I’m grateful that I get to work with clients who care – as much as I do – about doing meaningful work.

Praise for Strategy Sessions

“Adela Mei is a highly experienced natural strategist.

She understands the digital landscape crucial to today’s businesses and I am convinced she can help any company accelerate beyond what they would be able to achieve without her particular blend of digital strategy, in depth marketing knowledge and web experience.

She is an intuitive, fast thinking, digital business expert and I would highly recommend her to any company leader who wanted to see real results from a no nonsense approach to strategy and execution.”

“Having a clear set of priorities, actionable next steps mapped out to create a plan for the year, has helped me immensely. I’m so close to my work that it’s hard to see the forest for the trees. An outside perspective on my digital strategy from someone who isn’t wrapped up in the day-to-day helped me finally make some decisions that I’ve been putting off for a while.”

“You, ma-lady, are excellent at what you do. You ask the right questions, and are genuinely concerned not only about business growth, but personal growth.

I now have clarity on the types of services I want to focus on. Realizing (through our conversation) that I don’t have to do it all just because I can. And ‘doing it all’ is keeping me from massive growth. This mindset shift brings a sense of peace. Talking it out with someone who provides truthful feedback is so helpful.”

Lisa, US

Web Designer, Joli Design Solutions

“Even though I had had communication with Adela, we’d not actually ‘met’ and I am always a little anxious getting on calls with people I haven’t spoken to before. Adela made it so easy and her humour really helped!

A strategy session is such a great idea. It gave me the opportunity to fire questions at Adela and have immediate answers – unlike in an email where you have to wait for a response. It showed that she knows what she’s talking about because she was able to answer every question without hesitation. Adela made sure it didn’t feel formal or stayed. She made some really great points that are real-world and actionable immediately. She got me thinking about doing things in a different way than I had previously thought and I have now been able to move forward with a couple of jobs that were sitting on my to do list for a while.

I would definitely recommend a digital strategy session. It gives you the opportunity to ask those burning questions you will inevitably have about how you will work with Adela and exactly what she can do for you. You wont be disappointed.”

Asha Hudson

Web Design Agency Owner, Oze Web Help

“There are times when you can’t see the forest for the trees. It’s hard to have perspective on a problem when you’re in the midst of it, and thats where I was before working with Adela.

Working with Adela on my business strategy has helped me learn more about the steps I need to take to grow and propel my company.

We had a great meeting. Before we finished our conversation she encouraged me to take action building some momentum. She pointed out the bottleneck right away and gave me encouragement that helped me get motivated.

If you have found yourself feeling lost or confused in your business, and are looking for an honest, non-bias perspective, I would reach out to Adela Mei right away.”

Ryan, US

Creative Director, CST Design

“Knowing that I needed some clarity for myself and my business was one thing, but having a more targeted approach and a direction is something I always struggled with.

The biggest things I’m working on right now is developing my brand voice. Adela showed me the importance of not just talking to everyone, but finding out who you want to talk to and the importance of talking directly to them.

I enjoyed Adela’s personality and friendliness. Feeling overwhelmed and frustrated can hinder progress, but Adela was great at breaking things down into bite-sized pieces for me.

I would recommend Adela to anyone who is in need of clarity or direction in their business. Having someone that sees things from an outside perspective is very valuable and Adela does a great job in spending time learning what can help your business and where you’re currently stuck. She’s wonderful at helping small business owners get clarity!

I’m looking forward to putting the things that we’ve talked about into practice. Thanks again for your help!”

Jacob Neher, Colorado Springs, US

Web Developer, Three Shadows Media

“Before, I was worried about spending the money and I was unsure about how my site would convert to revenue and support my business growth.

Now I am much more present on social media, and consistently creating content that speaks to my audience. I’ve noticed that I feel more professional and legit as a result of having a well thought out site and ongoing support. I’ve gotten a number of inquiries about my services as a result of my new site and social media strategy, as well as more engagement.

I like my 1:1 with you the most. The support, the personalization, the partnership, and knowing that you had my back and my best interests in mind. Your wealth of knowledge having been an entrepreneur for many years helped me better understand the bigger picture in our strategy.

I would totally recommend your digital strategy services mostly because of you. I could hire any designer but I chose you because you spent time, you understood me and what I was creating and why and then you brought my vision to life.

You are incredibly encouraging, supportive and I trust you. You are invested in the strategy and in me – so when times were overwhelming, frustrating, and unclear you were steady and positive. “

Jen Rose

Fitness & Mindset Coach, The Jen Rose

“Adela – I just wanted to say how grateful I am to get to chat to you about this stuff! A little over a year ago I had some phone calls and emails with a couple different brand specialist / web and logo designers that left me discouraged with a bad taste in my mouth and no solid forward progress with my business.

When we talk about my work, I’m so grateful that you ‘get it’ and ‘get me’ and understand the branding piece at the same time! I was beginning to think those things were mutually exclusive, which left me feeling depressed and overwhelmed about building my business.

Since our chat I’ve been feeling so much more positive, hopeful and optimistic about the business side of things, and about the possibilities for growing my practice in a way that feels, honest, natural, and authentic. Thank you for that!”

Golder Goldstein, North Carolina, USA

“You bring a lot of depth, compassion, and spirituality to the table, which is hard to find in the business world.

This allows you to be a lot more empathetic – to see a problem through the eyes of both your client and their own clients and customers.”

“Adela has been invaluable to my business in 2020. I’ve recently used Adela’s services to help consolidate and streamline my social media channels and look forward to continuing our working relationship to increase my brand recognition and grow my follower numbers on Twitter and Instagram.”
Nigel Marven, Somerset UK

Director, Nigel Marven Productions

“I was so lucky to work with Adela, I am new to web design, strategy, and branding I was facing analysis paralysis, as I had been researching and watching so much information, I could not work out how I would implement it all, with integrity to what I do.

Speaking with Adela was the best thing I could have done, I need to thank Adela a thousand times, she is so knowledgeable on running businesses as well as web design all branding, website, and strategy, but she is so relatable, and really listened, what came out was that she is so generous with her knowledge and had so much perception and insight, we were able to flesh out, appropriate branding, but most importantly how to concentrate efforts on the right platforms for me to work with integrity and intention.

So awesome! Thank you so much for your insights I feel way more confident now.

Thank you Adela.”

Rebecca, Melbourne, Australia

Rowland, Kent UK

“Adela is knowledgeable in her field, passionate about helping business owners and has a gift for straight talking.

She wasn’t shy in telling me where I needed to improve, and was very clear when giving me the steps of advice for improvement and I think this is something I particularly valued about working with Adela.

We had a superb strategy session, it went a bit over the time frame as she is so easy to talk to but she kept things on track, gave me such valuable insights from a skilled eye and has given me an actionable list of things I am going to apply to my business right away!

Thanks Adela, highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a strategy to boost online presence and reach their goals, with some honest, solid, strategic advice for moving forward.”

Leo Rees-Evans

“Adela’s greatest hidden strength is an ability to combine her sense of wonder within all aspects of her work.”

David Bourne

Praise for Websites

“Adela has this incredibly intuitive way about her. She just gets it.

What I love about working with Adela is that she wants to join me on my journey and equips me with the tools I need to be able to spread my wings and fly on my own.

The feedback she offers comes from a place of love. Her eye and insight for the small details comes from her extensive experience and the passion she pours into her projects and the people she works with. Thank you again!!”

Jen Rose, Chicago, US

Mindset & Fitness Coach, The Jen Rose

“I like the fact that Adela wants to know the organization well, vision, values etc. so she can capture the soul and translate that into the website and the branding.

She’s very dedicated and organized, and thinks the website aspects thoroughly as a whole, so all the elements work together!

The end product reflects the image of all the ideas that were discussed.”

Renée

Biological Station Manager, Estación Biológica el Banco

“I wanted a website that would communicate the message of Indigo Expeditions to our customers and partner organisations, and most importantly to generate sales. What I got was so much more… not just simply a website, but a vehicle to spread the Indigo brand.

The care with which the build has progressed has been amazing, coaching me along in order to find the words for the copy. It has been like finding a new language, and Adela has been there every step of the way encouraging me to discover the words that best describe Indigo.

I love the way the website looks and feels and it has been a fabulous journey. Thank you Adela for your kind and patient advice, and inspired design!”

Rowland Griffin

International Biologist, Indigo Expeditions

“Working with Adela, I not only got a new — and greatly improved! — website and a saner, more sensible online strategy, but thru the process, I also got a better understanding of my business and my niche, who I am and how I can best serve my clients.

Less than 6 months later, business is bumping, my calendar is full, and I love the work I’m doing! I can’t imagine having gotten here without her help!

And, she made the process manageable and our calls were always a hoot!

If you’re ready to ‘next level’ your business’s online presence, and -like me- you don’t know where to begin, do yourself a favor and contact Adela!”

Golder Goldstein, North Carolina, USA

Human Potential Coach, Golder Goldstein

“I wholeheartedly recommend Adela Mei for the design and build of my website World Humanism.

Adela is extremely professional and organised in her approach, her creative flair coupled with her grounded practicality is a highly effective combination.

Adela’s input further extends into encouragement and positive input to make the end result even more powerful than I had originally envisaged.

Thank you Adela it has been a real pleasure to work with you.”

Stephanie Smith

Facilitator, World Humanism

“At Fundaselva, we knew we needed to reach an international audience to spread the word about our conservation story, but we had no idea how to achieve that.

Since Adela’s involvement in our NGO we feel confident in not only how to tell our story, but also how to manage social media and create inspiring content that engages with people from across the world.

Adela’s work has enabled us to take our conservation work into a new and exciting phase.”
