“I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how awesome the Woman to Woman magazine ad has been for us. The positive feedback we’ve received from the community has been amazing! We’ve had everyone from the soccer team and swim team parents to even salon owners and printing company salespeople tell us how fun it is to see our ad. Other realtors are even complimenting us on the piece. Building “buzz” is the goal for us but the response has been more than I expected. Thank you so much for creating such a fabulous publication!!!”
