good things About us
As a California transplant by the way of the Midwest, Allison Day believes that a well made meal can turn the day around. Hungry people are her favorite people, whether it's for great food or great ideas. As an early adopter of social media platforms, Allison has been knee deep in social media and content development for close to 10 years. From the Napa Valley destination marketing world to the food crowdfunding world, she is now the go-to girl for planning and executing all things social media and content. She founded Good Things, Done Right in 2015 when she saw a demand for more authentic voices and straight forward work ethic in the marketing world.
Allison's top tip: Learn your demographic so you can choose the best networks to reach them, then do your research to find out where they're spending their time. B2Bs should be on LinkedIn and Facebook. Retailers should focus on Yelp!, Instagram and Pinterest while, media and entertainment are finding a lot of success on Facebook and SnapChat.

Jen Schmitz has been writing and producing creative content since 2014. She has written for VSCO, Lonny, and contributed to countless other outlets in and out of wine country. She is a lover of all things art, culture and wine, and prefers to "summer" in Napa Valley to taste all it has to offer and to escape foggy San Francisco any time she can. She's the second in command when it comes to social execution. Working closely with Allison, she hones and curates the best content to share on client's platforms.
Jen's top tip: Scheduling your content gives you a cushion in case of unforeseen circumstances and ensures you don’t forget to post regularly. Consistency is key to social media marketing success, and scheduling is the best way to make sure you maintain it.
Lyndsey Helling is our numbers gal. Residing in the midwest with her husband and son, Lyndsey is a clothing designer and marathon runner. She and Allison met when they worked together in an art studio. She now handles all reporting and analysis for GTDR. She and Allison work closely on assessing the best next steps to optimize client's social strategy and execution.
Lyndsey's top tip: Keep in mind the indirect benefits of social media. One of the most important things to remember is that not all ROI is going to be financial. Social media creates a relationship with potential customers, which then grows with engagement, which hopefully leads to paying customers.
