What people say

We have noted below a few nice client comments although we do have some reservations about testimonial pages, which you probably share. After all, only a company that’s a good few sandwiches short of a picnic is going to include anything negative. However, if further feedback would be helpful or you’d like to chat to any of our clients about us, we’re always more than happy to put you in touch.

I thought I could write.  I thought I could word my website effectively.  I thought I could get my message across authentically.  But now I’ve been Marilyn Messiked – and I realise I was just too close to see clearly.  Marilyn, you have managed to write my messages with clarity and efficiency whilst maintaining my personality in every word.  You seem to be able to read your clients better than any psychologist!  Thank you so much.  You have taught me a huge amount and continue to inspire and get me out of trouble when I’m stuck.  Which means I will see you soon.

There is ‘always one, and it is always Marilyn’ for that I am eternally grateful. I love her humour, tenacity and at all times her fairness. One of the most generous, honest businesswomen I know.

My clients require a consistent voice for their brands, and I go to Marilyn. Always. I have worked with Marilyn on a myriad of projects over the years – she always hits the mark. She has worked on my agency’s materials, she has worked on client’s materials, she has worked directly with people that I have referred her to, she has given advice and recommendations. Marilyn is a consummate professional who understands a brief, even a very woolly one, and a deadline, even if ridiculously tight. I don’t just get the perfect words I require for a project, I also get to enjoy her legendary sense of humour and fun. And to top it all, she is a copywriter who walks the walk and is a successful published author. And on that note, her books are great too! I’m always more than happy to recommend Marilyn.

Just wanted to let you know our new website is up and running, with all the wonderful text you supplied. We’re really pleased and have already received some lovely feedback, along with a promising boost to sales since it went up two weeks ago (keeping Helen and I rather busy!). Thank you for all your help with the new content and for all your brilliant ideas. I’ll be sure to recommend you in the future and will certainly be heading back to your services next time we need some clever wording.

Marilyn Messik – fierce, feisty, funny, utterly professional, always consistent – a small but solid tower of strength!

Jane Milton

Food Industry Expert

Marilyn has been a wonderful source of powerful words. She knows just the right flavour and ingredients to make a piece of copy delicious. She works with a great sense of fun; I would recommend Marilyn again (and again), I know the task will be delivered with excellence and the process will be a pleasure.

Photographer and Graphic Designer

For starters, allow me to state that I LOVE Marilyn. She’s full of energy, full of nonsense, and full of great ideas! This has always been the perfect mix for me – who wants someone stuffy with boring old perspectives when you could have a dynamo like Marilyn? Whenever I have a “bright idea” she’s one of the first people I contact for a “sanity check”. I refer her to others regularly and if you’re looking for practical, business savvy insights a little “spark”, then I suggest you contact her immediately!

Storyteller, trainer, speaker, Start with Story

Working with Marilyn is a very easy process. You tell her what you want to say and why and Marilyn converts it into compelling language your reader wants to read. Sometimes we get too close to our work and we need someone with more perspective and a different approach to bring what we into focus with clarity and creativity. Marilyn can do that standing on her head! I look forward to future liaisons and have no hesitation in recommending her to put your thoughts into words that get your audience’s attention.
