To Whom it may concern,
I had the pleasure of working with Joel Gratcyk on his Five Iron Frenzy social media/marketing campaign. As a Five Iron Frenzy fan myself, I saw their Facebook page grow from no activity to 20,000 plus in a matter of weeks. He was responsible for creating a "mysterious" countdown, promising to tell us some news about the band, on their site and Facebook page, that kept us fans in suspense for months. When the day came that they announced they were getting back together the fan response was so overwhelming, that the bands kickstarter.com project exceeded their goal of $30, 000.00 in the first 50 minutes. They went on to break kickstarter.com's record for highest funded music project. Similar bands have had similar campaigns, but sadly without Joel's help, did not have the same success.
Joel is professional, courteous and responsible when it comes to representing his clients. He is exceedingly knowledgeable about developing technologies in social media and web development.
I highly recommend him!
Joel has worked with our missions organization, Fuel International, off and on since he was in high school. He is easy to work with, communicates effectively, and puts together excellent work. He has a heart to serve which is often difficult to find in the secular realm. We would recommend Joel to anyone wanting web designs and other computer and internet media projects completed with excellence, creativity, and in a timely fashion.
Joel has a tendency to attack a problem or opportunity with a voraciousness that I haven't seen in anyone before. He yields incredible results and always seems to be one step ahead. His creativity and aptitude is unparalleled in the circles that I work in and I work in the live production industry which is typically peppered with creative minds.
I've found Joel to be enthusiastic, proactive, and a real pleasure to work with. He is innovative and flowing with ideas, and he has proven to be personable and diplomatic in implementing them in a creative environment with multiple stakeholders. I highly recommend his work.
Joel is a hard worker and faithful to the task in front of him. :)
