Testimonials – Small Business Rainmaker

Since I hired Andre to manage my eMarketing, our content has never been more professional, we realize more consistent interest in our business than ever…our website traffic is increasing consistently.

He put in the time to get to know me, my company and our target audience in a way that I never believed possible.

What a load off my plate!…Thank you for your part in making this a record month in sales!

Bob Gardner

President, Western Trade Printing

I needed to create a video for our company and we started looking for a company to help us with our project, we were lucky to find André and his team, they helped us from beginning to end, we did many changes in the process and they had the patience and the speed to create our video.

Really happy with the service provided, looking forward to keep working with Andre !

Luis Zapata

Owner, L&E Transportation Services

I received my video with all I asked for within 3 days. Outstanding, professional and right on target for my business.

I would recommend using their service, great value for an amazing price. If I had tried to do this on my own it easily would have taken me 5 times longer and cost me so much more.

Ina Masten

Owner and Founder, Masten Solutions

Andre was there throughout and ensured I was happy with the progress & final product.

The product was as I ordered and the service was prompt and professional.

Andre is a good communicator and understanding of the customer needs.

Tel Cooper

Owner, Carpet Science

Andre Palko was a breath of fresh air when I watched his video and spoke with him afterward. Andre is unlike other business owners.

His warm sense of humor and knowledge of his work and how to help other came through quite clearly.

He does not hold back and is honest in his assessment of what you do based on a series of questions designed to discover how he can best serve you.

I recommend you give him your ear. You will not waste your time no matter how much experience you have or not. You will not be disappointed.

Ellen J Harris

Executive Management Consultant, Make Your Pitch

The marketing tactics you shared with me took our small family-owned restaurant from zero at startup to well over $1 million annually.

Honestly, I never expected to get to that level or do it so quickly.

When we started out nine years ago, our accountant couldn’t believe how well we were doing for a new venture. And we stayed at that level.

The best part is we did this on a shoestring budget, with no expensive newspaper or magazine advertising. And I manage to do it all in-house, with a personal computer and a small desktop printer. Thanks a million…literally!

Pat P.

Restaurateur , Roma Ltd.

So very pleased and thankful that I found Andre!

He is a true professional! Extremely competent and knowledgeable.

Andre Soldo

Owner, Andrea's Mobile Notary

I have long admired this man’s marketing wisdom, work ethic, and generosity.

If you are in charge of marketing your small business, I recommend you sign up for his quickly-read, humorous, informative newsletter.

I don’t like Andre Palko’s Small Business Rainmaker…I LOVE it!

The recent Quick Tips article about business cards was a real eye opener for me, and I intend to reference that information in a future issue of my own newsletter! I find many of the marketing tips and customer service advice extremely helpful. And of course, the cartoons and Lighter Side provide a smile every time!

The “Rainmaker” is a quick read, if I want it to be. Or I can click through to read the full articles if they are of particular interest to me. I look forward to my weekly dose of Andre Palko.

In addition, Andre was an inspiration to me, as we developed our own newsletter format in the beginning. That newsletter has proven to be wildly popular among our own customer base, and has made cold calling a breeze!… BEST IDEA I have ever implemented! We have quite a following now. And we owe it all to you!

Owner, Letterpress USA

I can’t say enough about the team behind this tool! They’re extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and customer-focused. I’m very grateful for them, their support, and their excellent CareerBrandVideos™ tool.

This is a simple way to create an effective and engaging online marketing presence. My videos are high-quality and exceeded my expectations.

The process helped me sort the many skills my background represents, and pinpoint and highlight my key strengths. These were distilled into a simple, engaging and effective visual marketing tool that’s easy to deploy online. The ebook was/is hugely helpful to me as I’ve not done anything like this before, and never used video before.

I definitely recommend that anyone use this video program.

I have worked with Small Business Rainmaker and found them to be very professional to work with.

Great methodical approach.

No problem recommending them!

One sterling example of newsletter marketing is produced by Andre Palko…this four-page newsletter is chock full of self-help articles, folksy wisdom, popular quotations, jokes and the occasional cartoon…is undoubtedly more effective than if the entire newsletter were one big advertisement.

I am so thankful for what you did! I value and respect your opinion and the fact that you are helping new business. I really appreciate your help [with video].

Look forward to reading your book. Thank you and God bless.

Brenda Lepai

Owner, Small Business Startup

I always look forward to the Small Business Rainmaker newsletter. Andre’s insights are invaluable to anyone within the restaurant industry.

The newsletter has helped me refine my blog-writing and public speaking presentations by giving me additional insights into the Restaurateur’s mind.

My CareerBrandVideos™ are professionally done and very high quality. They’re a newer way to share expertise and get something out in front of prospective clients. For me, as a small business owner, they are one component of many.

I think job seekers or others who do not want to get in front of camera will benefit. They can supplement this with other career marketing materials. The worksheet especially helped me understand my value. The testimonial video format works very well as a way to share testimonials. I will highly recommended your product to colleagues and others.

Jill Marshall Annitto

Leadership and Career Coach, Leadership Adventure Strategies

Andre and team are super talented and a pleasure to work with.

We’ve collaborated on several projects, and I look forward to continuing to work together in the future!

Marketing Consultant, Anthony Gaenzle Marketing

When I wanted to create an innovative new kind of video system for professionals and entrepreneurs, I turned to Andre to partner in developing the product. I had worked with him numerous times over the past several years on various marketing projects for my small business, Executive Career Brand. Andre was instrumental in bringing the video system – CareerBrandVideos™ – to fruition and ensuring that the personal branding videos we created would be exactly what the development team wanted: extremely high-quality, custom videos that are succinct, and have compelling movement and crisp visuals to immediately capture and then hold viewers’ attention. Videos that would be exactly right for job search and career, but also fit the bill for small business owners and entrepreneurs.

In fact, our CareerBrandVideos™ are so ground-breaking and of such value that the esteemed careers industry association, Career Directors International, awarded us their 2020 Career Innovator Award. Without Andre, I doubt this would have happened.

If you’re a small business owner looking to grow your business, get in touch with Andre. I know first-hand that his visual and video marketing expertise – and phenomenal marketing knowledge base – will get you there.

Meg Guiseppi

Executive Resume Writer, Personal Branding, LinkedIn & Job Search Strategist, Executive Career Brand

The feedback I got from my network about my CareerBrandVideos was overwhelmingly positive and the effort on my end was made easier by the process involved.

The videos provide another channel for people to view me as a candidate or as a colleague. They are a concrete example of trying to be innovative by trying something different. They demonstrate some aptitude to leverage up-to-date capabilities, especially important for someone like myself involved in technology.

Matthew Taylor

Product Management Executive, NextGen Healthcare

The process was explained thoroughly and easy to set up.

Highly recommended for solopreneurs!
