TESTIMONIALS

What past employers and clients are saying

    Daniel J. Lloyd

    Associate Director, Long Island Citizen's for Community Values

    Godson was a great help to us with coordinating the marketing of our first event at LaunchPad Huntington last year. He kept everything organized by coming up with a marketing strategy that helped us pack out the event. He worked directly with our staff and helped ensure everyone knew their roles. I can personally recommend working with Godson.

    Godson consulted me on how to use social media for my business the right way so I was spending less time thinking of what content to come up with and more time actually orchestrating the things that needed to get done on the daily. He was very helpful when it came to training me on what tools would work best for me.

    As a client of Godson's, I can say firsthand how much work he did into breathing life into my brand. As writer, they tell us don't judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to actually selling books, that's not the case apparently... Godson worked on a digital marketing plan that turned my website into a place where my readers wanted to buy books, not just read my blog. So glad to have worked with him!
