“While receiving counseling through the San Gabriel Valley SBDC I've had the opportunity to meet and work with Andrew on numerous occassions. He has been instrumental in helping me to create and implement fresh and effective marketing concepts to promote my practice. Andrew has also helped me to improve and maximize the ROI I was already receiving with some of my existing marketing.

“Before I started working with Andrew, I felt stuck in my interior design business. I had been trying to find a way to improve my marketing efforts and raise them to a higher level.All of my previous marketing attempts had failed miserably. I am great at my trade, but, had never been able to market my services. I was just relying on word-of-mouth.
Then the economy turned south and a huge part of my regular clientele just dropped away. They weren't buying anymore. I knew I had to change in order to survive this new market and to find the marketing strategies I needed to make my business a success.
A friend told me about Andrew and I signed up. He was very patient listening to me and fully considering all aspects of my business. For the next several months, Andrew became my mentor as a small business marketing specialist. He opened my mind and taught me many new strategies.
He is a marketing genius! Andrew showed me some specific new ways that I could expand my business, helping me to create new avenues to attract clients and also products that give me passive income. He helped me to develop some taglines and an image that I could connect with and build way beyond what was currently in existence.
Each visit, I left with pages of notes that I could implement and find more outlets for new clients. I am only attracting my ideal client now and my business is beginning to grow. I am doing more of the work I really enjoy and less of the work I don't. I am excited about my work now and know that I can have the business of my dreams. Best of all, tafter working with Andrew for just 3 months, the average sale from each client tripled.” April 7, 2009

“Excellent advice on improvement of marketing pieces, from ideal client to attracting clients to selling directly to clients. Excellent advice on psychological aspects of clients. Excellent advice on website design and ad design.
Mr. Barden's knowledge goes beyond what is taught in the classroom for business, and addresses how to effectively market, which in this economy and for small business, is absolutely essential for survival. His tools I can implement immediately and effectively. If you have a small business and need help growing, he's got solutions. Thanks Andrew!” March 25, 2009

“Over the course of almost twenty years as a director of several business development and economic development programs in the greater Los Angeles area, I have had the opportunity of interviewing and working with literally hundreds of people in different capacities as trainers, consultants, counselors and business coaches. Three years ago,
I had the opportunity of meeting Andrew Barden at a business retreat and conference. Since then, we kept in contact and watched him evolve as a business coach and trainer. When I learned that he was relocating to Los Angeles, I immediately asked him to join our team of Business Counselors and Trainers at the San Gabriel Valley Small Business Development Center (SGV SBDC), hosted by Mt. San Antonio College (Mt.SAC).
During these twenty years, I have developed a unique skill of spotting good talent. Andrew is an exceptional talent. When I witnessed his mastery of marketing concepts and high energy during counseling with our clients, I knew that he would be a great asset to our team. His work ethic, positive attitude, spirit of service, and caring for clients are hard qualities to find these days.
He is exactly the kind of person I want to work on my team. Andrew is very well versed in marketing and sales. His understanding of the psychology of consumer behavior gives him a winning combination of skills that produce results for our clients. He understands how to implement marketing strategies that produce the best results in the least amount of time.
His training and presentation skills are so unique that he engages the audience in ways I have not seen before. He delivers the content with a combination of entertainment and know-how that gets great accolades.” November 1, 2008

“Although I've only been working with Andrew for a relatively short period of time, he's already brought tremendous value to my business with his in depth knowledge of marketing and sales and overall business strategy. Part of his philosophy is to show up giving, and he does exactly that right from the start.
He is very fast paced, hard working, has a great attitude, and is an overall pleasure to work with. He comes up with very creative and innovative ideas that you can apply to your business right away. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone.” July 30, 2009
Erin Mester, CEO, LifeSpeed Corporation, Los Angeles, CA
“"I give Andrew a huge recommendation. My business is successful now, but just three years ago I was working at a private school and not enjoying it in any way.
I had lost the love of teaching I once had and was dreading going to work for someone else everyday. I really wanted to start my own business but I wasn't sure what would be the best bet. Because I never started a business before and had little capital saved to start a business, I was pretty unsure what my next career step should be.
I had witnessed Andrew help other business owners so I asked him to help me strategize and for the next year or so he helped me build a successful in-home tutoring business serving San Diego and the North County area. He both hooked me up with other consultants with special knowledge of business growth strategies and personally mentored me for about 200 hours.
I started my business with less than $10k in capital and I now manage over 15 tutors who travel every day to help students improve their grades. He even helped me name my company "Better Report Card Tutors," because the end result of a better report card is what parents care most about. He helped me develop a simple yet effective marketing strategy, and execute various marketing campaigns, including helping me develop a website which you can visit at BetterReportCard.com.
He also helped me execute a post card campaign, including guiding the design, picking the photo, and helping me write the sales copy. He helped me stay within my budget and attract my first group of clients. As a consultative sales specialist, he helped me develop a sales script (when clients call) based on the marketing campaigns and now I have close rate of over 50 percent.
For every touch point, from when my client first reads my marketing pieces or pay-per-click all the way to closing the deal and signing a contract, Andrew has helped me optimize the sales process, using words and images that most encourage my prospective clients to take action.
He is a powerful strategist and "brain-stormer" when it comes to small business growth strategies. The investment in Andrew's consulting has produced a manifold return, giving me an advantage over my competition and helped me enter a very competitive market place with strength, which in turn allowed me to turn a profit my second year into the business, much faster than most start-up businesses.
Again, I highly recommend Andrew to both start ups and existing business owners who are looking to grow their revenues, reduce their risk in developing marketing campaigns, and ultimately grow their sales faster. I'm happy to even give you my phone number to answer any questions.
Just call me at 760.230.4572. If you are looking to make more money in your business, Andrew has marketing solutions that produce strong ROIs. Give him a ring. You'll be glad you did. ” July 27, 2009
