Working with ACH Communications

“In a world full of “social media experts,” Arik is the real deal. As former Fairview colleagues, I knew that Arik had a solid foundation of communications, marketing and public relations expertise to provide an integrated approach to social media strategy. Arik and I successfully implemented a variety of interactive marketing projects to leverage Metro Dentalcare’s partnership with the Minnesota Twins during their first year at Target Field. We also saw great success educating moms about proper oral hygiene for their children using multiple blogger outreach campaigns. Arik is a true thought leader in the industry and I could always count on him to keep me in the loop about social media best practices, trends, industry findings, upcoming technology, etc. I recommend Arik to anyone looking to achieve an actual ROI on their social media strategy — not just likes, retweets or blog hits.”–April Meyer, hired ACH Communications at Metro Dentalcare

“I have had the pleasure of working with Arik on several occasions and each time leave more and more impressed with Arik’s ability to tailor his message to a variety of audiences and see it stick with them well beyond his presentation. Arik spoke at last year’s Alphabet Bash, a networking event for Twin Cities’ marketing, communications, advertising and PR professionals and it was fun for me to sit and observe all of the heads nodding in agreement as soon as Arik shared his words of advice. Arik kept a captive audience with his unique perspectives and is a tremendously energetic and engaging speaker. Additionally, I called on Arik as a social media consultant to help environmental engineering firm Braun Intertec utilize various social media channels and launch an internal blog. Arik was tremendously effective at communicating the importance of social media to a professional services firm that wasn’t familiar with how their brand could benefit from tweeting, blogging and Linking-In. I would jump (and jump high) at the opportunity to work with Arik on any occasion.”–Ellen Hudson, hired ACH Communications at Braun Intertec

“With a solid grounding in traditional PR, Arik was perfect for helping to shape our social media program at Feed My Starving Children. We had popularity (22,000+ Facebook fans!) but little engagement going on. He did an audit of our industry, identified models for us to aspire to, and gave us great content ideas across platforms. He advised us to deploy private Facebook Groups for key internal tribes, coached us through a solid hire for SM management, and has always been responsive to the odd pop-up question. I highly recommend Arik to help you start out or mature your online engagement.”–Holly Donato, hired ACH Communications at Feed My Starving Children

“Arik is fabulous to work with. He is detail-oriented, always available to the client when needed and provides high quality work. I’ve worked with Arik in a number of capacities at Mall of America and have always been impressed with this work. He truly cares about his clients, is always working to improve their workflow, keep them informed about current events and opportunities to grow. Arik has been more than a colleague to me over the years, he has also been a great mentor. I would highly recommend ACH Communications if you are looking for quality work along with a great working relationship.”–Bridget Jewell, hired ACH Communications at Mall of America

    Hi Arik, I’m glad I found you on Twitter a while back. I was born and raised in Minneapolis ‘burbs and moved to California for a “big opportunity” six years ago. So whenever you mention a Caribou coffee meeting, I get a little homesick.

    Next time I’m back home, maybe we could meet up for coffee.

    Great meeting you at Indies lunch today. I’m sure I’ll be in touch as needs come up to pick your brain–and I don’t expect it for free when it comes to a firm client. Nice to have good back up with new strategies.
