“Palm and Associates hired Steve to help us with our social media strategy. He got us going on Facebook and Twitter and established a blog for us. He tied everything together to simplify posting and updating. Steve delivers on his promises, is very responsive and easy to work with. He really knows his stuff when it comes to marketing and social media. I would highly recommend him for social media consulting, implementation and training.”

Kimberly Rosen, Owner of Palm and Associates

“I asked Steve to speak at the Project Management Institute Orange County’s Career Fair on how to best use Social Media for those people in transition. He had a 30 minute slot – not a lot of time – but he really did a great job in providing consise and very useful information to the attendees. I heard very positive comments about Steve’s presentation, and attendees wanted his presentation and follow up notes. Steve provided everything as soon as I asked him and now his presentation and notes are posted on our website. He provided a very valuable service to our organization, especially to our members in transition. THANK YOU, STEVE!”

Lori Shapiro, Marketing Director at PMI Orange County

“I attended a workshop session Steve taught for the SCORE group at the U.S. Small Business Administration in Costa Mesa, CA. He introduced me to four new, state-of-the-art tools which I got up and running with minimal effort and maximum impact. I spent about four hours implementing his ideas and I’m really pleased with the results. I would recommend him to any small business owner seeking to get the most out of their on-line investments.”

John Drew, Managing Director Drew & Associates

“Steve Averill designed and implemented a social media campaign for my school that resulted in us raising over $30,000 in five days. These vital funds allowed us to emerge from extensive smoke and water damage that wiped out half of our school without disrupting our students’ education. In our time of crisis, Steve’s expertise allowed me to mobilize my constituents into action, and broaden community awareness of our plight, as evidenced by the 5,000 hits on our website, directly linked to Steve’s campaign, over a 72 hour period. The campaign also resulted in extensive media coverage from local news outlets that also aided our recovery efforts. In sum, Steve is a strategic thinker, whose hands-on, deliberate approach to problem solving is second to none. He is a professional in every sense of the word with a unique knack for setting, in Jim Collins’ words, the flywheel in motion.”

Paul Greenwood, Director of Creative Arts Charter School

“Steve is one of the most creative and energetic people I have ever met! He is very passionate about Marketing, always thinking of creative ways to position things to enhance impact. Steve is extremely resourceful — always ready to listen to the challenges and then offer advice, recommend new ideas, or share resources to help solve the problems. He truly values networking, trying to understand his clients and colleagues, and then connect people he knows who may benefit from knowing each other and/or working together. Steve also believes in measuring the results of any Marketing efforts, ensuring activity, money and resources are used efficiently and effectively. In sum, he has a unique balance of enthusiasm and professionalism that makes him truly valuable.”

“I met Steve through a simple marketing partnership and had no idea the value he would bring to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Not only did Steve always give our non-profit the best deal he could, but he really took the time to get to know our organization, know our mission and went out of his way to help us envision and activate success. With Steve’s help, our LA walk gained an entirely new component – The Kid’s Corner. Steve connected us to many different resources, often thinking out of the box to create 3 way partnerships for maximum benefit to all. The result has been extraordinary and has continued to be built upon. Today, the Kid’s Corner is our most coveted and sought after sponsorship package. It still features some of the partners Steve helped put in place and has made our walk a premiere event in Los Angeles. Due in large part to Steve, our walk has gone from having 8,000 walkers and raising $1.5 million to over 20,000 walkers and raising over $2.3 million in 4 years! I can’t recommend Steve enough, he is personable, creative and most of all, dedicated to everything he commits to.”

Anna Sussman, Deputy Executive Director The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
