What our clients are saying

Yola is my high school friend and we recently reconnected due to the planned class reunion. She told me about Visually Explained, the social media for business consultancy and I thought I could probably use some help as far as my LinkedIn presence.

The 1h custom-tailored social media webinar was an eye opener for me. It turned out I wasn’t using the potential that LinkedIn had to offer. In just 60 minutes I learned how I could showcase myself on that platform and was shown few insider tricks to quickly ramp up my audience.

In just 3 weeks I went from 73 connections to over 500. I was contacted by 3 potential clients via LinkedIn and received a collaboration offer from one business. I’m looking forward to continuing my work with Visually Explained and together creating my social media strategy and a posts bank.

I’d recommend Yola to any growth-oriented entrepreneur who doesn’t have an established social media presence.

I have always struggled with posting content on Social Media, this became more apparent when I started my own business. Although I did post from time to time, I never felt comfortable about it and spent more time procrastinating about what to write rather than writing the content. When I heard about the service offered by Yola O’Hara from Visually Explained Ltd, I was intrigued as I knew I needed support in this area. Yola set me up with a bank of social media posts taken from my website, she gave me a three-month rolling schedule to post the material, plenty of friendly advice and support about the social media platforms and lots of hashtag strategies. With the material I received, I no longer procrastinate or feel anxious about posting social media content and can get on with the daily job of running my business. The amount of engagement in my social has risen by over 100% in the short time I have been following Yola’s schedule and has driven a considerable amount of traffic to my website. I would recommend Yola and her services to any business owner or company who is struggling to remain visible on social media platforms. In conclusion, the experience has left me feeling supported in my social media efforts and I am a lot happier. Thank you Yola.

Had a fabulous time at Visually Explained this week! My session with Yola was so informative and helpful, I’m so appreciative of all the information she gave me, she has made the planning, accessing and posting of my social media so much easier. Yola explained everything really well, I now have a monthly plan to follow that I understand, it’s easy to do and saves me time. What a relief! I’m absolutely thrilled, a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Totally professional, can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Yola and Visually Explained.

Yola has trained me to use Instagram and she has a very friendly approach with good demonstrations to understand what you have to do. I would totally recommend her.

I nervously enrolled on a social media course run by Yola OHara, MD of Visually Explained Ltd. a few months ago. I had never used Instagram (I thought it was just for teenage selfies) and had abandoned LinkedIn years ago. I really enjoyed the course it was good fun, interesting and broken down into simple stages. I wasn’t convinced social media advertising would work accounting, but I thought I’d give it a go and to my pleasant surprise within the last 2 months I’ve picked up 3 new possible clients and had l lots of positive feedback. I would recommend anyone who’s considering advertising or business promotion to look at this route and enrol on one of Visually Explained courses. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the results.

What a productive 30 mins. I can’t recommend Yola’s LinkedIn DIY Starter Kit enough. As you can see I can now post a recommendation! This is a great little course on how to get yourself going on LinkedIn. Yola is so easy to communicate with and makes you feel able to ask the most basic of questions with out feeling like an idiot.

Good job.

Richard Alcock

Managing Director, Cartostrip Ltd

Yola provides us with ongoing social media and infographics support. And wow – what a powerhouse of energy, insight, and expertise! She is great fun to work with, listens expertly, and comes up with stunning illustrations and animations. She is also very quick, and this suits our need to rapidly turn ideas into visualisations and get them out onto social media platforms. Also hugely impressive is the way she studies all our content and other relevant sources, and creates a coherent and attention-grabbing programme of posts across LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. We are looking forward to working together on lots more great projects. We recommend her most highly.”

Creating powerful learning experiences for senior teams & leaders, Fresh Air Learning

I have to admit from someone who was a total Newbie to both Social Media and Business Media, Yola & Visually Explained have proved to be an inspiration. Instead of spending months and months, probably working in the wrong direction, Visually Explained and Yola’s guidance has uplifted me from that Newbie status. I couldn’t recommend the team more heartily as they are great fun to work with as well as being so very professional.

No matter how much, or how little, you already know about social media, Yola’s training sessions always throw up more tips and advice. So, if you get a chance to see Yola present on a social media topic (mine was LinkedIn) I would recommend you go along.

Yola kindly delivered a mini-workshop at Fig Offices, Swindon. We had a fabulous turnout with excellent delivery and a friendly atmosphere. Everyone went away knowing at least thing they didn’t before. Yola is great at engaging and capturing her audience but importantly making it personable and relevant. It was a pleasure to work with you Yola and thank you for spending time at Fig Offices. We hope to see you again soon, Gemma

Gemma George (Lion)

Centre Manager, Fig Offices Network Ltd

Jola was a gem to work with. She trained and mentored me in my role when I began at Ti which set me in good stead. Then as our roles developed and hers evolved into graphics and data presentation she would always take the time to put forward creative ideas. Always a pleasure working as she has a great sense of humour, is supportive and empathetic, and is also an extremely hard worker with an acute eye for detail. I’m not surprised to see her going from strength to strength with Visually Explained!

Yola is great at taking the mystery out of social media and providing sound and practical advice on how you can get the most of your chosen platforms. She helped me embrace Twitter and put together an initial social media plan which wove all my chosen platforms together with my website in a coherent way. For the first time I understood how this social media thing was supposed to work for me. Thank you Yola!”

Yola’s creative eye for detail is spot on when it comes to creating impactful graphics. She always gives more than what is asked for and the results are fantastic. It’s not often one comes across a person with that special knack of knowing what is needed for a report or presentation to shine. I look forward to a long, successful relationship between our companies. Thank you!

“I have met Yola through various networking groups across Wiltshire. I have known her for over 18 months. I have always been impressed by her energy, genuine enthusiasm for her work and her fresh ideas. When an opportunity came to review my social media support I chose to work with Yola. There are many social media experts around but I found Yola’s approach honest and I felt included in the process. Yola immediately understood the lettings industry and how I would like my company to be seen. She is organised and continually communicates with me to gain information regarding new stories. Her posts are relevant and it is refreshing to have info graphics as part of her expertise.

Yola undertakes twitter accounts, mlettings Facebook and LinkedIn. Some posts have reached over 8000+ people.

I have no hesitation in recommending Visually Explained and I am more than happy for you to look at our web site to see some of the work that Yola has completed.

With Yola’s help mlettings footprint within Swindon has made a significant impact. Mlettings is known within Wiltshire and our social media exposure has without a doubt assisted us in our success.”

”We used Yola services to produce some illlustrations to help our potential customers understand more about our product. She was quick to grasp exactly what we wanted to achieve, was efficient in the production of the illustrations, and couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful through the whole process. Highly recommended!”
