Vysia Duffield, campaign manager at London-based digital media agency Unruly Media:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ellee on several occasions and have found her to be a genuinely nice and pleasant person with an amazing amount of energy and enthusiasm. Her blog is also fantastic, content-focused and above all, filled with well written, relevant and insightful articles. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her work and her professionalism.
“To demonstrate how Ellee knows her stuff, I’ve just came back from a WOMMA UK (Word of Mouth Marketing) meeting and I was really surprised that there were so many PR people who didn’t really know what Twitter is! I have a great respect for Ellee for being so tech savvy and active on so many social media media platforms. She is definitely one in a million!”
Ian McKendrick, social media strategist:
“Ellee did a fantastic job of helping us to promote the launch of The Business Hub when we expanded onto a new radio station. She provided written copy, blog articles, video and press coverage through her extensive personal network, as well as promoting the event through her social networks.
“Within minutes of her press release being published we experienced many hundreds of hits to our website, and so many downloads of our show podcasts that it almost brought our web server down!
“Ellee certainly knows her stuff, and is probably one of the most connected networkers I know, and is able to instantly raise awareness almost at the click of a mouse. She was a pleasure to work with, highly professional, and absolutely thorough, and without hesitation she imparted her wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure we didn’t miss a thing.
“I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ellee, and we’re looking forward to working with her again to help us promote future events.”
