Philip O'Brien, Partner, Forth Blinds
"Dane has been running our Forth Blinds Facebook Page since the start of 2019. Not only is he a pleasure to work with. but he writes engaging posts that our followers LOVE. More importantly, he takes away all the effort from us and just gets on with it, allowing us to concentrate on what we enjoy doing - measuring and fitting blinds for customers.
Our 'Likes' increased immediately when Dane started working on our Facebook Page. Our online profile has improved massively resulting in a noticeable increase in enquiries.
We have no doubt whatsoever in recommending Dane at Streets Ahead Social to any business (large or small), who are looking to outsource their social media activity."
Vikki Westwood, Director, Wellwood Communications
"We have been working with Dane for the past year to provide social media activity on Twitter and LinkedIn. He has also assisted us with press releases and specific marketing activities.
Dane creates interesting posts, comes up with new ideas, taking the hassle of social media away. His down-to-earth character also makes working with him very easy.
Since engaging with Dane we have seen an increase in followers and our brand awareness has improved and we are delighted with the excellent results.
If you want an expert in social media, someone who will bring ideas, create content and take care of your social media then I would highly recommend contacting Dane. You won't regret it!"
Barry Thomson, Sales Manager, Thomson Print and Packaging
"Prior to meeting Dane, we had no concept of how useful a tool social media can be for business. Following a wonderfully presented presentation full of useful information, we were able to re-structure our social media basis to have more engagement with our target audience.
We would highly recommend Dane and Streets Ahead Social to any business that is looking to gain more insight and understanding of how social media can work for their business."
Elaine Brown, Business Development Manager, Bright Green Business
"Our team recently attended a Streets Ahead Social Training Session. WOW! The training and follow up session has provided up with a 'Green Print Social Media Strategy', new understanding of techniques to use, and we've done our first ever Facebook LIVE! The added bonus was that the course was fun and Dane is so engaging and makes you feel like you can ask the 'silly questions.' I now understand hashtags! #SocialMediaSorted
Gin Lalli, Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, Gin Lalli Therapy
"Although I was happy to use social media on a personal level, I really wanted to approach it for my business from a more professional angle. I ended up just confusing myself and NOT enjoying it all...
...that is until I met Dane from Streets Ahead Social.
From the outset, Dane made everything so much easier for me to understand. He quickly understood what I was trying to achieve on social media and has guided me in the right direction.
I now feel much more authentic and proud of my social media profiles.
Dane knows what he is talking about and is passionate about what he does too.
I would highly recommend Dane at Streets Ahead Social for all your social media needs."
David Bartos, Advocate, FCIArb, Arbitrator
“I commissioned Dane to improve my LinkedIn Profile and provide me training on how to get the most out of LinkedIn for my business.
Dane was welcoming and friendly while being business-like. He listened carefully to the description of my business and my requirements.
As a result of working with Dane, I have seen an increase in visitors to my Linkedin profile and have made more valuable contacts for my business on the back of this.
To any business (or individual) who is looking to improve their social media presence and increase both awareness of their brand and the work coming from it - I would have no hesitation in recommending Dane at Streets Ahead Social to help you.”
Clare McGill, Founder, Ahimsa Yoga
"Dane was great at giving me advice on my Facebook Page and Instagram. He had done his research beforehand on my page so knew what I was trying to do and readily had ideas and input on how to get there.
My Ahimsa Yoga Facebook Page has really come to life since I used Streets Ahead Social and as a result I have had more interest in my classes.
I highly recommend Dane at Streets Ahead Social."
Dr Laura Wyness, Nutrition Research and Communication
"I had been doing a few social media videos and regular posts but often the impact of these was less than anticipated. Dane hosted a Facebook LIVE with me a few weeks ago which was extremely useful from a business point of view as well as being a fun experience!
Dane's approach was very professional and it was clear he had done his research on my business and background.
I now have far more awareness of how to effectively promote events and my services on social media and I have been steadily gaining followers on my Facebook Page as a result of Dane's sound advice.
If you are struggling with your social media strategy or just not seeing the results you expect with your current efforts to promote your business, I'd highly recommend contacting Dane for straightforward advice and help to ensure your social media strategy has a positive impact."
Rosemary Armstrong, Director, RJA Coaching & Development
"I found myself feeling frustrated with Social Media. You know what it's like ...'Does this work?', 'Does that work?' 'What works best?'
I contacted Dane for some help and got a consultation set up with him. Before meeting with me, he looked at my social media accounts and my competitors. He even took the time to read my latest blog!
Having arranged to work with Dane on an on-going basis, I now feel light hearted, organised and happy.
If you need some Social Media, PR or Marketing assistance, then I can strongly recommend, Dane Thomson at Streets Ahead Social.
A more friendly and down to earth chap I have yet to meet."
