Here’s what people are saying about Start Social


"The course has been super informative. I really liked the hands-on approach with support to the whole process, the best thing has been your support and guidance."
Cheyney McDonnell
Camille Co


"The course material was super easy to read and follow. I was especially appreciative for the visual 'how to' examples. The ability to be able to then have expert help just an email/phone call away when I hit a wall was invaluable."
Anna Collier
The House Concept


"The Instagram section was so helpful. Knowing how to use it and leverage it effectively is incredibly useful to me. I really can't fault the content."
Aidan O'Donell

"The material on the site is world class - simply amazing. The videos were great to watch and learn from. I absolutely feel more confident using social media for my business."
