Web Page Copy

Maralee Nelder says, “I do think that the site has been more informative and beneficial than I had initially considered it.  I really do like mine.” She added that Penni “prompted me to think about the information I wanted to put into public view. [She] had great creative instincts.”  You can read Maralee’s full story here.

Additional Web Page Copy

For Mary Thompson’s Ayurveda website, Penni wrote all the page copy, and continues to provide marketing guidance to this long-time teacher but new entrepreneur.  (Mary writes the blog posts and articles.)
