What Our Clients Are Saying…
“When we came down to New Orleans with Ellen, Amy was our local point person. She ran the whole operation on the ground for us – coordinating our whole crew’s stops throughout the city – which included a tour of the Lower 9th Ward with actor Brad Pitt. Amy is the best – professional, fast and incredibly smart.”
We turned to Multimedia Solutions to grow our brand new business, and Amy has over-delivered. She has gotten us on the news countless times, and we continue to be impressed with her ability to re-invent our story to make it relevant to the news media. We tasked Amy with creating our Facebook and Instagram campaigns, and our following has exploded. She has also produced two television commercials for us, to which we have received raved reviews. Amy wrote all of the content for our new website, which can be directly connected to a major increase in sales. She has also re-done our brochures and other marketing materials. Amy is always available for phone calls or meetings, and always shows up with a positive, “no-quit” attitude. We couldn’t be happier to have Amy on board our team.
Amy opened our eyes to PR and marketing strategies we hadn’t thought of. She provided the opportunity to showcase our animal hospital across many different avenues. In a four month time period, Amy got us on the news three times. We were also written about in several magazines. Amy has the contacts needed to open up your business to a vast array of media outlets. From Facebook to TV commercials to print articles, Amy has proven she has what it takes to put the media spotlight on any business she works with. She is very dedicated, well-spoken and extremely professional. We strongly believe other businesses in the community can benefit from her expertise and talents.
I’ve had a successful practice for 25 years, but wanted to take it to the next level. I contacted Amy Barrios at Multimedia Solutions and had a brainstorming session, where I let her know my goals and as well as my limitations. Within four days, Amy contacted me to let me know several advertising solutions she had already put in motion and basically told me to get ready for a TV interview the following week! My practice has had an amazing amount of exposure and is thriving. Amy is a creative, tireless coach and she has had so much experience in the industry she knows exactly who to network with for the most results. Awesome!
Amy delivers the goods. We worked with her to generate media interest for an event, and from the word go she brought a strategic approach and a practical roll-up-the-sleeves attitude to the table. Her network of contacts knows no bounds. She nailed the pitch, and we generated a clean sweep of coverage across all the local networks, and print media outlets.
We hired Amy to manage our multi-faceted social media program after getting sub-optimal results using a large national firm. The change has been very rewarding, as Amy increased our online presence and sales exponentially within a few months of taking over the account. In addition to the exceptional job she has done with our social media, she has also opened the door for us to additional value-added marketing opportunities that yielding results. We would highly recommend Amy to any company that is looking for a proactive and results oriented social media and marketing partner.
Amy helped our business grow exponentially and connected us with the right people to take our business to the next level. Because of her media background and extensive list of contacts she was able to get us media coverage, increase our Facebook presence, and create excitement about our business and services. We were extremely impressed by her dedication and attention to detail.
As a former prime time news anchor and veteran journalist, I have had the privilege of working with some of the best in the business... but none better than Amy Barrios. She is one of the sharpest minds that I have been blessed to have in my corner. Her work ethic is impeccable. Her research, writing, and comprehensive skills are superb. As a producer, she has few equals. I am equally awed by her creative genius, as demonstrated by some of the examples cited by her impressive resume. I couldn't hope for a better friend, or business partner.
Amy was fantastic to work with! She always came prepared and had plenty of ideas regarding marketing. She was able to get us multiple opportunities of television exposure in a short period time to help with brand recognition. On top of that, she is a pleasure to work with!
Amy Barrios and Multimedia Solutions helped transform my new business into a recognizable brand. Amy is persistent, creative, but offers sage advice. I would not hesitate to use her again.
It was a great pleasure to work with Amy on Local 632's PR Campaign. She not only coordinated the campaign, but brought lots of energy to it. I can't say enough about her passion for what she worked on. Thanks again for a job well done.
I can't believe how lucky I've been to work with Amy Barrios. Her dedication to our story, ability to translate complicated issues, and make sure every media outlet heard from our coalition have made all the difference in our campaign. There isn't a better ally to have in your corner.
I want to thank Amy for all of the hard work she did for the Fire Fighters, our department and the City Of New Orleans. The media campaign, spearheaded by Amy, to pass our dedicated "fire millage" was a great success. It produced millions of dollars for Fire Fighters and solved many costly problems facing our citizens. This was necessary to bring conclusion to a 30 year battle of "Fairness for Fire Fighters." We are extremely pleased with the excellent results and I will not hesitate to call her again. I'm keeping her contact information close and look forward to our next endeavor.
