Recent reviews

Hedi was professional and completed the task on time. She made her style match our writing requirements and her copy needed minimal editing. I would highly recommend her!

I'll say upfront that our brief was pretty tough - StreetHawk works on the leading edge of retention and growth in mobile so there is not much genuine content around. Heidi was great in how she worked with us to get the raw material, bullets of ideas and transformed technical detail into something readable and informative. Heidi was responsive and creative and always stayed on point and the extensive writing and social experience she brought meant that we were not managing the delivered content.

Heidi is extremely responsive in terms of communication. Her writing style fits perfectly with our brand and she has the knowledge we're looking for with a writer in the ecommerce space.
