Ilona, [the consultant], was incredibly kind and helpful - the webinars gave me useful information on email communications & best practices, and the 1:1 really helped me with additional feedback on what would work best for my specific organization. This was a great on-boarding process - thank you Ilona and the Smart Start program for your investment in our success!

I loved having the webinars and 1:1 consultations. Using the online materials is great, but Ilona brings it all together in one quick session.
I thought I knew what I would do with my new Salsa subscription. I had no idea how much was possible until I participated in the Smart Start Fundraising program. The information was presented in a way that was easy to absorb and, more importantly, to implement. My consultations with Ilona made me feel more like a partner than a customer and I felt fully empowered and ready to tackle (or at least fundraise from!) the world!
The content was relevant and useful. Our Smart Start trainer, Ilona, was easy to work with, professional, and engaged well with our team. She explained everything in a straightforward and clear way, and was terrific in following up with our questions.
