“I had the pleasure of working with Maya for four years at Laureate. She immediately impressed me as an extremely capable marketer who understood what was needed to improve bottom-line results. While working closely together on the implementation of many direct response campaigns, Maya was always collaborative and detail-oriented. Maya is well-respected in the organization and viewed as a subject matter expert, as well as a great person and colleague.”
“Maya is an excellent web strategist focused on continuous improvement and problem-solving. She is a pleasure to work with.”
"While I waited for my study proposal to receive approval, I started thinking about my career after graduation and how I should position myself for future opportunities. It was clear that I needed to brand myself to increase my marketability. With my extensive professional background in branding, online marketing, and web design, I knew exactly how to do it. But I realized that many scholars don’t have my skill set. That’s how the idea to start brandEDU was born."
I hired WebFrootz to manage search engine optimization for our new website. They have been a fantastic resource in teaching me how the systems work, how to maximize our input and provided outside links to drive traffic to my site. I found WebFrootz to be responsible, dependable and results driven. In just a few months, their work has brought my site to #1 – #3 organic results for our key word searches.
WebFrootz is exactly what I started worrying not to find after several fruitless attempts looking for the perfect solution to re-design and customize my website (NorthernShots.com)! Over a month of very intense and dedicated cooperation where each and every of my requests was carefully listened, discussed and put into practice. What I especially appreciated has not only been the meticulous developing efficiency but a sort of critical look, a true professional help and point of view I could rely on along the whole working process. Naturally and highly recommend.
The results provided by WebFrootz for my business were nothing short of stunning. They did a spectacular job redesigning my web site. It is visually beautiful and easily used. More importantly for me was the level of service given to achieve this end. They spent considerable time listening to what I wanted to achieve and spent an equal amount of time explaining what they did and how it all works. This was not e-mail or telephone time, it was face-to-face and apparent that they cared to help me and provide the best product for the money. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
WebFrootz did an amazing job in converting our old outdated website to a new professional feel that included all of our requirements and in a WordPress format. They are extremely patient, responsive, professional and knowledgeable. Even with all of our small and tedious "demands"!
“Our company has consulted with and hired Maya more than once and found her expertise and result driven ability to be well worth the cost. Her access to information and knowledge of SEO optimization has taught us how to increase our exposure on the web and ultimately help drive sales up. I would recommend her to anyone serious about their website.”
Maya was a wonderful addition to the Institutional Advancement Team and assisted Development immensely. She is an expert in social media and was instrumental in launching our fund-raising challenge online and implementing donation texting. Our website has also vastly improved due to Maya's input. Maya provided outstanding customer service to her clients (Development) and we really enjoyed working with her.”
When I first started working with Maya almost two years ago, I was immediately impressed with her 'get it done' attitude. She does a terrific job of gathering the necessary information, recommending a strategy/plan and executing flawlessly against it.
I am a 4.0 GPA adult student in my mid-40s, completing my BSBA degree in International Business. I typically over-achieve within my coursework. Consequently, most of my professors have been very kind within their grading commentaries as they evaluated my work. However, Professor Maya also took the extra time to critique my coursework by pointing out areas in which I could yet improve further. I consider this to be very useful for my academic development.
I started brandEDU in 2014 to help academic professionals build strong online personal brands and achieve their career aspirations. brandEDU empowers academic professionals to become more visible, valuable, and influential. With the right connections and exposure, they can evolve as powerful thought leaders in their industries through leveraging the power of digital media to share their ideas with the world.
I started WebFrootz in 2010 to help small or medium enterprises take advantage of the latest web technologies to market and grow their firms more effectively. I observed a huge gap between the opportunities that the digital technologies have to offer and the extent to which small companies leverage them to promote and grow their firms. WebFrootz offers affordable digital marketing services, measurable results, and superb customer service.
Non-profit? For-profit? Start-up? Large? Small? Relax: I've done it all. From initial concepts to final execution, I take the entire branding and marketing process into my own hands.
I've always been passionate about education, including - and especially - in my business. I enjoy educating clients during consultations. I want to teach them what they can do to further their businesses.
Education lights my fire. It allows me to take new knowledge, apply it, and witness its effect right away. This concept seems especially true in digital marketing and small business management, where effectively executing principles learned in the classroom means results.
I write about marketing, branding, and digital media strategies in academia and small businesses.
