We have worked with Advokate on several projects. The work she has done consistently receives comments from visitors to our theater which is exactly what we want our marketing materials to do! Her work is original, eye-catching and perfectly fits our vision. She was flexible and patient with us, helping us through the process of creating a marketing campaign. Every time we needed her, no matter if it was to ask a question, set a meeting or to change our entire design concept, she was there for us within 24 hours assuring us that she was on top of it and the final product would be perfect. It always was! If you’re looking for marketing materials, a logo, website or any other creative services, Advokate is ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT COMPANY!
Kate recently built a beautiful website for my custom window treatment business. Using photos of my projects, she captured the sophisticated look I need to grab the attention of potential clients. I feel confident the website reflects the passion I have for my business. The project was completed in just a few weeks, and she gave me the tools to make additions to the website as I have new photos and information to share. Kate was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Advokate!
Also, I received a wonderful compliment on the website today and just wanted to pass it along. My customer said its the nicest she has seen, and I thought that was true, and very nice of her to say.
Kate is wonderful to work with. Talented, organized – couldn’t be better.
It has been such a pleasure working with Kate and Advokate! I had a vision for my candle company and she was able to help and guide me on all aspects of branding for my business. She was quick to answer my many emails which made me feel secure knowing she was on it! Not only did she help create my new logo and labels, she created a beautiful e-commerce website for my business that I absolutely love! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to start or boost their business to a higher level.

From a beautifully designed logo, to switching my site over to a new WordPress theme, to all the little odds and ends along the way; I love working with Advokate. Anytime something pops up that I need help with or when I come up with a new idea I always receive a quick response. I’ve been very happy with the quality of work and the attention paid to each detail. I don’t know where I’d be without Advokate!

When our website was hijacked by a new kind of hacking, a “Pharma hack”, Advokate researched the problem and had a fix in place within two days. All of Advokate’s services have been like that; fast, friendly and effective.
Due to your efforts with my digital photos, both of my paintings were juried by Erin Coe into the upcoming Shirt Factory Gallery exhibit! Thank you so much, Kate!
The flyer you made for the Food and Farm Festival has made a positive impact on all who have seen it! It is amazing the response I got after sharing it on my Facebook page. I have gotten 31 shares so far! I am very excited and wanted to thank you again!
Kate at Advokate is our personal hero of the day! Thank you not only for helping us get our website up and running, but also for helping with the little snafus that confuse us, yet take you mere minutes to fix! We couldn’t do this without you!
Have I told you lately how much your help and support mean to me, and how I love that you kick me in the butt every now and then to make me keep working toward this dream even though it isn’t always easy or fun? Because you are awesome, and I don’t think I could do this without you!
I really appreciate how you try to help me fix my problems myself before paying you to do it. When you could totally just take my word for it that I need to just throw money at all my problems and I wouldn’t even consider that a problem is solvable my techno-phobic me. You’re the epitome of honest business practices and that’s why I feel comfortable working with you!
We are so fortunate to have crossed paths with you! I can not wait to move ahead! Thank you for bringing our vision to life!
Kate’s helped me build 2 outstanding website in the last 3 months. Her knowledge and assistance thoughtout the process has been invaluable. It truly was a great experience! I highly recommend Kate to anyone who is looking for any web/graphic design.
I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for Adirondack Audio & Video in the past eight months. We initially hired you to design for us a new company web page (www.adkav.com), and the result is eye-catching, informative, and perfectly represents the style and tone we were looking for. We have received many positive comments on the site since it was launched. Needless to say, we were very impressed with your creativity and web design skills. Moreover, we were equally impressed with your diligence, professionalism, and ability to make the entire process both easy and enjoyable.
Since then, you have also helped us organize and promote the Grand Opening of our retail showroom, which was accompanied by an art show entitled “The Power of Music.” This was an ambitious project involving a nation-wide call for art, a judging process, the logistics of receiving original artwork from around the country, hanging the show, promoting it in the regional press, and organizing all the minutia of the opening reception itself. Throughout this entire complicated process, you stayed on top of all the details, solved whatever problems arose, and ultimately produced an event that was an unqualified success. You were, in a word, indispensable; we truly couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much for putting so much effort into it?and for maintaining your infectious enthusiasm throughout the process!
I speak for everyone here at Adirondack Audio & Video when I say that hiring Advokate was and continues to be one of the best decisions we have made as a company. I am happy that ADKAV was one of your first clients and I look forward to a long professional relationship as both our companies grow over time.
When I ran out of time to reach out to new customers, Kate came up with cost effective marketing that I would have never been able to implement without her expertise. Thanks ADVOKATE!
Kate provided excellent services in support of my efforts to launch my first eNewsletter using Mail Chimp software. She helped me format, design, create and issue this first eNewsletter in a way that exceeded my expectations. She works extraordinarily fast in the software and allowed me to watch so I could learn how to do some of the work myself in the future. She was there when I needed her and delivered exceptional results.
Kate has totally transformed my business to one that is marketed world-wide. She has taken me by the hand and taught me what I need to know about website maintenance, Facebook and Etsy. She is always there to answer my million questions. Kate has freed up my time to spend on what I do best, while she quickly and efficiently took care of what I can’t and don’t like to do at a very reasonable cost. Truly, Kate is first rate!

I do want to thank you, Kate, for all your help. You have been invaluable to me. I still have so much to learn, but now I can at least function on Etsy. Without you I would still be living in prehistoric times.

Reliability, creativity and quality – these were the virtues I needed from a business facilitator. The Advokate gave me all three and so much more. From publications to parties and promotion Kate Austin-Avon delivers an on-time product wrapped in professionalism with charm and style. I highly recommend that you put her talents to use in your business.
Kate Austin-Avon as operator and owner at Advokate has provided me with a great creative design and helpful advice in setting up my blog site. I would recommend her to anyone interested in help with artistic designs and getting definite results in marketing needs.
I have known Kate for only a couple of years, but in that time, I have discovered not only a wonderful friend, but a creative and energetic individual. Her design style is fresh and exciting, and she has some wonderful ideas for her clients. I definitely recommend her for any project!
Had a great event in no small part thanks to Advokate! Rock on Austin-Avon!
I have seldom seen such a combination of skill, talent, speed and cost effectiveness as Advokate brings to any project. We plan on using Kate’s services as often as demanded in the future.
kate has been waving her magic wand over pretty much every aspect involved in the marketing of my creations. while i can make stuff and love it, i am a failure at marketing myself. she took over photography of my creations, designing my websites…you get the picture. when kate took over it was such a huge relief for me. cuz i was clueless. and she was very clued. and very very good at everything marketing and getting your words and creations out there. i totally credit her for making things happen for me. and she is a great cheerleader and moral supporter to boot. kate totally rocks!

Advokate has substantially increased my business as well as my ability to provide professional services to my clients. No matter how large or small the task, Advokate makes my professional life easier and less stressful. I recommend Advokate to family, friends, and colleagues alike.
You won’t regret asking Kate to help out! She’s already done what would take me several hours, time away from my soon-to-be-hubby, and time to make my art, in just a few affordable hours. I hope that she can help you the way she has helped me!
Advokate has been a blessing for me and my business. Not only does Advokate go out of their way to please their customers, they realize that as a customer we are more than artists and a business, we are real people with financial situations, families, and second jobs. Advokate has accommodated me on several occasions from designing car magnets, post cards, and flyers to picking them up from the printer and hand delivering them to local galleries. They have advertised for me as well as updated my website from time to time when the realities of life just don’t allow time for me to do this. I would trust Advokate with almost any job that needs to be done with my business, hands down, without a doubt.
