“I’m writing to express the Visiting Nurse Association’s deep appreciation for the wonderful work you did to completely overhaul our website. With very little instruction, you were able to capture the essence of our organization, our values and our mission — and then communicate it in a way that clearly demonstrates who the VNA is and what we do. Thank you.”
–Linda S. Cornell, President, VNA of Eastern Massachusetts
“I’m very happy with how you helped me and my team create a new site. You gave us excellent insights; in fact, you understood what goes on in my head better than I do. You’re not a 20-something who is all hyped up on social media. I have three grown children — all of whom have friends who ‘do websites.’ You’re a true communications professional.”
- Dennis Woodruff, CEO, ClearView Consulting Company
“We hired Dianna to help us optimize our site in November 2010 and then hired her to provide ongoing marketing services for all of 2011. With her help we were able to double our organic search traffic and increase our leads. She also created some really great marketing collateral pieces where none existed, including a case study, white papers, a Wikipedia page, blog posts and a monthly newsy-letter for our sales reps and distributors.Our reps were so happy, they thanked me! I highly recommend Dianna for your marketing needs. It’s a true pleasure working with her.”
- Jaylin Krell, VP Marketing, MacroAir Technologies, Inc.
“One, Dianna takes the lead on projects. With so many vendors, I end up having to do the work myself. She just gets it done. Two, Dianna absolutely knows what she’s doing. I have complete trust in her. And, three, she knows how to write and consistently produces great stuff — often with me giving her two sentences of minimal direction.”
- Susan Hodgkinson, CEO, The Personal Brand Company
“From the moment you visited and toured our facilities to the multiple drafts, revisions, and final content you were truly amazing. Thank you for holding our hand through parts, being patient with us at times, and most of all teaching us so much along the way and with such solid communication and understanding.
“We really feel this process couldn’t have been more stream-line and cohesive. Our website developer may have gone crazy without you to write content in their required format. I know their job was made much easier working directly with you. We look forward to our next project and marketing material written with you.”
- Danielle Brown, Director of Marketing, Lacerta Group, Inc.
“My partners and I love our new website and the copy you developed is terrific. I found it very easy to work with you and felt extremely comfortable placing our story in your hands. Unlike many other website developers and public relationship firms, you get it. You know that great benefit driven copy best sells the business and promotes the reader to take action. You delivered exactly as promised, which these days is more rare then you may think.Although my partner was first concerned that your lack of knowledge of the golf industry might be a liability, this was quickly resolved with the level of commitment and background research you conducted. You simply understand how to speak the business language, no matter what the subject matter. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking to grow their business or better tell their story with content that is simple, effective and compelling.”
- Ken Campbell, COO, Greenway Golf
“Dianna is an exceptional content writer and business marketing strategist, especially for the way people research, access and read content today. Initially recommended to me by Joe Pulizzi, Dianna stepped right in with her SEO and content marketing knowledge, writing savvy and overall creativity to help develop a company blog, as well as additional content.
Here are the top reasons why I recommend Dianna:
- Helpful and insightful EVERY day. Even when her schedule is maxed, she finds the time to deliver what you need, when you need it. With a smile.
- Smart marketer with a refreshing curiosity. In a world where so much changes, so quickly, Dianna continues to expand her marketing savvy and insight.
- Collaborative. Dianna works with you, synergistically — so that the initial project (or idea or storyline) is better with her input and expertise.
- Trustworthy. Publishing online can leave a brand vulnerable if facts are incorrect or an idea isn’t carefully and thoughtfully conveyed (not to mention sourced or cross-referenced). This kind of trust and integrity is difficult to find. That’s why you need Dianna.
- Fun. Dianna has the ability to find humor and fun, even with the most challenging of projects and situations — a trait so vitally important in our workloads today. She is truly passionate about what she does.
- Delivers on-time and to-the-penny on the budget. (nothing more to say about that one!)”
– Sandi McCann, Marketing Executive (and now small business owner)
“When we launched our new brand this year, we were invited to write a technical paper on our products for an important trade journal. Faced with limited time, I asked Dianna to assist us with writing. We drafted the original content in very rough form, and Dianna revised, edited and formatted our article to create the final product. She was incredibly responsive, ensured that our final submission meet the journal’s guidelines, and enabled us to focus our time on creating the best technical content.”
- David Reynolds, Business Manager, Transfinity Elastomer Composites, Cabot Corporation
“I engaged with Dianna to create a series of direct and email campaign(s) to our existing and previous clients, and targeted prospects. Dianna was extremely knowledgeable and provided guidance as to topic, content and strategy (including a social media effort). The campaigns were well written, relevant, and created the desired results. The project was well run, timely and communication was extremely effective. I look forward to working with Dianna on the next project.”
- Werner Mansfeld, President, NetLine Corporation
“We hired Dianna to help our company grow in traffic, including pushing all social media outlets and blog content writing. She has been a pleasure to work with as a person and has demonstrated results. Our social media reach has grown and is continually growing. The content of our blog is original and have shown to be one of the most popular areas of our site. She has also assisted in rearranging our website to target more viewers/readers and ultimately clients. Dianna is an expert in her field and we will continue to utilize her services.”
- Edwin Sanchez, Founder and President, New Rise Investments, LLC
“I was recommended to Dianna several years ago from my web developer. I needed a professional that could put my business on the map and increase my internet traffic. Through the use of SEO, my Internet presence virtually quadrupled in a matter of weeks. In the weeks to follow, I was responding to numerous inquiries for the properties I owned. I was so overwhelmed with the response that I needed Dianna to create an automated response system that would keep my prospects engaged until I could follow up with them personally. It has now been several years later and Dianna is the lifeline of my entire marketing program. PPC, SEO, Social Networking (FB, Twitter, Linked In etc…), Lead Generation, Lead Nurturing, and Copywriting to name just a few! She is extremely detail and goal orientated, and has an uncanny ability to make you feel as if you are her only client. In my search for Internet marketing professionals, I found many that had niche specialties, but NONE that had such expertise in all the programs my business needed. Not only did this make my job easy, but all of my programs were consistent with our master strategy and delivered the same message. Today my business enjoys a steady pipeline of business thanks to Dianna. She never rests on her laurels and continually updates, tweaks and evolves with new technology and changes in the way people do business. I could not have enjoyed all my business successes without all of her creative talents,expertise and passion for results.”
- Jeff Brooks, President, Brooks Brokerage
“Dianna was a tremendous help in editing the final version of my book “Inbound Marketing: Get Found In Google, Social Media and Blogs.” She was professional and responsive andmade the book *much* better than it would have otherwise been. She also has a great understanding of the marketing industry. I’d engage her again in a heart-beat (and have already been suggesting her to colleagues).”
- Dharmesh Shah, CTO and Co-Founder, HubSpot, Inc.
“Dianna’s expert assistance continues to be a key in contributing to the success of our marketing program. Dianna is always enthusiastic, professional and generous in sharing her experience and suggestions. I would not hesitate to contact or recommend Dianna for any marketing request.”
- Chris Oskirko, VP Marketing & Sales, Lanmark Controls
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dianna Huff throughout my career in marketing and she is now my “go-to” person when I need excellent marketing writing support. Not only isDianna’s work consistently great, she’s a delight to work with and is always in your corner. She takes her work very seriously, meeting deadlines and budgets each and every time. And she’s very good in brainstorming sessions, prodding creative discussions to unexpected and welcome outcomes.”
- Derek Gordon, VP Marketing, YieldSoftware, Inc.
“Dianna wrote for Sherpa for about two years. It was a joy working with her because I could give her an insanely broad assignment such as ‘Internet marketing in China” and she’d go out there, find her own sources, do tons of interviews with insiders, get data, creative samples, case studies, behind-the-scenes advice, and then write it all up. Most writers would have demanded a list of sources and an outline before starting; Dianna just plunged right in. I look forward to working with her again someday.”
- Anne Holland, Former President & Founder, MarketingSherpa
“Before I began working with DH Communications, prospective clients weren’t finding my site in the search engines. I received few, if any, calls from Internet searchers. Thanks to Dianna’s SEO and marketing/PR work, I now receive calls regularly. Recently, three prospective clients called my office after finding my site while searching for a local cosmetic dentist. I closed on all three cases in the same month — for a total ROI of $33K. Her work has more than paid for itself.”
- Helaine Smith, DMD
“I had initially looked at other writers, but chose Dianna because she clearly understands and practices the copy approaches I know work best. As a B-to-B marketing consultant who specializes in B-to-B sales leads, I needed someone who has real experience writing results-oriented copy. Dianna quickly grasps complex products and services, as well as marketing and sales objectives, and provides promotional copy for me and my clients that needs only minor revision.”
- Mac McIntosh, President, Mac McIntosh, Inc.
“I completely overhauled my Website summer 2006 with Dianna’s help. In addition to writing all the copy and optimizing the site, she also suggested additional changes, such as adding an online order form. The results have been terrific. In addition to high rankings in Google, I’m also getting online orders from both repeat and new customers around the globe. Dianna has also helped me understand my Web analytic reports, which in turn has helped me see how I can better spend my marketing dollars.”
- Rees Whitaker, President, Inca Gold Products LLC

- Cathy Beckman, eBusiness Manager, Cabot Corporation
“Dianna developed our WorkSkills case study — which started out as PowerPoint presentation — by deftly weaving it and phone interviews with our client into a compelling story that clearly illustrates the results our client achieved. We’re very pleased with the final result.”
- East Apthorp, Senior Marketing Manager, AchieveGlobal

- Sue Sokoloski, Director for Partner Marketing, Constant Contact

She worked with us to develop a full list of search terms and incorporated them into new meta page titles and meta descriptions for us.”
- Robin Lyness, Marketing Communications Specialist, Arbor Networks
“Dianna did a great job with our article. Not only did she get the story right, she also gave us copy that needed very little revision. We are thrilled!”
- Catherine Bonetti, Marketing Communications Manager, Beckman Coulter Primary Care Diagnostics
“Dianna was great to work with. Her simulating style of copy, which married messages of pain with the pain-relief our product offers, resonated strongly with our audience. And, Dianna’svalue-add is her ability to write in an editorial style when developing white papers and reports and then to creatively weave a compelling promotional message around these offers.”
- Dale Sleppy, Manager, Mid-Market Demand Generation, Microsoft Business Solutions
“We initially used another writer for our brochure, but we weren’t happy with the resulting copy. Then we called DH Communications. After a brief tele-conference and under a tight deadline, Dianna gave us copy that reflected our company’s personality, explained our new technology in easy-to-understand language, and was benefits-oriented. We’re delighted!”
- Anne Yount, Marketing Consultant, Express-It Delivery
