About Ellie's Consulting Services:
"We have sold seven alpacas since I read your books and did the
consulting work with you on website copy changes. That was the end
of August, and we exceeded the dollar amount we set as a goal at
that time in these last four months. Thank for that ... Thanks,
too, for a great and fun day on Saturday. It was wonderful to hear
you speaking about things I had read in your books!"
"I always think about you and all the help you have been to
me - I had almost 50 doelings (we had quad doelings and 3 sets of triplet doelings) and 12 bucklings born this March and April and I sold down from 21 milkers to 10."
"Using just a few of things you have
written - really attitude - of what I have added to my normal flair for marketing, I
am sold out. I didn't' get less than $350 for a kid nor less than $400 for a milker, and the last one to go is being
sold for $800.
"As others around me are selling out I marketed my animals into the new homes of those who want family milk for
this recession/depression we are going into. All with one ad, sort of copied from the soap ad you did for me. I
know a lot of my success is because of you!"
"Last fall I wrote to you about my fears regarding moving our farmers' market from a visible but outgrown location to
a larger and beautiful but off-the-beaten-path location. We had done all our homework to ensure a smooth
transition. Still, many, many nay-sayers continued, right up until the opening bell of the market to express their
assurance that no one would find us... that our decision was a fatal one and that we would fail.
"You encouraged our organizing committee to believe in ourselves and the opportunity for success our move
represented. AND IT WORKED.
"Our first market day drew over 5,000 people... a new RECORD for us. We are located in a small, rural area... not
a city! People came from all over the state and neighboring states too. In addition to TV news coverage, the move
also brought an extensive article in the state's largest newspaper and beautiful, huge photos on the front pages of
two other papers the day after the market's opening.
"We just wanted to share our good news. The nay-sayers have moved on to new complaints... parking problems!
We'll work on it... but that's a GOOD problem to have! Thanks for your support!"
"I am also thinking of new applications as I continue to work on the
materials. I work part-time as a chemical dependency counselor with adults
and was thinking that some marketing approaches might help touch the
heart and lead to some additional motivation, especially with the group
we have in treatment now."
