It’s my pleasure to provide this recommendation for Sarah Kirkpatrick of Jumping Elephant Social Media Manager & Copywriter. On a personal level, she’s charismatic, well-spoken, and extremely qualified with qualities that have reflected and served her well in the role as an online marketing and rebranding professional for HomeFix Renovations.

I am extremely satisfied with the spectacular progress and ongoing job that Sarah has done in a very short period of time. Improving my online marketing of HomeFix and business presence. Always one in questioning everything she was proposing to do, she managed to instill in me a sense belief.

Without hesitation, I feel in lighted to say (Sarah) has paved a plan which to date is transforming everything we do. Sarah and her team of professionals have instilled a faith in marketing once again. Anyone wishing to further enquire on her capabilities is more than welcome to contact me personally if need be.

The digital space is something I know little about and in my quest I have found it challenging to find that ‘right’ fit. I have to admit, I went into the initial meeting with my guard up, but I left the meeting feeling pumped. Sarah’s passion for her business was abundantly clear, I love it!
After an in-depth Phase 1 Market Analysis followed by a well laid out Phase 2 Digital Marketing Strategy, it all became clear…I have my work cut out for me. The digital marketing strategy, while overwhelming at first with just how thorough it is, once broken down into smaller tasks…I can do this. And the best part, I don’t have to do it alone. Thank you, Sarah and Jumping Elephant! Let’s crush it! Jumping Elephant is a definite recommend.

Sarah recently helped me learn how to improve my existing social media presence by thoroughly analyzing & studying my existing social media sites. She made the effort to ask me lots of questions and learn about my business operations, business goals and ideal clients, and then provided me with a wealth of information to help me implement the plan~ recommendations, guidance, tips, advice, and a strategy to assist me in creating a stronger social media presence. Sarah is very professional, efficient and genuine. I would highly recommend her services to any business owner who is looking to improve their social media platforms.

I met Sarah Kirkpatrick a few years ago – online, of course. She seemed to be everywhere – be it Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook – sharing great content from individual posts, articles, and eBooks. I say, “great” because after reading it, I started using it, and I was getting results just from that.

Then, one day, in real life, there she was – at one of my seminars (The Measurable Difference) as a guest in the audience. Sarah created more content than my team did, and her stuff was getting all the ❤, retweets and engagement.

It would be a year later when our paths crossed again IRL, at the SocialWest conference last spring. Once again, I watched Sarah’s seemingly effortless online activity grab the attention, likes, and shares of others.

I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Jumping Elephant for the past six months. She is the real deal. She and her team have many skills, one of which being her ability to see the bigger picture and reverse engineer the steps (strategy) to represent the purpose of their customer’s objectives.

Probably the greatest thing I appreciate about Sarah is her willingness to stay true to her own moral compass. She’s a woman with measured integrity – she doesn’t buy into to hype or manipulation, nor will she working with just anyone or any business. She chooses wisely.

I have a real appreciation for anyone who shares well written and useful content – this would be Sarah Kirkpatrick and her team. I have zero resistance in recommending Jumping Elephant to any business, organization or public figure looking to improve their online presence, influence, and achieve measurable results.

I first met Sarah through a seminar she put on for an introduction for small business owners to social media. Even though I had dabbled personally in social media quite a bit, I had realized very quickly that I had a lot to learn and that things seemed overwhelming. The introductory course was very beneficial and scratched the surface of most of the social media platforms. I wanted to go deeper and look into how best to utilize these platforms for my business and the brand I was trying to create. Sarah worked with me on a digital marketing strategy which I now consider my bible. She got to know me, what I was trying to do with my business, my audience and my competitors. Her and her team came up with an excellent strategy that I am now implementing over the next 3-6 months. I can’t thank Sarah enough for her knowledge and creativity and I am sure we will be working closely together as I build my new business and as I continue to grow my business in the future. I would highly recommend JE Social Media and Sarah Kirkpatrick to any and all small business owners!

I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Jumping Elephant for almost a year now. Never have I come across someone so dedicated and genuinely excited to help businesses advance themselves in their marketing. Sarah has never come across as pushy for sales. Instead, she actually wants to help where she can and is willing to assist wherever possible and let the business decide if they need more. Sarah is also an amazing mentor. She has enhanced and pushed my skills farther than I ever thought I could go. Her knowledge in the industry and her willingness to learn (and teach) is continuous. If you are looking for someone really interested and excited about marketing, Sarah is your girl!

I reached out to Sarah from Jumping Elephant for support in editing a 100 page professional ebook on infant nutrition.  Sarah far exceeded my expectations; her information was clear, concise, and incredibly informative in regards to achieving an online presence that would set my products apart in a saturated market.  Her knowledge and input absolutely elevated the overall quality of my books.  She was professional, impressively hard-working, and gave me a quick turnaround time which I appreciated.  I have since attended one of her social media workshops, and will be hiring her for future projects as needed.  Thank you Sarah!

Who To Call Logo

Sarah was very effective and responsive when creating blog content for Who To Call. The quality of the blogs she created resulted in a significant increase in the engagement statistics we had seen in the past. Sarah quickly familiarized herself with our brand and the information we wanted to share with our users. She went above and beyond the work scope defined by optimizing the blog set up within WordPress. By adding some features and functionality to the platform we were able to get additional feedback on the blogs created and thus adjust to further increase user interaction. We would highly recommend Sarah.

Sarah is always prepared with specifics for each assignment she was given. Often ‘higher-ups’ give very broad direction and little suggestion to their employees but one of Sarah’s big strengths is that she is always crystal clear in her instruction. She is also very open minded to hear angles and ideas she may not have thought of yet and is more than happy to consider alternatives and go above and beyond for her each of her clients. She is an excellent communicator and will always work with you to find the best solution to meet your needs.

Jumping Elephant was hired by my company, Artinger Designs, to write all of the copy for our new website. In our first meeting Sarah asked all the right questions to find out exactly what we needed and proceeded to go above and beyond our expectations to strengthen our brand image. I was most impressed with the quality of the work presented in the first draft; they included all of the information we requested and added many key terms, strengthening the message and allowing for better understanding and readability. I also hire Jumping Elephant for my own client projects.
