Kelly brought invaluable insights and a unique third party perspective to our website’s UX, SEO, email segmentation strategies, and our use of prospecting tools that will have an immediate, positive impact on our new business methodologies. She is a pleasure to work with because she is very approachable yet unafraid to speak her mind and stand behind her recommendations. Kelly brings credibility to these recommendations because she’s utilized them in successfully building her own digital marketing business. She brings state-of-the-art digital prowess to the practical demands of modern digital business and marketing communications.
The reason I hired Kelly versus the hundreds of other consultants out there is that when it comes to scaling an agency, she’s actually done it. She built her own highly successful agency piece by piece, and that kind of experience is invaluable. But not only does she share her knowledge; she holds me accountable – and I’m already seeing results. If you’re an agency owner that’s looking to grow, I highly recommend her.
I met Kelly through the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program and took an immediate liking to her as a person—one factor that helps me decide whom and whom not to work with. After we graduated, she and I communicated frequently and I engaged her as a consultant to help our company provide an effective website. After a few phone meetings, email exchanges, and in-person meetings, we launched djusadesign.com. Kelly was amazing to work with and her work speaks for itself.
Not only is Kelly an expert digital marketing strategist, she’s also an outstanding designer. The brand identity she created for The Open Spirit is visually captivating and has a strong emotional resonance with clients; she captured our vision perfectly. She’s very detailed oriented, professional and gets the job done efficiently.
For the past year, we’ve been working on recreating our website. Although we entered the process with a plan, there was something missing… and that something was Kelly. She brought our plan together in a cohesive, organized fashion with a brilliant combination of focus and expertise. We’re grateful to have Kelly on our team not only for the creation of the site, but for the implementation of SEO and website strategy as we move forward.
There are a few things Kelly consistently brings to the table: drive, focus, aesthetic, authenticity, intellect, self-awareness, and good instincts. She always creates a feeling of trust and confidence. Not only is she an incredible individual talent, but she is also a great person to work with. She is direct, open, eager, flexible, straightforward, and follows through. She is reasonable, listens, asks good questions, and is always realistic. For any business or nonprofit consulting need, find a way to work with her.
My biggest fear in re-positioning and relaunching NextCrew’s website was how someone would be able to put this together who is not part of my company. With Kelly’s help, it turned out much better than I could have ever imagined. The entire experience was seamless due to Kelly’s establishment of processes, responsiveness, creative direction, and vision—and most importantly, keeping me on track. I do not think I would have trusted anyone other than her to take on this project—or our digital marketing strategy going forward.
Kelly is a remarkable talent who has helped us think through a short and long term approach to our web site. She has consistently gone above and beyond the scope and both her technical, design and user experience insights have been impressive. Case study »
