What my clients have said about working with me
“When I first met Ally, I was impressed with her creativity and positive attitude. When I found myself managing a large federal grant that required marketing and web design consulting I naturally thought of Ally. Ally and her team listened to my needs and my budget and came up with both a great web design which included a Content Management System backend, and several great marketing brochures to use to sell the federally funded services we were providing to NH cities and town. The marketing included a great logo for the program, which won over the state directors of the program and made me look great in the eyes of my client!
Ally is a unique blend of highly creative marketing guru and clear-headed manager of budgets and timeframes. She is able to deliver very creative solutions and do it so I don’t have to worry about the deadlines. She also brings energy and enthusiasm to her work. I’d recommend Ally for any marketing project.”
– Eric Halter, ETAP Project for CLF Ventures, Inc.
“I couldn’t run my business without Ally Piper. She helped me realize I could create the business I envisioned. She patiently taught me new skills and gave me the guidance and expertise I needed to make it a reality. I truly couldn’t have gotten this off the ground without Ally and I love knowing that I can continue to ask her questions and utilize her skills with some of the on-going details for which I no longer have time.”
– Peggo Hodes, Vibrant Voice
“Red River Theatres, a non-profit movie theater with weekly marketing needs, has used Ally Piper for a complete range of marketing activities – from building a website, to designing brand materials and guidelines, and from constructing a marketing plan to creating and managing Red River’s annual signature Red Carpet fundraiser. Ally Piper is inventive, on-task and extremely proactive in meeting the needs of the client. She’s got a flair for design and a definite knack for staging events. Nothing scares her and she’s a pro under pressure and deadlines. I would highly recommend Ally to any business, large or small, for whatever marketing job they have.”
– Connie Rosemont, Executive Director, Red River Theatres
“Working with Ally was a wonderful experience. Our firm knew we wanted to build a new website, but we were quite concerned with how we could create something that was professional, yet unique and personal. Ally and her team guided me through the process by listening to our goals, presenting us with numerous options and then bringing our choices to life. We are beyond thrilled with our new website and feel that it truly sets us apart. We look forward to a continued relationship with Ally and hands down recommend their services to anyone considering building or re-vamping a website.”
– Katie Perkins, Uricchio Law Firm
“Ally is an amazingly energetic person, and I really wanted to check all seven attributes of her work because she epitomizes all of them. She’s able to strike that delicate balance between taking leadership of a project and engaging the client as a partner in the project. She listens well and translates what she hears into a great product and service. She stays on top of all aspects of the project and doesn’t let the details fall through the cracks. She will often go above and beyond the call of duty to serve her customers. She continues to send out my e-newsletter for me on a monthly basis, and I expect to use her to help me develop my on-going marketing plans. I highly recommend her for marketing and graphic/web development.”
— Marty Jacobs, Systems in Sync
“I have worked with Ally on several occasions in varying roles and Ally is great at everything she puts her mind to. Where she absolutely shines is providing inventive marketing ideas with solid solutions that attract the right clientele. What I like most is that she listens to all the details, draws out more details and understands the BIG picture. I have come to her with a problem and within an hour or so of talking with her, she has devised a custom marketing solution for me to implement quickly and fairly easily. She really is the marketing Ideapreneur™!”
— Nora Richardson, Spot-On Branding
“Before working with Ally, we were having trouble identifying the strategies with the best marketing value, prioritizing and actually finding the time to market. We were looking for a larger lead flow, but weren’t sure the best ways to improve on what we had. After, we realized we needed to change our strategy and only focus on only one type of client instead of splitting our efforts.
Ally opened our eyes to marketing in a way we’d not looked at it before and relatively speaking we realized we needed to completely overhaul our approach. There’s a huge value in that!”
– Pam Mogle King, Charleston Wedding Studio
“Ally pointed me in the right direction and offered excellent tips for marketing my business. My marketing plan was non-existent and she gently pushed me in the direction I needed to go! I’m much more pro-active in talking about my business to others and offering my services… to everyone!”
— Debbie Kardaseski, Debbie K Graphics
“Throughout our time together, I’ve grown as a business owner and would not have been able to reach the goals I have without Ally’s guidance. I quickly knew that I had made the right decision to work with her because she was so vested in my business and success from the start. Ally filled every gap of my weaknesses with her strengths and has lifted me to another level to begin the New Year. I’m so appreciative of her knowledge, professionalism and kindness. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of marketing assistance of any kind for their business.”
— Amy Parker, Parker House Designs
“Ally is a true professional in every sense of the word. She is able to generate unique and creative marketing concepts, and to work with both volunteers and employees to implement these concepts in an efficient, effective and, indeed, enjoyable fashion. Ally is thoughtful, personable, well-organized and tenacious. She demonstrates tremendous attention to detail in all that she does, and she is a joy to work with. I have tremendous confidence in her abilities and I would not hesitate for an instant to hire her for any difficult project that needs to be done correctly and with class. Ally does an outstanding job.”
– Emily Rice, Orr & Reno and Red River Theatres
“Having done everything myself for so long, trusting someone else to do anything for me was quite a leap of faith. I was to the point where I realized that I couldn’t continue to do things the way that I was doing them. Working with Ally was the perfect fit for me. Not only did she understand what I wanted to do, she understood the market that I was targeting. There was no wasted time or effort, and my business never skipped a beat.
The biggest advantage was that I was able to concentrate more on what I was supposed to be doing, creating art. When I was able to let someone else worry about the marketing, my mind was free and clear of that burden and more able to operate with the freedom that I required.
We were on the same wavelength right from the beginning. There was a mutual understanding of what we both expected of each other, and we both delivered. Just because I teamed up with someone to handle the marketing work for me, that didn’t absolve me of responsibility in the situation. I still had things to do that were required of me, and that kept me in the loop with what was going on.
I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Ally. I couldn’t have realistically hoped for it to work out any better than it did.”
– Scott Bulger, Scott Bulger Photography
“After throwing spaghetti against the wall for a little more than three years in my business and really being a LOT clueless about what kind of havoc I was creating behind the scenes because I was flying by the seat of my entrepreneurial pants – I made the VERY WISE decision to engage the services of Ally Piper of Bright Eyes Creative to help me to put some structure in my business that would allow for me to start to have a more consistent cash flow as well as some breathing room and creative space for development of new programs and service offerings.
In the short term she helped me in many ways to get greater clarity on just exactly how much of a strain I was putting on my back office just because I didn’t know what I didn’t know – so my team is much happier and less stressed out working with me and I am clearer on what I can reasonably expect to get done by my team and in how much time. Over the long term though I can see now that having a solid year long marketing plan in place and staking a claim for MYSELF in my calendar is going to serve me and my clients exponentially better.
I’m excited that because of my work with Ally I put on my “big girl pants” and now have a marketing plan for the coming year that is both doable and desireable. It’s a plan that started with the question – “When are YOU taking vacation next year?” Ally understands better than any one I’ve yet met the importance of having a proper annual marketing plan that recognizes the entrepreneur as the GOLDEN GOOSE and greatest asset of the business. Thanks to Ally, I’m finally going to be able to realize the lifestyle I’ve only been dreaming of – one where my balance sheet and I are BOTH healthy!”
