Vanessa provides a high degree of enthusiasm and creativity. She is also quite communicative, intentional, and reliable. She clearly knows how to get things done! Since creating my website with her strategic guidance, I have received many compliments about the site, not only from visitors but from media professionals as well.

She is the best! — Leonna Austin, School Principal | Public School 30M

“A big shout out to my marketer Vanessa for being an amazing consultant through the website design process for The Leap Network, LLC. Your expertise, hard work, creativity, diligence, and thoughtful approach to my business and vision are extremely appreciated. You know you’ve found something special when making that monthly vendor payment is more of a celebration than a pain point. Of course, I’d rather keep my money. But at the end of the day, I’m investing in another entrepreneur. Pay it forward! In closing, support businesses that are owned and operated by people of color. That’s REAL Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work. If we don’t do it, we can’t complain when others don’t. That said, if anyone is looking for an amazing marketer, holla at Vanessa! I recommend her without reservation!” — Bobby Tugbiyele, CEO | The Leap Network

I highly recommend Vanessa as she would be an asset to anyone looking to build their brand.” — Rajahn Hasbin, President | R.H. Fire, LLC

She is a genius with a million-dollar mind. What else can I say? Every time I think about what Vanessa has done for my brand, I nearly break down in tears. When I was at the lows of starting my brand, wondering if I should even continue with my business, Vanessa lifted me up and helped me to keep going. Let’s just say this, after hiring Vanessa, I’ve never looked back. She is a GOAT! Thank you so much for all you do for my brand, Vanessa.

“When you’re competing for contracting opportunities, you have to have a professional, modern website. Our last website design was outdated. We needed an online brand presence that we could be proud of, which would let others know that we are an established business they can trust. We were referred to Vanessa, and it was so much fun working with her. She listened to our needs, reframed our communication with our target audiences, and designed a website we now love to show to others. We look forward to working with her on future marketing projects for our business.” — Fernandez and Farah McKenley, Owners | F2M Fire and Drafting Designs

No amount of words can amount nor sum up the consultation call that I had with Vanessa! For starters, I was very nervous at first.

Vanessa got to the core of helping me figure out who my audience is for my brand exactly & guiding me to the right path as to what makes my brand different from other companies! I DEFINITELY SUGGEST THAT YOU BOOK A CALL WITH HER IT IS WORTH THE TIME I PROMISE YOU! — Shanaia Lawrence, Founder | YinKreationz LLC

When I first started working with Vanessa, my website and logo were super outdated. I worked with a designer who offered to do my website and logo for free. It was the biggest mistake I made. However, when I explained my situation to Vanessa, she reassured me that everything would be okay and that she could give my brand the update I had been looking for. While working together, Vanessa helped me to define my niche and revamped my website and logo, keeping the diamond of the original logo that I loved. She is a true professional with an eye for design. — Micheal Cuffie, CEO | All About Posh Events

“Seriously. You don’t need to go to anyone else. Vanessa’s design of my website left me completely speechless! I was so nervous about venturing out on my own as a business owner. She not only created my website but helped me with the resources and tools I needed to get my business established. She just really cares about her clients.” — Stephen J. White, aka The Hair Siren

 

“I first met Vanessa while she was the marketing executive at the Harlem Commonwealth Council. She helped launch two of their programs for entrepreneurs, Opportunity for Growth and Growth Path. So, when I found out she decided to become an independent consultant, I knew I wanted to work with her after seeing all the amazing work she did for HCC. In working with Vanessa, she did not disappoint. When I desired to have my products placed in major retail stores, Vanessa created my pitch deck, including the content, and connected me with a marketer who specializes in getting products like mine into retail stores. She’s not the cheapest. She is the best. That is what matters.” — Yvette Swinger, CEO | SwingIt Inc.

“At her old job, Vanessa was not just the marketer for the entire organization but the event planner too. This is how we met. She helped me prepare for an event where I helped a presentation for entrepreneurs looking to build their credit. She was so good at her job. It was a no-brainer to work with her when she became a consultant. Since I am an author, Vanessa helped me with marketing for my book signings, and I must say that her designs and copy resulted in some of the biggest event turnouts I’ve ever had. I am truly grateful.” — Murray Allen, Owner | MCE Credit Empowerment

“I've had the pleasure of working with Vanessa on multiple occasions. Talk about a masterful marketer. She worked on marketing and the brand communication strategy for my division when I was the head of leading for the Harlem Entrepreneurial Fund (HEF), a Community Development Financial Institution in Harlem. Hands-down, I consider her one of the BEST and truly IRREPLACEABLE. Since I had a front-row seat to her work at HEF, I hired her to work on the websites for two of my businesses — Integrity Home Buyers and Lloyd's Lasagna. Everything that I hoped for she delivered on. Anyone with a brand will be thrilled to have someone like Vanessa on their team.”   Lloyd Doaman, Owner | Integrity Home Buyers and Lloyd's Lasagna

Vanessa was also flexible and understanding when it came to timelines and payments. She delivered a market research report that I was pleased with. Ultimately, I would recommend Vanessa because she is extremely dedicated to providing quality services to her clients.” — Elizabeth Elohim, Owner | Kozmed App
