"Dear Phillip, We were absolutely delighted that you were able to present at the ETF12 Conference and fitted us into your hectic schedule. Thank you for your fantastic contribution to the Eventing the Future Conference 2012 in Wellington. Your involvement as a speaker played a major part in making the conference such a success. Your high quality presentation enabled delegates to fully engage and learn and be exposed to the latest trends and information. Many delegates have said they thoroughly enjoyed the presentations and we will have an online survey for delegates to complete within the next few days and this will give us an indication of what they gained from the conference, suggestions for future topics and areas for improvement. This conference can only be provided for the industry with the support of speakers who are prepared to provide their time and expertise for the benefit of the industry. We particularly appreciate you giving your time and expertise to assist us. Thank you for contributing to the growth of both a New Zealand and international industry network which can only be facilitated through this conference and its functions. We would appreciate any feedback you have on future topics or speakers you think could contribute to the 2013 conference, as having now been a presenter you will have a greater understanding of our requirements and current issues.
Again, thank you for your contribution and time from both ourselves and on behalf of all the delegates."Peter Burley and Anne Hindson
ETF Directors

"I asked Phillip to assist me with raising my profile regionally, specifically by gaining coverage in the Waikato Times. Phillip then put together a press release involving the concept of a Waikato Anniversary Day. Not only did this press release gain front page lead coverage in the Waikato Times but as a result I was also interviewed on Breakfast TV and on various readio stations. In all the coverage received was very significant I will have not hesitation in recommending the services of Positive PR for achieving excellent media profile."

Louise Upston, Member of Parliament for Taupo

"Thank you to you and your team from Media PA for assisting Quest Hamilton with the organisation of the Equine and Business Networking event last Thursday. Your extensive background and network of contacts within the Equine Industry was really helpful and much appreciated. Phillip is very passionate about his work and was great to deal with. The evening turned out to be a success and the feedback received from attendees was highly positive. The event has definitely assisted with building the awareness and profile of Quest Hamilton and we look forward to working with both the Equine and Business sectors in future; providing them with a unique ‘home away from home’ accommodation experience."

Lee Hare, Franchise Director, Quest Hamilton

"Hi Phillip, I would just like to thank you for the excellent evening and event you hosted on Thursday at the fantastic new Quest Apartments. It was great to meet so many respected industry leaders both in the Equestrian industry and business in general. I look forward to getting you and your company to host an event for us."

"Phillip Quay from MediaPA was a pleasure to deal with right from our initial meeting. His motivated ideas were relevant to today’s market and his professional approach was very prompt. His passion for this line of work is very clear. Our business has now moved into a new era with some smart initiatives implemented. Phillip made a big effort to get an editorial in our local paper which was not as easy task, but really showcased our business. I look forward to our continued improvements and updates in the marketing and Social media areas with Media PA."

Troy MacKenzie, MacKenzie Construction

"MediaPA conducted two events on our behalf – a Melbourne Cup day event in November 2011 and our official opening in February, 2012. Both events were carried out in the most professional manner by Phillip Quay and his team. Phillip’s background and contacts in the equine industry were extremely helpful in the organisation of the Melbourne Cup day and ensured that this was successful. We had MPs and a number of businesses represented as well as key members of the racing industry. His large network of contacts was also very evident at our official launch with MP Tim Macindoe as well as business and civic leaders in attendance. These events assisted raising the profile of Limestone with media coverage including a half-page of photographs in the Waikato Times. We found Phillip enthusiastic and easy to work with and would recommend the services of MediaPA to other companies looking to have events, PR/media coverage and social media awareness."

To whom it may concern

We engaged MediaPA to set up our new Gateway Facebook Page as well as YouTube, Pinterest and Twitter social media platforms.
We had a Facebook Page, but it wasn’t working for us. I knew what I wanted but no one in our team had the time or the expertise to create what I had in mind. Engaging MediaPA has enabled us to have a more professional approach as well as a page which will fully connect with our students and expose them to a wide variety of industries and educational institutions available to them.
We found the MediaPA team to be very approachable and mindful of our needs and they delivered on everything that we asked of them.
 Being a school we had specific needs and they were able to set up a number of functions within the page which met our requirements. They have been every patient and even after the page was published, have been available to make changes and updates as required.
I would highly recommend anyone in the education sector to utilise their expertise and services. Thank you Phillip and Kimmy!

Kindest regards Melanie TookeDirector of FrasernetGateway/STAR/Career PathwaysFraser High School

 

"In the past 2 months we have gone up two full pages on Google from the content marketing work carried out by MediaPA and its team. Manuka Honey is a highly competitive field so this is a pleasing result for all concerned. At the same time as this occurred we ceased our traditional SEO methods."
James Jeffery, Summerglow.
"We contacted Mediapa after hearing positive comments about them from another secondary school in our area.
Being somewhat anxious about stepping into this bold new world of social media as a way of communicating with our students, it was very reassuring to work with Phillip and Kimmy of Mediapa, about how to organise our FB page in a way that reflected our purpose – namely to inform our students of our events and activities and to offer advice on how to make informed decisions relating to their career pathways.
It was also a relief to learn how to edit our settings to ensure our FB page served us in a way we wanted too.
Their service in setting up our page was friendly, prompt and efficient. They also offer an ongoing service providing advice and help when necessary.
We recommend Mediapa to any other schools considering setting up a Facebook page."Judith Lander

"Phillip Quay and his team at MediaPA are very professional.

“We have been thrilled with the business relationship Phil displayed early on, he calls regularly with updates and keeps me on track with our plan. For any start up business this is the way to go. Phil not only supports a business by getting their SEO up the Google rankings but also through publication. Exposure is vital for any new business. Over the last three weeks Phil has demonstrated something remarkable, I have watch this magic unfolding. All the businesses in Phil’s network are so strongly connected, the referrals from one another are driving their success. Media PA has taken care of all our marketing, it’s a real asset for small companies that are not in the position to employ a marketing team,”

 Jo Upperton, Marketing at Event Freak.

 

"Not only is Phillip Quay a great person to deal with, he is a genuine nice guy who is only too happy to help others succeed in their businesses. He has the ability to really move you up the Google rankings!  After just one mention of me on two of his media sites, my new business went from non-existent to first page! I couldn't be happier. I absolutely recommend businesses to benefit from Phillip's services through MediaPA.  What a great business model"- Lizzie from Road to Compassion

"GM Scientific has undertaken an extensive internet based inward marketing campaign by utilizing two marketing companies Ascend 365 (Kansas City, USA), which covers USA and the northern hemisphere, and Media PA (Auckland) an award-winning New Zealand-based company covering Australasia and the southern hemisphere.  

These two companies can provide GM Scientific with access to over 1,000 websites and internet providers.  Through these companies GMS is undertaking an extensive news articles  and information campaign on social media including Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Pinterest, as well as online blogging on Medical websites.  The campaign commenced in September 2014 and has made an immediate impact, moving GM Scientific from page 19 on Google under the search term “hemostatic dressing” up to the second page at present.  As more news stories are published and our blogging site becomes fully functional, we anticipate that GMS and SureStop will end up on the initial page of all worldwide search engines within a few months, including Google."

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to provide a professional reference for Phillip Quay, MediaPA Boost. In my experience as the International Business Executive at Fieldays International, New Zealand Agribusiness Centre and Mystery Creek Event Centre, I have had the pleasure of working with many of the media industry’s most experienced and interesting people. Philip Quay ranks among the very best speakers I’ve ever encountered. His speech on the topic of “Social Media and Public Relations  for New Zealand Agritech Companies” have influenced many of our business partners to look at this new communication channel as a powerful tool to improve the engagement with their customers.

 

Mr Quay is an electrifying public speaker. His passion for the subject matter is infectious. In just 30 minutes, attendees gain a fresh perspective on the major trends that are transforming how companies connect with customers, innovation in media technology, marketing, advertising and telecommunications. Attendees have requested more printed text from Mr Quay’s social media and communications keynote speeches than any other speaker.

 

He is a global leader in the social media/on line marketing field, well connected and is a trusted resource on emerging media and undoubtedly he brings excellent customer service to all of his clients.

In sum, it is my pleasure to give Philip Quay my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. He will deliver valuable information and analysis in an inspiring and entertaining manner to any conference or seminar for which he is engaged and will be highly sought after in this regard.

 

Marcelo Mieres, International Business Executive, Fieldays International

"Phillip Quay provides an excellent overview and understanding of modern SEO writing and the manner in which it impacts online marketing today. This course was a great introduction to the skill of writing quality content for businesses, and how to ensure it reaches your target market via social media marketing and article exposure.

As Google continues to upgrade its search engine algorithms, quality content will become more and more important to the way businesses are marketed. The techniques Phillip teaches will ensure your content will continue to rank highly on Google and pull in new audiences.

Whether you are looking for new ideas to market your business online, would like to see what MediaPA is all about, or are looking at learning how to write web content, I would recommend this course. The marketing world is turning digital, and MediaPA is right at the forefront of that movement."

We are very impressed with the service that we receive from Phillip and his team.

To Whom It May Concern,

Return To Paradise is a new resort in Samoa, open only since August 2014.

We recently retained the services of Mr Phillip Quay and his team at MediaPA to assist with raising the profile of the resort, particularly regarding a very important reunion weekend of the original Return To Paradise movie that was filmed on our beach in 1952-3.

There were two objectives to this strategy – increasing visibility of the Resort in general through Search Engine Optimization and producing articles for publication in print and online media particularly highlighting the reunion weekend.

Fiji Airways was flying the original female star Roberta Haynes (love interest to Academy award winner Gary Cooper) to Samoa for the weekend of commemorations.

It was very important that we gained maximum exposure for this event.

Phillip and his team were of great help in working towards both objectives and the commemorations were enormously successful.

 

Yours Faithfully, For Return to Paradise Resort, Ramona Su’a Pale Gilchrist

 

"I wanted to thank you for all the training you provided for our Ray White Sales Ignite Program for new sales people when I was the Trainer for Ray White Corporate.  You always went the extra mile to make the sessions on how sales people can utilise Social Media and leverage off well written informative content – inspiring, fun and informative."

"Thank you for making Moving Media’s 10 year party such a success. This would not have happened without your expertise and hard work. All our guests were very impressed with the evening event and the comments are still coming in. I have to say that your team at Media PA was very professional and both Matt and I are very proud to be associated with Media PA. This was a very important event and with only had one chance to get this right so what a fantastic company you have. We felt no pressure on the night as we knew you had it under control and you even added extra value through the night with a few surprises. Thanks again Phillip – look forward to working with you in the future."

"As a chef with a public profile targeted PR and quality social media management is key to maintaining the growth of my brand and keeping engagement with my followers high. With my recent appointment as a brand ambassador to Australian company Brookfarm, MediaPA and their Boost product has been extremely successful in promoting this as well as providing a long term strategic plan for my communications and public relations. I recommend Phillip Quay and his team at MediaPA as a very professional operation that listens to my needs, presents and puts in place practical solutions"

"During 2015, I have had the pleasure of working with Social Media and PR Expert Phillip Quay and his team at MediaPA. There is no doubt that they have some very innovative and forward thinking ways of online marketing for the Real Estate Industry which will become very successful in the years to come.
As the traditional media world becomes less and less effective in marketing properties, MediaPA's alternative methods will come to the fore as a tool in attracting listings and selling properties.
Phillip was an inspiration to me and certainly encouraged me to think outside the square and he provided valuable assistance with my new website.
I wish Phillip all the best in any endeavor, and I would be happy to recommend him and his team at MediaPA’s.

"MediaPA has been looking after the social media and online marketing for the Manurewa franchise of Century 21 for the past two years. We have  decreased the amount of traditional advertising we are doing significantly so that we can invest more in MediaPA's cutting-edge Boost product.
This product is ideal for the real estate sector as so many of our buyers and sellers are connecting with real estate through being able to search on Google. Through a combination of article marketing and strategic social media MediaPA delivers a constant stream of relevant content to our online presence and increases brand recognition from higher Search Engine Optimisation.
The story of our successful business has been promoted online. Phillip Quay has a team of journalists who produce articles for the web targeted at increasing Google search hits and web visibility.

We highly recommend MediaPA to the real estate industry."
