It felt really good to bring our thoughts together about where we want to be and dig deep into how we are going to get there.

Just when I thought finding a good marketing consultant who was not just looking to make a quick buck it was hopeless, I met Colleen. Wow! Does she know her stuff and is willing to share insights to set you on the right path to success. Colleen provided me with terrific feedback, clear direction and honest support that enabled me to build a successful marketing strategy and develop solid content. I'd recommend Colleen to help you with your market research, positioning and other communication needs. Not only is she really good at what she does, but she has integrity. From where I sit, you can't beat that! Thank you Colleen.”

“Colleen's knowledge and capabilities were invaluable in developing and implementing the plan for client intelligence and go-to-market research for our new coaching program. Colleen conducted a client focus group followed by research interviews with key route-to-market stakeholders to identify key benefits for all stakeholders. The feedback received from stakeholders regarding Colleen's processes echoed our experience of working with Colleen; she is extremely competent and professional in her research skills. Colleen's research reports provided critical information for developing comprehensive marketing collateral. Colleen added value as we refined our marketing collateral and our initial communication launch. We appreciated Colleen's capability and capacity to work within our timelines and set a pace toward the launch of our new coaching program. We recommend Colleen for her knowledge and ability to develop, implement, and complete market research projects with a high-level of professionalism that builds relationships with potential clients.

“I highly recommend InsightONE and Colleen Cronin. Colleen has worked for us on 2 projects over the past 5 years.  Her business and marketing expertise, insights, recommendations, customer-centric focus and ability to get to the core issues has benefitted us tremendously.
Most recently, she helped us craft customer-centric and referral partner messaging, improve client engagement and develop strategies that competitively positions our unique core service offerings. Her process recommendations enabled us to operationalize our client and referral partner engagement and strategic marketing tactics. The result has been a renewed focus, a re-energized team, increased client satisfaction and revenue and a better dialogue with our referral partners for a stronger position in the market.”

“Colleen Cronin of InsightONE delivered an excellent Expert Speaker Seminar to RIC Centre’s technology startup clients. Colleen focused on teaching the audience about market research, customer validation, and B2B sales process. Our attendees were given expert advice and lots of real world examples from diverse industries, which made it easy to connect theory with practice. Colleen made the seminar interactive by getting the attendees to introduce their businesses at various points throughout the presentation, which helped create a lively networking session at the end of the event. RIC Centre thanks Colleen for all of her efforts in educating our entrepreneur clients and we look forward to hosting her at our future events.”
