TESTIMONIALS:

♥ Masha from Delezhen says:
“My relationship with Maggie began randomly when she tweeted a Aquamarine Birthstone Ring of mine in anticipation of her first born child. It’s been so lovely seeing Maggie through her beautiful foray into motherhood. Partnering up in a celebratory giveaway proved to be very successful, with loads of traffic from her site and many of the same rings sold that very day! You can tell that Maggie’s readers love and trust her word, and have had nothing but good vibes come my way from her referral. It was a great pleasure to work together, and I would do so again in a heartbeat!”

♥ Leigh-Ann from Home Ec Online + Freckled Nest says:
“Home Ec Online partnered with Maggie Whitley Designs earlier this year and we saw an immediate increase in traffic, brand recognition and sales. Maggie readers were very welcoming and the Maggie Whitley Designs team made our sponsorship month fun, affordable and a real pleasure! Maggie cares about people & creative life and I really felt that in my experience :)”

♥ Katie from The Small Change Project says:
“After my extremely helpful mentorship session with Maggie I decide to advertise on MWD. I have seen consistent traffic from her site and working with both her and Cambria has been a joy. I love being a part of her community. It is so apparent that Maggie wants to spread the word and the love to everyone involved.”

♥ Heather from Just Lovely Things says:
“Maggie Whitley Designs has been a huge inspiration not only in helping with the traffic numbers to my own blog (she is my highest traffic driver!) but also in knowing that another indie business owner like myself can follow their dreams and watch them come true! I’m so happy for the day I found Maggie and if I ever forget it I just look at the awesome bag I bought from her!”

♥ Chelsea from HorseFeathers says:
“I love advertising with Maggie Whitley Designs! Maggie does an amazing job of helping spread the word about her sponsor through different social media outlets and I have seen a huge increase in traffic directly from the MWD blog. You can tell Maggie genuinely cares about helping others grow their business. If you are considering advertising to grow your blog or business I highly recommend doing so with Maggie!”

♥ Dani from Good Natured by Dani says:
“Sponsoring MWD has been great for my shop and blog. Maggie’s readers are fabulous, and I received a consistent stream of traffic from her site. Every time she mentioned my shop on Facebook, I would experience a jump in views and fans. Maggie truly wants her sponsors to succeed and goes out of her way to be helpful. Plus, she is so sweet!”

♥ Dee from Red Letter Words says:
“I don’t think I can put into adequate words how much I love partnering with Maggie Whitley Designs. The MWD community is nothing short of amazing. And Maggie being a blogger as well as a brand really gets it. Her posts are heartfelt and she truly has a passion for helping other small mompreneur businesses thrive. MWD is a well thought out and intentional place for any business to advertise!”

♥ Kristi from Barn Owl Primitives says:
“Advertising my shop with Maggie was such a treat! In a short period of time, I increased my shop traffic and made connections with some fabulous people. For my feature, Maggie asked some fabulous questions that really helped me focus on providing a unique glimpse inside my business. It was so fun to have the opportunity to share a little bit about myself and my business with her readers! Not having a blog, I only use Facebook to share bits and pieces, and it’s impossible to ever link back to anything. I’m so excited to have this feature as a link that i can share with my followers and customers in the future!”
