Jill was recommended to me by my small business coach/mentor. It was very clear that I had no idea what I was doing with LinkedIn which made me question its value. After working with Jill, I had a very clear understanding of why investing in my personal profile as well as the profile for my company was important. I was very impressed with the methods used to gather information and turn it into LinkedIn assets and content. I had a lot more information rolling around in my head than I thought! With that information, Jill developed an incredible strategy, executed her parts and gave me my to-do list. The result was more than I could have hoped for. I now have profiles I can be proud of and a schedule for maintaining them. I cannot recommend Jill highly enough – she is not only a LinkedIn expert, she is incredibly nice person that makes getting great results fun.
Pete Filicetti, Kingsman Technology
Jill did a fantabulous job in developing my digital media marketing strategy! Jill was timely and thorough. She even provided suggestions for timing of each social media type, and she also provided ways to measure success for each. In addition to the strategy itself, the timing and success measures will definitely help me execute in the digital media world.
Kim Farrington, KTech
Jill is the ultimate professional. She is extremely detail oriented and employs strategies to keep her clients on track with their projects. She really takes the time to understand you, your business, and your goals. I highly recommend Jill and her team!

Renea Burkholder, StraitSys
Jill worked wonders with my online presence. She has taken what I consider to be a complex set of topics and made it understandable. She has really good sense. I am so appreciative to have such a great resource so close by.
Barbara Mikula, Mikula Acupuncture
For the rollout of my author’s website and social presence, I wanted a professional image. KDS delivered perfectly, from design to cross-implementation to ongoing support. When writer friends jokingly teased me that I probably needed to up my writing skills to match the quality of my website, I knew I had chosen the right company for my business.
Donald Furrow-Scott, Sahhaar Publishing
Kurtz Digital Strategy was instrumental to organizing our online marketing efforts. Jill expertly analyzed our needs, most of which we didn’t even know we needed, and developed a simple strategy that we could actually implement. As a startup, we were constantly learning and evolving; however, Jill’s patient guidance kept us focused on the implementation of our strategy to maximize our limited resources. We can’t say enough about how great it’s been working with Jill and I’d recommend her services to anyone looking to grow their business.
Charles Kachadoorian, President, Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe
Jill crafted an online presence for my business that now draws my ideal clients to my website.

Jill Kurtz has been a pleasure to work with. From the first point-of-contact, she took the time to get to know our business and our specific needs. In one phone call, she was able to identify what mattered to us as people and professionals and put together a comprehensive program and approach to improve our online presence. She saw the gaps in our existing approach immediately and had a detailed plan for how to make changes. She identified priorities, so it never seemed overwhelming. She walked with us step-by-step to ensure results. Given the demands of our business, we were challenged with our availability for Jill. She was persistent, but patient, and always willing to step up to help or adjust expectations as we moved forward. In addition to all of her exemplary professional work, she was fun, light-hearted and understanding. I have already referred her to other business professionals and would proudly continue to do so. She is top-notch and a pleasure to work with!

When my new business, Transitions with Care, needed a website, I called on Jill Kurtz. I had heard her speak at Chamber of Commerce events and knew she would understand what I was trying to achieve.

What I like best about working with Jill is the way she drives a project from start to finish. Not only does she do excellent work but she also takes responsibility for completing the work on time and on budget. She is on top of the details and keeps everyone else on track too. It is a true pleasure to work with her.
Judy Schramm, JMR Consulting
Kurtz Digital Strategy gave our company website a facelift. Our site was beginning to show its age. It was hard to maintain and looked old-fashioned. We are so pleased with our new site–it is modern, streamlined, and easy to navigate. Jill also taught me how to make periodic updates to our site so I can put up new pictures or projects and put up or take down staff bios, etc. as the make-up of our company changes and grows. Having a new website creates a sense of pride with our team! We are grateful to have found Kurtz Digital Strategy and would recommend them to other businesses in need of a website or a website re-design.
Christina Eppink, Enegis
I am so happy I began working with Kurtz Digital Strategy. Jill is well versed in how on line marketing works thus presenting a strategy that is formed around you and your business. When I first met with Jill, my design company was 3 years old, I was networking a lot and received word of mouth referrals, but no one ever visited my website or found me on Google, Houzz or the many other online directories.
In less than a year, I’ve received at least half a dozen clients through online directories, and at least a dozen inquiries! Did I mention that all of these inquiries happened after I moved from Virginia to Texas?! I kept my business in running in Va and expanded to Texas.
I also rely on Jill to do the editing and publishing for my newsletter and blogs, refreshing content on Houzz and my website. She even got my MailChimp in order! I highly recommend her if you want to double, no triple your business!

As the owner of the Platinum Group Real Estate team I understand the importance of a strong online presence, but where to begin! It is overwhelming, stressful and time consuming to figure out … then we met Jill! I learned more from her in our first meeting than I had in years of trying to figure things out on my own. She explains things simply and in an easy to understand manner. Very quickly she identified our needs, and then worked with us to select that which was most important for us to focus on within our budget. We’ve been extremely happy with the results, and know that we will return to Jill and Kurtz Digital Strategy again and again.
Karen Cooper, Platinum Group Real Estate

Jill is amazing. I have worked with her for many years, and she has kept me impressed for the duration. She is a master at juggling multiple projects, and making every single client that she works with feel like they are her top priority.
Chrissy Rey, Pongos Interactive
Jill’s brain thinks in methodical steps… something that can often be lacking in a creative agency that thinks in twelve different directions at once. Being able to have her “herd the cats” and write out a digital process to bring consistency to our execution has been invaluable.
Jen Sterling, Red Thinking

Jill has that truly rare hybrid skill set of understanding technology AND being able to explain, in laymen’s terms what’s happening, so she can effectively manage the process for you. I can’t sing her praises high enough.
Samantha Villegas, APR, SaviPR
The job was to put together a marketing and social media strategy and program. Jill put together a very complete plan with components that included not only traditional ones (print media, Facebook, etc.) but also some new ideas that we think will bear fruit in the coming years.
