How Was It Done?
Over the course of the 10+ year relationship, Renee worked on several high-visibility projects for Wiley. Different people within the Wiley organization would recommend Renee’s consulting services to different departments and business units.
Each time, Renee would be given a specific business problem to help solve. She would research the issue and then provide a set of recommendations or new processes to implement to solve the business problem. Renee has several testimonials from different Wiley team members over the course of her 10+ year engagement.
Since these engagements were primarily consulting in nature, the results can not be shared due to NDAs.
At a certain point, Renee was able to drastically improve Wiley’s search engine optimization and visibility for their niche websites through SEO strategies, content development and executing a video strategy. Due to internal political forces, Wiley sunsetted their niche marketing efforts.
