Reviews


Whitney Keyes – Professor, Author of Propel: Five Ways to Amp Up Your Marketing and Accelerate Business, Strategist, Speaker
“Katie is a social media rock star. Having now worked with her for several months, I am extremely impressed with her professionalism and level of exceptional results she delivers for my business. Social media tools might be easy to use but to be effective your business needs clear goals and smart strategies behind the tweets and posts. Katie delivers above and beyond every time, from brainstorming new approaches and to implementing action plans. My return on investment – and impact – has been fantastic, directly leading to more business leads and other results.  Social media activities can be very personal and confidential, especially when building a personal brand. Katie is ethical, trustworthy and approaches every project with a high level of integrity. Plus she is just a blast to work with and a ton of fun! I wish I had had hired her sooner! She is easily one of the top vendors/partners I’ve ever worked with – even when I think back to when I worked in the corporate world at Microsoft.”

“I met Katie Kay at a Master Builders Association meeting, where I was impressed by her enthusiasm for helping others achieve their goals. Katie’s company, Virtually Savvy, is aptly named to describe the services she provides and her knowledge of online navigation. A session with Katie gave my social media confidence the boost I needed. Thank you, Katie!”

Sue Lundquist – Owner at I’m Thankful,LLC
“I have found Katie to be very professional, quick with results and even better was a consistent communication! I ask a question and I get an answer with quick professional turn around. Her proven skills, knowledge and trust are invaluable.”

Linda Enkema – Shutter Wonders
“I began working with Katie when I needed to add a shopping cart to my website. Little did I know that she would become my favorite computer wizard! She has solved numerous problems that arose at the relaunch of my site with a Word Press framework. I’m convinced that if I had worked with Katie from the beginning, my website would have had much smoother sailing. She is patient and personable. She is very skilled but also knows when to call in the help of other experts. She is a great problem solver and keeps deadlines. Katie did a fantastic Skype session with me, tackling a number of issues I was having. She is coaching me in the social media world, and I know there are good things to come there as well. Katie, you’re a life saver!”

John Lee – LeeCore Consulting
“Katie Kay is a very sharp and smart and helpful expert in the realm of Social Media Networks and Communication.  She has learned first hand the things that work/don’t work and so her knowledge is NOT theoretical or book learned – it is real world and effective! She works to learn about you first and then fit her expertise to your style – how utterly refreshing! Consequently, Katie shows off her clients well but is invisible to the public. She has come up the hard way and as such helps people who are getting adjusted to the new media formats! In a word, Katie is INVALUABLE!”

Amalia Martino – Blue Shoes Media  and FemCity Seattle
“I’ve hired Katie Kay and Virtually Savvy numerous times to train both our staff and clients at BlueShoes Media. Above all, she’s a great teacher and communicator and I’ve seen improvements in how we execute social media projects as a result of her guidance. Katie is personable, reliable and always a positive force, not to mention an expert in her field.”

Debbie Hadnett – Sunshine Accounting
“Katie was very helpful in providing instructions and input on setting up my LinkedIn.”

Juli Bacon – JB Consulting Systems (Vice-Chair Professional Women in Building Council at MBA)
“I had the opportunity to engage Katie as a speaker for the Professional Women in Building Council of Master Builders Association for a recent lunch event. Katie was our key note speaker and of course her topic was on making the most of social media. She did an outstanding job. She clearly knows her topic and she made her tips simple and easy to understand. In an age where technology has to be your friend it doesn’t always seem friendly. Katie helped us make peace with Social Media and made it seem fun and easy to manage. Well done Katie. I’m following you on Twitter for more tips. Juli Bacon, JB Consulting Systems, Vice-Chair Professional Women in Building Council”

Beckie McCann – Vintage Ambiance
“When I first started Vintage Ambiance, I had zero experience or knowledge about managing a website, or engaging in social networking.  Katie to the rescue!  She has done an outstanding job of teaching the ins and outs of going viral, has been extremely patient  during the learning process, and most importantly, has helped me gain the confidence that I need to try new things.  She’s a whiz at what she does, and with her as an asset, your business can’t be anything but successful!  Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!”

Gail Court – WFS Networks & Pawsitive Points
“I have learned so much working with Katie @ Virtually Savvy. She has helped me tremendously with my websites and connecting my businesses in the social media space. What I appreciate about her most is her patience and willingness to let her client do as much or as little as they want. She shares information and gladly explains, even to the novice, what, why and how she is working your project. Katie is incredibly responsive to her client’s needs. I have never had any reservations about using her for my businesses or recommending her to others!”
