A Highland Blend has worked with a wide variety of businesses and individuals who have been happy to provide testimonials. For more information on the services and expertise I offer to businesses, please take a look at my available services page!
Susan has helped us to tick off a few tasks now that we previously hadn’t had time to complete before. A Highland Blend took the stress of the job away from us and we have been really grateful for Susan’s help.
Susan is very reassuring to work with! She really cares about giving value. I asked her to help me transfer my existing guest info pack to an online guide and her eye for detail and local knowledge came through in all her suggestions. Her understanding of the brief really showed in the final result. I will certainly be asking her to help with copy and social media again.
A Highland Blend has helped improve Caithness Market by bringing organisation and innovation to the event. Susan mostly deals with the social media side of things, which takes a lot of time and really helps but as well as that, Susan will offer a lot of advice in the background, so whenever we’re looking to freshen things up or to push things forward, or make the market more enjoyable for everyone who’s browsing and taking part, Susan will come up with an abundance of ideas, knowledge and expertise.
I feel more confident and have a renewed excitement to share my passion for Caithness through social media content and marketing. Susan has motivated me to be more structured and organised to help achieve my business goals. So lucky to have this service and support locally.
Susan has been a fantastic support to my team and I over the last 8 years. Susan gets involved in all manner of tasks including calendar management, logistical support, proofreading documents, organising meetings, and events such as conferences & seminars. We are a distributed team and Susan works very effectively remotely.
I would describe Susan’s skills as professional, organised, efficient, meticulous, and creative. More than that, I would say that Susan is friendly, helpful and is a wonderfully skilled writer to boot!
Susan kindly provided us with some high-res photos of items across the menu, which is something we’ve never had the time, gear or foresight to do. These have become really useful marketing assets for future pizza nights – as we’ve found the best way of selling pizza is to show people photos of our pizzas!
I first got to know Susan back in 2014 from her attending the North Hop festivals as a customer. She was always super supportive and keen to get the word out about the events/festivals so when I was looking for a brand ambassador for North Hop to cover the Highlands area in 2017 Susan seemed like the perfect fit. She is very proactive and has a very strong ‘support local’ ethos!
Susan has been an extremely valuable contributor to our work on What’s Happening Inverness. She has provided a series of restaurant reviews, which she has conducted with a high standard of professionalism. Her photographs were of great quality and her writing was inspiring and exciting. Anybody who read her reviews would feel transported to her dining experience and inspired to visit the restaurant.
She has also contributed to our one-off hard copy publication, where she had her own feature recommending a variety of places. The articles were well written with nice vivid descriptions of each place.
Susan has been brilliant at supporting our work at LAC through both reviewing and previewing events from our public programme, including previewing the whole season and selecting highlights. We’ve found that having somebody to cast an outside eye over what we’re doing and put it into their own words is one of the single most useful marketing tools for us. This has undoubtedly enabled us to reach people we otherwise would not have reached before and helped to communicate our key messages across the county.
