maxedout-social-media-testimonial-IanWhiteThanks Gillian for turning me into a Facebook Ad power user. There was a lot to cover over the four sessions – you paced it well and it all started to fall into place at the end. I am excited to now have the confidence to put my newly learned skills into practice. Facebook is constantly changing and their business marketing system is just so overwhelming for a newbie – it becomes just “too hard”. I now believe I have a jump on the opposition as I can see how I can target advertising precisely to my market (and how to research my market); PLUS monitor the results and fine tune campaigns… phew… well worth the investment . I have been in Internet Marketing since October 2000 and I certainly learnt the most effective way to maximise my time and Dollars. Thank you”

maxedout-social-media-testimonial-DanielaGlassop I attended one of the best workshops I have ever taken part in run by Gillian Maxlow of Maxedout Solutions. I was pretty confident using Facebook but today I found that there was so much more to Facebook. The workshop covered so much ground and was relevant to developing my business page and contacts further and I can see how the material that was covered will help my business to grow. Gillian clearly explained and demonstrated the new material at a steady pace for the length of the workshop and the supplied notes were comprehensive and will be excellent to refer back to. I look forward to the next two Facebook Bootcamp sessions where we are going to cover how to develop effective advertising campaigns on Facebook.

maxedout-social-media-testimonial-KathyTetuUntil now I didn’t know much about operating Facebook. With Gillian’s wealth of knowledge and patience, it was amazing how much she was able to help me with the first stage of FACEBOOK BOOTCAMP. I am no longer scared of Facebook. I can’t wait until next week for the 2nd stage of training.

Gillian has a wealth of knowledge on how the internet of today works – from a deep understanding of using a range of software platforms, to troubleshooting problems with software, to developing strategies to maximise online automation – with a thirst and passion to constantly keep learning.

However, Gillian understands that not everyone has the same experience with technology and social media as she does. Many business owners constantly tell her how working with social media (and technology in general) is just too time consuming, tedious, frustrating, complex – it’s just too hard to do … especially when there’s so many other important jobs to be done within their business. They’re struggling to understand how it all works together, which buttons to click and why.

If this is your experience, if you’re unsure about social media and how to use it in within your business and marketing plans, if you’re struggling to use social media to drive traffic to your website, then Gillian would love to speak with you.

Give Gillian one of the biggest “thrills” she get’s in her professional life – let her see your eyes light up when you finally ‘get it’.
