raves & reviews
Debbie has been my mentor for the past 7 months while I’ve been growing my business Cookie - I can’t recommend her enough! She has given me so many useful tips and tricks to grow my business on social media as well as being completely honest with me if I’m just doing something wrong. One of the points being that it’s fine to stop working sometimes! Her advice and support has not only made me a happier person in myself but has resulted in a quadruple in turnover since we first started working together. What more could you ask for! An absolute pleasure working with her!
“Working with Debbie has been an amazing experience - she makes every session fun and creative, which I adore. It’s like walking into a sweet shop as a child, there’s just so much she can support with and I got the ultimate “pic-n-mix” experience tailored to me and my business. Every session was jam packed with information, advice, support and followed up with solid action. Debbie is a genius at all things social media and has been key to me not only using it more for promotion but also helping me see the benefits in using it to build real lasting relationships with people. I would definitely recommend Debbie to anyone thinking of working with her, she’s unique and so very different to any other coach out there that I’ve come across.”
I have just completed the Clarity & Confidence course with Debbie and it’s been just brilliant. Each session was adapted to what my business needed at the time and after each session I came away with not only a huge list of things to do, but with actions that I actually wanted to do, and usually completed within 48 hours of our meeting, I was that motivated and inspired. I really feel that not only has my business got a brand new website, I know so much more about social media, how to position my business, and more importantly, myself. I cannot recommend Debbie more highly.
I recently had 5 digital marketing coaching sessions with Debbie and have come away with an incredible amount of information and new, exciting ideas. More importantly I also now have the strategy to implement the ideas and a clear plan of what to do next which has been invaluable. I’ve already passed Debbie’s details onto at least 5 people who I think would hugely benefit from her insights and coaching and hope to collaborate on other projects with her in the future. Debbie is a real expert in her field and also a pleasure to spend time with.
I would just like to say how AMAZING Debbie Clarke from debbiedooodah is. Just got back from a three hour 121 session , worth every penny. Would highly recommend. FANTASTIC. Wish I’d met her sooner.
When I had my first session with Debbie I was a social media virgin with no experience and feeling pretty uncertain about how/where to start. Debbie tailored sessions to suit my pace (slow) and requirements (needy). With Debbies help and patience I’ve gained confidence and know how with Facebook and am finding ways of using it to suit me. I’m very pleased with the progress I’ve made and look forward to another round of coaching with Debbie before too long. Debbie is fun to work with, very knowledgeable and generous with her knowledge. I recommend coaching with her wholeheartedly.
Debbie is nothing short of a genius. After attending her Facebook and Instagram workshop a couple of weeks ago I soon realised I needed her on board to help me shake up, shape and grow my business. Today at our first one to one, she helped me within the first 15 minutes of sitting with her, to REALLY take stock. I am so pleased she is helping me to take my fledgling business, Skin Elixir to the next level. Thank you.
I had a three-hour social media one to one with Debbie last week and, three days after, my head is still reeling with information and ideas. Debbie was incredibly insightful and, after I’d explained where I’m at with my business and social media, she managed to get right to the nub of my work issues. She helped me work out what I could do to move my business forward even though in the end this had little to do with social media! (Though of course she also gave me great tips for that as well) The session was invaluable - I’m so grateful! Thank you.
I’ve been to Debbie’s workshops and had a number of individual Social Media & Marketing tutorials with Debbie now. Each one has been truly essential to helping me working out my marketing structure with my jewellery business Elouise Makes. Marketing is not my strong point, but things never seem quite as scary once you’ve had a hour with Debbie! She really knows her stuff and I can’t think of anyone in this area who could be more helpful or who I would feel as comfortable working with! Thanks Debbie!
I’ve just completed the Clarity & Confidence programme with Debbie. I loved working with her. The sessions are dynamic and informative - 2 hours fly by. Debbie is generous sharing her experience and you really can ask all your ‘stupid’ questions. There was lots of straightforward advice and if you’re remotely confused about social media you won’t be. There is a process but you can steer it to meet your needs. And as she’s a fellow small business owner that helps too.
That was the best visiting lecturer we’ve had all year!
I find Debbie to be very patient. She has a way of putting you at ease and in no way made me feel silly due to my basic lack of understanding about social media. It was also fun!
Debbie’s no nonsense, easy fun style has helped me get over a huge block in using Facebook. I am now able to connect and maintain communication with my Vital Women network more effectively. It has meant that I am able to reach and respond, creating greater connections and ways to support. Not only has this increased my confidence and skills as I now know how to set up a closed Facebook group and use Facebook advertising. Thank you heaps for this difference.
Working with Debbie has made us more strategic with our social media. She has helped to save us time and gain clarity and focus on what we should be posting for our business. I’m amazed at how quickly we engaged large numbers of followers and how much more engaged they are than before. Debbie is a genius in her line of work and I would not hesitate to recommend her for helping your business succeed in the online world.
Debbie worked with us from the launch of OurCamden building a strong following on twitter and facebook, creating content and a marketing strategy to support our growth. Always available, dedicated and fun she was an asset to our team.
It was refreshing to meet a lady that operates her business and conducts herself in an authentic way, coming from the heart. Debbie radiates enthusiasm, has massive amounts of courage and wisdom which shines through.
I went on Debbie’s Ideal Customer workshop earlier this year. At the time I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use what I learned. Subsequently when my business partner and I were setting up our Greek food business, Elia, we used the worksheets that Debbie had provided to come up with “customer personalities” for our business. This really helped us to think about how we were going to describe our products, and reach our target audiences. Debbie is full of enthusiasm, knows her stuff, and always willing to share her expertise and knowledge with others.
My workshop with Debbiedoodah was the first time I’ve EVER engaged with social media as a serious business tool (I know, I’m hanging on to another era). But not only did Debbie make the workshop lively, inspiring and creative, she also woke me up to the realisation that yes this is essential but also something to have fun with and actually enjoy! Hooray! It’s like I crossed a barrier and arrived in the modern world of fun, creative business. I get the feeling that Debbie is passionate about enabling others to stand up and celebrate what they do.
I had a digital review with Debbie and it was fantastic! I was looking for some direction and help with how to maximise my time and effective use of digital tools for my business. This is exactly what Debbie delivered and more. She clearly knows her stuff and the session was packed with useful tips and I came away with loads of ideas. I’m so excited! Would highly recommend. Thank you!
I had a fantastic 3 hour session with Debbie. First of all what an inspirational and lovely person. Debbie has given me advice and so many tips to help with our company and it’s social media strategies. Many of them should amazingly save us time by being more organised and she introduced us to tools available to help us to do this. We are working to implement them in to the every day running of our company. I’d highly recommend working with her to everyone. Thank you again Debbie.
Debbie is most certainly a marketing genius! She is so helpful and I love her honest, no frills approach. She has a genuine desire to help businesses achieve their potential. Thank you Debbie for your support and expertise
I went to see Debbie to help me ostensibly with my Google Ads for my business, but she showed me how to improve my website, FB posts and how to tweak my Google Ads without spending any more money. I am booking another appointment!
Since starting to work with Debbie my confidence increased, the number of clients I have has increased and in turn I’ve increased my rates. She really knows her stuff and is a pleasure to work with. I look forward to our sessions and leave feeling inspired and motivated.
I met Debbie a bit unsure about how to do some of my social media marketing & came out feeling armed and excited with loads of ideas and tips on how I can improve my marketing strategies. Debbie is great at seeing where you want to go and guiding you to your specific brand/marketing goals with the relevant tools. She is friendly and approachable, and great to work with. Thank you!
I was very privileged to have a 121 session with Debbie on blogs and wow was it useful! Debbie is able to impart a great deal of knowledge and expertise in an easy to understand format. I went away not just with lots of ideas, but also links to tools and resources that will help me to build a successful blog. I will definitely be seeing Debbie again in the future and highly recommend anyone considering venturing into blogging (and let’s face it, if you’re not then you should be!) to get in touch with Debbie first as it will save you a great deal of time and stress.
Working with Debbie was great - had an amazing consultation the other day and can’t wait to get our rebranding project fully underway. Intensive, refreshing and fun!
3 hours of guidance, pointing me in the right direction and if I wasn’t quite getting it, good old fashioned spelling it out. At the end I was not only clearer on how to and why to interact on social media but also felt clearer about my business and the role I play in it. Head has been buzzing with ideas ever since, no doubt there will be a part 2 to this story. Thank you Debbie!
I wanted to let you know how helpful it was. I have been to lots of social media training events...(but I’m embarrassed to say) I dozed because they weren’t engaging. Last night was a hoot. I really enjoyed your style and your energy. The 2 hours were packed with information. All good stuff and no boring flannel.
A huge thank you to debbie for your support with the launch of The Littlehaven Nursery. Your support has significantly increased our presence on social media platforms & ensured confirmed registrations before we even launched our local marketing strategy! Amazing!
‘I attended the Social Media Savvy workshop today which was fantastic , came home feeling so confident and motivated . I was able to ask stupid questions without feeling stupid and was very entertained, which I wasn’t expecting. Debbie you should do stand up.’
debbiedooodah was our chosen digital marketing delivery partner for our nationally recognised conference; #StomachThis, which took place in the House of Commons. Debbie delivered beyond expectations, getting #stomachthis trending on twitter for 2 days.
Through Debbie’s expertise in social media and marketing we have now grown an online community. Our Facebook page has increased likes by more than 70% and our twitter page has increased followers by 680%!
Debbie was instrumental in raising the Nottingham Apprentice Hub profile, quadrupling our Twitter following and doubling our Facebook network. Debbie is professional, supportive and excellent at what she does. She goes above and beyond to ensure you get the results you need!
Fascinating workshop hosted by Debbie Clarke. We are now surrounded by social media, choosing the right platforms to connect with your audience and build relationships are just some of the decisions facing companies. I came away from the workshop enthused about the next stages of my business, will stick with 3 platforms for now. Linkedin, Instagram and Twitter. Have already signed up to Buffer. First workshop to finish the term with a round of applause for the host…says it all!
I have used Debbie’s professional services for over 3 years and and most recently she supported me in the preparation of RSA East Midlands Annual Conference. Registration of interest increased by nearly 250%, converting to an actual attendance increase of over 175%. Our Twitter following increasing by over 300%, and over 600 Tweets using our #PowerToCreate hashtag, reaching a global audience of 94,000. Debbie was a real pleasure offering creativity, flexibility, sheer hard work and commitment, and enabling us to take our conference to a whole new level.
‘Great workshop, so much practical advice and immediately applicable advice. Love your workshops!’
Yesterday I attended a fabulous day with Debbie on ‘Digital Marketing : The Essential guide’. She is an amazingly enthusiastic and positive presenter in the delivery of up to date and highly informative information every marketing their own business needs to know. On top of that she makes it fun. I’m already putting into practice what I learned as her enthusiasm is infectious.
I’ve just finished the Clarity and Confidence course with Debbie and can thoroughly recommend it to any looking for business help. Though these one to one sessions are structured, there’s great flexibility in them allowing you to dig down into your situation. Debbie helped me find a clear way forward with a business that was...well, barely a business, let’s say. We looked at everything from what my business is about to who my customers are, how I let them know about it, and much more. These sessions and the work involved have given me the clarity of direction and the confidence to move forward. Thanks, Debbie.
