“When I completed Social to Sale I felt confident about using Social Media. I've had my business pages up and running for a couple of years now, but what I learned in that course was a complete game changer. I can now run ad campaigns with confidence and target the right market to achieve the end result. We are posting more images of our products we carry and we are seeing people come in and ask for them specifically. We have grown our followers and are about 1000% better at responding to messages and comments - making the experience for people personal rather than like a corporation. I'm better equipped to manage Social Media and help my staff do that as well. Thank you!”

"Even though I have been in business for 25 years, Social to Sale has shown me how lacking I am in basic strategy and customer focus. I hope to take all the info you’re providing and take my business to the next level! Thank you so much."
Owner / Heart of the Country
"I learned more today in an hour concerning social media and how it functions than I have in the years I have been dabbling in the medium. Your webinar was concise and fortifying. I started the webinar with trepidation and left it with renewed confidence. Thank you for providing my lightbulb moment when all the pieces finally made sense of this frustrating puzzle known as social media. I am very grateful for you and Americasmart for making this possible."

"I absolutely love all your suggestions and will be putting them into action ASAP!!! I have just been winging it so I need this great feedback. Also I just wanted to say that I have already learned so much from you ladies. Because of you I started doing the forward facing videos and also the Plus Size Wednesday Stories on Instagram

"Just wanted to touch base and let you know how much I loved the Facebook Live course I took the Fall. I learned SO MUCH!!! It was so worth it for me and I am so glad I signed up. You all put a great presentation together…I have probably rewatched it 20 plus times, so much to learn and absorb. Very grateful that I have Insider membership. All the best and thank you again for all you do."
Owner / Sassy Sorority
"I wanted to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for these past 3 days! I went into this course knowing that you are ‘the real social media deal’, authentic, caring and determined to help people understand social media. You all exceeded my expectations beyond anything I could have imagined!! You helped me walk out and say, 'I got this.' Thank you, thank you, thank you….on so many levels!! You all ROCK!!!"
Owner / The Good Life Boutique
“I am overflowing with information and ideas. Got lots of great ideas from my review with Pauline (she was amazing!) and I’ve already been working on some of them. Even though you don’t know much about a violin shop, you really pointed out the weaknesses. If we want to sell high quality instruments, we have to show people that we have them!! Love Social to Sale and the Insider membership. This is exactly what I needed.”
Owner / Huthmaker Violins
"Wanted to let you know that I have been asked by our city Economic and Development group to speak at their next meeting for small business owners on how to use Social Media to market to their customers. The lady in charge of it said I do the best job in town with Facebook and she would like me to share my story and how I use it everyday.
So just another shout out to you, as I am only good because of what you have taught me."
Owner / The Pet Authority
“My sales were up 23% for the month of December! I do feel a big part of it is because of the social media presence.”
Owner / ZaZu
“Someone came in and said they saw our Facebook ad. They live 5 towns away but clicked on the ad, went to the website and Facebook page and said, “That’s a place I want to go”. They came into the store, bought $200 worth of merchandise and signed up to become a frequent shopper. We went into December down 20 % for the year and ended the year up 5%. I really think a large part of that is due to the Facebook ads.”
Owner / Revolutionary Concord
"I have had other store owners in my area notice how good my social game is looking for my store. I have you and your team to thank for that! Thank you for pushing me outside of my comfort zone and allowing me to make me better at my business. Thanks!"
Owner / Taylor Made Designs
“I am so glad I signed up!!! The information I've picked up so far - how to use Canva, how to advertise an event - that little video you did on advertising events was Awesome! – Everything has been very helpful - Thank you!”
Owner / Tail Waggin' Pet Stop
"We’ve had our brick and mortar store for a little over 5 years. I’ve been a CM Insider member for a little over a month and just learning about how to make audiences has been worth what we will pay for an entire year of Insider membership!!! And we're tracking results. Thanks to Crystal and all of you on her team. Most of all thank Crystal for being real and approachable not a celebrity-like blowhard! "

Hey Crystal, I have some very exciting news to share with you. We just landed a contract with a company that owns three wedding and event venues in Columbus Ohio. This contract is for us to design all the florals for all of their 255 plus weddings for 2019. The value of this contract is worth over $350,000!!!!
This all started over Facebook when they messaged us asking if we would be interested in being considered for this. This took nearly a year for it all to come together and it happened!!
Facebook is a powerful marketing tool and just the over all connection opportunities.
Co-Owner / Bloomtastic
"Social to Sale has literally been the best thing I've spent that kind of money on. The results in a few short weeks have been great, I finally feel like we have a direction, and the advice we've followed has had a huge positive impact! Our traffic and sales are huge right now -- we've found when our engagement is up on Facebook (for ex: we had over 36,000 views on a product video from what we've learned in Social to Sale) our store traffic and purchases are almost double a normal day. We keep doubling our daily goal, and online sales are up too. I highly recommend Social to Sale!"
Co-Owner / Hawthrone Boutique
"Two years ago, I literally held my finger over the "sign up now" button to take part of Crystal Media programs and live training; I'm so glad I didn't let fear hold me back. For two years now I've learned social media from the best in the industry. Crystal Vilkaitis and her team have been life-changing for my business."
Owner / Nostalgia on the Square
"Love this program. Training is intensive but it is broken into small enough parts to be manageable. Crystal and her team are very responsive if you have any questions. Frequent updates for all the social media changes."
Owner / IPA Education Supply
"Crystal Media has been super valuable. Been slowly working my way through the TONS of information offered! But seeing results with everything I've tried so far :)"
Owner / Willy and Babbish
“Just wanted to mention I have done a few live videos and have tried every type of post except for the canvas one. Also, we do a weekly Friday Favorite video of an item in our jewelry store as well as some other videos. Wow! When I stop and think about it... I’ve come so far with your help!! I’m slow but steadily plodding along. I know I would never be able to do this otherwise and would add I enjoy your enthusiasm and listening to you!”
Co-Owner / Leighton's Fine Diamonds
“A big thanks for your teaching because it’s helping me build confidence with my social media.”
Owner / The Gift Life Boutique
“I found this program extremely helpful. After the training I feel like a pro using Facebook ads, I know obviously, I still have lots to learn, especially since social media changes quickly, but you gave me the confidence that I was doing the right things and that they would pay off! We're seeing lots of people come into the store from social media! One of the most beneficial things the training did for me was it put my social media managing into a schedule. I was able to still do the other things I needed for the business and not feel overwhelmed! You and your guidance sparked a love for social media within me, since completing Social to Sale we have been nominated for the small business marketing award for our city! Hard to believe I knew nothing about social media marketing before meeting you!"
Co-Owner / Cloud Nine Pajamas
"Through the Social to Sale training, my Facebook likes have exploded and continue to do so, giving me new customers. And I'm shocked at the exposure I've gained on social media for our new wedding venue - which is now books into 2018! (Note - testimonials sent April 2016). I cannot say enough about Crystal, from the confidence I have gained, to simply changing my way of thinking about social media. I can truly testify that social does sell. And with Crystal's help, it sells a lot! Thank you!"
Owner / Mountain Lake Campgrounds
"Social to Sale opened our minds to the importance that Social media has on a modern-day business. It guided us to which media platforms to effectively target existing customers and how to attract new customers. All of which at more cost-effective methods than traditional marketing channels. I recommend Social to Sale to any progressive business owner."
Co-Owner / Anna's Flowers
"In two months of implementing what I’ve learned, sales are up 15% and 31% over last year, my average transaction has increased 11% and our average customer count per day has increased by 8%. I’ve never sold out of a product so fast after putting it on Facebook! Oh, and I also cut my radio advertising by $1,000. Thank you once again for helping me take my business to an entirely new level."
Owner / The Pet Authority
Crystal Media has helped considerably with marketing our Austin, TX jewelry store. In this brief time we have gone from very little marketing to an amazing array of strategies. The online tutorials are available for easy access and Crystal is very fastidious in answering online questions. She is a young professional who “gets” the future social media world and we give her an A+ for her knowledge and professionalism. Thanks Crystal!

I just finished watching the Expert Interview Series with Jon Schallert. Thank you for posting this as l have found it very informative and enlightening! Lots of valuable information that will definitely be going into action. Fantastic job you are doing and I am so glad I signed up with you!
The Crystal Media program has been invaluable to our company as we navigate the ever-changing landscape of social media. I believe Crystal's clear and easy to understand training and resources are a MUST for any retailer wanting to maximize their success. We were able to run several successful campaigns and see results beyond our expectations by following her recommendations. She is there to help every step of the way and genuinely cares about the success of her members.
Social Media Coordinator / Christian Supply, Inc.
As a busy retailer, I don’t have the time to keep up with the fast-changing world of social media.
Crystal Vilkaitis is my “secret weapon”. Her presentations demonstrate her deep knowledge of the subject and her membership site, Crystal Media, does what the name suggests: Gives you the edge in all things social media. I’d recommend Crystal without reservation.
Owner / Bloor West Winery Inc.
Your training videos have helped me so much with our Facebook page in the few weeks we’ve been a member. I’m looking forward to attempting Instagram soon, too! Thank you for your help!
Assistant Manager / Westende Jewellers
I watched about half of the Instagram training course so far and have learned a lot. I already tried Hyperlapse and put the video up on Instagram for fun. I had no idea you could do that! You inspired me to try some new things and gave me the tools to do it! Great training course! Thank you, Crystal.
Owner / Pet Pangea
I’ve come a long way. You gave me a direction for what to do with my social media and gave me confidence when it comes to marketing online. Even doing little things I learned in Crystal Media gave me big results. Watching your webinars I thought ‘someone would never come that far to see me’ but after doing the Customer Profile inside of Crystal Media Insiders I learned that my perception of my customer was wrong. So I ran Facebook ads targeting people 50 km from my store and I couldn’t believe it, they came in! They had never been to my store before but now know of it because of Facebook. I was hesitant on purchasing CM Insiders because of the price, but I’m so glad I did. It’s been more than worth it the investment. Thank you.”
Owner / Caseluca
I am encouraged by your encouragement! I appreciate your advice and thank you for all of your help. You’re an awesome coach!
