Testimonials

“I have been working with Verushka for almost a year now. I lead the Dubai Tourism account for South Africa and Verushka is seen as an influencer in the tourism sector. She has been an amazing brand ambassador for Dubai and the coverage and reports she posted on Dubai, were phenomenal. More importantly she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Always responsive and keen to assist and support.

I highly recommend her as an influencer, and I look forward to our continued relationship.”

“As the South African representative of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA), we engaged with the services of travel blogger Verushka Ramasami (www.spicegoddess.co.za) to accompany a media trip of South African media and bloggers, to attend the official 50th Anniversary of Independence celebrations in Mauritius in March 2018.Apart from a number of detailed and descriptive blog entries that she posted on her popular blog site following the media trip to Mauritius, Verushka was also very active on social media during the trip. She uploaded a host of beautiful posts and images onto her social media platforms, including Twitter and Instagram, that we were able to share and repost on the MTPA social media sites, creating a buzz and much interest in her trip to the island.Verushka was a pleasure to work with and delivered content way beyond what we expected.As a result, we will definitely consider including her on another media trip to Mauritius in the future.”

“We work extensively with ‘brand fans’ (influencers, bloggers and media).  Here’s why our long standing relationship with Spice Goddess has worked:

 

–       Verushka builds a relationship with the brand team (it’s never a ‘one hit wonder’ campaign with Spice Goddess)

o   She knows when my birthday is, what dogs I have and where I last travelled to …

 

–       It’s a win-win which is imperative for a successful programme:

o   We try to always listen to her needs – we try to ensure she has items that she loves and needs (she needs to be seen with our products to be truly authentic ie not just blog about them and put them away in a cupboard)

o   When we need a favour – she is the first to promote something for us

o   We share the love

  • Spice Goddess likes and shares our relevant posts – and we do the same with her blog
  • When other brand managers / PRs that need a great ‘brand fan’ to work with them on a relevant campaign – we recommend Spice Goddess
  • When ‘newbies’ approach us – one of our ‘checks’ is to ask our trusted partners – including Spice Goddess – what their insights are.
  • She knows how we work, what we do and don’t like and so if she knows the ‘newbie’ – she will know if they will work for our brands

 

If you’re planning to collaborate with Spice Goddess – you’ll soon agree that she is a gem.  Feel free to contact me  if you would like any further insights on how she has created authentic and brilliant content for us ….”
