Direct Theatre School Marianne and Syma are really approachable and understand the challenges of being a business owner. Give them a problem or a wish and they will come back with a plan and provide workable practical solutions. I am so grateful to have had their help and support for many years; they make my work life so much easier and richer.

Colin Young Coastal VAs created the online “office” for my new partnership basically out of nothing. They put together a complete system from email to invoicing to record keeping and sorted out all the processes and procedures. They also provided invaluable business advice and were a great sounding board while I was setting up my new business.

Coastal VAs have not only given ideas as to how to progress, but have really helped give structure to what I do and this has provided me with inspiration to make headway where I was not able to before.

Geraldine Brown - Halcyon Complementary Therapies I am delighted with my new website designed for me by the wonderful team at Coastal VAs. I believe it gives an accurate representation of my business, my passion for all things to do with Complementary Therapies and the wonderful benefits they can bring to my clients. Along with the new website, Coastal VAs created a new logo for me and I love the image of the healing hands. It is wonderful to hear my clients thoughts and experiences. With my new blog, Facebook and Twitter pages I have the opportunity to put myself out there and to interact with some amazing people.

Becky - The Antiques Centre York Coastal VAs provided training support for my role as Social Media Coordinator at The Antiques Centre York – one of the largest antiques centres in the north of England.

They are complete experts in this field and MORE. Rather than just do everything for us and send us a bill, Coastal VAs instead produced a strategy and training plan for us so that I could develop my skills and learn to do everything myself.

The whole process has been outstanding. Each training parcel has been delivered in video form, each of which I can save and refer back to. The quality is excellent – each lesson has been delivered at the right pace, with the right amount of information, in a clear form, at the right time and all in the right order. In addition, we speak regularly and they check in on our progress to see how we’re doing, tell us what we’re doing well, and where we can improve things.

The result? Our goal was to double our level of likes, shares, re-posts, re-tweets and SALES over the course of 2014. If I tell you that we’re nearly there and have 5 months to run, you’ll see that Coastal VA have been excellent for my employer’s business.

Moreover for me personally, I’ve learnt some really useful skills that I will benefit from in my future career.

Thank you Coastal VA, you’re a brilliant bunch!

– Becky, The Antiques Centre York

Wonderful service from Coastal VAs in helping to design my website. I had been struggling with several ideas that were not taking shape at all. Marianne and Syma took all the pressure off and helped me start right from the beginning, building colours, theme and logo. I now have a lovely website that I am really pleased with, which reflects who I am and what I do.
