Client Testimonials

"I worked with Savanna for several posts on my blog, The Happy Arkansan. Savanna was timely, and her content was spot on. I didn’t have to make any severe adjustments to the work that she shared with me. She even uploaded her work directly to my WordPress account. It made my job a million times easier.

As her content has had time to mature on my website, I’ve noticed some great movement with it. Her content has helped me rank for keywords like Mapiful Review and After-Work Activities, which I am excited about. She wrote a piece for my website about self-rejection that has done exceptionally well on Google getting me top spots on multiple keywords related to this topic that people in my blog’s demographic deal with.

I am looking forward to continuing to see growth with the content that she wrote for my lifestyle blog. Savanna comes highly recommended by me."
