Toot toot! Today I’m blowing my own trumpet and writing about some lovely things that have been said about me. It’s always hard in this business to pitch yourself to people who don’t know your work. You can direct them to websites and social media accounts, but personal testimonials and quotes, I hope, do the job even better and serve the greater purpose of inflating my ego to unmanageable levels. Yay!
Sometimes you get some great feedback because a project has come to an end.
"We would like to thank you for your hard work and creative flair with the blog writing and social media."
Sometimes it comes out of the blue when you’re being recommended for a piece of work.
"Jenni Collins is a social media expert, an excellent writer, (and) an amazing designer."
Sometimes it is the result of a great partnership over several years.
"Jenni is reliable, dependable and passionate. I know our business is in safe hands when she works on a project for us. Her creative flair and honesty is something that stands her apart from other marketeers I have worked with."
And sometimes it comes from a mutual love of cake.
"Jenni is a marketing guru and if clients want to keep her happy they must provide cake."
Wherever it comes from, I always feel very honoured that people have recognised me with words on paper (ok, screen). There are very few (and no current) clients that I have worked with that I haven’t liked and respected, so a mutual love-in is always, always appreciated.
