After just a couple of sessions working together to get a few things streamlined, I was anxious to get to work & felt confident in doing so! I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone needing a “boost” to get their social media needs squared away. Thank you so much, Suzanne!!

She helped me set up schedules for Facebook posts on my fan page and for blogging. She redid my website, and taught me how to use it. She has tons of ideas for marketing; she helped keep me on track; she’s enthusiastic, very easygoing; she’s VERY patient, a great teacher, and she’s FUN!!!

Suzanne was great to work with on our Iowa film premiere of the Glen Campbell “I’ll Be Me” documentary event in February 2015. She successfully brought three organizations together to organize and execute an event that generated considerable attention, with over 1,900 registered attendees.Suzanne is highly organized, efficient and easy to work with and I’d highly recommend her and her talents to anyone looking for an event planner, marketing or project management professional.

I am currently working with Suzanne. She listened to my concerns and the goals I have for my company. She has put together a cohesive, easily understood schedule of items to accomplish that we are working through. Under her excellent tutelage, I feel much more competent in my social marketing ability.

Nancy Pim – Executive Director, LearningRx

I leveraged Suzanne’s social media experience and expertise recently. We walked through the social media tools that I currently use, and she helped me understand how to better utilize each one. We reviewed my online profiles together and she gave me recommendations for improvement and also shared some hidden features that I didn’t know about. I walked away from each session with clarity and a list of simple but impactful actions I could immediately take to improve my online presence. Thank you, Suzanne; it was truly a wonderful experience!

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with marketing or social media concepts.

Mark Martin, Owner, Ankeny Auto Body

Suzanne was extremely good to work with and I would do so again. She is knowledgeable, responsive to questions, and met our work deadlines. She definitely helped me to understand where social media may or may not fit in my business model.

Kevin Drury, Owner, Hedlin Ag

Suzanne is absolutely a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of social media. Even though I’m a dinosaur she never makes fun of that fact and is always willing to repeat herself over and over without tiring. She has taught me a lot even though to her it’s just the tip of the iceberg. She designed my website and explained what should go where and added several helpful links. I also believe her prices are very fair. I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to increase traffic to their business.

Larry Wieland, Owner, Ace Body & Motor

I have worked with Suzanne on several projects and have been more than impressed with her. Suzanne is committed to understanding my business needs, she is extremely empathetic to our needs and she is wonderful at creating solutions that work within the scope of those requirements and resources. She is a consummate professional and she always provides value to the working relationship. Aside from being a great business person, she is also wonderful to work with and an absolute joy to be around. Suzanne can help you on so many levels and her expertise would be a feather in the cap of any business…big or small. I would gladly hire her again and would highly recommend her.

Brian VanHeuverswyn, Electronic Media Director, August Home Publishing

What can I say about the “Get it Done Girl”! She was absolutely amazing to work with. Try getting 4 salesmen to show up to a scheduled training and then get them all to understand social media. We enjoyed every minute we had with her and we would invite her back in a heartbeat. Thanks again Suzanne!

Dustin Hemesath, The AV Professionals

We hired Suzanne to coach us on the Social Media aspect of Marketing. She has not only proved herself as an expert in that area, she also has helped in other areas of our marketing efforts. She is very knowledgeable and easy to work with, and we highly recommend her work.

I really appreciate her direct and personable approach. We couldn’t be happier to have her on our marketing team. If you are looking for real results from your social media efforts, talk to Suzanne. She knows her stuff and she lives up to her name!

I highly recommend Suzanne…even if you already have a web site you think is ok, let her give you her special touch. She is great!

Debbie Sears, Sears Insurance

I have to credit Suzanne for helping me not only start my business, but for helping me build my business. I’m proud to say I’ve had the pleasure of working with Suzanne on several projects. She gave me the guidance needed to reach my goal of sending out an e-newsletter as a part of my drip-marketing strategy. I’ve met several entrepreneurs and I can say that Suzanne is one of the few people I’ve met who takes a sincere interest in helping those she meets. As the “Get It Done Girl,” Suzanne is able to tailor services specific to her clients’ needs and coach them to achieve real, measurable results. She is a superb assessor of strategy and ingenuity when it comes to all things social media. I highly recommend Suzanne to anyone who is needing an extra “push” to take their business to the next level of success.

Melissa Khodai-Burkheimer, Owner, Designer and Storyteller, 3KB Graphics

Suzanne is truly a “Get it Done Girl”! A friend recommend that I should meet with Suzanne because he thought her skill set would address some ideas I was developing. He was most certainly right, as that meeting turned into a small business relationship that is good for my client, her and me. From the first meeting, I felt comfortable with Suzanne; I have found her easy going nature, can do spirit and ready smile to be true indicators of who she is. As important, she is an expert in communications – specifically social media related and she can direct you on the right path, help you do what needs to be done or implement it herself. You don’t always find those three skills together, but with Suzanne you do. If you have the chance to work with Suzanne – you should.

Doug Pals, CRO and Principal, Re:Sourceful Communications

I had the pleasure of having Suzanne come to my office on four different occasions to teach different social media outlets. Not only is Suzanne friendly and a great teacher she is extremely knowledgeable in this social media market!! I would highly recommend Suzanne if you are looking to jump into the social media community or want to just learn how to use it in your business.Thank you Suzanne for everything you are amazing!! I look forward to working with you again!

Working with Suzanne Hull owner of Contemporary Business Solutions was just what we needed to boost our real estate business into the 21st century. Sellers and buyers of residential real estate are depending on the Internet everyday. Don and I had to get our name out there, as they say. Suzanne laid out a six month social media and business plan with us. It seemed overwhelming and exciting at the same time. Well, let’s get started. The six months zoomed by, we were learning so much weekly and immediately putting it all to work. Suzanne was professional from day one; she is knowledgeable in all areas of business solutions. For her clients she creates a tailored made program to fit their criteria of needs. Every meeting she was organized, prepared, efficient, and so resourceful. There was never a question we asked that she could not answer on the spot. We highly recommend Contemporary Business Solutions with Suzanne Hull to help with web design, business planning, social media, name generation and event planning. I am not sure where it stops; she is the “Get It Done girl”.

Self portayal 2011 Thumbnail-1 - mailchimp My lucky day was when I met Suzanne Hull at a local coffee shop for one of her no-charge Office Hours sessions. I told her my social media failures and frustrations as well as what my vision was for how this could be a part of my marketing. Suzanne put together a step-by-step action plan on paper for my business. Since that day several months ago, going at a pace I could manage, Suzanne has coached me in how to use Twitter, Facebook, my Blog, LinkedIn and an E-newsletter to further my business. I have seen measurable, positive results in new customers finding my business and with how my business is positioned in my target market. I feel confident I can use the tools Suzanne has shown me to keep my Social Media presence positive and growing.

Munro-small-image I went to Suzanne for help establishing my professional website. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and an excellent guide to what I should and shouldn’t do. Much more than just a website designer, she helped me think strategically about how to use my website effectively. The final result was exactly what I wanted — and it won lots of praise for clean design and ease of use. I would absolutely work with her again.

Suzanne enabled CreditWise to enter the world of social media. Suzanne worked with us to establish our business on face book, twitter, LinkedIn and a blog. She not only set up the accounts she worked with us until we were able to maintain the accounts on our own. I would highly recommend Suzanne to a business associate or a friend.

connie ward I initially meet Suzanne through the Unemployed in Des Moines networking group she started. I was instantly inspired by her enthusiasm, initiative and resourcefulness in successfully creating her own consulting business – Contemporary Business Solutions. I recently attended her Social Media Workshop Series which I would highly recommend as a wonderful introductory source to gain instant knowledge in social media. She continues to be a key mentor as I now navigate developing my own consulting business. Her multi-faceted business expertise coupled with her “get it done” attitude proves to be a great resource for both start-up and well established companies.

Jude Conway As Executive Director of the American Food Venture Forum, I hired Suzanne to provide all marketing and public relations services for the conference. She did wonderful work, got along with everyone even though there was a great deal of friction between some of the people she worked with and put well over the number of hours contracted for just to get the job done. Suzanne and I have talked about working on some upcoming projects together and I can’t wait to work with her again.

Would I hire her or work with her again? You bet. In a flash.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Suzanne as both a job seeker when she was blogging as Unemployedindesmoines and as a vendor to my company now that she is consulting through her new venture – Contemporary Business Solutions. She has always impressed me with her energy and enthusiasm. Her attitude is infectious. She has also always “gotten it”. Her business acumen is unbelievable. She has been able to help me aim my efforts and resources in a way that has had a measurable positive effect on my bottom line. This combination of spirit and business savvy is rare. If you get the chance to have her help you out – take it.

Ben Stone, RPO Consulting

John Stein My experience in working with Suzanne has been nothing but 100% pleasant and positive. Suzanne is an organizer extraordinaire. I personally experienced her organizing thoughts around some writing she completed for my business. I have also witnessed her organizing businesses, web sites, marketing tools, and yes, even communities as she has made herself available to support the underemployed and unemployed in central Iowa. Organization is a tremendous skill set and asset for any business, and I highly recommend Suzanne and all that she has to offer to you and your business endeavors.
