I highly recommend Christine to anyone wanting to build or strengthen their social media presence, wanting to support their business with systems, and wanting someone to hold them accountable in achieving goals so that their internal business tasks get done and done well, while the owner focuses on business development.
Christine is competent and consequent (both German terminology), and the fact that she is a native English speaker is a huge advantage to me. She is dedicated, motivated and committed to helping me achieve my business goals. Thanks, Christine, for supporting my success in 2014. :)))

I was very impressed by Christine’s suggestions for Google+. The content of the text she suggested to draw interest in my post was *right on* the mark. When I worked with her I thought, “she knows her stuff”. A bonus is that she is FAST and she can help create structure that I so need in my business, like a thorough but do-able social media calendar. Everything she delivered was professional and has a nice design. I appreciated her level of detail in her research and transparency in the process.
I recommend her to anyone looking for a VA – especially those who work specifically with expats. She is not just a VA but a sparring partner.

As a writer, I have enough on my desktop without worrying about technical issues. Christine has eliminated needless fretting from my daily life. Now, with her help, my over-worked brain remains free to concentrate on the creative part of my business. I’ve achieved increased sales and more brand recognition. Personally, having monthly deadlines has helped me develop a more disciplined approach to marketing efforts.
I would recommend Spark Virtual Assistance to anyone with limited tech skills (or limited time) who wants to push her business to the next level.

I would recommend Christine to anyone who wants to avoid the hit-and-miss search for help and the time-consuming frustration of struggling with tasks that she, the expert, can get done far more easily and successfully. It is absolutely wonderful to see my free offer and opt-in form beautifully designed and installed on my website so that I was able to get my first subscribers!
In addition to being a truly nice person, Christine is a really clear and responsive communicator with creative ideas and helpful feedback. I felt comfortable asking for help and knew that I could count on her to get the work done.

Christine is quick, reliable and provides me with useful information about online tools and how to use new technologies. She has good ideas and is always glad to help! I’ve improved my understanding of social media connectivity. Also I’ve learned how to write and illustrate blog texts. I like the “extras” that Christine sends out tucked into her newsletters. I would recommend her for entrepreneurs who want to build their business, as there’s no better way today than with social media and online tools.

After working with Christine, I have a website I really like and have pleasure going back to, which means it is more likely to be kept up-to-date, as well as a logo that is modern, reflects how I view my business, and tools that make it easy to use so far. She has convinced me that with her help I can have more of a digital presence. Her efficiency is impressive, I could learn from her use of digital tools! She is definitely a role model in that area. I would recommend her to anybody who is struggling with the digital world – or simply who does not have the time to develop marketing and administrative tools.

After working with Christine, I did my first webinar! The accountability and structure she provided was key to that. After I signed up with her, I didn’t feel like I could cancel the webinar! I liked best how straightforward she was. I felt like getting the webinar done when I had a step-by-step process was crucial. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a push in the right direction in terms of their business.

I liked that Christine explained what she did and she had good ideas and tips (e.g. design of texts and pop ups). I liked that the work was focused with quick results and that we could do everything online and on the phone.
I would recommend Christine to other people who are creating their own businesses and need help in online administration.

Christine is competent, efficient, and effective. She knows her stuff when it comes to creating a professional presence online. I recommend her because I find she offers value, and she is reliable and highly professional. Also I think she has an expertise which helps an independent professional such as myself build a more professional online presence.

Christine Funke served as the Vice President of the American International Women’s Club of Cologne for two years. The VP manages ALL club communications – this involves sending out two weekly e-mail newsletters along with special announcements and any other information that needs to be communicated to the membership. With a membership of over 260 women, this is no small undertaking. When our website required a major overhaul, Christine stepped up and took over the task – redesigning the layout, adding and revising content, writing blog posts, setting up more functional and user-friendly event pages, and overall ensuring that the website served our members in the most efficient way possible. If there was anything technical that needed handling, Christine took care of it. Trust me, this woman can do anything!
