“When it comes to cracking the LinkedIn code, Melonie really knows what she is talking about!

I purchased her book “The LinkedIn Code” for about $20, implemented her suggestions and within a week I made $4 000 in revenues that I can directly relate to her recommendations. I would say that that is a pretty good ROI!”

“I asked Melonie if she’d be willing to speak with my Graduate Communications class on social media, new media and her thoughts on the future of internet advertising. She agreed and took time out of her evening to professionally, candidly, inform my students on how to use various social media mediums.

Thank you Melonie for helping us out…we’re grateful of the time you allowed us but more importantly your willingness to give of yourself.”

“I am an organizer of Social Media Camp, Canada’s largest annual social media conference.

Melonie’s LinkedIn presentation at Social Media Camp in 2013 was one of the best rated at the event, from over 40 speakers from across North America. We have invited Melonie back in 2014 as a featured speaker,

Melonie is truly one of the foremost authorities on social media marketing, and easily a top 10 speaker in the world on LinkedIn.”

“Melonie recently conducted a presentation at our annual conference. I found her presentation to be perfect for our audience; it was intuitive and we all were able to walk away with simple, actionable items that could be implemented immediately to get noticed and get results on LinkedIn. Right after her presentation, there were attendees inquiring if she would speak at other engagements. This is a true testament on how she resonated with the group. I look forward to the reward that revamping my LinkedIn profile will bring, and I certainly would recommend Melonie to anyone or any business looking to get more results from LinkedIn.”

“Melonie’s approach to business and training is all about value. I’ve had an opportunity to receive training from Melonie in many areas of my business. Most recently, I participated in LinkedIn Domination Bootcamp. The name says it all.

The value I received from LinkedIn Domination Bootcamp has been amazing. I’ve been able to put what I learned into practice immediately with great results. Within the first week I increased my prospects from zero to 6. This resulted in 1 new client and 3 partner connections that will bring added value to our client programs and reciprocal business to partners. Plus I received one invitation to speak at a women’s luncheon. My goal is to continue using the tactics I learned in the Bootcamp. I initially thought this would be a time intensive activity but now that I have a streamlined approach and process, the time is well worth the reward.”

“Melonie provided our sales force with a training series on LinkedIn and how to best leverage the platform in their selling process. Melonie spent several months researching our business, getting to know our Sales Management team and asking lots of questions in order to tailor the training specifically to our needs. She is extremely knowledgeable, results-oriented, quick to respond to questions and overall a pleasure to work with. We knew we had to explore the world of social media and LinkedIn seemed like the right place to start. After our first meeting with Melonie, we knew she’d be a great fit.

The training she provided our team will open a whole new avenue to prospect and generate new business, connect with existing clients, and other professionals in our industry. I would highly recommend her services to other business professionals.”

“When the Student is Ready, the Teacher Appears” ~ Old Buddhist Proverb
There’s a saying that ‘when the student is ready, the teacher appears’, that’s when I discovered LinkedIn and Melonie appeared, she took me under her wing and in her LinkedIn Domination Bootcamp. Through her unique style of hands on, student interaction and results oriented teaching, gave me a solid foundation to become the “Top Dog” in my area of interest. But it was only during our VIP 1-on-1 session that it came through loud and clear that Melonie was not only a superb teacher, but was deeply interested in me and my project and committed to ensure that I had the tools to see it through. For this I will be eternally grateful.”

“I have had the opportunity to see Melonie in action on stage and work with her as a fellow speaker. Her ability to captivate and engage an audience is as outstanding as her subject matter knowledge.

Her technique in educating people on the effective use of LinkedIn as a tool, versus just another social media platform, is exceptional. I have yet to meet a person, who has followed her steps and advice, not be completely successful with the application, myself included.

The most engaging thing about Melonie is her personality. Her no-nonsense, get to the point, what-you-see-is-what-you-get, attitude, mixed with a fun and outgoing side, puts you at ease almost immediately. From the moment I met her, I knew that this was a person I wanted to work with and it has been an absolutely pleasure to do so.”
