Service Description

"I would highly, highly recommend succinctsuccess for any similar writing assignment. She did a fantastic job for us and in the time alloted. The guide she worked on was very technical in nature. BUT, we needed it to be marketing oriented and reader-friendly. She accomplished those goals, and then some. She obviously did a tremendous amount of research to get the final piece together. Once it was complete, it was not only right on target, but taught us a few things about our own product. Further, it was written in a voice that we requested so that it would be entertaining to the reader and informative. We could not have picked a better author."

"I asked Shannon to write a script for me for my work and she did a wonderful job. I couldn't be happier. She is very conscientious and professional. There will be another project coming up in a few months and I will for sure hire her again. On a scale of 1-10. She is a 10+. Thank you for your hard work, Shannon!"
