Consulting Testimonials

 

Mark Siegel, author of Sailor Twain and the 5 Worlds Series (Random House Books for Young Readers)

“Fauzia is a unique and mighty ally in an author's career. Conventional marketing models grow less effective, and promoting your work can bog you down in today's constantly changing landscape. Fauzia's guidance emphasizes quality over quantity, and proves itself over and over, offering great propulsion to your social media engagement. Her coaching is rocket fuel for the creative professional."

Scott Wintrip, Author of High Velocity Hiring: How to Hire Top Talent in an Instant (McGraw-Hill)

“In writing my new book, I had direct control over just a handful things—picking the right agent, choosing the right publishing deal, writing a really good book, and doing my part to promote it once published. I knew that I needed drive the marketing of the book, but I lacked the expertise to do so on my own. Sure, I could have tried to figure it out on my own or research the web for ideas. However, doing so would have been at great risk. Would I get it right? My book was too important to take that chance. That is why I hired Fauzia Burke as my advisor. She offered practical advice, simple approaches, and honest feedback. Her wisdom helped my book launch as a #1 hot new release on Amazon. Plus, I’ve gained knowledge I’ll use for years to come on my current book and the ones to come.”

Anne Michaud, Author of Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives (Ogunquit Press)

“I learned so much from Fauzia about creating an appealing PR approach, setting a book marketing calendar and organizing priorities. Book marketing can seem overwhelming – there are so many possible approaches – but Fauzia steered me in the most productive directions. Not only that, she taught me to apply patience when necessary. I’m most grateful for her personal style, which is consistently upbeat, friendly, humorous and authentic. She made me feel supported through what can be a daunting process, publishing a first book. I’m forever grateful.”

“I can’t recommend Fauzia Burke highly enough. With my first book about to release, I hadn’t a clue how to get my message out there. Fauzia, with her warm heart and confidence, put me at ease, took the reigns, and skillfully delivered. Thank you, Fauzia. Working with you was the perfect choice!”

Luann Robinson Hull, Author of Happily Ever After…Right Now (HEARN Publishing)

“Fauzia Burke has a unique blend of talents, which make her almost super-human. She is the first marketing professional I’ve met who has been able to break down the daunting task of building an online profile into something actually fun and exciting. In addition to my one on one meetings with her, which I always find inspirational, I have attended her all day workshop on on-line marketing, beautifully designed, delivered, and orchestrated—chocked full of valuable information that actually feels doable! Not only is Fauzia warm and approachable, I feel she is utterly invested in my success—like I am the “only one in the room,” despite the impressive list of clients she shepherds with her remarkable skills and magical approach to mentoring. If you are privileged to have an opportunity to work with her, grab the chance when she’s available! It will be one of the best decisions you will ever make in your career.”

Brent G lass, Author of 50 Great American Places: Essential Historic Sites Across the U.S. (Simon & Schuster)

“Fauzia provided a valuable digital strategy for promoting my book. She understands the book-reading and book-buying audience and helped me understand what I can do to build awareness of the book through social media. She is accessible, responsive and thoughtful.”

Renee Linnell, Author of The Burn Zone (She Writes Press)

“Working with Fauzia has been a life-changer.  Not only is she very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely respected in her field, but she is also personable, fun, and incredibly humble.  She is both a marketing expert and a coach.  Every step of the way I feel as if she has taken the time to truly understand me and my goals, and has been willing to constantly adjust her marketing strategy to make sure she aligns with my heart and my truth.  One of her traits I admire most is: she is pleasantly bossy.  She does not sugar-coat.  She tells me exactly what she thinks and how she feels, which is a huge relief, and she does so in such a pleasant way.  I honestly am struggling to put into words how much I admire Fauzia and how blessed I feel to have her in my life and as a part of my team.  She is an incredible asset and a true blessing on this planet.  She is a sparkle of joy and a powerhouse of a marketing leader.  If you get the opportunity to work with her, grab onto it with both hands and don’t let go.”

Jonathan White, Author of Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean (Trinity University Press)

“After interviewing five of the top online marketing and social media firms in the country, I chose Fauzia Burke.  From the start, she was remarkably clear, intelligent, organized, and productive.  She and her team did wonders for my book, and I can’t wait to work with her again.  As far as I’m concerned, she’s the one!”
