I worked with Cheryl for many years and she is one of the greatest “task-masters” I have ever met. She not only has a strong work ethic, she also has the ability to do excellent work in a short period of time. An incredible eye for detail and her use of various technologies make writing a recommendation for her very easy. I can honestly say that Cheryl can do a great job at anything she wants to pursue. If you believe “good help is hard to find” I’m happy to say you have found it in Cheryl.

You might find this interesting, we certainly did:
It happens all the time - I step in to help a business owner with their email campaign and learn they are making use of about 2% of the functionality Constant Contact offers. It's hard to stay up on the latest, even in my role as someone who uses it every day - there are always new features being introduced. Yesterday it was a business owner who had someone make a custom template for them when they first started using CC years ago. It was giving them problems so they asked me to step in and do it for them - using the ancient custom template. Since I'm Constant Contact certified, they though
Mailchimp has stepped up their game and added a lot of nice functionality with more promised for the future, but there is bad news for everyone who was using the free level. If you are one of the free level users, here are two things you will find the next time you log in: you can no longer schedule emails to send at a later date/time. the allowable size of your address book has changed, the pricing is now determined differently, I recommend reading David Gaughran's story here or straight from Mailchimp here. I am a Constant Contact Certified Implementer, however I also use Mail
I consider myself lucky these days because I only have to keep my own work "plate" full, but in my past I did have staff and contractors that relied on me to keep them busy. In those days I was very busy feeding the pipeline, so when I saw this great resource from Constant Contact I thought I should share. It's also helpful for those individual entrepreneurs like me - we still have a pipeline, it just may not be as big. I appreciate the calendar in this piece. While it is really one of those "duh" marketing opportunities, we often are so busy preparing for a key event or recovering after
