In early 2011, I decided to take the “Developing a Social Media Strategy” class offered by UCI and tought by Mirna Bard. The first class was so captivating and engaging that I immediately knew that I was going to be able to take away a lot from the class. Only within next few weeks, I was able to not only learn the Social Media topic, but also design and produce a concrete Social Media Strategy at work.
Mirna has this unique knack of pointing at the key issues that organizations of all size face pertaining to designing, implementing or tracking a sustainable Social Media Strategy. During the class, she identified to us an enhanced and out of the box methodology to use social media for engaging our current and potential customers; one that I thought was strategically different, game changing. I have been in the Digital Media arena for almost a decade and a half, and I don’t too many individuals who are as bright as Mirna Bard in the field. I am extremely pleased to get this opportunity to recommend Mirna Bard.
As the senior marketing executive at my firm, it became fast apparent that social media was transforming my discipline. An old dog with 20 years of education and 30 years experience had to learn a whole new set of tricks. Mina Bard brought me to the promised land.
Mirna Bard is an extremely knowledgeable instructor and social media expert. Her class was one of the best I took at UCI. I was able to take her guidance and turn it into a strategic and effective social media campaign for my employer and our long-standing annual client event to increase awareness, engagement and attendance in the first year I applied these principals. Thank you, Mirna

Mirna understands the intricacies and the ever-changing climate of social media marketing in a way which helps me maximize my exposure and build my platform. She is a joy to work with and I would recommend her without reservation.
Mirna is an amazing social media consultant and kindly shares her expertise to the students of the University California, Irvine. Her classes are extremely engaging and insightful, and her weekly calls allowed us to exchange some great ideas as well as answer some of questions. I highly recommend Mirna both as a consultant and instructor, and hope that she goes on to lead other future classes!l
There are a lot of digital consultants who claim to be social media gurus, but Mirna is truly the real deal. She has a comprehensive understanding of all conceptual and practical aspects of social, and is constantly providing real-time recommendations that demonstrate an absurd depth and breadth of insight and expertise. She also practices what she preaches with both clients and colleagues alike, by offering an endless supply of wit, knowledge, compassion, and mentorship - sometimes, all in the same breath. She is a tremendous asset to any company looking to not only grow its social market share, but sustain that growth for the long-haul.
"Hi Mirna. I went through the contact steps after following on Twitter, newsletter sign up and reading several posts on your blog. All of this so I could respectively with some etiquette send you a message about how cool I think you are and relevant on topic etc. BTW, I want to make the social graphic a poster for my office. Going to read the free chapter and probably buy the book. You strike a cord some how in a VERY crowded field.
My interest is personal as a consultant, but also for a new agency we are nurturing called Visability.ca and visabilitymarketing.com , which is an emerging evolution of the need of the traditional publisher to move into new ways and means. Keeping you on my interesting potential speakers list for our events division and simply taking the time to reward you with feed back that you have a really convincing and strong web presence for your expertise. Good luck and best wishes from Canada. You Rock, girl."
"In talking with Mirna on the radio, I could ‘feel’ her willingness to listen to her clients and make recommendations on ‘their needs.” If you would like to hire a social strategist, hire someone who cares. If I need social media help, she would be the first person I would call."

I really appreciate Mirna’s energy and excitement. She is engaged in what she teaches, and gives you the tools and clear understanding when it comes to social media.
Thank you for all the great advice during the consult. You so know your stuff! Mirna Bard gets to know your needs before spewing advice. I so like that. It's like getting custom-tailored insight to social campaigns.
Mirna! Just letting you know that your strategizing with me on the promotion of my husband's film project worked. We raised the funds - including a pledge from director Kevin Smith! How cool is that?
Thank you Mirna for giving me great advice and lots of tips! I learned so much from you in just one-hour. I was overwhelmed and lost in the online marketing possibilities. You gave me something that was missing that I needed: a clear strategy. Thank you for showing me the way. I'm very excited!

She's is extremely knowledgeable and very generous with her information and experience. It is an excellent investment and very worthwhile."
"Hi Mirna. Your Social Web Success Blueprint program was fantastic. I learned a lot. I think one of the biggest things I learned was that I need to use my face out there more so people know I am a person on the other end. I get the robot response a lot when I attempt to reach out to people on twitter."
"Your presentation was very impressive and I had no idea, being in banking, of the impact of social networking until I attended your discussion."
"Hi Mirna. Thank you very much for the very informative presentation. It was better than all the books I’ve read so far about social media. Thanks again."
"You are very welcome! Your presentation was fabulous and very insightful. The videos you showed on sociolnomics just blew me away! You made some excellent points on why we shouldn't just dive in and then get stuck not knowing what to do next. That was my experience for sure! I started messing around with twitter and then got overwhelmed after a couple of days! Please keep me in your database and I'd be interested in your upcoming webinars. Thanks again for speaking to the group! Have a great rest of the week."
"Mirna- I totally enjoyed your presentation at NAWBO Tuesday evening. It was awesome and I expected no less. You have definitely earned the title of Social Media Maven, and more! Thanks for sharing. It's appreciated."
"Social Media has been outstanding for our business. It is the new wave of the future and it's here to stay. I can't tell you how many awesome relationships we have developed from Social Media, not to mention an influx of customers. Mirna is extremely knowledgeable in Social Media and is teaching some rockin courses. Listen up, she knows her stuff!"
"I hired Mirna to help me with SEO on my website. I had used another SEO company before and found that they really had not done much to help me. Since I have hired Mirna my traffic has increased significantly. She has also advised me on areas of improvement for my website. Since our initial contract I have also hired her to train my assistant and myself on the intricacies of using LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook in business. I would highly recommend Mirna to help you with SEO and social networking needs!"

"My experience during that conference working with Mirna was superb, and I have had her speak at other events since then, including Los Angeles (July 31st), a networking function in Washington, DC in September, etc.
Mirna’s style is very down to Earth. She provides an atmosphere that allows myself and the audience to feel comfortable with her, and comfortable enough to ask her questions and not feel that we are being talked down to. She always provides more information than is expected, and this is appreciated by the audience.
She doesn’t hold information back, and this makes her a valuable and worthwhile speaker."
Cool Blue Company LLC
"After using two SEO companies with absolutely no results. Mirna was able to coach us through the process and taught what exact questions we needed to ask, and what red flags to look for, we were able to find the right company who finally got us on page 1 of Google. Thank you!"
