Alyssa S.

Marketing Assistant

“...they were an absolute dream team to work with. Even though our Credit Union only did the 8 week program, I got so much out of it to continue what they helped us start. The incredible women that run this company are extremely knowledgeable and so thorough! Every step of the way is so well planned but also flexible if need be. I would definitely recommend them to anybody looking for a social media or content marketing overhaul.”

“Meredith gave an excellent presentation about social media. She has a knack for making something that can be confusing and overwhelming understandable. She provided our credit unions with ideas that they could immediately take back to their shop and implement.”
