What do clients have to say about working with Arik and ACH Communications?

Arik is an excellent partner for us. He provides down-to-earth, implementable ideas that we can do something with immediately. He also pushes us to think about how we can create and use content outside of our comfort zone. We are starting our third year working with Arik. He serves as another set of eyes and ears in the social space for my small team. The best part is, Arik is a wonderful person, which makes working with him easy!

-- Kendra Klemme, director of communications and public relations, Starkey Hearing Technologies


Arik knows social media. I hired him to analyze the social media strategies of several organizations, and he provided a detailed analysis of what they were doing right...and what they could do better. He's fast, responsive, and knows his stuff!

-- Christopher Quam, consumer insights manager, General Mills


“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.”

“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 HudsonBraun 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.”
