Testimonials from small business owners
Shakira provided me with great media exposure. As an immigration law columnist, it helps to be a well-known source of information regarding immigrations issues. Shakira did a great job at getting me additional exposure for my regular newspaper columns in English and Spanish."
Professor Allan Wernick, Nationally Sydicated Columnist and NY Daily News Immigration Columnist
"Although I've known Shakira for several years, they never cease to amaze me with the creative marketing tactics they throw my way. As the author and self-publicist of the Coffee Mug Cakes Cookbook, I've found their insight incredibly beneficial. Thanks to Shakira's most recent idea, I managed to piggyback off of a competitor's feature on a national show by posting on the show's website. It gave me almost as many hits as those sites in which I'd actually been featured. Never would've sold those extra books without her!"
Chelsea E. Dodd, Coffee Mug Cakes, Author & Marcom Professional www.coffeemugcakes.com
"Shakira is the best. When I was a deputy executive director for a national professional association, Shakira was charged with the task of raising the profile of the association via public relations. She secured media placements for the association president and other members of our leadership in top industry publications. She also secured the president on the top 100 influential people list for a major industry publication several years in a row. Shakira also edited and wrote the association's quarterly 20 plus page newsletter,plus she wrote advertising copy and columns on behalf of leadership. Her contributions were tremendous and her work is top notch. Shakira did wonders in making me and the association look fantastic."
