Carla is a savvy communications guru who is astute, personable, motivational and authentic. She does more to help reposition and brand a business in three hours than others can in three days. I have benefited immensely from my association with Carla and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an energetic, creative, hard-working writer or speaker, and overall authority on communications, and someone who provides practical tools that really work. In terms of the services she provides my small business, she was able to quickly assess areas of need and develop a plan to increase my customer base by creating clear and consistent messages across all social media platforms. Carla streamlined my business by bringing all the loose ends together, facilitating focus groups, gathering and sorting through the data to create a cohesive brand that is easily understood by my niche.Apr 7, 2017CarlaAnne Communications, LLC's reply
Thank you Ms. Stephanae for your heartfelt review!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Although communications projects are priced based on the scope of the project, writing assignments are typically based on an hourly rate set to an agreed upon estimate, and full-scale communications projects are based on a specifically scoped out budget estimate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process includes a free initial assessment via phone or in person as appropriate to discuss your communications needs. Discussion topics typically include business or organizational goals, brand, messages, channels, audiences, and what you want your targeted audiences to do, think or feel after receiving the communications, then assess that, and tweak any next iterations of the communications.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have served in senior-level positions for leading companies GE Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson and at top-tier communications firms Hill & Knowlton and Burson-Marsteller in New York. I have deep experience in consumer goods, healthcare, manufacturing, and advanced technology. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Journalism from the University of Kansas and studied complex organizational communications at the graduate level at Northwestern University.
