Customer Feedback:

“Krista reviewed my website thoroughly and provided constructive feedback to help me narrow my focus. Her review of the site, followed by in-depth discussions, helped me to better understand the audience I was trying to speak to, and develop the voice that best connected with them. Krista provides focused and intentional writing guidance and I am very pleased with the results. Shortly after I re-wrote the messaging on my website, I received a lead from an internet search. When I asked my client why they chose to work with me, they stated that, “it was the wording on your website that made it very clear to me that you would be the right type of consultant for me to work with.” – Elle, SmartSite Strategies
