What Scarletta's clients say

As a self published author I also run every aspect of my book production and sales as a business. Immediately, on first meeting Melanie, I realised here was a woman who could help me! As well as being thoroughly professional and knowledgable about every aspect of social media she talked me through other aspects of self promotion even right down to looking at my business cards. I came away from my day feeling invigorated and keen to put into place all the ideas I had collected.

I absolutely loved taking part in Melanie’s Pinterest Masterclass. I found the daily prompts were bite-size and manageable nuggets of valuable information with a logical flow.I felt I was being guided on a journey with a knowledgeable guide.This course has helped me pause and clarify my purpose for Pinterest and then effectively ‘clean-up’ my boards.

It was important that my website represented me and my values but I had no idea where to start with this. Mel is very perceptive and knew exactly how to draw the required information from me. She helped me to develop a website that was authentic and a true picture of my business, often going above and beyond her remit. Mel was extremely supportive throughout and encouraged me to be brave with my website and with Social Media.

Melanie has helped me to overcome my fear of social media, to understand what’s possible, to embrace the opportunity of engaging with my “tribe” on my terms and in a way that is authentic to me and my business. With Melanie’s expert guidance, my biggest achievement has been achieving a clear direction, developing a plan of attack and finally taking action!

Melanie is great to work with implementing a social media strategy for your business. She knows exactly what she’s talking about and pitches her knowledge at the right level allowing you to run with her ideas easily. She makes it her business to understand your business, looking at your services as well as the competition and comes up with the social media plan that is different from the rest.

I highly recommend anyone struggling to sort out how social media can be used to best market their services, to contact Melanie sooner rather than later. We worked together via Skype across continents, the experience was valuable and pleasurable. Melanie has a way of helping you really focus on the best social media strategy for your business. She helped me navigate the somewhat unfamiliar waters of social media, and develop a plan to define and market my niche effectively.

I enjoyed working through the Social Media Map ecourse. It has really helped me to think how I want to express my business and personal brand across the social networks. As a result I am making changes to my website and creating a strategy to build my social media presence. I have felt very supported by Mel on my journey and I highly recommend this online course if you are struggling with social media and would like a step-by-step guide on what you need to do, how and when.

Working with Melanie was a pleasure. She knows her subject area inside out, and was able to give expert and value add guidance to the business. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

I had a social media strategy tutorial with Mel to help me get clear on how I can be more effective and consistent. I knew quite a lot about social media but felt unfocused in my approach. After my session I know what I need to do and have implemented the things we discussed. Mel is great to work with I trust her judgement and experience and am inspired by her own story.

The biggest takeaway I learnt about Pinterest for my business is there are a myriad of ways of using it. I wasn’t sure how relevant it was going to be for my service-based business. I realise it can be invaluable in working on the branding process with clients for their website projects and encourage visitors to my blog. Thank you Melanie for a well structured course in bite-size modules that was easy to implement on my own.

Melanie ran a workshop for us on How to Create Business Opportunities Using Social Media and adapted the content to include our specific requirement of using social media for recruitment purposes. The workshop covered all of our requirements and more and has given us direction in how we can better maximise the use of social media. I would definitely recommend Scarletta Media to others.

Melanie delivered a 1-2-1 completely tailored to my exact needs. Mel taught me at least five things, inspired, encouraged and showed me how to integrate my ideas with her new ones. I highly recommend to anyone looking for training in Twitter, Linked In, Facebook and social media. Hang on, I already have. I went to a client meeting, and promptly handed over her card.

With an active social media presence already at L’ortolan we were looking for some training to help us integrate the various in house Twitter accounts, Facebook and blog and use them more effectively. Melanie pitched the training at just the right level and gave us some great ideas to focus on. Since the training we doubled our Twitter following and engagement on Facebook has increased dramatically. I thoroughly recommend Melanie.

We had absolutely no idea about social media when we engaged Mel’s services and she is exactly what we needed! She is friendly and personable, very knowledgeable about her subject, and takes time to explain everything in layman’s terms – two or three times if necessary! We all enjoyed working with her and would thoroughly recommend her.

Melanie has been invaluable in helping us to kick start our social media campaign. Her personable, down to earth nature made learning easy and she was happy to share her skills, making every step easy to understand and implement. We are confident to ‘go it alone’, knowing she will always be there to offer us help, support and on going training as and when we need it.

Thoroughly recommend.

I met Melanie at a Networking Meeting where she delivered a very succinct and useful presentation, in a short time frame, on social media. Her knowledge and ability to put it across in a way for all the audience to understand was excellent. She left us in no uncertain terms what we could do immediately to improve our social media skills!
