After attending an informative and thought provoking training session on search engine optimisation delivered by Shake It Up, we booked them to deliver a team workshop. They are knowledgeable, incredibly supportive and have increased our understanding of SEO, which is helping with the development of our website.
Heather Ramiz, West Sussex County Council
I can not emphasise enough how helpful Rachael has been from my initial concept right through to the final product. She has held my hand (in a virtual sense) on each stage and shown massive levels of patience and understanding when I have not grasped or understood instructions and requests.
If, like me, you know nothing about website building, hosting and all the associated kerfuffle, then Shake it Up Creative is your one stop shop. Brilliant.
Nigel Watson, Anchored in Sussex
Shake It Up have gone above and beyond supporting Worthing Samaritans with our 50th Anniversary celebrations & significantly raising awareness!! They are an absolute pleasure to work with and we would thoroughly recommend them.
Carol Collis, Worthing Samaritans
Worthing Samaritans engaged Shake It Up Creative to handle our publicity needs for our 50th anniversary year. We had planned a number of events throughout the year, and were delighted with the extent of coverage received. Articles appeared in many local papers and print publications, with coverage on local radio, and our Twitter activity was taken to a new level, with a consequent increase in re-tweets and likes. They obtained great deals on printing and increased our profile in the business community. We were impressed with the way they came alongside us and understood our mission and purpose. We would recommend Shake It Up to any organisation that wants a professional, approachable PR team to upgrade their promotional activities.
Our contract with Shake It Up has now come to an end but we intend to use them for ad hoc work as the need arises, and will certainly go to them again in future.
Patrick, Worthing Samaritans
We went to Shake it Up Creative with a brief to create a visual and overall look and feel for a programme we were designing that needed to speak to two very different audiences simultaneously: education and industry.
I talked through the programme with Meg and gave her some ideas of what we wanted to achieve with the visuals and she quickly came back with three words that perfectly articulated the project which we decided to use as the basis for all of our social media and print designs.
Working with the Shake it Up team is a refreshingly easy process; they listen, create and adapt, responding really quickly to emails and requests.
We’re really pleased with the visuals for this particular programme and since they were launched, we’ve had great engagement via social media, had our campaign shared with national bodies as examples of innovation and met our targets for the programme.
Sarah Freeman, Head of Project Delivery, always possible
Thank you so much for looking after me in such an individual and caring way. From the first planning of my new website you were very patient, creative and cooperative. You incorporated all my wishes, but also offered very helpful ideas and you worked incredibly effective, which results in great value for the customer. Thank you very much.
Ute Allison, Head of Candida Test & More
I really can’t say enough good things about you. You took so much trouble to get everything just the way I wanted it. You were always available with quick replies to my questions and went way above and beyond what anyone would expect. This is the second website you have built for me, are very fairly priced and I will be using you for my next website shortly. You are professional, affordable and a real pleasure to work with. Thank you.
With a view to re-branding Sussex Communications with the complete package of logo, website and stationery we attended the Worthing & Adur Chamber of commerce business event. We met several companies that day and we asked three to visit us and discuss our requirements. Shake It Up Creative were the clearest and most innovative with their ideas as to how to take us forward. Meg and Rachael work as great team and explained everything they were doing during the build of our new re-brand. They have been patience with us on the more technical side and have worked with us on building a new social media presence. Always ready to answer questions promptly their customer service is excellent. We really feel they wanted to work with us and we were not just another job.
Sharon, Director, Sussex Communications
Was great working with SIUC. After a very negative experience with another company, this was easy and enjoyable, and the work they did is great.
Dr. Scott McLean, Explore History Ltd
Shake it up Creative are a fantastic company to work with. Rachael has always given lots of her time, going above and beyond to really understand the project and the people behind it. Working with Shake it up Creative was a key reason we were successful in winning the People’s Projects, with Rachael securing a lot of exposure in local press and being the driving force behind a new support group for invisible disabilities on Facebook. They are open to new ideas and I would definitely recommend them for a creative company.
Jessica Cheetham, Producer, Root Experience
I whole-heartedly recommend Shake It Up Creative! Meg and Rachael make a great team and help you really feel like you’re part of the creative process. When I needed clarification or support or had questions in an area related to the work they were doing – they always responded promptly, thoroughly and professionally. They were a joy to work with!
Jodi, World Tree Coaching
Meg and Rachael are fantastic to work with. Professional, clear, communicative and efficient. The work that they did on my website is great and has really improved the functionality of the site.
Emily, Zola Amour
I am delighted with our new website, it’s brilliant! It will help many older or lonely people to find out about us, and consequently lead happier healthier lives.
Udita Everett, Sing For Better Health
Shake It Up Creative give a first rate service. It was tailored to me. They are helpful and friendly, no time pressure was applied, and the end result was perfect.
Karen Rainford, Dressing Rooms
Ladies you were superb. The service you provided was efficient and delivered in a transparent, clear manner. It has been refreshing working with you both!
Georgia Alston, Pinks Vintage Ice Cream Vans
Working with Shake It Up Creative to develop our website was a great experience. We work with people who are living with the effects of brain injury, so we needed to ensure that our website was fit for purpose, looked good and was easy to find and navigate.
Rachael listened to us and went to one of our support groups to find out what people needed from our website, what design elements needed to be considered and really importantly, for our service users, to ensure that they felt part of the process. It was important that their needs and those of people that would find our website in the future, were fully considered and understood. As we develop our charity and add more information to our website we are confident that Shake It Up Creative will continue to do a great job for us.
Samantha Dewar-English, Headway West Sussex
It has been a real pleasure to work with you both over the last year or so. A lot of work can get done in 50hrs. I think the main thing for me has been the chance to get my website to a state that I am now really proud to direct people to. I had been feeling for a while that my brand could do with a visual freshen up even though my business is only coming up to 5 years old. It was a niggling worry and definitely something that dampened my enthusiasm for work and my mobile website was really a disgrace before, I was actually ashamed of it!
All that has now changed and I have a brand spanking new site that I am totally proud of. It has been amazing to be able to call on them when I needed help with something in my business, up until winning the competition I had basically done it all on my own. I learnt how time and stress saving it can be to have people on the case who really know what they are doing when it comes to solving little technical or design problems for example. Since I started working with them I have had a 270% increase in direct sales from my website which speaks for itself.
Rosa Roberts, Sketchout (winner of 2016 #ShakeToCreate)
Reliable, efficient business that can react to changes quickly – quality work with a personal touch.
Michael Buckman, PACA Adult Learning
Thanks for all your help with my website so far! I could only do so much myself, I am happy you’ve been able to make my vision for it happen, better than I ever could! Working with you has also freed up my time to focus on my own creative work. It’s been wonderful working with you – easy, friendly and professional, and I’ve felt you’ve listened to what I want, and delivered it above and beyond my expectations. Thanks so much – I look forward to continuing working with you!
Carrie, Carrie Sanderson Art
Thank you for designing me a wonderful website! I am a total technophobe and found you extremely patient and helpful. I was particularly interested in Search Engine Optimisation and within 10 days of the site going on line I was on page 1 of Google search (previously I was lost somewhere on page 20) It’s really crucial for small businesses that potential clients can find you easily, and was very impressed they got me up the listings so quickly! I would thoroughly recommend them for their professionalism, efficiency and sound advice. I felt they listened to my brief and understood what I needed. They exceeded my expectations and I am thrilled with the results.
Carole Barker, Arundel Pilates
Meg and Rachael have been a great support throughout the start up of my business. This is not the first time I have used them and I have always come back to them for one reason and this is due to the high standard, fast turn-around and professional and friendly service. Technology and I are not the best of friends however the programs and software used and the training given have meant that I can now update and run my website myself. I would have no hesitation recommending them and have done!
Amanda Samain, Hire Your Day
I chose to work with Rachael so that she could manage several aspects of my new business launch – namely branding and concept, website format and design, stationery etc. She liaised with several other providers on my behalf so that I didn’t have to. She is extremely professional and also creative and gives excellent advice. All work has been turned around fast and efficiently and has been good value. I hope to continue working with her as my business develops.
Amanda Hart, Life Insight Therapy
Meg’s involvement with our family run company was engaging, professional throughout, sensitive to our goals and we believe the end product was something to be proud of. We particularly liked the ride height filter she developed to allow users to be able to decide quickly if we were appropriate for them to visit.We enjoyed working with Meg and can recommend her without reservation.
Wes Smart, Operations Manager, Harbour Park Ltd UK
Rachael has helped us with a fabulous new web site. I found her great to deal with as she was super efficient, extremely customer focussed, pleasant, patient to the extreme and very easy to deal with. I recommend Rachael wholeheartedly.
Sue Risley, Director, Baileybridge Ltd, Sussex
I have always been very pleased with the service I have received from you. Over the years I have benefitted from meeting together to discuss marketing strategies for Changeworks. You come prepared with evidence of research, you are keen to listen and understand what my aims are and I feel you offer practical and assessable options for me to take forward. Knowing you are there to be contacted when I need is really helpful. Thank you.
Lynsey Waterhouse, Owner, Changeworks Sussex
I asked Rachael to review some planned advertising along with our website and conduct some SEO research work to improve our search engine rankings. She advised on best practice and also set up some Google Adwords campaigns for us. Rachael is clearly a professional and capable marketer and I am really pleased with the results. I plan to work with her again in the future.
Tristan Green, Owner and MD, Max Wax Car Valeting, Sussex
Meg has given me so many helpful ideas about promoting my business as a sole trader with little or no budget. I have been inspired by the quality and depth of her advice, and I can’t wait to get started!
