Robin absolutely focused where my attention should be to get the most out of the publicity that will be generated by the launch. She reviewed my website, my press kit, my social media as well as my schedule for the coming year from marketing to production to sales and industry connections.

“I started Reel Life With Jane, home to my syndicated family movie & TV reviews, years ago, but it wasn’t until I hired Robin that things really started to take off. I’m a writer. That’s what I do.

Robin helped me bring all of that together in a customized way that works for me and my business.
