Hear From Our Clients
I have been working with Heather for about 6 months developing and executing my social media. She has been an asset to my team and needs very little direction. She makes the time to review my campaigns and sit face to face and explain to me how things are going and answer any questions I have . Would highly recommend Van Patter Group – C&G Solid Wood Furniture
Laureen VanGroningen, C&G Furniture
We have been moving since 1972 and we are ok with Boxes and Chairs but when it comes to the new way of promotion and advertising well we were a lil lost. Heather has been a breath of fresh air within the Mike the Mover group and has taken our Company to the next level. Our customers have responded in a positive way and our online presence has never been this good, we wish all of our projects were as successful as what Heather has done for us and our Company.
