Founder of Communications NewRayCom. Social Media Strategist - Google Plus Specialist
Having worked many years as a manager in the restaurant and performing arts sectors, I appreciate the importance of approaching social media from a business and not just a marketing point of view.
I've given workshops and have written many blog posts on the importance of aligning business goals to social media strategy.
Decide on your business goals before deciding on your social media tools.
As an early adopter of Google Plus, I've invested many hours in researching and digging into the business advantage of using Google Plus. This has reinforced my view that having a presence on Google+ is a must for any business who cares about, SEO, content marketing & lead generation.
Ray is a real pro at using Google+!
I'm daring to defy the usual LinkedIn categories by highly recommending Ray. We met socially less than a year ago and, since then, I have had the pleasure of attending a presentation about social media given by Ray. Dynamic, passionate, articulate, if I understand anything about social media, it's thanks to Ray.
I had the honor to have Ray as a speaker (twice!) at an "educational" focused networking event called MEEX at KAI Design's studio. Ray's passion for social media and his vast knowledge in the field have truly positioned himself as an exceptional social media consultant!
I can totally see why companies want to work with Ray Hiltz to increase their brand awareness, client relationships, search rankings and revenues. His inputs are invaluable to them! I highly recommend Ray as a social media consultant and also as a speaker! (ask him about Google+)
Ray Hiltz did an exceptional job as a speaker at our Social Media Networking events, called MEEX. He is not only a broad-minded and ambitious professional but also an inspiring strategist. His presentations were Insightful and creative. He owns the stage and gets people's attention with his fun approach, yet serious and professional.
Ray has great interpersonal skills. Strong, perfectly organized, deadline oriented and precise on his topics - that's Ray Hiltz! Innovative team player, pro-active and with a great sense of humor. His wide Social Media expertise and wisdom and his straight-to-problems way of thinking makes him view solutions instead of problems. I recommend ray without hesitation as a Business/Social Media consultant and as a speaker for seminars and conferences.
Ray's passion for social media is what sets him apart as well as his great knowledge of - and his ability to keep up with - the everchanging tools and technologies in this field. The fact that he can apply his knowledge in different business settings is a plus and makes him a valuable partner to work with. You know you can count on Ray to come up with a strategy and solution.
Working with Ray is always a fantastic experience. His knowledge, understanding and passion for social media are viral. As a consultant or coach, he is a great listener who spends the time to understand your needs and work WITH you to find solutions and get results. As a speaker, his dynamism will keep you on your toes, don’t hesitate to invite him for a dynamic experience. He brings his language to your level for your comprehension of social media. He respects delays which are so much appreciated. But on top of all this, his creativity has no limit and his enthusiasm will make your day brighter. Working with Ray means pleasure, fun and RESULTS. I am looking forward to future collaborations.
Having worked with Ray on a few projects, I can safely say that he is a delight to work with. Not only is he a professional in a very complex field (Social Media & Marketing) but his ability to apply them in various Business contexts makes him a valued partner for my company. However his passion for the field is what makes him stand out from the rest; he jumps right in there and won`t let go until the job is done...and done well.
Hurray for New Ray!
