“Deana was an integral piece of rebranding INJA FIT in the spring of 2016 with her evolution of our ‘Brand Play Book’ and ‘Apparel line’. She took the time to speak to me on the phone to truly understand the concept of my business, the key players, and how we plan to move forward in the future. She is an added asset to anyone looking to forward their company and branding.”
Jen Jewell, Owner INJA Fit, March 2017
“To whom it may concern,
Deana Srdic did some marketing consulting work for my massage therapy company in early 2014 for a three month period, as an independent contractor. She created a full marketing plan for us to follow and implemented mainly the social media/online aspects of this on our behalf.
As we were fairly new to social media, Facebook being the only platform we were using (and very sporadically), Deana strengthened our online presence by doing regular posting on FB as well as Twitter and Google +. We saw a drastic growth in followers (including client interactions online) as well as our ranking on search engines (on which we wouldn’t even show up on the first 3 pages of a search). We have been following her suggestions since she completed her work for us and are currently the 5th link on a local Google search for ‘massage therapy Victoria’. The majority of our new clients come from the internet and I know that is thanks to Deana!
Her and I actually had been friends for many years prior to her working with me, so I can recommend her on a personal level as well. I’ve seen her efficiently manage her work/life balance over the years as she had completed grade school & her college program. She has always has maintained a healthy schedule; incorporating the things she is/ was passionate about (dance, exercise, healthy eating, family & friends) around her busy school or work schedule.
Though I’ve known her as a friend first, she has always remained very professional when we’ve had interactions in work environments – I’ve always appreciated how focused she is.
I’d be happy to answer any specific questions you may have about Deana so feel free to contact me if needed.”

“Deana Srdic was our Social Media person in 2012. Initially hired for a three month period, she worked so well that I extended the contract for another three months. She prepared a strategic marketing plan and then implemented it. I am pleased to recommend Deana to any business that would benefit from expert social media marketing.”
Barry Sharp, CEO AMA Management, April 2016
“I have worked with Deana for the past two years and I am most pleased to write this letter of recommendation for her. Deana is a team player and she truly believes the team is only as strong as its weakest player. She supports her team with regular feedback and is always open to receiving input and suggestions. Deana’s decisions are based on what is right for the team and the business rather than for her own advancement. She stresses regular team meetings to monitor progress and welcomes feedback. Her meetings are always open for all to share their thoughts and ideas and she treats everyone with great respect and is a cheerleader for all.
I believe Deana is wise beyond her years and is always searching for new avenues to benefit the business. I have found her to be eager to take on new projects. Deana welcomes a challenge and is keen to learn new skills.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Deana for the past 2 years and it is with a heavy heart that we will be parting ways. I have learned more working with Deana for this short time than I have in my previous 20 years of sales and marketing. I am confident that whoever hires Deana in the future will be more than pleased with her work and will find her to be truly a nice person.”
