rebranded my business in 2015 and needed a new website, I knew Melanie was the right person for the job. It turned out beautiful, and Melanie continues to manage it for me today … and she makes sure we get a new blog post out the door every month or so! 

Melanie’s always willing to brainstorm a new promotion for my studio and is a great sounding board for a small business owner, like me. I appreciate how Melanie gets to know her clients’ preferences and continually exceeds expectations, She is passionate and committed to making business owners succeed.

SERVICES PROVIDED: DEVELOPED CONTENT FOR JBSMITH’s CLIENTs

Partnering with Melanie for my clients is a dream. She is both a strategic thinker and a practical, hard worker. She challenges me and contributes in all the right ways, is willing to pick up the ball when needed and always meets her commitments. She is respectful of my client relationships, as well. What’s best is that I learn from her along the way, and we have constructive debates that make us both better consultants and writers.

I highly recommend Melanie as a partner and collaborator.
