"John connected me with a well qualified virtual assistant that understood all my needs and proactively moved me forward despite my lack of technical background, time and understanding of what was needed. He reported to me daily. He presented attractive examples of what he was recommending and implemented all the steps necessary to make it happen. Suddenly, without major input or decisions from me, I had a new Wordpress website that rocked with updated design, photos, resources, and invites to events, blogs, and videos. The end results were better than I could imagine. I was consulted all the way, but I realized I was dealing with a professional who know what I needed and wanted to make it happen ASAP.
My hired VA revitalized my LinkedIn and Facebook presence with new contacts, blogs, and re-designed my website. In short, with John’s overall management, the VA totally transformed my stuck social media campaign into a vibrant marketing tool. All of this was accomplished in less than a month. I’m now on the right track for my social market efforts.
I have a business that consults with Boards, executives, investors, non-profits, etc.-Boardroom Performance Group and published a book “God in the Boardroom: Why is Christianity Losing Market Share?” With John’s overall direction and the Virtual Assistant's ability, my business and Kingdom objectives through social media are definitely on track. All the key metrics have improved significantly and I receive compliments from my contacts. If you are frustrated with your progress in implementing your social media campaign, I highly recommend John Davern and Virtual Assistant Talent to help you quickly and cost effectively reach your objectives."
