Client Testimonials

“It is rare to find an agency that cares about the success of your company as much as the success of their own. Cynthia Baker and her team work with you to make sure that your corporate goals are achieved.”

– Andy Meadows, President & CEO, Live Oak 360

“Cynthia Baker contributed significantly to the successful launch of the HDO at The University of Texas at Austin.  If you want to build relationships with key stakeholders, she is the person to select.”

– Amy Ware, Ph.D., Associate Director, 
Human Dimensions of Organizations, 
The University of Texas at Austin

“Cynthia Baker helped us to rebrand our company, develop an interactive website and share our thought leadership via blogging and social media.  This transformation has helped us to clearly communicate our value to our customers and has had a significant impact on our reputation, reach and ROI.”

– Frank J. Ripullo, M.A., Founder and Managing Partner,
Essential Healthcare Management

“Johannes and Cynthia have met and exceeded our expectations in the area of content marketing, which has significantly improved our organic search rankings through wonderful advisory articles and content.  We recommend this team to others that are in the process of inbound marketing and lead generation.”

-Vin Jauhal, Managing Director,
Wem Technology, a London based company

“Cynthia spearheaded one of the first communications firms in Austin to embrace social media strategies along with traditional PR. Not only did the firm deliver the publicity results they promised, the education they provided on social media was invaluable. It has changed the way that we do business online.”

– Joe Garcia, CEO & President, New Era Portfolio

“Cynthia and her team developed very aggressive social media plans, which included working with us on our blog design and helped us gain visibility as a leader in social media. They brought forth ideas and concepts that were derived from a keen understanding of the social media landscape.”

– Liz Arreaga, Partner, Mercury Mambo

“Impressed with the solid results that Accolades (now FIREWORKS) provided for us.  We received a double-hit of media coverage from both the local business journal and the city newspaper announcing our commercial real estate project and our site traffic increased. Cynthia knows how to maximize exposure for her clients.”

– John P. (Sean) Cummings, Founder & Owner,
Quest Realty, Inc. & Templar Development, Inc.

“In the branding process, Cynthia took the best parts of my concept and presented it in a way that the public “gets”. She synthesized the concept perfectly. Once they look at the logo, I don’t really have to say much to explain the service. I have gotten raves from friends and enemies alike regarding the website.”

– Alfred Kay, Senior Instructor & Founder;
Texas Divorce Bootcamp Seminars

“Cynthia and her team go above and beyond what you expect from your standard PR firm. They take on challenging initiatives, do it with enthusiasm that is unrivaled, and they do it very well.”

– Michael Hundley, President & CEO,
CACH Capital Management, L.L.C.
