“The strategic platform analysis was very beneficial in helping me strengthen my platform by pinpointing what was working, where attention was needed, and advice on how to improve it. Definitely worthwhile!”

Sometimes, scandal is just a sin away…

“The Strategic Analysis of my platform was so helpful! As an author who’s focused on writing, and juggling all the other parts of my life, I don’t have a lot of time to spend on digging into the nuts and bolts of social media, book distribution etc. But these are important parts of being an indie author – and Nancy’s analysis helped me put together a to-do list that’s easy for me to see where I can pump up a profile or target a book for marketing. It’s definitely a valuable service to me.”
