What people are saying about Apiarity
We had a story to tell at the Bachauer and we had only a couple of months to do it prior to the quarterfinalists coming to Salt Lake City. I knew Stephanie had a digital marketing business and the only credential I knew of her was her charming, almost quirky personality. When we learned she was a pianist, we went all in with hopeful confidence. (We later experienced her expertise and of her broad knowledge and experience in many industries.) Stephanie Leishman listens. She asks lots of questions. She listens some more and follows up with more questions. We felt completely understood and we became more thorough in our own needs. Stephanie provided us a story arc for three different messages to three different audiences against a timeline. She not only got to the heart of our message, she also worked on the edges with different but relevant content. She sticks to schedules and she increased our social media audience reach and numbers. We will use her company again and build on what we've done. And, I would have gladly paid more for what she did.

I asked Stephanie to help me create and implement social media marketing plans for a core group of local small business owners in Boston. Stephanie advised me in the most professional way possible. She took the initiative to set up a meeting with me to gather all my needs and the needs of my clients. She created a quick and flexible work plan that we followed to serve my clients. She set up a clear vision for the work and next steps.
Her long-term vision was brilliant. Rather than just using social media as a quick and cheap tool to get more clients, Stephanie analyzed deeply what was important for the business owners to do first. She crafted an approach that focused on building community, which is one of the most critical ways for local businesses to survive, and the most challenging aspect of their marketing.
Once the vision was in place, Stephanie harnessed my on-the-ground knowledge to create concrete and actionable steps.
She realized that small businesses did not have time to meet too many times, and that they need all help tailored directly to their needs. Therefore, she asked me to talk to each client individually to prepare them for her advice. Once I did this, she then set up meeting for her and I to co-create the marketing plan with the client.
These sessions were eye-opening. Stephanie involved the client in her/his own social media marketing planning. She created exercises for the client to understand her/his community of current clients and potential clients.
Stephanie is positive, charismatic, has high energy. You will get a boost when working with her, for yourself and for your business.

Stephanie at Apiarity helped me develop a most beautiful, useful website! I so appreciated her insight on layout and content, her tech expertise, and her respect and support for my vision. As a decidedly non tech-oriented person, having an expert walk me through the process, step by step, was crucial. But even with all the hand holding and direction I needed, Stephanie definitely made it possible for me to feel like my website was my own creation. And she did it all in less than a week, from initial concept to publication. Apiarity, you are amazing!
