Herbst Marketing 5 Star Review

Anita Raushel, Broker/Owner, Iron Country Realty

Yvonne has really helped me grasp the understanding of blogging & other concepts in marketing. I am not proficient by any means in my skills of using a computer or social media. Though I have owned my own business for over 25 years, Yvonne has been very patient in teaching me social media and other things to help me grow even more. She is patient, kind & seems to grasp at what I am trying to get across to my audience. I highly recommend her. 5 stars. Anita Raushel, Broker/Owner, Iron Country Realty

Sandra Brannock, Expert Kitchen Designs (Update, April 2014)

sandra-brannock-headshot-facing-rightAs an entrepreneurial business person who was skeptical about website design and marketing, I would like to share my exceptional experience working with Yvonne of Herbst Marketing Services (HMS). Before I engaged HMS, new business came my way strictly by way of client referrals. After I engaged HMS, website leads equaled my number of referrals. All but one became bona fide kitchen remodeling projects. I fully encourage you to sign up with Yvonne. Participate fully in and embrace the design process with her, and what seems to be intangible in the beginning will become tangible–real results that will fatten up your business bank account. After this rewarding experience with Yvonne, I can attest: “How did I exist without her?”

Middleburg United Methodist Church, Middleburg, VA

leah-ferguson-headshotYvonne was terrific in helping us with our website for Middleburg Methodist Church. Our old site had been allowed to expire and was bought by someone in Panama! Searches for our church ended up on the old website not the new one leading to lots of frustration from those trying to connect to our church. Yvonne cleaned up our new site as well as moved us up with SEO so that those searches moved to our new site in the Google search. Her help has been most valuable.

Sullivan Roof Cleaning, West Des Moines, Iowa

bruce-sullivan-google-profile-photoI have two web sites that pertain to my roof cleaning service. For the longest time I have been trying to find someone that understands content, site optimization, SEO and marketing. Yvonne was referred to me by another web designer. I contacted Yvonne and explained what I wanted and we agreed to enter into our present relationship. I found her to be very understanding and responsive to my needs. She has been very forthright with recommendations to help better meet my goals. She did a number of projects with each having a to do list, budget and finished report. I am very pleased with the results and look forward to our next project. It is refreshing having someone that focuses on quality over quantity. Not only is she very professional but also passionate about her service. Thank you.

Expert Kitchen Designs, Amissville, Virginia

Expert Kitchen DesignsI just wanted to let you know that I’m on my way back from meeting (a prospective client) on Capitol Hill. What a lovely couple! They are exactly the type of client that I like to work with. She said that the way she found me was through the website you designed for me. She typed in “Expert Kitchen Designs” and my website came up first and she said when she saw the website it looked very personable. She didn’t want a mass company to (design her kitchen). She wanted a personal one-to-one (kitchen designer). You deserve the credit for that. The website you designed for me attracted the right client for me and it helped her find the right person for her (kitchen remodeling) job. It definitely “happened” for me today because the clients that found me knew who I “was” before I walked in the door! Almost like, “We already know we want you to do the job!” XO

I was extremely impressed with the services and final product I received from Herbst Marketing Services. Her commitment and professionalism were greatly appreciated throughout the process. She accommodated my busy schedule and patiently encouraged me to stay on task and finish what I have been putting off for some time. In the end, I have a successful website and increased our clientele. She was always available to answer my questions and in a timely manner. I like the fact that she listens to her clients and incorporates our ideas in the final product at the same time providing constructive feedback on how it can be improved for marketing purposes. I’ve already recommended Herbst Marketing Services to others as I know they will not be disappointed with the great customer service and expertise she provides.

If it’s quality marketing and website development that you want, then Yvonne and her Herbst Marketing team are the ones to call. Yvonne has extensive knowledge in the area of online marketing and she has provided our office with a great deal of help in achieving our goals. She’s gone out of her way to answer our (sometimes numerous) phone calls, made several “house-calls” to provide us with hands-on tutorials, and has provided extra instructions for how to appear among the top results in organic online searches. Needless to say, Yvonne will NOT take your money, do a quick website and then leave you high and dry. She makes it her mission to ensure that you are happy with the resulting product. Our office has been very pleased with our decision to employ Yvonne.

We called Yvonne after trying for days to figure out some issues with our business Facebook page. She called us back within minutes and worked with us to diagnose a very confusing problem with my set-up. She was friendly, professional, and quickly rectified our issue. A day later my clients are active on my Facebook page and am already gaining new business contacts. I will continue to use Yvonne for any other internet marketing assistance I am in need of.

Working with Yvonne was a very rewarding experience and a good business decision. I saw instant results. One week into my website make-over I asked Yvonne to pick up the pace and throw something together quickly to meet a deadline. She worked her magic with her website creativity and professional optimization skills and voila my website was impressive. I continue to get compliments on my website’s appearance and potential clients are now able to find me easily. Yvonne has helped take my business to the next level. What I loved most about Yvonne is how accessible she was. I could connect with her on weekends or whenever I needed to and she was always right there to help me. Thank you Yvonne.

Beacon House, Ghana

When we started kicking around the idea of hosting a fund-raising dinner for Beacon House, we knew we would need a web page to effectively market our idea. I thought of Yvonne Herbst right away – knowing she had the experience, ability and the heart to help us! The website is truly beautiful and just what we were looking for. The overall design, with beautiful pictures, accurately conveys our information about the event while also giving the user a glimpse into the lives of those special children at Beacon House. We are so pleased with final product and highly recommend Yvonne to anyone needing website development. She is a pleasure to work with and comes prepared to listen and offer helpful suggestions along the way. Thanks Yvonne!

“Yvonne Herbst has been very helpful in showing us how the internet can be used to build your business. She was able to design a beautiful website for us and teach us how to manage the site ourselves. Never thought I’d be able to do that! Now when you Google dog grooming in Warrenton, Georjeans is the first business to come up.”

Earth, Glaze & Fire, Paint Your Own Pottery, Warrenton VA“I was struggling to market Earth, Glaze & Fire effectively until I hired Yvonne Herbst to help. I was spending a lot of money on print advertising that was expensive and wasn’t yielding the kind of results I wanted. We had a website, but no one could find it. This was a big problem, since we had moved to a new location that was ‘off the beaten track’ and hard to find. Add to that the fact that the phone company had failed to publish our correct phone listing, and for all practical purposes, we were invisible in our local community.

Yvonne created a marketing road map and helped us implement it. First, she created a new website that ‘put us on the Google map’ in less than 30 days. She also promoted us proactively through her network of personal and business connections, as well as various social media like her local community directory, Warrenton-Favorites.com, and local Yahoo Groups. She kept our Facebook page up-to-date with our latest news, provided professional copy-writing for our Constant Contact email newsletter, and created a photo gallery for our website.

Five months after retaining Yvonne’s services, we now have an internet presence that generates more than 400 visits to our website each month. People don’t have to know our business name or website address to find us. Yvonne made sure that we would be found for our most profitable and relevant search phrases, like Warrenton birthday parties, Warrenton kids activities, Warrenton summer camps, Warrenton girl scout activities, and Warrenton Halloween activities.

As a result, Earth, Glaze & Fire is now getting more phone calls, more drop-in visits and more profitable large-group party-bookings from people who have discovered us — or rediscovered us — through Yvonne’s social media, community outreach, email marketing and webmaster services.

Yvonne taught me a lot about internet marketing and marketing in general. She is dedicated, and fun and easy to work with. I highly recommend her services.”

I have known Yvonne Herbst for several years and found that she is very knowledgeable in the internet marketing areas. She has helped J&D Handyman Services great results using the Google Local Maps.  I would recommend her to other businesses and personal friends.
