What my clients had to say…

“We were in a pinch and Margaret was the perfect fit! She jumped right in and wrestled massive copy down to 15 words or less in no time flat. She’s easy to work with, quick with ideas, and you know the deadlines are always going to be met. Quick, smart, and talented.”  Leslie Yancey, Biltmore Web Editor

“Margaret knows how to get PR! She wrote relevant, interesting and newsworthy press releases and in one to two months she got us from little tidbits of press to big exposure in several publications in the markets we requested. She doesn’t just send out press releases, but follows through by calling and talking to the right editors. This made all the difference in the world. Publications that passed us up in the past changed their minds once she got them on the phone. Margaret was recommended to me, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to others!” Susan Devitt and Tom Gallo, GalloLea Organics

“We were opening new facilities at the other end of the state. Our media contacts in that region were few and far between, and we needed expert help in getting the word out. Margaret Marchuk helped us put together a public awareness campaign that cost almost nothing, yet was right on target. She pitched the story to her statewide network of established contacts in education, government, and the media, generating interest and appeal that resulted in broadcast interviews and newspaper articles in major media outlets. We also had a huge boost in public attendance for our Grand Opening ceremony, thanks to her work.” Christy McCarley, Public Information Office NC Center for the Advancement of Teaching Cullowhee and Ocracoke, NC

“We retained Margaret to redo our website and do PR for our public performance which increased our visibility and ticket sales. We also retained her to call on new venues for booking our performances and represent our group.”  Rita Hayes, Braidstream Music

“We put together a magazine that required a bit of research and writing involved. Margaret wrote about half the articles, and she did a yeoman’s job of gathering a huge amount of data, interviewing people for quotes, coming up with compelling story angles and then writing each article with a freshness that kept the magazine interesting throughout. It was a pleasure working with such a professional.”   Tony Austin, Creative Director, Lake Toxaway Company

 “Margaret is a highly creative, well-versed marketing communications professional with a talent for developing successful, fully-integrated campaigns that work! A masterful networker, she provides direction, counsel and a connection to virtually any creative service needed…on time and on budget.” Susan Jarrett, Operations Manager, SustainCommWorld Green Media Show

“Margaret is wonderful at taking the bull by the horns.  I enjoyed her ability to take on our Art Affair fundraising project and summarize just what was needed and when.  She is a master at keeping a project, and those involved, on schedule.”  Jennifer Ramming, Executive Director, Open Doors of Asheville

“When Margaret was our Director of Corporate Underwriting, she recognized the need for us to have a cost-effective design for our Media Kit. She wrote and designed one so that we would be able to update or add different elements as needed without additional design charges. This Media Kit has served us well for a decade and garnered us many compliments from our colleagues and underwriters – as well as help us increase our underwriting sales 50%.”  Ed Subkis, General Manager, WCQS Public Radio

Margaret Marchuk’s work as associate editor for my natural healing/green building publication was always prompt, professional and creatively inspired. I always feel that I can count on her for great writing and editing work on whatever subject arises, whenever I need her. It’s great to work with a professional writer that I can trust with challenging projects. Thank you, Margaret!   Erin Everett, Founder & Publisher, New Life Journal

“Margaret has provided invaluable editing and marketing advice over the years. She has a splendid sense of language and style, along with good sense and a most pleasing workplace personality. I can recommend Margaret enthusiastically.”  Gerald Le Van, The Le Van Company

Margaret developed a marketing plan to re-energize my practice. Acting as project manager, she oversaw and assisted in creating a new website and in writing content for it. In addition, she identified what was newsworthy within my practice and promoted it via public relations and social media. Dr. Matilda Sienko, Gentle Family Chiropractic

Margaret was terrific at helping me improve the copy on my website.  She created interesting and customer-appealing jewelry descriptions. She is responsive and on time with her work.  I really appreciated her help in making my website as professional as possible. Amy Brandenburg, Owner, Ambra Arts
