Here are just a few of the feedback we have received...
Strategic Marketing & PR
"We are extremely glad of our decision to outsource much of our PR and marketing work to Ferry Cake. Michelle’s enthusiasm is both contagious and inspiring driving us to actually “do” things rather than think about doing them! Ferry Cake are very good at turning an informal conversation into a brainstorming session without you even realising, identifying marketing opportunities and then delivering on them.
The value for money is excellent, but more important is the time you save by outsourcing this work. Our marketing was very poor because we could never find the time to invest in it, Ferry Cake make PR and marketing cost-efficient by saving the time you think it will take."

Social Media Marketing
"Keeping up and managing all the various social media platforms isn't easy, in fact near impossible! That's why I wanted to find someone who I could trust to help my business, mainly focusing on Twitter. Following a meeting with Michelle in Cardiff, Ferry Cake Marketing and PR Consultancy took over my Twitter account. The impact was noticeable to be honest and I have seen an uplift of followers and engagement of 20%. Only yesterday, an enquiry mentioned that they had seen me "somewhere on Twitter”. What I like about what Ferry Cake is how proactive Michelle is and nothing is too much trouble when I send an email with news about what's happening with my business. If you are reading this and thinking about using Michelle's services, then I promise you, you have nothing to worry about."

Digital Marketing Workshop
"I thoroughly enjoyed the “Introduction to Digital Marketing talk”. The information was pitched just right, it was easy to understand, not too simple for my current knowledge base and not too challenging. I enjoyed Michelle’s style, she’s a very friendly, warm and supportive person and this really came across in her session. I came away with lots of tools to try out, which will keep me busy for a while to come I’m sure!"
Rebecca Rosenthal, Award winning tutor and founder of Rivki Rose Training, Llanelli
" The digital marketing planning course was extremely productive, with some great advice from Michelle and also lots of opportunity for us to all share our experiences and ideas. We all went away with a good plan of how to approach our digital marketing running forward. I would highly recommend Michelle's courses. She has great experience in the marketing sector, and is a fantastic course facilitator."

Here are just a few more recommendations:
"I had a pleasure of having an interview with Michelle for my dissertation. The research project investigates the motives triggering entrepreneurial behaviour in female entrepreneurs in Wales as well as main barriers they face. I chose to interview Michelle, as she is the ideal example of amazing female entrepreneur, who successfully balance professional career and family life. She is positive and enthusiastic person, truly involved in promoting and supporting existing and new businesses across Wales. I am very grateful her, that despite workload, she found time to support my research project by giving me an opportunity to learn from her knowledge and experience. "
