What Sam’s clients say
“One of my favourite people ever, the amazing Sam McFarlane from Sam Says.
Sam is a social media and content manager and today she took us through some great tips on managing your social media and getting familiar with your content pillars. As someone who loves to talk, I find getting onto social media and speaking up pretty easy, but was I clear on my content pillars before today? No, I was not. But now I am! Thanks Sam!
“What do you want to be known for?””
- Rosie Shilo, Virtually Yours
“Thank you for all the work you do behind the scenes a Changeable that makes us look GOOD! We appreciate what you do for us!”
Georgina Banks and Sam Crock - Changeable Consulting
“Thank you for being such an active member of the Mums with Hustle community and especially for all that you do as an Administrator inside of the Mums with Hustle Biz Club! I can’t thank you enough. It’s been an incredible 3 years and we appreciate you.”
Tracy Harris - Mums with Hustle
“Sam is a gem. She is reliable, responsive and professional. Sam also shows initiative - makes suggestions and is always up front about her fees (which are incredibly reasonable).
Importantly, Sam is also a very warm person. She is genuinely interested in the work of her clients, and manages to smile during even the trickiest of projects.
As a sole operator Sam makes my life so much easier as well. Things get done with a minimum of fuss. If for any reason Sam can't help me she will point me in the direction of people who can.
I feel so fortunate to have Sam as part of a very small team.”
Max Hardy - Max Hardy Consulting
“Sam is a highly efficient, reliable and personable virtual assistant. I loved having Sam work for me as I knew what ever tasks I set her she would complete them to a very high standard. Sam takes great pride in the work she does as I do, so I felt completely comfortable having her represent my brand and communicate with readers on my behalf. I look forward to working with Sam again in the very near future.”
Nicole Avery - Planning with Kids
"Sam, I just wanted to shoot you a quick text to thank you for your time the other day. If you hadn't popped over for those couple of hours I wouldn't have grasped our new CRM system so quickly (and it's brilliant)! You're a gem. Thanks!"
Lucinda Makrakis - Arbonne Independent Consultant
"It can be hard giving someone access to your business and giving them control of your business. I was initially fearful of giving anyone access to any of my social media accounts and emails. Sam was the absolute professional. She has access to everything, maintained her role and also went above and beyond. She foresaw issues, addressed them and then advised me.
After several weeks of working with Sam, she basically began to read my mind! She knew what needed to be done and acted on is straight away.
I rarely had to ask for anything. I never had to check her work. She was extremely thorough.
HIRE HER IMMEDIATELY. "
Jemimah Ashleigh, Entrepreneur, Mentor, Social Media Influencer
"Sam was our Event Coordinator for our annual conference and exhibition, ATSA, for two years. For a few months leading up to the event, Sam would come onboard and coordinate our 60+ sponsors and their exhibition requirements - not an easy job! Sam is efficient, very easy to work with and was definitely my calm within the storm! Nothing is too big or small and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again."
Andrea Ives, Smithink
Thank you for taking such good care of my clients while I was away. The feedback has been positive and I am really happy to have you as my back-up.

“We have been using SamSays for all our social media shouts for over a year now, and couldn’t be happier with her services!

We highly recommend her to anybody who doesn’t have the experience or time to keep up with their social media.”

"I recently engaged Sam to assist with social media analytics. I chose Sam because I knew of her work through a trusted business connection of mine and knew her to be uber efficient and great at what she does! I found working with Sam to be exactly that. And what was also great about working with Sam is, she is so easy to deal with - great communication and friendly and readily offers useful suggestions and ideas for improvements to support clients– just what you need in a VA."
