“There are many things I like about working with Erin. First, she spent the time to understand our brand and position. Second, she also gave us some feedback about what people will look for on the website and in the products (holiday villas, in my case). Third, she knew how to present the information to her audience and engage with them. Her posts are honest, engaging, and you can see how she well she communicates with her followers. Over the course of our collaboration, it’s easy to communicate and arrange everything with Erin. Above all, she delivers 🙂 Thanks a lot for the collaboration, Erin.”
