“I am pleased to recommend Tamara Rasberry to my clients and for all my consulting engagements. She not only knows immediately how to engage each client, but also she delivers to each client–ahead of aggressive deadlines–quality, thorough social media services. As one who is organized, professional, and a skilled communicator, Tamara has an acute business sense to lead teams in maximizing business relationships and increasing profitability through social media platforms. Tamara exemplifies both teamwork and leadership. Also, she has a strong grasp on the customers’ business objectives and requirements. She demonstrated these skills while revamping my company’s Facebook and Twitter business pages, and she marketed them well to my current and prospective audiences. Tamara possesses the attributes of one who is extremely goal-oriented—true visionary. Needless to say, I will–without hesitation–hire Tamara Rasberry to satisfy any social media management requirements!”

“When it was time for me to take the marketing of my board game, The Debate Game, to the next level, I knew I wanted to incorporate videos but I had no idea of how to get people to actually SEE the videos. That’s where Tamara came in. She set up a YouTube channel, uploaded each video – including applicable tags – and gave each an attention grabbing title. She then 1) created multiple email campaigns to promote the videos and reach out to potential customers and 2) shared the videos with various local and national media outlets.
One of the videos caught the attention of the Smithsonian Institute’s ‘Art of Love’ project, resulting in The Debate Game co-sponsoring a groundbreaking event with them. For the month leading up to the event, Tamara created and managed a Twitter account to promote the game/event and to also reach out to and engage with people and entities discussing similar topics. Through Tamara’s use of strategic and targeted outreach, not only was the event a success but we were contacted by organizations around the globe wanting to share The Debate Game with their audiences.
Tamara’s advice is timely and relevant. She sees the big picture and thinks of multiple options, possibilities and outcomes. She definitely helped me take The Debate Game to the next level and put it in front of a wider audience resulting in more sales. I would not hesitate to recommend her or work with her again. In fact, I’m looking forward to it!

“Already a successful matchmaker and life coach, I knew that a stronger new media presence would be required in order to take my business to another level. I approached Tamara about being the New Media Manager for my brand, OneDegreeFrom.Me, because, after watching her for a while, I was impressed with her online presence and her obvious firm grasp of new media concepts. Since working with her, my respect for her abilities has continued to grow. She has successfully managed a team of interns, provided me with priceless consultative advice and consistently brought forth ideas designed to enhance the brand as a whole. One of the greatest things about working with Tamara is her availability. I can always contact her and expect a prompt response. She makes me feel as though I’m her only client! As a testament to the effectiveness of her advice, OneDegreeFromMe recently became a finalist for one of the top honors in new media, a Nokia Shorty Award – without Tamara, this achievement would not have been possible!”

“Tamara provided social media marketing services for a nonprofit client and achieved great results. Due to her subject matter expertise and extensive online connections, she was able to increase the organization’s visibility as well as cultivate awareness of their mission with influential bloggers. During the course of the engagement, she also helped me increase my own knowledge of social media metrics and ROI for Facebook and Twitter. My experience with Tamara is that she provides great value for organizations who need hands-on expertise in the social space.”

“I had the pleasure of attending a panel discussion hosted by the DC Small Business Development Center on Leveraging Social Media in Business in which Tamara co-presented. For personal use, I’d consider myself at the intermediate level for social media; therefore, I was looking to get some strategic tips and solutions for navigating social media in my small business, which Tamara did a great job in providing. Tamara understood that being a small business owner, you are often times every department, division, and position. With that understanding she was able to breakdown the benefits and draw-backs of each social media form, provide insight on finding a happy-medium between personal and professional social media profiles, and overall shared insightful expertise in the field. Great job Tamara! ingeniousEVENTS will navigate social media with ease now thanks to your great presentation.”

“I hired Tamara in May 2011 for image consulting services, particularly focused on makeup application and skincare techniques. I always admired her style in these areas and once I found out she was a certified makeup artist, it was a no-brainer! Before the consultation, Tamara sent me a makeup and skincare assessment to determine my needs and desired outcome for our session. She was very patient with a relative newbie like me in determining how to use makeup to enhance my features. Tamara also gave me great advice on changes needed to my skincare regimen and products I could use to address my concerns. She took me step-by-step through the process of creating looks that could easily transition from day to evening. She made personalized recommendations on products and tools I could use on my own to achieve the looks she had created. Tamara answered all of my questions and remains available for follow up queries to this day. I was very pleased with how the consultation turned out and I’ve received several compliments on my new and improved makeup techniques. Your image is an integral part of your overall brand. Tamara gets this. Therefore, without hesitation, I would highly recommend her for any of your image consulting and brand management needs.”

“Tamara worked with me as an image consultant this year on skincare and clothes styling. She is a real pro! When we consulted on skincare, she took great care explaining things to me, giving me useful examples, and provided follow up information for me that I could practically apply on a daily basis. She was very thoughtful and insightful about the choices she made and gave excellent advice. I also really appreciated the fact that she was willing to spend extra time with me, and never made the experience feel like she was watching the clock. She spent a great deal of time with me, making suggestions for ways to update my wardrobe, improve my skincare, and generally feel better about the makeup and clothing choices I make. She continues to be available to answer quick questions or provide additional insight. In all, Tamara was an absolute dream to work with and is someone I would recommend to anyone looking to make a change — large or small. I definitely plan to use her services in the future!”

“I consulted with Tamara on makeup and clothing–my first time working with anyone on it. She was easy to work with, had good suggestions, took into account my little foibles and devised ways around them that work for me–necessary if I was going to make the changes she recommended. She spent the most time on my wardrobe (as I asked her to) and had some really good recommendations on how to work with what I already had as well as some suggestions for additional purchases that would work well for me. I appreciated her candor and, as with the makeup, worked within my comfort zone to achieve looks with which I am comfortable. She followed up after our meeting with suggestions based on her research of things we had discussed. I will be calling on her to assist me again once the weather changes and the winter wardrobe comes out. I’d highly recommend working with her.”
