Learnt a bit more about Twitter", even though I use it already [comment after a short presentation on social media marketing for small business]

I am a naturally suspicious person and it took some time to accept what Ian had to say about the internet and social media and how it would really work for me in business. How wrong can you be! That was nearly two years ago.
Finally, I attended a couple of seminars which hi-lighted Ian's expert knowledge in the field of social media and we progressed from there. A genuine example (without having to make sales calls or do any mail shots etc, they approached me):
This week alone I have had two new clients come on board, with another two potential clients scheduled to meet today and tomorrow.
Thank you Ian, it been an extremely valuable learning curve for my business and profit margin. You have been so patient and understanding - I should have listened sooner! I have recommended your services previously and will continue to do so.

Ian has worked very hard in helping me use social media to promote my business. It is very important now days to use social media as the likes of Yellow pages & Thompson Local are a thing of the past.
Ian has a vast experience in his industry and it certainly shows when he sits you down and starts explaining how Google rankings work, and how to improve your chances for people to notice you.
It’s so simple but you have to put the work in to achieve the best results.
I can now use Twitter and thanks to Ian’s patience, (he certainly needed a lot with me) my company is up to date with social media marketing.
Thank you Ian, and I would thoroughly recommend your services to anybody who wants their business to grow.

IAN has worked with JFP for 6 months. We asked him to introduce us to Social Media so that JFP would be able to try it out and see if there were any business advantage. JFP was sceptical about it's value at the start.
Ian has shown great patience and put in a lot of effort to " connect" JFP on social media and explain the "what and how" to the Partners.
We are connected and we do now have a basic understanding of the "what and how". We are now on Facebook and have a blog set up on our website which we are using and Ian is also helping connect us with.
Whilst it is early days to assess the benefits Ian has been successful in getting us to engage with and use social media. We have actually
recommended him to one of our clients as well. His persistence and patience has been excellent.
"Ian has been a tremendous help in setting up and maintaining my social media operations. He understands and responds to my needs, often before I have realised they exist, and is always good fun to work with. - David, novice2scratch"
We asked Ian to advise and coach us on our marketing and business strategies and his help and expertise has been invaluable in getting us on the right track. He has worked as an integral part of the team helping us to deliver our business objectives in a tangible, measured way. Ian has made a huge impact and we look forward to his continuing input.

Ian has worked tirelessly to promote the members of BNI Camberley and he understands how to use Social Media to get the business message across, whether by Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin. Very professional and dedicated.
I would like to thank Ian Hardacre for the wonderful seminar he gave our group yesterday on social media and the various platforms available and how to use them properly. There were 20 different businesses attending and all gave rave reviews. Not only did you make it educational but fun as well. I would highly recommend Ian and I look forward to working with him in the future
