"Learning from Frankie is a true joy. She is such a delightful, warm and friendly presence and her knowledge and technical ability is off the charts.

 

In the final stages of the course, Frankie helped me assemble a video of a book launch. She teaches in a way that makes challenging material easy to absorb. It was phenomenal to work with her and watch the film emerge in a short period of time. Her sense of what should go in for overall structure, flow and marketing purposes was unerring.  And it looks beautiful and very professional.

 

She has become one with the craft and art of teaching how to make smart phone films, a true master. I couldn't recommend her more highly! "

"I highly recommend doing a course with Get Ahead Media. In today's fast moving digital marketing world there have been many times I wished I could pull together a quality video quickly and easily using my smart phone to post promptly on social media - but just didn't know how to go about it. That's where Get Ahead Media comes in - they help you gain really useful professional skills and technical insights that can enhance your productivity and business profile."

"Get Ahead Media taught me all I need to build my social media presence and stand apart from the crowd. Using my new iPhone 6S, I was determined to up-skill and Get Ahead Media's "Smartphone Video Production" and "Mastering Social Media" courses helped me do just that, in a really fun and exciting way. Francesca, who ran my course, is very experienced, and was really kind and patient with newbies like me. Best way to build your brand and learn how to get ahead in the digital age."

Social Media & Facebook Ads Management Testimonials

"The ads tripled the number of new visitors to our meetings, which we are super stoked about. It has been a great return on investment"

"Frankie worked with us to really get our facebook ads to have a consistent message, targeted at our audience and be warm and welcoming which was important to us. From the beginning, the ads tripled the number of new visitors to our meetings, which we are super stoked about. It has been a great return on investment and I highly recommend anyone thinking about FB advertising - especially if you are nervous to just go ahead and start a conversation - you won't regret it."

"As a direct result of the social media marketing, I was able to engage a whole new audience who loved the lead magnet that Francesca advised me to create, and I was able to run two very successful trainings."

"The thought of doing a social media campaign was just so overwhelming. I just didn’t know where to start, what to do or how to do it.  When it comes to FB Ads Management, well, that wasn’t even on my radar. I didn’t even know what that was let alone how to do it.

 

I brought a new Belief Change training into New Zealand, and I wanted to be able to let people know that I was trained in this and was now running online trainings.  Having invested time and money in learning and developing this new training, I wanted to make sure that it was a profitable training. Without a social media presence for the new training, nobody in NZ was going to know about it.

 

Because I was overwhelmed by what to do on social media and how to run FB Ads, I contacted Frankie to help me get the message out about the new training.  As a direct result of the social media marketing, I was able to engage a whole new audience who loved the lead magnet that Francesca advised me to create, and I was able to run two very successful trainings. 

 

Prior to hiring Frankie, I had no idea of how to run a social media campaign, let allow manage FB ads. As a result of working with Frankie, my social media profile around this training has risen and I have increased ‘likes’ on my page due to the work she has done."

"I can’t recommend Frankie highly enough – she doesn’t just do a job, she partners with you, taking away the hassle and leaving you feeling incredibly supported."

Frankie is amazing!

 

We had no idea how to run ads and campaigns but wanted to increase our list and marketing reach for some specific products.  Frankie’s now helped us out with several social media and Facebook Ads campaigns and makes it all so easy.  She knows what questions to ask to formulate a comprehensive strategy and really takes the time to get to know our business and goals. 

 

Frankie has a wide range of skills and has even taken charge of the design aspects of the campaigns.  Her experience means she can pull everything together quickly and give us expert advice on what options/approach to go with. 

 

During the campaigns she keeps a close eye on everything and gives regular updates and suggestions for making adjustments.  In fact, in our latest campaign she achieved a 30% reduction in the cost per lead, from the previous one! 

 

I can’t recommend Frankie highly enough – she doesn’t just do a job, she partners with you, taking away the hassle and leaving you feeling incredibly supported.
