All testimonials

We would like to reiterate our thanks for a really interesting session. The few hours we spent with you definitely met the objectives we had in mind and will inform our approach moving forward —not only on social media — but also more broadly.

You helped us look with fresh eyes at our audience, something which has developed greatly since the Hospice became independent last August. The session helped us to uncover what we need to do, to gain attention and attract engagement. We appreciate this will be a lengthy journey and we really are grateful for your input at this early stage. We’re looking forward to putting our strategic plan into action!

Appointing Something Beckons in 2014 is probably the best investment in our business that I have made in my 6 years as MD. Sara has helped us on a journey from ‘being quietly good at what we do’ to ‘being noticed and contacted for being good at what we do’.

In2itive provide quite complex software solutions for e-learning and online training and our sales cycle would typically have had a gestation period of 6-12 months. Thanks in no small part to the work that Sara has been doing for us we’ve just closed a deal inside 2 months. We are also generating more high quality leads than we have ever had at any point in our history and this is because Sara’s work has extended our visibility and enhanced our credibility. Sara has helped us to take the “who we are” and “how we do things” onto the web and has created a website and content marketing and social media strategy that I’m truly proud of - and that is delivering measurable results.

Sara led us from initial concept to implementation and delivery - and continues to lead us on the evolution of our website, content marketing and social media strategies. Sara has become a highly valued business partner and it just happens to be a bonus that she is also an absolute delight to work with!

Following an in depth consultation process, Sara developed a series of bespoke workshops that informed the direction of social media activities for our brands and marketing team. The workshops raised interesting questions that went beyond social media itself. They left the team with a better understanding of this fast evolving area of modern business.

Sara at Something Beckons recently provided us with a bespoke training program on social media which was concise and fully met our needs. The sessions were insightful, interesting and provoked valuable discussion amongst our staff who have benefited greatly from them. Everyone was left feeling energised and the program has greatly improved our social media marketing. We would not hesitate in recommending Something Beckons to any business who wishes to expand their social media marketing capabilities.

Sara’s social media training modules have been successful, educational and enjoyable. The team has gained valuable insight into the fast evolving world of social media and will be able to pass on this new found knowledge to the benefit of our clients. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone wishing to discover more about these new emerging technologies.

Sara delivered some social media training after I attended a seminar she gave at the Chamber of Commerce. What particularly impressed me was that Sara took the time to sit down with me before the training to really understand what it was the firm needed help with and then created a bespoke training package tailored around my specific needs rather than delivering an ‘off the shelf’ solution. Sara’s training was excellent, she went at a perfect pace for me - I can thoroughly recommend her.

If you want to talk to someone who REALLY understands the clients needs when it come to social marketing . Do not go any further than Sara. I have been on many courses regarding social media but never really got it. Four hours with Sara totally changed my mind and out look. Thank you Sara for such an informative session.

Within her training she has helped to understand our business and how best to use social media to our advantage and also to keep it interesting for those to read as well us for us to use.

Sara delivered an engaging and very helpful session on social media to our Ignite Peterborough members. She considered carefully their positions and goals in business and tailored the session specifically to them. I have had nothing but great feedback from all of them and it has really achieved the aim of giving them a better understanding of how to utilise social media as a tool for their businesses. Thank you, Sara for giving up your time to support young entrepreneurs in this city!

I have had the pleasure of working with Sara after meeting through a mutual acquaintance. Sara writes and delivers fantastic workshops, which many of my clients have benefitted from, on the Destination Digital Business Support Programme. I would not hesitate to recommend Sara, and would welcome the opportunity to work together again.

Sara and Luke have been extremely helpful throughout the entire process of developing PSC’s new website. Having received training on how to fully manage it, along with SEO and blog writing I’m now confident that our website will bring in more enquiries than ever! On behalf of PSC, I’d like to thank you for all your help and guidance and have you know that I’d recommend you to business associates and friends alike.

Working with Something Beckons has been an absolute pleasure! They turned a potentially complex website design into something user friendly and intuitive.

Double thumbs up from us at Autoworld!”
