„Mashup Communications believes in a happy ending with every new story. Especially when it came to creating an article on the Freelancer Compass at Wikipedia, they impressively demonstrated their optimism. Despite strong headwinds from the Wikipedia community, they did not give up and successfully argued for the relevance of the article.“

Thomas Maas, CEO Freelancermap

„Our initial situation was that we had great products, but no one to help us communicate this to the world outside. Mashup Communications provides us with the best possible advice and ensures that we are always represented in the media with interesting content.“

Thomas Wrobel, CEO validio GmbH & Co KG (Clever Dialer)


“The change from our first main contact, who had done a great job for us, to a new team was not easy for us at first. We were well-rehearsed with our consultant and skeptical whether the cooperation with a new team of consultants would develop in exactly the same way. But then we were really pleasantly surprised by the mentality and dedication of our new contacts at Earlybirds. At Mashup Communications, you simply notice that each consultant brings great, individual strengths to the table that enrich the collaboration.”

Paul-Alexander Thies, CEO of Billomat


„Although a publication topic of our marketing has already been rejected several times, the team has persisted and managed to get it published in the end. In addition, every suggestion is received with enthusiasm and the team does not allow frustration to arise even when topics turn out to be dead ends.“

Nadja Peer, speaker of the publishing management at Olympia Verlag


„We are always happy to be surprised with spontaneous ideas. Several times a year, the team pitches good ideas and provides inspiration for us as well.“

Naomi Owusu, CEO tickaroo
