Recommendations are very important to us. We value each of our clients and the opportunity to have worked with them on projects.
Our most current listing of recommendations can be found on our LinkedIn Profiles noted at the bottom of this page. Here is a list of a few for you to review:
“Hollie and her team have handled many of our admin tasks including management of LinkedIn and other groups, blogs, and other social media accounts, sending messages and posting updates, and generally being available to assist our client work as well. She's been an invaluable asset to us and we have and continue to wholeheartedly recommend her work. UPDATE: Hollie and her team have been supporting our social media communications management for a year now. We hired her for a short stint then realized how much more we'd get done with her help. She's become an integral and trusted member of the team not only in communications, but also in the development of our learning management activities. I wholeheartedly recommend her work. She learns quickly, adapts well, and is a joy to work with. What more could I ask for?”
- Lori Ruff
“It was great to get to work with super stars like Hollie, especially when the projects get a little tricky. Hollie is the one that made sure things got done right, all the details were in place, it was lit up right! She made me look good too! Now she's taken networking to a whole new level, helping others in the industry use Social Media to gain an advantage in a really tough segment.”
- Mike O'Neil
“I had worked with Hollie in a past life years ago so I knew her to be a very hard working and conscientious person. We at X4 recently contracted with Hollie to have her shape and implement a social media strategy for us. As older guys, our leadership group thought our best bet was to let someone who knew better run with this, and Hollie was our choice. Well...Hollie absolutely did that, but in the process, through her dynamic and enthusiastic approach, got us to really see the value in actively participating in the program she designed for us. We now have our entire team enthusiastically promoting our brand and unique offerings through several social media platforms. Hollie has transformed the way we communicate with our partners and made a material and immediate impact on our business. Her work product is proffessional and timely, she is always more than prepared for us and goes well beyond agreed to levels of support. It really feels like Hollie is a part of the X4 family!”
- Curt Allen
“Wow - I had a Social Media Consultation with Hollie to create a stronger Key Word Optimization plan for my Social Media sites, and it was way beyond what I expected. Hollie gave me a ton of tricks, tips, and suggestions, but most importantly she brought it all to my novice level. I am excited to implement the ideas she gave me, and even more excited about the results I will receive. Thank so much Hollie for taking the time to help show me the importance of Key Word Optimization for my Social Media sites, and especially for helping me understand the need! I would recommend Hollie to anyone who wants to take their Social Media Marketing to the next level!”
- Patty Benton
“I met with Hollie last week for her to turn my social life around - social media life, that is - and she did. Not only did she give me good ideas with thorough explanations in a step-by-step process, but also gave me an informative take-away - her book. Even when questions have arisen since, I am able to email or call her and she responds in a timely manner with patience. What an asset she is and would be to any business wanting more presence on the web.”
- Andrea Mauro
“When Hollie and her team engaged us about Social Media, I knew this was something we needed to tackle, it was just a matter of figuring out the best way to do it. The ramp-up introduction into Social Media was eased by their experience and industry knowledge, which really helped us quickly leverage this medium into our business model. It has been great to increase our client and vendor visibility through this medium. Our communications have increased with our customers and vendors. Just even changing how our Meta is established on our website, formatting more efficient LinkedIn pages, Twitter and Facebook Company pages has optimized Google search engine (SEO) as well. We are also pleased with the management of the Social Media spaces each month. We highly recommend this service to anyone interested in adding Social Media to their business practices, engaging in retention and prospecting processes. We no longer have to worry about how to integrate this piece into our business. Thank you for all that you do for us!”
- Jeff Ott
“Hollie is amazing in her knowledge and ability to teach social networking in simple terms. I love that Hollie has a vision for the future and keeps things organized and is a great communicator. Her ability to bring out the best in a person is a true gift. I call her me Internet Angel. Thank you Hollie”
- Brigitte Ades
“Wow! I didn’t even realize that social media was important to my business but Hollie showed me differently! Hollie impressed me with the amount and knowledge and skills she has and took the time to explain everything and help me to understand the importance. She works efficiently and with a smile on her face! I am SO excited to see the future results of all her hard work! I highly recommend her to any business even if you don’t think social media is for you!”
- Dr. Jessica Keppy, DC
“Hollie has been a pleasure to work with. She has been very patience with us as we work through our social media campaign. She has gone above and beyond to help educate us on the social media pitfalls and to craft a strategy that will work for us. She has not tried to force feed us but rather help us understand why we should or should not engage in a certain media.”
- Troy McCracken
“I loved working with Hollie on my social media! I had been procrastinating for some time, but was overwhelmed and intimidated and had no idea where to start. Hollie broke it down so that not only did it make sense, but it was easy to understand, and easy to implement. She worked with me every step of the way, and made sure I understood and knew what to do before we went to the next step. Any time I had questions she had the answers, and was always prompt and detailed when getting back to me. Hollie is professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with, but the best part of working with her is the results. In less than 2 months I went from having no social media presence, to actually getting new business as a DIRECT result from all her efforts and coaching. New business from new customers, not just more business from my existing customers. I recommend Hollie every chance I get.”
- Reggi Coles
“Hollie assisted me in creating social media buzz for the launch of my novel, JACOB'S RETURN, and for its associated fundraising on Kickstarter.com. When someone searches LinkedIn for "fiction," "novel", or "literature", my profile appears in the top results, sometimes even as the first! In addition to helping me succeed, Hollie is a joy to work with.”
- Andrew Tertes

She has a way of taking a daunting task and making it manageable with great results. Hollie is a great person to boot.”

"We have tried other social media managers, but we felt like they weren't picking up on "our vibe," as it was apparent it was not our team making the posts. Hollie and her team mirrored "us" so quickly it blew our minds! They revamped our social media platforms making them both consistent and thorough. She's offered professional opinions while still honoring our wishes, and has creative ideas that we humbly admit to never thinking of. Her follow up and responsiveness are incomparable - absolutely worth the investment!"

- Penny Brenden
"Having watched my wife build this solid company over the last 7 years, I have been in awe of her brilliance, continued training and heart for educating others on best practices and strategies in social media. Her team of content writers and online managers do a superb job of keeping their clients happy with active brands in social media and it is wonderful to hear the stories of how they take a business with zero presence, build them out properly, develop strategies to keep these businesses visible and engaged. Social Media Advisor clients are loyal because of the attention they take to make each brand stand apart from their competition.
When the idea of this business came about, it was literally a vision built off of the premise that every business, no matter the size, could thrive with a solid online presence if you educate the business about consistency, ways to utilize and manage social media. It has been an honor to watch it grow into the business it is today and it is pretty cool to have been part of it from the very beginning. She has aligned the business with other top online specialists that provide her clients with many solutions that help keep them visible in the vast landscape of the "inter webs".
I recommend the Social Media Advisor Team to every business I encounter, not because my wife owns the company, but because of what they do to deliver top notch customer service to all of their clients. I would give them 100 stars if I could!
- Jeremy Clere
"There's a reason why Hollie Clere draws so many raves from people. She knows her social media stuff, what works and what doesn't and teaches various classes on social media to those who are interested. Everyone can learn a lot from Hollie's expertise and she truly wants all entrepreneurs to succeed. Heed her tips and advice and you will. I especially love Hollie's giving heart and how she combines her passion for life and business."
