"We hired Amy to help grow our fan base through social media and Amy is making us famous on FaceBook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Not being real familiar with Social Media Amy took me from 0-60 in no time. She patiently walked me through each of the sites and did all of the set up for me, even showing me how to engage with our fan base without creating a ton of additional work for me. As an advisor today you can't afford not to use Social Media, and you can't afford the time to try and "figure it out". Do yourself a favor, hire Financial Social Media!"Brandon Stuerke

Summit Business Media
"I met Amy when I joined American General in 2008, when she was the business development manager for Senior Market Advisor. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism, and found she balanced dogged persistence with an understanding of the pace of decision making at times in large corporate settings. She developed a keen sense of what was lacking in the financial services arena, which ultimately led her to strike out on her own to serve a need she saw as lacking. That required both courage and a unique understanding of the subject matter in which she has become expert, that being the leveraging of the new social media tools for financial services marketing and promotion purposes at the retail and institutional levels. She would be an asset to any individual or organization looking to better take advantage of this new media."
"Amy does an amazing job at staying up on all the trends that are happening in the ever changing "Social Media World." I recommend her to anyone in the Financial Services industry who is looking to take their marketing ventures in this direction!"

I recommend Amy without reservation."
"Amy is a true asset to the financial services community and to the social media world as a whole. Her knowledge, expertise and passion for the industry are obvious. Thank you for everything you provide to our industry Amy. If you're looking towards Amy as a way to prompt future business, don't waste another second; move forward today."
