Lynette is an incredible energy bullet. She knows how to take your product and blast news about it organically and creatively on social media platforms. She understands that the key is to "engage" with people to ignite relevant discussion in social networking. This Fire Chief from Firetalker PR has well-rounded experience in many areas--but if you are writing a book you'd be crazy not to contact her! Authors should allocate marketing dollars and give the Chief a call!
Cindy Rakowitz • CEO, BR Public Relations; Founder & Chair Fit 4 The Cause
I engaged Lynette with little notice to help promote an event I was hosting. She jumped in with both feet and generated buzz in places I didn't even know existed. She's an expert networker and understands how to position clients for maximum exposure and recognition. She really went above and beyond in her deliverables. AND, she's super fun! I highly recommend Lynette and Firetalker PR.
Charlie Magee • Experienced Franchise Advisor with FranNet Helping Clients in Washington State
Lynette is vibrant, at ease with her knowledge, and engaging in her presentation. As one of the coordinators of a workshop in the May 2009 intake group of Experience Unlimited, Oakland, she energized our group by showing great knowledge of her subject matter, great enthusiasm to learn more and a deft presentation method that encouraged active group participation.
Emmanuel I. • Marketing Department, Experience Unlimited
Lynette, the ‘Fire Chief’ is a very energetic, motivated person who gets things done. Her work with the Butters Canyon Conservancy has been instrumental in increasing fundraising dollars through Conservancy events, as well as increasing awareness for the Conservancy through her tenacious public relations efforts. She is a ‘shot in the arm’ and we love her. We have asked her to be a member of the board, and she has accepted. We recommend Lynette highly for any nonprofit.
David Barron • Attorney, Cassidy, Shimko, Dawson & Kawakami (now D Barron Law Dot Com)
Lynette is outstanding public relations. She knows how to get the job done with professionalism and grace. She is excellent at what she does. If you need to get the word out about your event, call her.
Valeri Bocage • CEO, Powerful Women International
I have been in business for 18 years and have spent a ton of money on PR. I can honestly say that Lynette’s company is the only one that I have ever used where I felt I got value and results for my investment. Lynette works hard, she gives her clients 100% and she makes things happen. I recommend her often.
Caterina Rando • Best-Selling Author, Sought After Speaker, Thriving Women in Business Community, Magazine and Giving Circle, Expand Your FEMPIRE Summit, and Thriving Women in Business Community
Lynette is a miracle worker – within hours after meeting her, she was on the phone with her contacts telling them about me and my firm. She was able to get me a high exposure speaking gig at the Chamber of Commerce, which was great for my credibility and she also got me a full page interview in the Sunday edition of the San Francisco Examiner. And she even got me coverage in the Business Times, which led to a huge new account. Lynette constantly has my business in mind and is quick to suggest creative ideas to get on the radar of the business community. Besides being a pro, she is a delightful person and a barrel of laughs. I highly recommend her and Firetalker PR.
Alexandra Watkins • Founder & Chief Innovation Officer, Eat My Words
Lynette continues to open up new markets for us through Social Media. Her work has been so good that I’ve had to put some other business interests on hold to focus on the large numbers of people who have signed up to learn more about investing in Real Estate by Remote Control. Real estate is a highly regulated business. Lynette (Hoy) took responsibility of promoting my seminars on many forms of social, including active publicity on several platforms that helped us reach an entirely new audience, all without raising any red flags or exposing us to legal entanglements could have impacted the entire operation.
Adiel Gorel • CEO of the International Capital Group
Lynette Hoy does not just get exposure. She has the expertise and the connections (with the media) to get the right kind of exposure to not only sell books, but establish me as an authority in the crowded arena of so-called experts. Lynette prepared a great Pressroom for me. She has not only media coached me for appearances on television and radio, she also prepared the person who would be asking the questions so they would know the questions to ask that made them feel professional, without being force-fed a predetermined vanilla script from a publicist. The questions they asked encouraged lively conversations about topics that are at the heart of my book.
Sharon Ballantine • author of “The Art of Blissful Parenting,” and founder and CEO of the Ballantine Parenting Institute
Lynette invited me to speak at the National Association of Professional Women's Seattle chapter meeting for Women's History Month. Throughout organization and execution, Lynette displayed complete commitment to her field and everything involved with public relations and promotion, including putting time into a thoughtful and compete introduction at the beginning of the event. Lynette's energy and enthusiasm are evident immediately and she regularly comes up with new ideas for letting people know about products and events, bringing her experience in a number of areas to bear on each new project.
Shannon Huffman Polson • Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Adventurer, Veteran
As a first time author, I engaged with Firetalker PR to promote my book, “My Pink Room.” Lynette is creative and insightful finding new opportunities for promotion. Her team has great insight and helped me to navigate the world of publishing. They did a very successful Amazon KDP campaign that landed me #1 Best Seller Status in ‘memoir’. Firetalker PR is well networked and fun to work with. I would definitely work with Firetalker PR again.
Kathleen Gallanar • Best-Selling Author, and Talent Development Director at Shawmut Design and Construction
Lynette worked with me on a real estate seminar project. Her knowledge of the promotion side made the event a great success. I would recommend Lynette as a great public relations and publicity resource. She is creative and will make sure that her client gets the most exposure, based on the client's needs and budget.
