What our clients say about us

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“Lesley provided social media management services to our charity for a number of years before changes in our structure and operational needs meant we needed to bring our social media in-house.

Lesley provided a fantastic and thorough service and helped grow our digital presence and brand online, as well as delivering on the commercial objectives of converting leads and driving income generating activities through the effective management of our limited advertising budget.

Although contracted as a freelancer, Lesley very much felt like an extension of our team, and embedded the ethos and charity tone of voice in everything that she did – I was always confident that our online brand was in safe hands.

I would recommend Lesley to any small business or organisation looking for a reliable, full service social media management company.”

Cate Gosling, Communications Officer

“Lesley is incredibly intuitive and gets exactly what we’re about as an organisation. She’s very reliable and I know her judgement calls will always be spot on – she’s really helped us progress our social media presence, and has been a fantastic guide for those of us here who weren’t au fait with certain processes. A really helpful, lovely person to work with.”

Sam Hayden, Events Co-ordinator

“Lesley Whiteman has worked with us for a number of years to help us raise our profile in the wider community. Her work in setting up a Facebook page and Twitter account for us has increased traffic to our website and has led to direct bookings onto classes and workshops, for which we are and have been very grateful. She is committed and passionate about the benefits that correct use of social media can bring to companies and organisations, and I can certainly recommend her to others who may be thinking of entering the world of electronic marketing.”

Roberta Meldrum, Director
The Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living

“I have worked with Lesley over a number of years. I am not technically or socially minded. She created my business presence on Facebook and Instagram, updated my personal profile and linked it all together as well as teaching me how to use it and giving me lots of valuable tips. She is always there when I ask for extra help. Just an email or a call away. When Covid hit and we all went “Virtual” again she was there, making time to teach me new tricks and giving me time to practice live videos, even ensuring I understood and could use Zoom properly. Excellent all round support. Always my first and only port of call for social media help. Thanks Lesley.”

Joylina Living with Soul

“Working at a customer facing organisation, we desperately needed a social media expert on board and quickly. Thank goodness we found Lesley! I know that I can trust Lesley fully to interact with our customers on a day to day basis in a professional and timely manner. Lesley has linked with a number of organisations that we would never have had the time to, and our network is now so much greater because of the work that she has done for us. I would recommend Lesley to anyone who needs expert help on social media (from a grown up!).”

“Have just seen latest notification about a Facebook comment and your reply thanking ‘sharing’ the post – then I noticed how many had shared, 99, that is amazing! So I would like to say a big thank you for what you have done, best Facebook social media I have ever had. Seen excellent posts with thoughtful grammar, correct text and images, quick and appropriate engaging responses … I could go on…”

Know It All

“Lesley has made a real difference in helping us to understand and implement a broad spectrum of social media initiatives across our food business. Its early days but we are really starting to benefit from a more open dialogue with friends of eatlunch and those customers that would like to be more aware of the wide range of food styles we can offer.
She has a fantastic awareness of the use of all social mediums and has provided fantastic value in creating content and communication across twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn-which she now manages in support of our promotions across the region for the eatlunch brand.
Above all Lesley is engaging, customer focused and brings a sense of fun to a difficult and time consuming subject.”

“Lesley, thank you so much for today. I found it absolutely brilliant and informative. Best raffle prize I have ever won!! An hour of your time, helping me understand the benefits of facebook and how to use it to help me move my business forward. We covered so much we had no time for twitter (for another day I think!). When you left I got down to business! I registered both jewellery and perfume businesses with Facebook and then took some photo’s of my products together. I hope to be able to launch it in a day or so with some great starting offers. I feel so much more positive now and now look to the “techno” future with a little less fear, thanks to you.”

Louise Clifton

“I have known Lesley for three years as a fellow professional in a private group who share ideas and knowledge. Towards the end of 2013 I outsourced some work to Lesley and I have been delighted with her organisational skills, diligence and attention to detail in every aspect of the work I gave her. I sincerely hope that our working relationship will continue to develop and I have no hesitation in recommending Lesley.”
