Suzanne is a Des Moines transplant who has realized the Power of being a Free Agent. Well-versed in many and varied skills, she has a passion for helping organizations and people achieve their potential. Suzanne = wife, traveler, multi-linguist, triathlete and cook.
My lucky day was when I met Suzanne Hull at a local coffee shop for one of her no-charge Office Hours sessions. I told her my social media failures and frustrations as well as what my vision was for how this could be a part of my marketing. Suzanne put together a step-by-step action plan on paper for my business. Since that day several months ago, going at a pace I could manage, Suzanne has coached me in how to use Twitter, Facebook, my Blog, LinkedIn and an E-newsletter to further my business. I have seen measureable, positive results in new customers finding my business and with how my business is positioned in my target market. I feel confident I can use the tools Suzanne has shown me to keep my Social Media presence positive and growing.
