“Rob Eagar’s expertise helped me develop a new brand, that not only reflects the way I feel when I write, but makes my readers ‘lose their heart in the Amish life’ when reading my novels. I also appreciate the effort Rob put into creating an exciting, new website for me. It was beyond my expectations and includes everything I asked for and more. Within the first month of launching my new website, I received the highest 30-day visitor traffic ever – a 66% increase over my previous best month!
