“Like many businesses, adding social media to our current marketing communications program was a necessary but completely mysterious step in staying competitive.

Nobody in senior management could take on this added responsibility and our junior staff had familiarity with social media as users but not the required expertise to craft a successful commercial program. But we knew that we needed to do something.

Joseph Scott provided both the necessary analytical perspective on our market and a decisive direction for us to follow. He developed an actionable program that integrated with our existing efforts in other media that was also sustainable with internal resources. His thoughtful approach made the transition seamless and immediately generated results. It is a very efficient and high-return part of our communications program.

As a result of our experience, Joseph remains a trusted resource as questions arise or we feel that guidance is warranted. In a world full of so-called experts, it’s great to find and retain a real one.”

Eric Ibsen, Chief Design Officer at FME Architecture & Design


“When he said he could have my website up and running by publication date, which was in two weeks, I didn’t believe him. Not only did we make the deadline, my website looks great, it’s easy to manage, and was very affordable.”

Effie McDermott, author, Images of America – Pismo Beach, Arcadia Publishing


“I needed a digital presence to build my writing platform, but had no idea where to begin.
Joseph mapped out a strategy to match my skill set and a plan to have that audience ‘find me’. He worked one-on-one with me to develop my website/blog. Then taught me the survival skills I needed to understand- and scale- social media.”

Karen Samford, journalist/blogger, Dallas Morning News


” Joseph is a ROCKSTAR. He’s cool, he’s funny, he knows Integrated Marketing and there is no-one as well versed in Social Media. I’ve worked with him for many years and he never ceases to amaze. He’s great at getting to the core, is an extremely supportive coach, a good friend and charitable citizen.”

In the 20 plus years that I have know him he has always played to his strength, recognize what others could do better, and through delegation with an emphasis on contribution and collaboration, delivered the best possible outcome time and time again. He has never been about getting something done, it has always been about getting the right things done.”

Gene Inger, Publisher, The Inger Letter
