What have previous clients said about you?

Excellent personalised service by several team members who have become experts in my companies, brand and messaging. Always available via slack and extremely responsive with timelines and project to do’s.

Kirsten - Founder

The work I have done with Clara has helped me jump over a hurdle that has been tripping me up for ages. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders!

This will transform how I communicate with my clients, and ultimately help me achieve more sales.

Zeenat Ahmed-Peto, Cognitive Hypnotherapist

I hired Clara to help me set up our email marketing strategy for new subscribers. Clara was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and she quickly identified some areas where we could improve. She also helped us to create a more targeted and effective email marketing campaign which was also very much on brand. She was very patient, willing to answer all of my questions and in a way teach me how to do email marketing on my own. What has impressed me the most is how helpful she was with promoting our new email sequence. She gave us so many tips and even shared our promotional tools on her social media platform.

Silva Hrabar-Owens, Founder & CEO Under Her Eyes (Vegan Fashion brand)

Clara is extremely knowledgable in all things email marketing, having the experience to back it up. She really helped me to set a strategy; to have clarity over what I need to do to make email marketing a success. I highly recommend her if you are serious about powering up your email marketing.

Richard Lalchan, Business Coach

Since working with Clara, our highest metrics in a sole campaign have been a 40.2% Open Rate and a 9.9% Click Rate (it was 1.1% before working with Clara). She has helped, supported, and encouraged our team throughout the entire Email Marketing journey and has helped us to improve the design, opens, and clicks on our mailers through A/B Testing.
