Client Testimonials

The Broken Spoke

“Social Ape has taking our growth to the next level. With their expertise in social media and reaching out to a large clientele that we were limited to, they have taking our difficult event-driven business to a completely different level. We are now known as a complete restaurant with amazing food, exceptional guest service, terrific event space, the place to taste our locally made and award winning spirits, as well as the only distillery in North Carolina with its own lounge and restaurant. We owe a lot to Social Ape and their marketing team!”

"We've absolutely loved working with Social Ape Marketing! The entire team has been dedicated to help us find our niche in Charlotte's restaurant scene, which has been difficult to do on our own. Through just our short time together, we've seen not only an incredible growth in our day-to-day sales, but our event business is thriving with a 20% boost!

They're always quick to update us on new coverage and opportunities, but the monthly PR report they deliver is seriously impressive. Not only do they constantly pitch us for traditional coverage, but Social Ape has helped us orchestrate several special events that have been key to our growth. April has really put together a unique team who are clearly experts in their arena, but there's something to be said about just how personable they are too. We can't recommend them enough! "


Rich & Bennett

“Working with April and the team at Social Ape Marketing has been a wonderful experience. April has proven time and time again that she is a true expert in the field of social media. Her experience, knowledge and know-how has allowed our team to focus on our core business initiatives and feel confident that our social media needs are being met. Since working with Social Ape we have seen a significant growth, both by connections and activity, on all of our social media platforms. I would gladly recommend April and her team to anyone looking to take the next step in their social media marketing strategies!”

Tandur Indian Kitchen

“The Social Ape team has been great to work with. Not knowing the Charlotte market as we are a brand from Tennessee, it was nice to work with someone who is deeply rooted and has connections like the Social Ape team does. They’re always eager to learn about how they’re doing and always willing to adjust their strategies.”

- HP Patel, Tandur Indian Kitchen

what our clients say about Social ape

“I really love how the Social Ape engages with Influencers on behalf of our brand. Social Ape takes the tedious part out of managing Influencer Programs. This is this only way to do these programs!”

- Lauren Gomez - Director or Marketing, Commerce at Positec Tool Group

“April, Melissa, and the team at Social Ape has shown me the true value of proper social media management through their focused marketing strategies, custom campaigns, and unmatched attention to detail.  Social Ape is responsible for my company’s entire social media presence and they’ve done a wonderful job getting us connected with relevant Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest communities.  I highly recommend Social Ape Marketing - their talent and expertise is worth every penny!”

- Jamie Lickert, Major Accounts Manager of Cleanroom Bedding

“As the operator of our independently owned restaurant, social media is a must! But with all the operations, human resources, scheduling and just running the restaurant; social media just seemed too complicated and took up too much time. I can’t say enough about April Smith and her company regarding how incredibly current and up to date she kept us from day to day when it came to Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. She gave us an edge that we did not think was possible – and she did it for what we considered to be as reasonably priced as you will find. I can’t tell you how many doors she has opened as far as branding and new customers – while communicating to current customers our daily events, specials, and current news. I would credit April 100% for our incredibly rounded social media pieces along with smoothing out all communications regarding social media. I would not hesitate to recommend April for anyone pursuing using an outside talent to operate their social media. Thank you April. #socialmediaphenom

“I really enjoyed the one-on-one social media training session with Social Ape because it allowed me the opportunity to show her all of the different fan pages that I’m managing and ask specific questions on the best practices to reach my target demographic and build an audience for each. They gave me some great tips and advice that I have started implementing into my social media strategies and I can already see the positive results. Definitely a great experience!

- Zack Luttrell, Founder of Roaring Riot

“We hired Social Ape about a month ago and our entire team is now kicking ourselves for not having hired Social Ape a year ago!  As business owners and professionals, we can only be so good at so many things, and need to do a better job of leveraging true specialty experts to help take our businesses to the next level.  Social Ape does this beautifully.  Within the first week we had two new customers that generated $6,000+ in revenue for us, dozens of valuable leads and our brand presence more than quadrupled, all the while our team is now able to focus on the things that WE do best.  MASSIVE THANKS AND KUDOS to the Social Ape team!”
