Several of my clients have engaged 6s over the past 10 years and the feedback has always been great. In addition to this Chris and John continually share their best practices and marketing insights at conferences and events... even with their own competitors. They have a true community focus and that's why many of their competitors have come and gone but they have stood the test of time. Case in point: My agency organized Social Media Week Vancouver 2011 and 2012 and the advice that Chris gave from stage personally helped me get our websites ranked #1 on several competitive terms. Community focused, results focused. Enough said.
